Peplum Gown

I've posted a lot about peplum. But still, not enough because I love peplum so much. I hope you adore peplum as much as I do. Once again, here's the definition of peplum:

peplum |ˈpepləm|


a short flared, gathered, or pleated strip of fabric attached at the waist of a woman's jacket, dress, or blouse to create a hanging frill or flounce.
• (in ancient Greece) a woman's loose outer tunic or shawl. [ORIGIN: via Latinfrom Greek peplos.]
I've never realized that peplum gown is so beautiful until I saw a local designer made one with tea rose color. I've do some research and here's what I got. (Click "open image in new tab" for zoom size ;) )

Marchesa Couture Beaded Corset-Top Peplum Gown

Marchesa Notte Silk Crepe Strapless Dress. The other version of Couture Marchesa's peplum gown. Available in Pink and White. Personally, I think it's amazing how Marchesa can change the beads into lace but both still have amazing look in different way.

Here's not a designer dress but I love the idea of making a mullet and peplum dress. I'm so in love with the color too! I think it's a great combination even it's not a designer's and it's also worth for only $65!

I adore this long sleeve lace tulle peplum wedding gown by Zuhair Murad for Rosa Clara. First, it's high collar neck (or mock neck). Second, look at the back buttons. Third, combining tulle, laces and peplum. Then, I have no idea where's the unlovely side of this wedding gown. Is anyone planning to wear this on her wedding day? I'd really love to make a post about this exquisite dress!
