Prints, pleats, prints,pleants…I mean plints, oops I mean prints. Prints and pleats. Sounds like a tongue twister. Where my central Kenya people at? 😀

Pleats will forever hold a special place in my heart. They instantly add an elegant feel to a piece. Wanna feel like a princess? Pleats. Relationship problems? Pleats. No money in your bank account? Pleats. Haha. You know I’m just joking right? Box pleats, inverted pleats, stitched box pleats,knife pleats…Give me all of them pleats!

They’re like the champagne of the fashion world. Timeless, classic,good taste. I wanted to throw in some few things for juxtaposition; by styling this gorgeous grey pleated skater with ankle boots and an ankara fabric bandeau. You may have seen me wear this same ankara fabric as a peplum top here. The skirt was made by Kenyan designer, Grace. Her Instagram page is @urstruly_grace.
