First off, I would like to wish you all a very happy and fulfilling 2016, and I hope that you all had some time over the holidays to enjoy with loved ones. My intentions were not to drop off the face of the blogosphere these past few weeks, however the truth is, that life finally caught up to me these last few weeks and I burnt out really bad towards the end of the year. However, instead of dwelling on the past, a New Year is upon us and I am looking forward to what it brings.
With that being said, the first look of the year features the ever classic pleated skirt. Car wash pleats were all over the Valentino and Oscar De La Renta Fall/Winter shows, but if you’re looking for something a little more ready to wear, then a regular pleated skirt will do just fine. I styled mine here with booties and the usual offender – I mean scarf. I should point out that I do own multiple blanket scarves but this one gets me every time, it must be that red plaid that I simply cannot resist. For colder days I would suggest adding a cutesy toque and OTK boots, or layer on those leg warmers.
On a side note, to all of my lovely readers – I wanted to give you a deep and heartfelt thank you – for your time, support, comments, and even patience at times. I never imagined that a part time hobby would ever evolve into what it has so far, and I only have you to thank for this. I hope your personal endeavors blossom and flourish just as mine have, this is my wish for you! There are many exciting things to come for House of Illusions in 2016 and I hope you join me for another stylish year. To keep up with me real time, you can always add me on Instagram.
