As you very well know, I am a fan of pleats. I like how fresh and crisp they can look, and pleated skirts are my current favorite, whether they’re solid colored, short, or high-waisted. This multi-colored pleated skirt from SugarLips fit the bill perfectly and I was honored when they sent me the piece so that I could review it.
Check out more outtakes from this shoot here – just log into your Facebook account to view.
I tried this out with my favorite BCBG blouse but I liked the sleek look of the black tank and the cropped blazer with the skirt; it made the look work for either the office or an evening out. And you know how much I adore a versatile look!
Now tell me, have you tried out the pleats trend this Summer? Are you a fan of multicolored pieces like this adorable skirt that can be styled in multiple ways?
Well, we’ve all survived the month full of fashion weeks – from New York to London to Milan to Paris. Am I the only one buzzing with ideas and dying for the weather to improve so that I can get to the business of dressing, and accessorizing, for Spring?
To celebrate the changing seasons and the florals, brights and “pops of color” we’ll soon be sporting, I’d like to offer you all a little shopping money to help you get ready for Spring.
I will randomly pick one winner this Saturday, March 24 and mail them a $50 gift certificate from Bloomingdale’s to help with your Spring shopping needs and there are FOUR ways to enter to win this contest, choose as many as you’d like!

First, a little news. This techno-phobic blogged has - you guessed it - finally been convinced to join Twitter. Brave new world and all that. Yes, I just got Facebook and Pinterest 30 seconds ago, but apparently social media is where it’s at. So if you’d like to “follow me” on Twitter click on the Follow @MoiContreLaVie button to the right.
And on a more exciting note, the awards season has officially begun! The People’s Choice Awards were the night before last and the celebrities worked the red carpet in an array of bright, colorful frocks.
Moi Contre La Vie now has its own Facebook page, so please take a look when you have time.
As you can see, I’ll be posting much more frequently and more informally on Facebook than on the MCLV blog. Expect interesting and provacative articles on food, health and fitness, tons of fashion ideas, photos, news and sale notices, as well as links to great blogs that cover topics that I think you’ll find to your liking.
Don’t hesitate to let me know what you’re interested in seeing or learning about, always happy to take requests!
