Nine West x Pose Style Challenge Wk 4 (Black Peplum Dress)

In this week’s Nine West x Pose challenge I’m getting back to a style I know well.  This black dress is from Zara, a lovely fitted shape with a broken peplum ruffle around the waistline.  There is something undeniably flirty about this kind of design – great for all shapes, the peplum frill will cinch in your waist and produce some ladylike flair in a matter of seconds.

The MsFabulous caged sandals are this week accompanied with a little metallic; a gold bag and bracelet along with some vibrant red nails.  Black, blood red, shiny gold and roccia-inspired print makes week four.  My pictures are up on the Nine West page of Pose if you want to vote by ‘loving’ the style – this action automatically enters you into a competition to win a pair of these sandals.

Wearing: Dress from Zara; heels from Nine West; Bracelet, JewelMint.  Bag, gift from a friend.  Thank you to Anne for treating me to the red nails at TenOverTen in NYC.

I’m in Austin until Sunday so this Friday’s lingerie feature will be a guest post by a friend of mine who I consider somewhat of an expert in gorgeous underthings.  She has a real treat for you this week!

    Actually, I figured it out, I am used to google blog, it just looks different, I SIGNED IN TO YOUR posts, look forward to new ones, you are an example on how women have to look. Very classy!

    I really love the outfits you’ve been coming up with for the Pose challenge – and I have a particular affinity for this one because I have the skirt version of this dress from Zara and it’s my absolute favourite piece in my wardrobe right now. In fact, I’m wearing it as I type this! Of course, I don’t suppose there was ever really much doubt that we have many of the same predilictions where clothing is concerned 🙂 I just have to say, also, that Lydia does such an incredible job of photographing you. If my visit to NYC ever happens (more on that via email), I would have to make a shoot with her part of my itinerary!
    xox,
    Cee

    • I also saw the skirt version -very pretty. As you know I’m a dress girl but I agree, I can understand completely why we are both attracted to this feminine number. Thank you for your email, Cee x

    i tried doing dDIY peplum here http://citystylecountrysmile.wordpress.com/2012/06/19/diy-peplum-belt/
    but it didn’t turn out quite like you!

    • Well I do get some terrific help from Lydia who photographs me for the blog. Let’s check out this DIY, I might save myself a little cash in the process – thanks for letting me know you wrote about this!

    So very modern and sleek yet it carries in it the glamour of the 1940’s. The smart chic look of a Hepburn or a Crawford. Really quite lovely.

  13. Josie says:

    You look gorgeous, I love this dress so much and the pale pink version was just as lovely xxx

  14. richlpgirl says:

  15. Sarah, you look absolutely beautiful in that Zara dress and I really like how you accessorised the minimalist look with animal prit and gold touches, simply perfect. I’ve never been a huge fan of peplum, but looking at your pictures, I think I’m changing my mind…I wish you a great time and lot of sunshine in Austin!

    • Caterina – I had a couple of dresses with a peplum frill from Reiss a few years back. I’ve worn them consistently since so that was the drive towards buying this newer version. It’s a great LBD for a night out x

  16. lestyliste says:

    omg I totally love your outfit!

  17. This is amazing! The LBD never fails, does it 😉 Peplum helps keeping it modern too!
    Love how you are glowing in the pictures! I am happy to see yet another good hair day photostory *wink wink*

    Also, can’t wait for what your friend cooks up to the lingerie feature. Exciting times!

    I love this dress on you! You look amazing, per always. I really like those heels. I love the femininity of the peplum dress but the heels give the look a bit of edge.

  24. Wait a minute, let me see if I can wrangle up my feelings on this ensemble…

    You have an absolute gift when it comes to color and choosing the best palette for yourself. This is a stunner. I would be willing to get myself into a whole mess of trouble if I stumbled upon you galavanting through the West Village.

    Bravo, Daisy! BRAVO!!
