Up Close

 Peplum top: H&M, Jacket: Tulle (similar), Faux leather pants: F21 (similar here or here), Heels: Enzo Angiolini via Crossroads, Accessories: BCBG necklace, Karen Walker sunglasses, (kno) Name Flektor watch (c/o), F21 and vintage rings, 3.1 Phillip Lim bag

I'm not much of a girly girl (and hopefully as a reader of my blog, you already knew that =) but I do love the feminine details that can be brought out in an outfit like this one. The peplum detail is obviously feminine but I love it combined with the edginess of faux leather pants, like I wore here. The combination is a slight one that is not noticed from afar but when you do see it, it's kind of awesome.






On another note, have you noticed my watch lately? I am such a watch nerd so when I connected with (kno) Name and their Flektor watch, I knew it would be good match. I'm head over heels over it and to be honest, I haven't received this much attention (from strangers) towards my watch in a while. The mirror effect and the (hidden) LED digital time reader is a fun combination of cool and edge for me. I was fortunate to get one and I loved it so much that I got my hubs one, too.
