Ethnic Printed Peplum

I love pencil skirts. More specifically, high-waist pencil skirts. But, because of my booty and hips, I don't necessarily always feel comfortable wearing them. I feel like a lot of my body is on display and it can become very hyper-sexual very quickly if I am not careful. I'm not fully at ease with the glances, winks, and mischievous smiles yet.

Now, peplum skirts, shirts, jackets, and dresses have been exceedingly popular for the past year or so. And, although I really love the style I never really invested in buying any peplum pieces until I purchased this dress from Dorothy Perkins a couple of weeks ago. I finally got a chance to wear it this weekend and immediately feel in love with the shape on my figure (and I forgot to take pics -_-). I love how the peplum detailing on skirts/dresses hides distracts creates this nice, clean, modest aura that is still flirtatious and fun.

Anyway, I want to get 1-2 more peplum pieces for my wardrobe. I want classic statement piece that could bring about longevity. Pieces like a nice neutral colored jacket and a bold skirt. Because one of my goals is to better support independent businesses, I've been searching on Etsy to find some good pieces. I recently ran across the Kait Bias Cut Peplum Skirt from De-Mes'Tiks and think I've found love.

Aren't they divine?! I really love ethnic prints, high waist garb, and peplum detailing so these two items were no brainers when I ran across them. I've always wanted to own tailored authentic African print items but never new a seamstress or where to get the material. These skirts combine so much of what I love that it excites me. I'm not sure which one I love more but I can't wait for one of them to make their way into my closet.
