Pleats

So I'm having a love affair with small pleats currently.  It's like my eye is immediately drawn to them when I've been shopping lately.  What's crazy is I have a black skirt with small pleats and I haven't worn it in years.  So I'm putting it out there, this week I'm wearing my fancy black pleated skirt.  I think to pull it off in a daytime, Mom setting, I'll pair it with a classic white t shirt, hip tennis shoes and a statement necklace.  What I love most about pleats is how feminine they are, yet done in a certain manor can be sexy at the same time.  And if you know me, every now and then I'll try and up the sex appeal in an understated manner. 

So sit back because I have a LOT of fashion and design coming your way.

DESIGN

Pleats are no different in interior design than fashion.  They come in all sizes and can be used in many places in your home.  

 Isn't this whole room perfection?  If you want the BEST grasscloth you go to  Phillip Jeffries .  Pea green and purple is always such a great color combo.  And it's great for men and women alike
