Curly » Pink Peplum Dress with V Back

Stacy London from TLC’s What Not To Wear has drilled into me that Peplum is a universally flattering look. I decided to test this theory when I saw this blush pink Peplum dress from Zara.

I do believe there is potential in the peplum look. I do think the material of this dress is not as flattering. The stretch causes the dress to crease in odd spots like under the arms, the back and around the waist. Another is construction of the dress is not durable for the price. I already see threading around the flare of the peplum.

The one thing I like is my hair in this picture. I rarely do anything besides straight or loose waves. I do like these tighter curls. My problem is that I can never recreate the hairstyle after it’s done. Every time I pick up that curler, my hair comes out differently. If I have no picture of how I want my hair to look that day, my hair turns out better than I could hope for. If I try to finagle my hair into a certain look, it NEVER happens.
