1 Peplum Top. Worn 3 Ways-

I'm always looking for a great versatile item that I can get a lot of wear in.  I hate those spur of the moment purchases that seem like such a fab find at the moment and then you wear it once and it hangs in your closet, cast to the shadows and neglected for another decade. So therefore try to choose items that you can make versatile I follow this rule of thumb, "if you can not think of at least 2 occasions or ways you can wear the item in question- put it down". Awesome wardrobe pieces deserve to be worn and go out and help you live a fabulous life, make sure to pick ones that fit yours.

I just found out about Kensie, a super awesome young contemporary brand that specializes in hip versatile clothing.  I was delighted to receive this peplum top as a gift from them and I wanted to show how versatile this peplum could really be. I love the funky pattern with the coral and violet-cobalt touched detailing, it also is lined nicely with a silky underlay. Check out Kensie's wonderfully pretty, yet edgy line here online, follow them here on twitter or simply shop them at your nearest Macy's, Lord & Taylor's or Nordstrom's.  So in styling this peplum top, I wanted to create a day look, an evening look, and lastly a look that is both, fun and versatile.  I think the ability to flip a look around using one item with these three easy ways is the key to a intelligently functional wardrobe.

I've also completely fallen in love with their Fall/Winter '13 Line, particularly these items....
