Vintage Peplum

The peplum, a term dating back to the 19th century, is a short overskirt that is usually attached to a fitted jacket.

In the 19th century the peplum was usually not attached to a jacket, but was merely an extra overskirt flounce sewn onto, and dropping from the waist. The modern peplum, as we now know it, became popular as a design in women’s suiting in the 1940s. This decade a couple of different styles of peplum emerged and was seen.

The peplum fashion faded in the 1950s but came back with a vengeance in the late 1980s and early 1990s.

In the 2000s the peplum was reinvented. Instead of being a long overskirt, the peplum became much more understated, usually only covering to mid stomach

As befits the second decade of the new millennium, the peplum is seen in many styles, lengths, colors and shapes. We see peplum in a jacket, shirt, skirt and even in a dress. The peplum comes in all lengths and all the volumes, now all that remains is to choose your peplum style.

פאפלום- מונח מהמאה ה -19, הפאפלום הוא תוספת קצרה מעל החצאית, בעבר הוא היה חלק מז’קט תואם לחצאית.

במאה ה-19 הפאפלום היה תפור מעל החצאית ומשחורר מהמותניים. הפאפלום המודרני, כפי שאנו מכירים אותו היום, הפך לעיצוב פופולארי בחליפות נשים בשנות ה-40, בתקופה זו הפאפלום כבר נראה בכמה סגנונות שונים. טרנד הפאפלום נעלם קליל בשנות ה-50, אך חזר ביתר שאת בשנות ה-80 המאוחרות ושנות ה-90 המוקדמות.

בשנות ה-2000 הפאפלום הומצא מחדש, במקום להיות תופסת ארוכה לחצאית, הפאפלום הפך להרבה יותר מאופק ולרוב מכסה עד אמצע הבטן

כיום, כיאה לעשור השני של שנות האלפיים, הפאפלום בא לידי ביטוי בהמון סגנונות, אורכים, צבעים וצורות. אנו רואים פאפלום כחלק מז’קט, חולצה, חצאית ואפילו על שמלות. הפאפלום מגיע בכל האורכים ובכל הנפחים, רק נשאר לבחור את הסגנון שלך.

The yellow polka dots  peplum shirt I’m wearing here is vintage made by my mom, when she was 16 she studied fashion design and textile engineering- this shirt was one of her early works- when I turned 16 my mom passed this shirt to me! Tnx mom!!!

החולצת פאפלום המנוקדת שאני לובשת היא וינטג’ משנות ה-80, כאשר אימא שי הייתה בת 16 היא תפרה את החולצה במסגרת לימודי עיצוב אופנה והנדסת טקסטיל- כשמלאו לי 16 אביבים אימא העבירה לי את החולצה! תודה אימא!!!

Summer dress/ Winter time

This morning I got inspired by a the black-and-white flowers pattern on a an amazing summer dress that my daddy got me in a small boutique in Canada (no, he wasn’t on a vacation- it’s time to mention my family lives in Canada while I’m here in a small, amazing country called Israel).

Then black- and white it is…I took out my lather high heels sandals (for those who don’t know Israel is a warm country- even in the winter) and started to match some jewelry to the outfit, when my sweet boyfriend (also time to mention I have one of those for the last 6 and half years) announced-it’s going to be a freezing day with some moments of rain according to my smartphone (thank god for inventing smartphones)!

Well it is the middle of the winter, what on earth did I expect, a sunny warm day???- hem hem (some throat clearing)..…YES, I DID!!!

[To be honest they did mentioned something about snow up north and winds here in TLV (also known as Tel Aviv)-] that is a bummer!!!!

Through the window I could see the poor trees swaying from side to side (very violently) because of the strong, upsetting wind=> all my plans to the black-and-white inspiration outfit were gone (along with my smile).

BUT (and this one is a big but) some clouds and wind won’t prevent this need of mine to wear that particular dress!!!

So I got my white long sleeve body suite, black tights (someone once told me the right word is pantyhose…ammm interesting I just thought there are both right only preannounced differently in the States and UK) and a black handmade scarf mom got me!

And VOILA:  I managed to wear summer items in a wintery cold day.

It’s all about doing the right matching and you can wear that summer dress or shoes you like so much even in the winter!!!

Here are two suggestion to wear the same summer dress in different looks:

Here you can see the finished product- tell me what do you think?..
