Decadent Designs Peplum Blouse

I’m so excited to feature a new acquisition from Decadent Designs today! I received this puff-sleeve peplum blouse a few weeks ago and have been not-so-patiently waiting for illness to subside so Mr. Kitty and I could spend an evening out with this lovely top.

I am thoroughly impressed with the quality of this piece. The fabric is a very high-quality spandex blend. Its heavy weight gives it a classy elegance without looking bulky (and it is very cat hair resistant!). The peplum is so amazingly flattering, and the puffy shoulders make me feel like a true Gothy princess from my own, dark little fairy tale. πŸ˜‰

A blouse this fabulous calls for a fabulous necklace, and that neckline was simply begging for this beaded masterpiece. Yes, I wear it all the time, but I’m sure no one can blame me. A fishtail skirt was the finishing touch on the outfit.

I have one other creation from Decadent Designs that I will be featuring in a couple of weeks, and I have a feeling I will be buying more from her collection soon! While I don’t really make New Year’s resolutions, I do plan to re-focus my clothes shopping for the coming year. I find it so much more rewarding to save up for a few pieces of true quality than to impulsively buy a bunch of inexpensive items that I like, but don’t really feel “special” wearing.

  1. This outfit manages to combine two things I actually hate – peplums and puffball sleeves. Somehow, however, it looks excellent here. πŸ™‚

  2. You look like a dream!!! Super stunning!

  3. I love Decadent Designs! I have yet to purchase anything myself but I hope to some day πŸ™‚

  4. Oh, those sleeves. Yes, I know what you mean πŸ™‚ It’s a must be detail for a princess πŸ™‚ Looks very flattering on you πŸ˜‰ Although I would like a zipper to be black to…

    • I’m normally not a fan of the exposed zipper but in this case even the zipper is such high quality that I really love it. And she makes a matching pencil skirt that also has a silver zipper all the way up the back. The pair makes for a very striking rear view. πŸ˜‰ I plan to buy the skirt to go with this top soon!

  5. Oh my, you really do look like a Medieval Goth princess πŸ™‚ Fabulous πŸ™‚

  6. Love this outfit, you look absolutely stunning!

  7. You look so lovely honey! <3

  8. Investing in high-quality items is a very intelligent thing to do.
    This kind of piece last twice more and you always find yourself in a “positive mood” when you wear them, isnΒ΄t it?

  9. Wow! Wow! Wow! Gorgeous Miss Kitty! It looks as if the two pieces are a dress, amazing! I hope you and Mr. Kitty are feeling much better, this flu going around is ridiculous!

  10. Cat-hair resistant? This is a real thing? I’m skeptical.

    • I did say cat-hair “resistant”, not cat-hair “proof”. ;-D It did get quite covered in hair during my Prometheus Snuggle Session (see the photo I posted on Facebook). But under normal circumstances, this fabric collects very little hair and what does attach to it brushes off very easily. This makes my life very happy!

  11. LOVE you in this look! The jewelry and makeup are stunning and you look younger and fresher than ever in the closeup! Bravo!

    Thanks for sharing this wonderful dress shop with us! I enjoyed looking at every item! I would have bought some of the more scandalous pieces back in my 20’s (when I had the figure, I sure didn’t have the money!) – I want you to get this dress – – you would look better in it than the model on the website!

    • OMG I love that dress. But that one is definitely out of my price range, at least until Mr. Kitty wins the lottery! πŸ˜‰ You would look fabulous in some of her PVC pieces, if you like PVC…

    • Oh, the success of the closeups in this one is due largely to the fact that I actually readjusted my photo lights to a more flattering closeup configuration after I finished the full-length shots… Something I’m usually too lazy to do! ;D

  12. I LOVE those sleeves! It does look like lovely fabric, and it hangs beautifully!

    Although I do try to buy clothes based on the quality over quantity rule, I have been burned a couple of times. Like buying a nice sweater and having it pill within three wearings. That, and those damned pants from the fashion show. LOL

    • Ah, those pants! πŸ˜‰ Yes, that is an excellent reminder that the “quality” approach should probably not be paired with spontaneity. πŸ˜‰ I, too have had some bad experiences with quality pieces (a satin bustle skirt that totally ripped the first time I wore it, which I was fortunately able to fix and reinforce adequately…) but fortunately that’s the exception, rather than the rule!

  13. You look so elegant in this outfit! Cat hair resistant too – bonus. πŸ™‚

  14. You look amazing! I checked the website and I must say that their clothes seemes to all be designed for you. All of them are so feminine and elegant.

  15. Très élégant, ma chère dame.

  16. Awesome outfit!
    The peplum looks amazing with the fishtail, and those sleeves are to die for. This blouse really is stunning and the necklace – aside from being beautiful πŸ™‚ – really compliments it; while the clothes are pretty simple, but classy, the necklace is more fancy and it gives the whole outfit the final touch.

  17. What a gorgeous, gorgeous top! I particularly love the ruffled bottom over that fishtail skirt — it accents the flair at the bottom of the skirt. Very, very pretty. And I agree with Tante: cat hair resistant?

    • Thanks! πŸ™‚ As I told Tante, I did say cat-hair “resistant”, not cat-hair “proof”. ;-D It did get quite covered in hair during my Prometheus Snuggle Session (see the photo I posted on Facebook). But under normal circumstances, this fabric collects very little hair and what does attach to it brushes off very easily. <3

  18. That top is perfection on you. Can’t wait to see how it pairs with the pencil skirt if you get it!

  19. You look seriously amazing. The top is the bomb-dignity. For reals.

  20. Peplum tops have been quite popular over here lately, and I haven’t liked the shape until now. The top is lovely and you look stunning in it.

  21. *looks at website, passes out from sticker shock*

    I envy you that sort of budget! I still remember the last time I spend over $50 on a single item, and that was 3 years ago.

  22. You look stunning. I haven’t been on their website in a while; I think I will take a look now!
