Houndstooth Peplum -- Retro Inspired
Something about the shape and styling of this houndstooth peplum has always felt very Mad-Men to me.
Maybe it's the heavy fabric, maybe it's the shape, maybe it's the simple black and white houndstooth pattern. I love wearing it with stovepipe or straight leg pants/jeans and today I dressed it up with a bright lip and some pearls and heels. Just like June Cleaver would - if she ever wore anything other than a full skirt, petticoat, blouse and apron.
To try and keep this outfit from becoming too costume-y I put on some mod earrings and stuck with a simple black/white/grey colour scheme.
This outfit is perfect for meeting the girls for coffee - or if you're like me and all of your plans are trashed because BOTH of your vehicles end up out of commission on the same day then it's a perfect outfit for hanging around the house feeling sorry for yourself and binge watching Alphas. Either or, really.
