Footnotes: Pleats Please

Footnotes: Pleats Please on vickiarcher.com

What about a pleat?

A pleated skirt to be exact. If a pencil is not your point and tulle is too ballerina what about a pleated midi skirt? The more simple in style, the better a pleat looks; with a narrow waistband – falling on or under the knee – that’s all we need.

On the weekend, I like a pleated skirt with a sweater, to keep it casual, and a pair of short boots or even sneakers. Ready to ditch the sweater, then mix in a simple tee and cute cardigan.

Pleats please; why not?

Do find Cabana Magazine if you are an interior lover. This magazine, reminiscent of Fleur Cowles, Flair is a definite collector’s item. Published twice yearly and with an array of covers, it is one not to be missed. The hardcover book, Cabana Anthology, is a must for your library.

The Picasso and Paper Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts in London is one for the agenda if you are travelling through.

“Picasso didn’t just draw on paper – he tore it, burnt it, and made it three-dimensional. From studies for ‘Guernica’ to a 4.8-meter-wide collage, this major exhibition brings together more than 300 works on paper spanning the artist’s 80-year career.”

It’s a big show and very worthy of spending time.

More French drama for me in the name of Baptiste.

Julien Baptiste, on holiday in Amsterdam with his wife, assists in an investigation for his former girlfriend, the Amsterdam Chief of Police.

For his voice alone.

I LOVE a pleated skirt but my unbalanced physique (tiny torso and normal hips) make wearing a pleated skirt problematic. Of the skirt types you mention here, tulle is my choice not only for the flattering effect but I’m a ballerina at heart and in body (except for those hips!)


The Baptise drama has already aired in the UK and is definitely worth a watch. I was gripped!!! Presume you have been Vicki!!

I have been remiss in sending you a mighty “thank you” for my beautiful locket from the last emporium. I haven’t taken it off as yet….I have my grandchildren’s names inside…. so they remain close to my heart! Blessings to you and your family as we soldier through these next days!
A BIG HUG… Ginny Aldrich
