Sage Frill Waist Dress

I'm sure you're all aware of the beautiful clothing style that is the peplum! Peplums originated just after the second world war, in the mid 1940's (or so my Granny reassures me as I write this!) I've always been a fan, as I find them really flattering on my 'body shape' (cringe).
After Jason Wu recently ushered a collection of elegant peplum designs down the catwalk, they're inevitably going to become popular amongst the masses!
If you'd like to jump on the peplum bandwagon, but don't know how to go about it, this 'Ottoman' Dress by LOVE, with its frill waist detail, is a really wonderful alternative. Not only does it come in 5 colours (I want them all!) but it's actually surprisingly well made and inexpensive. As soon as I tried this dress on, I knew it would go perfectly with this lovely necklace from Ziba, and my bargain eBay sunglasses.
I think I've done that thing where you say a word so many times it looses its meaning and goes all weird... peplum peplum peplum.
