BlogHer Sponsor Love: Kristine Cook Designs

One of the biggest trends this spring and summer is peplum, and Kristine Cook Designs is taking it up a notch with jackets and cocktail jackets!

I am absolutely overjoyed to unveil the design for my BlogHer cocktail dress....

original design by Kristine Cook Designs
It's a fabulous geometric pattern of taupe and black, with solid black illusion panels on the sides and the peplum detailing.

Peplum.

I was unfamiliar with the trend and term until I met Kristine, and I have to say that she has completely changed my outlook on it. I thought that it would be a trend that would make a curvy girl more curvy...but au contraire! It emphasizes a tiny waist {especially with the black out panels on the sides} and gives a funky edge to the design. I have the hourglass, so why not flaunt it?

The peplum doesn't stop at dresses, oh no...Kristine has taken the trend into her amazing structured jackets like the one seen above. How amazing is that!? Dress it down with a pair of jeans for the daytime, or with a fantastic pencil skirt for an evening out...all the while flaunting the shape that you were blessed with!

Thankfully, Kristine knows just how to implement these design techniques and flatter my body...a body that has changed a whole lot since having a baby and finding curves I never knew I had. She is one incredible designer who knows how to make you feel not just good in your own skin, but absolutely ravishing!
