Well, there’s nothing quite like shopping your own wardrobe is there. I bought this dress about 2-3 years ago and blogged about it at the time and then didn’t wear it again. Not even once.
Terrible I know. I look back and cringe at how much I would buy clothes and then proceed to hardly wear them. Granted I don’t go very far to wear pretty pleated dresses, but this particular item is actually super versatile!
This past weekend was my Best friends sons christening, and i needed a dress or something to wear. My capsule didn’t really have anything church/christening appropriate, because as most of you know, I spend most of my days pretty casual. I looked in the shops and saw lots of pretty christmasy outfits (there is literally sequins and sparkle everywhere right now!) But really i knew i could do with saving my money and putting it towards Christmas presents for my kiddos.
So I went looking in my storage and found this purple pleated pretty number.
Now taking in to consideration I bought this, say 3 years ago, but its fair to say that it is still bang on trend. Pleats are huge right now, you just have to look in your fashion magazines or you local high street and see that they are still very much having a moment.
I was actually looking for a pleated skirt as I really like the trend, but didn’t buy anything because I’m still in my Autumn Capsule, but was thinking of adding something for my winter capsule.
Well it turns out I already have something that fits the bill and is also super versatile.
I will be including it in my Winter capsule (which starts Dec 1st) and I’m looking forward to layering it under a big chunky knit and with some knee high boots too!
Are you in love with the pleated trend this season?
