i’ve been electri-pleated!

one of the perks of rummaging through thrift or vintage shops is finding a good number of good quality pleated skirts and dresses and every time i score one, i immediately sift through the folds and am just amazed at how it flows. i’ve been lucky enough to score 3 electric pleated skirts in the last 3 weeks on our recent thrifting trips and i can’t wait to wear all of them. meet the first one: a black double-layered electric pleated skirt. and i can’t help swaying with it when i walk.

printed tee – thrifted
black pleated skirt – thrifted
black wedge sandals – parisian, sm dept store
stacks of bangles – carbon finds
rings – carbon finds
faux snake skin belt – pratunam, bangkok

    I want to get a pleated skirt. I dont normally wear skirts, since I hate not being able to through my legs everywhere but I just want a pleated one. I love how to wore your one high-waisted, it looks awesome:D

    And to answer your question I'm (sadly) still in High School. It sucks, especially because I either have Maths first tomorrow or an ESSA Science Test. . .

  21. i know this is my first time making a comment on your blog and this is not even about this post.i just thought that you might not be able to see it.

    anyway, this is about your “oops i thought this was dress”. your situation is just very familiar. i also went to catholic schools most of my life–and i definitely understand your sich. also, i use(steal)my mom's blouses as dresses. haha

    p.s. i really like visiting your blog
