Peplum Paradise

I have several current obsessions when it comes to fashion, but when it comes to skirts I have to say that I am in LOVE with the peplum style.  It is so sexy and feminine, yet sophisticated and polished.  Here is one from Alice and Olivia that I love:
It is definitely on my list of what to make next.  I also love a great tulip skirt.  I love that they can be dressed up with heels, or be totally casual with flats or flip-flops.  I just finished one in a linen with an exposed zipper in the back.  It's Simplicity 2451 View D.  (And inverted pleats!  My mistake, but I love it anyway)!

It's comfortable, fits really well, and I love the pockets.  The exposed zipper is a little scratchy on the back of my legs, but I really like how it gives this skirt a bit of an edge.

Off to finish preparing for my event tomorrow!
