I was thrilled when Otte (one of my favorite boutiques in NYC) asked me to collaborate on a little DIY. We decided to spruce up one of their classic T Tops, embellishing it for holiday. The peplum trend is so hot right now so I thought… why not make a feather peplum!? One of the best things about this project is that peplums can be hard to wear if the peplum doesn’t hit you properly. I personally have a long torso so tend to look silly in peplum tops as the peplum hits too high on me. When you make your own, you get to decide where the peplum goes… ensuring that you get the most flattering results possible.
P.S. Otte is giving all S&S readers a little discount when you purchase the ballet pink T Top! Just use code SS25. Ends 12/31/12
Materials/Where to Buy: Otte T Top // Approx 3.5 yards ostrich feather trim // Jewel It Glue
Embellishment (huge selection here) // Needle & Thread
Voila… you are done! (Pretty easy, no?)

I am in the market for a new watch and my eyes always stop at yours. Can you please let me know the details about it?
Hi Maneet, Thank you so much. Mine is a Rolex.. sorry, know that’s expensive! I think Michael Kors has a similar version.
It is supposed to be Birthday gift, and I was looking at Longines and Tag Heuer. I will take a look at Rolex too! Thanks for your reply! 🙂
Hi Grace, the link to the embellishment selection doesn’t seems to be matched up. Would you mind redirecting it? This project is stunning and I look forward to recreating this over the holidays!
Oh my goodness, so sorry about that! I just adjusted the post.
Thank you for editing so quickly! Your recommendations are too lovely!
Sooo unique, ive never seen something like this before!
