While I love the look of peplum's on dainty runway models and 1940's movie sirens, I was never quite sure if I liked them on me. This dress has enough of a peplum (one half to be exact) to give it a vintage feel, but not so much as to date it as 'trendy.' The ruching on the bodice combined with the floral print and silhouette just further enhances the retro look.
Dresses like this are pure gold, because you can dress them up or down, take them to the office or out on the town. Its like two dresses for the price of one!
