Window Shopping

I love peplum, I love houndstooth, I love sales. Put them together and it’s love at first sight!

While window shopping recently, I spotted this cute houndstooth peplum top in the window display of Ricki’s, walked right in, tried it on, bought it, did a quick photo shoot with the mannequin and wore it home!

houndstooth peplum 1houndstooth peplum 2I have loved this pattern ever since my mom bought me a houndstooth coat when I was a teenager and my aunt bought houndstooth skirts for my cousin Marion and me. Houndstooth has always been popular and never goes out of style. It originated in the Scotland Lowlands.

Looks like I’m part of the display, this is fun!

But this time the decision was easy as apple pie!

Have you ever bought something and wore it home right away?

    Sales are a real temptation, and I often ask me the same questions!! Your top is very nice and the pattern is limeless! You are a perfect model in the shop window!!!

    Oh my I LOVE this top! I want it LOL. You look fabulous. Better than the mannequins. You will be able to wear it with everything. I think a trip to Ricki’s might be in my future.

      Thanks Suzanne! Hmmm? Funny, three people think I look better than the mannequins – I sure hope so, and I’m smarter too, I have a head on my shoulders!! 😀

      Ricki’s still have them, in fact this one is still in the window and it could be your size!

    This peplum is gorgeous, I like the design and I like the houndstooth fabric. It is perfect with your black pants and your boots, you look very elegant. The detail to immerse yourself on showcase is very funny and nice, and it is clear that the mannequins do not have a nice body … yours is beautiful.

      🙂 Thank you Josep-Maria! I wanted this to be a fun post with a little humour so I decided to stand with the mannequins. So nice to hear that I have a nicer body than the mannequins! lol
