Perfect Pleats

There's a little bit of fashion hoopla surrounding the Whistles Carrie skirt, so much so that the hot pink pleated number has become the most blogged and tweeted about item of the moment (Is the PR girl for Whistles currently kicking back in Aruba, considering her career complete?) I think there's something about pleated skirts for summer. Not the rough, thick pleat skirts of gym class heyday, but instead, light fripperous pleats that flutter against bare legs in the breeze. I missed the boat on the Whistles skirt but found this one from Topshop sale instead, worn here Jil Sander style with a crisp white T shirt.

These truly are perfect pleats, and a perfect combination with the white tee. (If I had known that topshop sold this skirt...)

My obsession with blue might be (is) unhealthy. This outfit is perfect.

Nearly all of the things you point out happens to be astonishingly precise and it makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light before. This piece really did turn the light on for me as far as this particular topic goes. But there is one particular factor I am not necessarily too cozy with and while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual main theme of your issue, allow me observe just what the rest of the subscribers have to say,Very well done.

I LOVE this outfit. So pretty, even though the skirt is officially sold out, I would like to find these shoes, I've been searching for the perfect nude shoe that is not patent. Is there a link to purchase them? Thank you so much

How do you get that effect around your photos so that it looks like an old photograph?
