Reminisce with me, will you? When the peplum trend hit, the following weeks afterward consisted of LOADS of bloggers donning either a blouse, skirt, or dress supporting the trend. So I held out on the peplum as long as I could since I'm a "walk to the beat of my own drum" sort. I avoided it. I ran from it. I hid from it. Till I received it as a gift from my mom. Then I became obligated to oblige because I wasn't gonna say no to my mom. However- Trend < Originality.
