Zara Textured Peplum Top / LOFT Leopard-Print Skirt / Kate Spade Black Glitter Bow Belt (on sale!) / gifted Sequin Pavé Horn Bracelet / Jones New York Wedges / ASOS Envelope Clutch (similar)

Thanks for snapping my photos, Tracy!

Outfit perfect! Would love to see how you do a hair or makeup tutorial. Whatever you’re doing is fabulous!

Thank you! A lot of readers have been asking… I’m not that comfortable on camera, but I will try to conquer my video fear over the holidays and do some tutorials! :)

Thanks! :)

Shoegal Out In The World December 12, 2012 at 6:22 pm

Your outfit is so great… I love your jewel toned peplum top & how you combined them with a leopard print pencil skirt… However, I would choose instead of suede wedges a pair of patent wedges for a more glamorous look…

This outfit is precious! The plum peplum (yay for alliteration!) is such a rich color.
