Pleated Persuasion

I fell hard for this mini pleated midi length skirt...


(Close up...the details get lost on black.) I normally stay away from the pleated persuasion because sometimes I think it adds inches in places where I don't want them, but this one from Bordeaux drapes quite nicely, I'm guessing because the crimping is much smaller.


Ok, so on me it's maybe a little closer to a maxi, but I can still show off a great shoe. It's a piece that I can dress up easily so really the challenge will be to dress it down, to be more wearable for day.  Which I attempted to do with this look, just going with a simple cotton v-neck top/tee, (that I have actually been debating about getting rid of,) and fun necklace from Debbie Carroll. I would love to find a great flat sandal to wear with it for summer...suggestions?

I love it, and those heels are cute! I usually peruse DSW if I'm in need of a sandal but not sure what.

I seriously LOVE this skirt {and entire outfit!} on you! I agree, pleating can look unflattering at times, but the detailing on this one is simple and subtle. :)

I just bought a ruched black skirt that fits pretty much the same way, and I wondered how to dress it down, as well! Love your platforms - but a cute and simple little flat t-strap would be great for everyday. Now that I've given that tidbit of advice...I'm in need of a pair myself!

Indeed, so often pleated skirts make one look a bit fuller but this black skirt of yours sits perfectly on you and doesn't add inches to your slim figure. The shoes are great and suit this outfit nicely.
