Peplum and Mint



Hey guys, I guess by now its public knowledge that Kim K and Kanye West are now a hot item.  Not fair Kim, I've always had eyes for Mr. West, I mean you're gorgeous and you can get almost any man you want so why Kanye?  It's either they're canoodling while strolling down the streets of NYC sharing an ice cream cone or wearing matching colours to restaurant openings. She even has earrings with letters 'K' 'W' sef! So what if I'm jealous? So they're now 'K-WEST' or 'KIMYE?








Anyway I stumbled into this picture of them leaving the opening of a restaurant wearing matching colours (now they're doing co-ordinated outfits? wtf). I managed to put my jealousy aside when I looked closely at Kim K's dress. She was wearing a black jersey peplum dress from Givenchy, Louboutin Unbout illusion pumps (these red-bottom beauties are showing up everywhere aren't they? Beyonce, Rihanna and Solange have been snapped in them. Solange wore hers with that split-to-almost-the-waist Maki Oh skirt that got every blog talking)







 Not surprising, as with the Alti spiked pigalle, these Loubies are sold out! 











I liked the look. With her hair pulled back in a tight bun and minimal jewellery and a black clutch, Ms. Kardashian looked simple but elegant. If I was her stylist I would have suggested a pop of colour somewhere though Kim seems to favour neutral colours (mostly black and greys).  Below is a a close-up on the Givenchy viscose jersey dress










I have always been a fan of the peplum even before it became one of this season's top trends.  I'm definitely getting myself a peplum outfit asap. inspired by this season's hot mint and pastel colours, I went to polyvore to pull an outfit together. Below is my creation! I was thinking French glamour (Don't know why I put Big Ben in the background...)...Mint green peplum dress, pearls, YSL ooh-la-la red lipstick, Dior miss cherie perfume and my fave Louboutin Alti Spike 160mm shoes and an edgy knuckle-duster black clutch........

  2. First the rumours about 'K-WEST' or 'KIMYE' got our ears itching for more x-rated info, with doubts lurking around. Now, all I can say is "for sure they were all true"...yeah *eye* me if you want, that's what happens when speculations turn out true. I think they look cute together and can only hope they do find calm nerves with each other...*wink wink*.

    You write beautifully Bex, you should see the wide smiles on me face. You should have "like" buttons around where you make your funny descriptions of how you feel, sure you'll get many of 'em likes.

    1. I reluctantly agree with you. They do look good together. Do I see the beginnings of the making of a power couple? Should Bey and Jay-Z feel threatened? Hmmmmmmm.
