This week was the week of the pleats, apparently. I’m glad they’re back in style – I like their feminine professional charm.
But first, these shoes. They’re Nine West, which as we’ve discussed, are just not good shoes for my feet. Plus, I got them from a discount shoe store, and I’m pretty sure they’re different sizes. But, a good navy pump is hard to find, so we carry on.
However, I liked the pleats and the midi-length of the dress, and it was free (another donation from my sister’s roommate), so I decided to get it altered. The result is below:
I don’t really love how I styled it (or whatever face I’m making in this picture). I think in the future, I’ll try a jacket (either denim or fitted blazer) and see if I like that better. If I get really crazy, I might try it with a chunky sweater and boots, but the more I think about, the more that seems like something that looks great in a fashion magazine, but ridiculous in execution.
Any suggestions? How would you style a midi pleated skirt?
