Grey Sweater + Purple Pleat Skirt

The last time I wore this purple pleat skirt on the blog was about four years ago and you can see the previous blog post here. I love the pop of color that the skirt brings to an outfit and the skirt is one of my favorites because it was designed by me. I went to the fabric store and picked the pleated fabric myself and I got all the bold bright colors I could find. There was deep red which I also made into a pleat skirt and you can see it here in this post and there was also lime green color pleat fabric that I also made into another pleat skirt and I blogged about it here. And I still have teal and black color pleat fabric at home that I haven't made into any piece yet. I am still trying to decide what style to create with them. The pleats on this skirt fabric is the very tiny knife pleats and since the fabric is a little heavy and the pleats very tight, the skirt is not flowy; just exactly what I wanted when I decided to make this skirt; a heavy pleat maxi skirt appropriate to wear in the cold weather months. And when I say make, I never really made these skirts myself; I found a seamstress and told her exactly what I wanted; three maxi pleat skirts and she had them made for me.

My favorite bag trend

Ͳhe pouch bag which appeared on the fashion scene last fall has become my favorite trendy bag of all time despite the steep price tag. Yes, I do factor the price of fashion into my appreciation or likeness for it 😂 I have been seeing this bag in different colors and fabric on the gram and on Pinterest and they are not hard to miss. The simple, cloud like or dumpling shape design elevates any outfit whether casual or formal and I think it is a bag that also transcends the seasons which might make the price point worth it. I know that high end retail stores like Zara would come up with an inspired version soon. Check out all the different sizes, colors and prices here and here
