Sexy Senoritas, the Peplum Trend, and the Justin Timberlake/ Jay Z Concert

photo 2-4

This past weekend I attended the Justin Timberlake and Jay Z concert at Yankee Stadium along with (pretty much) the rest of Manhattan.  So, as most of you already know, ‘shit was cray”.  Jay Z is a given, but I was skeptical of Mr. Timberlake.  Much to my surprise, I had forgotten about how many of his songs I have loved over the years.  Namely, the one that goes “Senorita, I feel for you.  You deal with things, that you don’t have to…” Justin Timberlake is basically a big nerd that would have probably been working at Microsoft if he wasn’t such a talented musician…  which makes him that much cooler.  Nerdy cool: Yes, yes, YES!

Which brings me to todays post, a Vintage Victor Costa Peplum Dress that is (you guessed it) up for sale on my eBay Store.

This Sassy Senorita Number features one of my favorite recent trends: Peplum.  Peplum gives you an hour glass silhouette, even if you don’t have one.  And if you DO have the curves, it just showcases them more.  Peplum = Awesome.

The jewelry is mostly vintage, except for the Forever 21 “Aztec” Gold Plate Necklace.  The fan is from a Chinese Market; it makes an amazing noise when you open it (like a real flamenco dancers’ fan does).  I embellished it with rhinestone encrusted roses for a Burning Man costume last year… check it out:

The hat is an amazing piece I bought for my Kentucky Derby Themed Birthday Party a few years back… you can see more pics of that party here:

The shoe is super versatile because of its deep red and purple hues; it can be worn with pinks, reds, and purples.  It is by Louis Vuitton (of course).
