Hi! I've been looking for a pleated tea length or knee length skirt that's really flowy, but with a non-elastic and sort of wide waistband. I'd like something in either black or gray, or a summery colour, maybe a mint or coral or lavender? I would consider a patterned one. I've only been able to find ones with elastic waistbands, and they are not flattering on me. I usually wear a size 10 or 12, and I'm in Canada, so hopefully from a store that either ships here, or is located here. I'd pay up to $150 (including shipping and duties!), though preferably at or below $100. Thanks!
So, if you follow my Tumblr, which of course you should, you'll know that I had to do a little independent research for this one on which retailers are actually in Canada and which one's ship to Canada (though I'm going to try to avoid that since I hate buying something and paying most of the cost in shipping.) But, I also found Shopstyle Canada, which might be useful for you ML and my other readers in the friendly land to the north. But - enough about process, I know you just come here for results. So here they are!
Corey Lynn Calter Desi Blocked Midi skirt in purple, rust, coral at Couture Candy ($129.00 - expensive yes, but more interesting than the other ones - comes in another color pattern as well.)
Worthington Accordian Pleated Skirt with contrasting waistband in white at JC Penny ($14 on clearance - so I actually prefer the black version of this, but the picture on the website the details were hard to see, so I used the white one so you could see it better. For my tall readers, this comes in tall as well.)
ASOS Midi Skirt in Pleated Lace at ASOS ($54.30 - okay, this row is basically just my rebel row - but this is so cute I thought I'd share it - available in both coral and navy.)
Lauren by Ralph Lauren Colorblock Pleated Skirt at Hudson's Bay ($50.99 - limited sizes available but yours is one of them Reader ML - I'm not sure how I feel about the pleats not being on the sides of this skirt though. A bit odd.)
Okay ML - those are my favorites - hope one of them works for you. Have fun shopping for a lovely pleated confection for all your summer skirt having needs. :-)
