The Urban Outfitters peplum jacket has gotten a lot of press lately from the petite blogging community lately.

Everyone styled the blazer to match their personalities and I enjoyed looking at all the different outfits.
Whenever I come across a clothing item, I try to think of three outfits before purchasing it to make it worth my money. Aside from the casual look, I wanted to glam it up for the office.
Taking some cues from the latest Fall’s trends, I created a look that’s fun but work-appropriate. Recalling the 50’s full skirt look, I pulled out this ochre colored skirt from J.Crew. The peplum blazer and skirt exaggerates the “smallness” of the waist creating a nice hourglass shape. In the photos, I love the side silhouette best!
This is my second outfit with this blazer.
Outfit Details: Urban Outfitters knit peplum jacket – XS, Topshop lace peplum tunic – 0P, J.Crew skirt – 00, Urban Outfitters belt, Express braided headband, random amber necklace, Aldo pumps
So the Via Military Coat (size XS) from Victoria Secret came by the other day. I was excited to see how the coat would fit on me. It had all the conditions I wanted in a coat: mid-thigh length, a bit of an A-line flare towards the bottom, slim sleeves, and a great color.
When I tried it on…
Looking for a great winter coat…in a color other than black, navy, or gray.
Every year, they always come out with some wonderfully colorful coats, but I never really found one I liked or that fit. The perfect coat should have smaller details like cuffs and collars to go with my smaller stature. I’m really drawn to double breasted styles, but it’d be perfect if it wasn’t. Also, the length should hit mid-thigh because if it was any longer, I’d have to wear it with heels all the time.
This time, I found a coat that I liked and it’s the one Nicole Richie wore. If it was only less than $200 I would’ve bought it by now.
I scoured a bunch of places and few had the styles or the colors I was looking for. It doesn’t have to red…but lately, I’m drawn more towards that color. It just makes the entire winter outfit look more cheery.
LA certainly has crazy weather patterns. It was totally windy yesterday and knocked out my power for 5 hours! Anyways, I haven’t been doing well without my camera so I’m resorting to my camera phone. It doesn’t take the best pictures, but it works.
I got this great velvet Ecolé blazer in OP from J.Crew a while back and I hardly ever wear it. I know J.Crew updated the Ecolé jacket into the Eden jacket.
Today, I’m busting out this jacket to showcase a couple of ways to wear it. After all, a great jacket deserves multiple outfits of praise.
