LoveBrownSugar Chic: Peplum Pop

So I stumbled into Macy's one sunny afternoon on the hunt for a fancy dress I could wear to a friend's birthday shindig. I feasted my eyes on this Bar III sleveless peplum dress (on SALE for $49.99 now) and fell in love.

You guys already know how much I love the peplum silhouette because it flatters my figure. This dress kind of combines all my favorite things - color, peplum, and a touch of romantic lace.

I paired it with a hot pink leather clutch that I scored at Nordstrom Rack during my trip to Atlanta last October.

Who says you can't wear red and pink in the same outfit? Just make sure both colors are bright enough to contrast with each other well for a color-blocking effect.

What's cool about this dress is that you can dress it up or down. I decided to add some edge to this girly/professional look by adding a leather jacket to the mix.

I topped off the look with my floral cork sandals from Nine West. Scored these last season during their sale!
