pleated stripes.

who doesn't have a wide-stripe pleated skirt like this by now?
me. until last week.
while i've always loved the look of these wide stripes, i wasn't sure i could pull off the pouf-y pleats...and i never came across one to try on. then, i spotted this one at Patty's Closet. the length seemed just right...not too short, not too long, and the material is a blend that won't wrinkle easily. to ease into these bold stripes, i stuck with a black top and added a touch of color with these burgundy boots from JustFab.

do you own a wide-stripe pleated skirt?
if so, how do you wear yours?

a better look at the JustFab 'Vita' boots.
love the gold trim on the heel.
attended a night of pampering in celebration of breast health awareness...food, shopping, games and prizes, mini massages, and skin consultations. some of the ladies even had mammograms.
and, yes, those are boob cupcakes, plus yummy salted chocolate chip cookies.

Super cool skirt. I have one in light gray stripes. Doesn't look as bold but I do like it.

The skirt, the heels, the tiny bell - I love them all! Especially the length of the skirt is amazing. It's incredible how hard it is to find a descent skirt :D

This looks so good on you. I wore a similar skirt last week but, of course, it pales next to yours.
