I got this aztec peplum top at a local boutique - Fancy Nancy's. I thought it was so cute and I loved the colors. It was on the sale rack for about $18. Sometimes, I think people stay away from boutiques because they don't feel they are getting their money's worth because all of the big box retailers offer coupons, sales, etc.... But don't count them out! Number 1, you are going to get some unique pieces that you won't see everyone else walking around in. Number 2, they have sales as well and you can find some great deals! Number 3, you are supporting a local business rather than a corporation.
I am wearing a peacock feather pendant that I made a long time ago when I first started beading. It is a peyote stitch with tons of beaded "fringe". The pixilated design the beads make almost mirror those on the top!
I have worn this top with skinny jeans, following my rule of big + little (a peplum ruffle can be hard on a gal like me who already has ample hips). But, wearing it with my flare jeans here seems to be better. Flared top and flared jeans..... who knew?
