The Point of It: Peplum and Camouflage


So sad the weekend is over and my week-long celebration of my birthday has come to an end.  This is what I wore to go out for some shopping and lunch with hubby last Thursday.  I was a bit worried about mixing the two trends of peplum and camo but I was so super comfortable I really didn't worry to much about it.
While the weather was great in the morning the clouds quickly rolled in and by mid-day we found ourselves "trapped" by the pouring rain at Sephora where we dulled our sense of smell by sniffing every perfume and cologne on display.  We spent an inordinate amount of time perusing the make-up isles and I can truly say that my make-up bag has not been so replenished in quite a while!  Thank you Rainy Day!
I do have to mention that it was very entertaining seeing everyone scurry about as the rain started and gained momentum.  A couple was struggling to cover their stroller with the baby in it, a lady ducked into Sephora just in time for her laptop to be saved from drowning, two girls were trying to protect their Louis Vuitton's under too short cardigans while running for shelter, and then there was the little old lady with blue/green hair that was slowly strolling towards her destination wearing boots, a parka and holding the cutest duck-print umbrella.

  30. Holy shet!! I don't think I've ever seen, or will ever see again (unless someone does a "Copy Cat files" on YOU), anyone rock peplum and camo like you just did!!! This is seriously a bravo clap moment. You look great, Dana. And you mix and think of the most creative outfits, like evarrr! Um..did I mention your hair looks freakin' FAB?! Is that real or extensions? I don't care either way, I'm just in awe of how long, beautiful and healthy it looks.
    P.s. I adored the story telling of all the people dashing out of the rain, especially the sweet older lady...with blue/green hair? What a bad ass older lady.
