To Pleat or Not to Pleat…

I have been seriously neglecting this blog.  I am still committed but my sister’s wedding was a major distraction.  However, I am back and will try my very best to stay disciplined.

This fall has been a return to the classics and I am so happy.  I admit I am boring and love the classic cuts.  By no means is it easy because many classic cuts require a ultra slim figure that can only be maintained via a diet of water and lettuce.

One of my current favorite trend is the pleated skirt.  A few weeks back while procrastinating and avoiding writing my maid of honor speech, I found myself at Goodwill with a few pleated skirts in my hand.  I could not wait for the Fall season to start so I can wear them.  My only fear is looking like a young school girl but I’ll have to work harder at accessorizing like a woman.

Everyone is carrying the pleated skirt this season.  You can find it at Club Monaco or if you have more money, you can get the Proenza Schouler version here

I got mine at Goodwill for $5.99 and paid $6.99 to dry clean.
