Pretty Peplum's

I never thought I would see the day; the resurrection of the peplum. I remember them from the 80's and I now see them on the runways! Once again, the Fashion industry is based on the recycling and re-working of ideas from days gone by. To me, this is why Vintage clothing is SO CHIC! and at Evolution Vintage why I can Re-Style Fashion's past current. The origin of the peplum was not in the 80's but all the way pack to the 1920's when it rocked frocks in a different forms.
