Happy Friday ladies!

Today, just for you, we have a hot tip on one of our favorite (and new) fashion blogs, The Pleat! This blog has a mission statement that I can personally relate with and TOTALLY appreciate. Their mission is to make fashion fun, not frightening.

So let’s take a look at what they’re up to…..

The Pleat is a newly launched website about shopping and style. The site is brought to you by four former magazine editors who met while working at Life and Style Weekly – Desireé Marr, Julie Chen, Samara D’Auria, and Tiffanie Graham.
 

The Pleat showcases the latest current trends, street style, and shopping finds from free – $15,000, with an emphasis on e-tail resources. The lovely ladies behind the scenes present themselves in a fun and friendly manner, because they think fashion shouldn’t be taken too seriously!  
 
Readers receive shopping discounts and can enter for giveaway items.  
Last of all, The Pleat wants to share what’ on their shopping lists, and find out what’s on yours!
 
Here is one of their blog posts that was totally adorable and turned out to be a very insightful post on one of our hard-to-wear products:
 
 
 
If a diagnostic tool such as a Fashion Difficulty Scale (FDS) existed, these sequined harems would probably rate around a 7.5.  We’re talking 1 being something like a black cashmere v-neck (where’s the EASY button from Staples when you need it?) and 10 being comparable to a Comme des Garçons bump dress (even professionalsdon’t try this at home!). There’s a lot to contend with here, it’s true- drop crotch, sequins, living up to the legacy of MC Hammer- but this, dear reader, is the beauty of DEALICIOUS.  
 
We at ThePLEAT are here to support your shopping endeavors and to (gently) push you outside your fashion comfort zone. These surprisingly wearable pants are $41*-not a terrible sum to pay for injecting a little fun into your wardrobe (not to mention a cute alternative to a sequined mini!).  And who knows? You might even discover that your own personal FDS has a much wider range than you originally thought.
