Yes to Pleated Shorts, If I Do Say So Myself!

10:20 AM

Admittedly, at first glance, pleated shorts were a definite no! They reminded me of the dreaded culottes I was forced to wear when I was younger. But there was something brewing creatively inside that day that led me to grab them from the rack and give them a try in the fitting room.  Offered in-store in two colors, hot pink & black, my reluctance led me to choose them in black.  To my suprise, they were absolutely adorable and the fit was perfect! 

Now, they are a bit short, and are not designed for the shy girl at heart, but they are darling and cute nonetheless and can be paired with a graphic tee for a more casual look, a body suit & wedge sandal for a resort feel, or a dolman flowing sophicated top and heel! I am slowly becoming the type of shopper that thinks of looks ahead when purchasing a garment.  I opted for a more flirty, glam look below, paired with a platform pump, piled high with accessories!
