Weekly Wishlist: Peplum Pretties

I stayed up late last night to watch the Oscars. My two favorite dresses both had a peplum style waist line.

I love the vintage look of peplums, and their ability to be formal or casual, but I haven't tried any peplum items on yet. I'm not sure how the style is going to work on my body shape, but I'm feeling inspired after seeing Tina fey work it on the red carpet last night. Here are a few more casual peplum items I've got my eye on.

I think this shirt would look great with a pencil skirt for work, or dressed down with some skinny jeans and flats on the weekend. I'd add a brightly colored skinny belt to it for a pop of color.

I love this dress. The modest neckline and long length would make it a great workwear dress, but the green color and slight peplum make it a little more fun than the typical black or gray shift dress. Available in sizes 2-18. I've never ordered from Dorothy Perkins, but I may have to give it a shot.

This top is so fun! I've been wanting to add one or two leopard print items to my closet. I can never justify spending over $40 on a shirt, but if the price goes down this shirt might make an appearance in my closet.

This A-line dress with a slight peplum detail at the waist feels a little more safe to me than the exaggerated peplum shapes. I really love the rich deep purple color and all of the structure and detail on the bodice.

How do you feel about peplums? What were your favorite Oscar gowns?
