this may be it

pleated skirts; i have a love hate relationship with them. i’ve discussed it before and i can’t seem to let it got. i love the way they look on the models and all the fashion magazine but it also takes me back to that awkward stage in life i.e. preteen years when my mom thought they would look good on me. God love her but ick.

oh i cringe

oh i cringe

but the pleated skirt still keeps popping up in all the magazines. i’ve been so tempted to try on one but then the flashbacks happen and i just can’t do it. but and when i saw this pleated skirt at tibi, i thought this may be one to try. it is not a complete pleat and i feel like it could hide some flaws so i wouldn’t feel so self conscious.

how to wear it. first, k.i.s.s (keep it simple stupid). i try to complicate things sometimes but with this skirt, i’m going to wear a simple top and when the weather turns cooler, i’m going to add a sleek blazer. but the lesson that i’ve learned, i’ve talked about pleats twice it’s about time i go give it a whirl and put my money where my mouth is.
