A Sprinkle of Brillance w/ JD Williams

I was super excited when I was contacted by JD Williams to create a few looks from their Winter Collection. Who would give up this type of opportunity??
While perusing through their catalogs, i was instantly amazed at how beautiful all their pieces were. How did this retailer escape my radar for so long?
They were kind enough to send me 4 fabulous pieces.
So here's how I styled them.

Joanna Hope Foil Pleated Midi Skirt
I chose to pair this fun skirt with all black. Keeping everything else simple so that the skirt makes a statement. I did add a thin gold belt to the waist for added detail and the fur scarf for more texture. Lastly, i added so suede pumps for more sass.

Natalie Scooped Hobo & Joanna Hope Boucle Cape
With this look, I chose a skinny cigarette pant paired with a trapeze shirt and then layered with this fabulous textured cape. This caped jacket has to be my favorite piece. Then the bag adds a little spunk to the ensemble. The tassles on this bag are just super cute and trendy.

Joanna Hope Fur Trim Cape

This piece feels like you're wrapped in pure luxury and coziness. I absolutely am obsessed with it. I choose to dress it down with jeans and boots. This cape is so versatile. It can easily pair with a fall/winter dress as well as nice pants and a top.

JD Williams is an amazing UK based retailer. I'm finding all their pieces to be amazing. The quality is unmatched.

Exaggeration is Necessary...

I know I can't be the ONLY one that can never have too much Peplum. I think I have peplum tops in almost every color. I have it on dresses and in skirts. It just flatters my body so much.
In all my peplum pieces, I can't say that I have one like this particular top.
The cascading exaggerated side detailing just gives it such a luxurious and couture type feel
And like all peplum, it has the versatility to be dressed up or down (in my case I went for casual).
Not that it isn't uber fashionable on it's own but I had to add my little elements to make it mine. The belt gives it a edgy layer and the cat ears just brings this all together for me.
When I love something, I tend to get it in a multitude of colors. Luckily for me, it comes in a few.
