{ pleating }

Accordions are pretty lame but boy are they beautiful. Punch up your maxi skirts, dresses, shorts, even handbags with pleats. Here are some of my favorite pleated pieces. Nothing like pleated skirts to get you in the mood for the upcoming school year. Actually attending school isn't a requirement for back-to-school shopping, is it?
