Peplum made a come back sometime around 2011-2012 and I have not seen anyone in a peplum top for quite a long time. 
The fact that it's not one of the current "hot" trends does not mean I am to vanish it from my closet. I can layer it, I can tuck it in, belt it.. there are so many possibilities ! 
The fact that I have not seen someone wearing peplum in a while was just the perfect reason for me to wear my one and only peplum garment today, because the odds of finding someone else wearing the same outfit are close to none. Are there any peplum garments in your wardrobe ?

Wearing my tweed blazer today, thought I might use the term "tweeding" a in "wearing tweed". Luckily there is Google and I searched before posting and learned that tweeding actually means "private gain and public expense" (full definition here). There's none of that here.

These Spanish made shoes have been around for a long while. They're of supple black leather and a dream to wear, so it was a no brainer to sport them for a meeting. Funny thing is I don't wear them much as they seem very conservative, even for my own conventional style. 
Then I read somewhere that old lady shoes were back, or notYou know, the shoes that you just don't like and then begin to see everywhere and you begin to accept. Now, without even noticing, I have been gravitating towards these styles, for example these brown amaretto square toe beauties or these lavender mules.  I might ask to be buried in these

What's your take on these old lady shoe styles ? Yay or nay ?
