comPLEATly happy

I'm a curvy girl. This I know- and I embrace my curves. One trend that I like, but have to be careful about, are pleats...they have a terrific ability of slimming the body, but if you're curvy at the hip, somehow those pleats don't looks quite as terrific when they are pulling slightly, rather than laying comPLEATly flat :)

So, a few items that I think could be lovely additions to the wardrobe (and are basic enough to outlast the trend!):

Jason Wu for Target's basic black pleated skirt

Then there's this hot little number from the Loft...
the color rocks, and the pleats fall slightly below the hip (perfect for me!)

And I am intrigued by this pleated top from Talbots.
While I don't favor the white, the blush pink one could be adorable with a black pencil skirt.

May the pleat be with you.
