#OOTD: Pleats To Meet You (Feat. StyleWe)

This past week I have been extremely busy due having the flu and missing a week of work, and not to mention having to get caught up on my articles here. Recently, all my life has consisted of is answering emails, going to meetings, and of course running errands--which is honestly a total drag when the weather is cold and grey. So, this weekend I decided to beat the winter blahs, and dress up while running more errands yesterday, and to be honest it really did the trick! Even though I was a bit cold for this outfit of the day shoot (trust me, when I wasn't in front of the camera I most definitely had on my long fur coat), it was totally worth it due to the fact I got to model this absolutely darling dress from my sponsor and affiliate, StyleWe.

Pleated Perfection

The reason I chose this dress to run my Saturday errands, was due to the fact it is very stylish and made for a great outfit choice to pop into some local shops that I was meeting with about upcoming collaborations for spring (Hint, hint: I'm trying to get it in order so I can begin featuring different local shops monthly on here!) as well as dressy enough to snag lunch at the Grand Concourse after a long day of meetings and photo shoots! Not to mention, I thought the pop of color from the pleats in this dress were a great way to add some color to the gloomy Pittsburgh scenery.

One thing that I am an absolute sucker for when it comes to clothing is detail. No matter how minute or huge the details maybe, I always love garments that have unique detailing, needless to say, this dress from StyleWe nails it! The reason I chose this dress was firstly because I loved the slit that included pleats that are every color of the rainbow, and because I thought the beaded detailing was a great touch. The craftsmanship of these details should also be noted due to the fact not a bead or pleat was out of place. I also loved this dress due to its soft and silky rayon material which made this piece very comfortable to wear all day.

I also have to say, the other thing I loved about this playful dress, is that it fit me just right and I thought it looked great on me! Though this dress is just a basic shift dress, it was incredibly fun to style due to its all of its colored pleats. So to style this dress, I chose to pair it with my embossed Prada bag from Tradesy, a gold cuff bracelet by Louis Vuitton, and lastly my new Hermes rodeo charm! The reason I chose to pair this dress with the purse charm, is smply because my Hermes charm is blue and pink, which matches perfectly with the core colors in this dress' pleats. And as we all know, I love to color coordinate.
