Pleats and Pearls

Dress - The Limited, Necklace - Avon, Shoes - Style and Co via Macy's, Clutch and Cuff - New York and Co
I've been falling in love with the pleats trend. Pleats add fullness to my smaller lower body. Threfore, creating balance. The only unfortunate thing is that it also adds fullness to the mid section...and I don't need any of that. Completed the outfit with pearls for a ladylike look. Anyone love pleats??
