Please tell me what u think, it would be really appreciated

    I’m a big fan of lots of colour, so I love the contrasting peplum. I think the soft lemon and royal purple work really well together.

    I love the back details. I think I would have done the peplum in the same color as the dress and used the contrasting purple for the back details. (This coming from a person who is pretty conservative and doesn’t take fashion risks – but I think you are on trend with this dress either way).

      Thanks. That is a go idea also but I wanted a dress in a single colors. The peplum is not attached so I can remove it and where the dress as it is.

    I think the upper part of the dress is too tight for such a “gifted” woman like you.

      Thanks,The upper part was a bit too close a mistake on my part, but I really wanted to see how it looked when it photographed.

    I love the idea of a contrasting peplum! I never would have thought of that. It looks great!

      Thanks…Constrasting colours of fabrics is a way to bring life to a garment. I love mixing colours
