Alice and Olivia Peplum Dress …or Top

April 11, 2012

Dress worn as top:Alice & Olivia, Skirt:J-Crew, Necklace:Ann Taylor
Shoes:Aldo, Watch:Michael Kors, Ring:Kimberly Baker
Sunglasses:Prada, Bag:Alexander Wang “Rocco”

It’s really hard to wear a dress in many different ways, that’s why I prefer to invest in tops, skirts and pants. This Alice & Olivia peplum dress is one of those exceptions though, I can wear it as is or with a different skirt under the peplum. I just love this combination of navy and pink together.

wow the top is a dress, i would never said. great colors. love the ring.

i literally just talked about loving skirts and pants b/c of the ability to mix and match in a feature post. great minds think alike :) i do like the ease of just throwing on a dress though…

The top is total COOL…super pretty my dear. Great OUTFIT everyday….delicious

Gorgeous!Love the dress worn as top!

So clever – I never would have thought to try this, but it really does just look like a top! Great mix of colors & textures here :)

I love your heels!! I love the contrast of colors!!!

This look is so fabulous! Love the color block and the peplum!

Lovely Patience!


Good idea. This looks great with the mix of colors.


It really is a great combination! LOVE that lace skirt. Really need to get mine fixed since I kinda walked to fast in it and it being a tad too tight, slit right up the seam. Soooo embarrassing by the way hehehe. I must say, you do peplum, very well :)


Amazing layering! I also love navy and pink together!

that’s truly a great dress Patience.

I love the colour and print in this look. I’m a huge peplum fan. I think I wear more tops than dresses, but I definitely have my dress days. Good choice! :)

You literally rock this!!! I adore that dress… the colors and shape is amazing on you! You go girl


This is such a cute combination!! Love the pink, peplum, and leopard! And still crushing on that necklace!

So girly and fun, loving peplum on you!

I so adore your peplum looks and it always reminds me that I need to try making one of my own in hopes I can (in a tiny way) look as good as you :)

You know what I love the most about this look? The little touches… How the nail polish matches the peplum part of the dress… And I adore the shoes – you do have a fab collection of footwear! x

I love your skirt and sunglasses! they’re both pretty fabulous!

p, love the color-blocking you have going on here. i absolutely love the fem details… and you look GORGEOUS! love, love your style. you’re so elegant, yet sooo stylish. hope you have a great day, p!


I love the outstanding clear pictures of your photos and second it takes a creative mind to wear this dress as a top the way you wore it. You nailed it
