I wanted the top to stand out, but if you know me, when it comes to accessorizing I have a hard time with the "more is less" concept. Surprisingly enough, I think the necklace and bag I chose paired perfectly. I really love this studded structured bag that OASAP sent me. It surely adds spice to any ensemble.

I'm still on a peplum high! I can't help myself. I love peplums. I made this top last year. When I found this green and black tapestry-esque fabric, I knew I wanted to make something with structure and voila this beautiful top sprung to life. The silhouette was actually inspired by a local landmark here on Maui, the Lahaina Jodo Mission. It mimics the architecture of the Pagoda temple. I even made matching pants to go with this top, which have hand quilted side panels, but I decided to forgo the silky pants and opted for a more casual Friday look; enter my favorite pair of denim jeans.
