This pleated maxi skirt deserves all the praise in the world, because it’s literally perfect. It was super windy the day I shot this, so my skirt was flying around like crazy, and I felt like I should be on a music video shoot for Tay Swift’s “Into the Woods,” singing and weaving in and out of the white pines…haha! But really, this pleated maxi skirt is amazing. It was on sale for $27, so I figured if it’s not the best quality…not a huge deal! Except it’s AMAZING quality! And the color?! Are you kidding me?! I feel like I just got away with highway robbery! Pleated skirts are so difficult to find for me, because I’m insanely picky! They have to be flattering at the waist line, not too full, and MUST be fully lined. That’s the hardest requirement to find! I hate maxis that are sheer, but only lined to the knee! Like why?! Did you run out of material? So tacky…it’s probably one of my biggest pet peeves EVER in fashion! Another thing I love about this pleated maxi skirt is the length! I love wearing heels with maxi skirts, but they’re rarely long enough to make that happen. Being only 5’2″, I can only imagine the pain my tall sistas feel, because 99% of them won’t even touch the ground! Good news though, this one is basically 10 ft long, so you’re good! Haha! But really, I’m in 4.5″ heels and still need to get it hemmed! It’s crazy long! A lot of the reviews online say it runs really small, so I originally sized up to a medium and the pleated maxi skirt was falling off me! So, either I’m way smaller than I think, or the other reviewers were on something crazy while writing those reviews. I would just go with your normal size!
They also just added this pleated maxi skirt to their website, and I’m super tempted to snag it! It looks basically identical to this blush skirt…and I pretty much need this skirt in every color under the sun!
In other news, I’ve come down with something nasty! These past few days, I didn’t feel great, but I woke up this morning with a horribly sore throat, nasty cough, no air flow through my nose, and my voice is slowing but surely slipping away. Basically I feel like I’m dying…yay! Hopefully it passes quick, because I don’t have time to be sick right now!
