pleating the lighhter way

Pleated Its Way Back Into My Life.

 

The first time I rocked a pleated garment was at the age of five.  The fabric was a heavy cotton-polyester blend; the style, overalls; and the place, primary school in Trinidad and Tobago.  I rocked the pleats for about seven years straight after my first time, so my relationship with the folds wasn’t one that I have fond memories of.  Time heals all wounds, scars and my love hate history with extra fabric.  I’ve found some ways to help me bring pleats back into my life so the second time around, pleats can give me happy memories.

Spring Trends Me Likey: Put Some Peplum In Your Step.

Another A-Z  list for spring,  I A. B. C. Don’t think so.  Just had to stop myself this time around when I realized the search wasn’t as enjoyable as creating Fall’s A-Z.  It felt more like a task this time around, trying to find something for every letter of the alphabet, content, and styling suggestions. Couldn’t take the fun out of my fashion time, so I figured I’ll just start sharing the spring love and the first day of the season was the perfect time to start.
