I was thrilled when Otte (one of my favorite boutiques in NYC) asked me to collaborate on a little DIY. We decided to spruce up one of their classic T Tops, embellishing it for holiday. The peplum trend is so hot right now so I thought… why not make a feather peplum!? One of the best things about this project is that peplums can be hard to wear if the peplum doesn’t hit you properly. I personally have a long torso so tend to look silly in peplum tops as the peplum hits too high on me. When you make your own, you get to decide where the peplum goes… ensuring that you get the most flattering results possible.
P.S. Otte is giving all S&S readers a little discount when you purchase the ballet pink T Top! Just use code SS25. Ends 12/31/12
