While the fashion world goes crazy over peplum, I decided to go back to the 80’s for my inspiration. I found this skirt/top duo on my thrifting adventure two weeks ago, as soon as I walked into the store it was sitting all alone, I swooped it up before anyone else had a chance – I was so fortunate, for $5.99 I managed to walk away with a skirt, top and belt all designed for Barbie! (No really, I am certain I had a Barbie outfit seemingly identical to this). Although this is a throw back to the 80’s – it is so funny to me how the print is 100% transitional to now, floral is everywhere for summer and the fit of this outfit is perfect for me. I am in love. Clearly.

Tomorrow marks a very exciting day, I am speaking on a blogging panel for French Connection and America’s Next Top Model Live! — if you’re in Toronto and wanna stop by let me know! Should be an awesome weekend.
