Me and this Peplum Belt of Mine

So, I love supporting folks, especially fellow plus size bloggers who boldly step out and experiment with their gifts! Such is the case with Deena from Fat Girls Like Nice Clothes Too.  A while back, she reached out to me to share her little endeavor on making peplum belts.

Now, if you have been reading my blog, I have a sweet spot for the peplum trend. Love. Not only do I love peplum accents, I have longed for more fashion with plus size belts! So, when Deena reached out to share her process and experiment, I was only naturally geeked about it! And guess what?

She made me one!

She offered me a choice of three fabrics: black satin, tartan and hot pink metallic. She found cooler black lace fabric and the belt was shipped my way.

I am really happy for this belt and I am already thinking of new color ways (COULD YOU IMAGINE A LEATHER VERSION?) I could! But I wanted to share and show you and then tell you to head over to Deena’s site to take a peek at her process! I am sooo excited for her and this project! Give her a shoutout over on Twitter at @fatgirlclothes!

How much would you pay for this belt? How would you rock this belt? WOULD you even rock one like this? Let me know!


Thank you sooo much Deena for this fabulous gift and I think you are onto something amazing here!

    A peplum belt is an amazing idea! It’s a great way to capitalize on the trend with clothes you already own!

    I *love* that concept! One of my biggest issue with a lot of peplum dresses and tops is that they are sleeveless . . . with this, I could pair it with any long sleeved dress and be done! Shoot, I have an ASOS Bodycon dress that is just crying out for something like that!!! Will check out Deena’s site!

    I wish the peplum extended completely around, but it’s really cute, and I like the idea of adding a little peplum flair to whatever outfit you choose. You look great!

    I really luv that idea for the peplum belt. The problem I have with peplums are my boobs are too big and the ruffle part of the peplum and my boobs meet in the center. lol

    Wow, I’m so in love with this belt.  It reminds me of my two favoritte peplum dresses (that my Mom made) I rocked in the 80’s.  I would still rock this.  It’s all about style, and creativity.  I love the look you showed.  I would also rock it with some black leggings worn with a black fitted scoop neck shirt.  You could also rock it with a pencil skirt, nice blouse with the belt. The leather idea is great.  This belt is a must for my collection of accessories! :) Great job Deena

    For what it’s worth that peplum belt might look okay the other way around .. giving little gathers on the sides and back.  I mean, the belt itself isn’t that crass.  I think it’d work.
