"Mad" about Plaid!

I like plaid in theory.  Several weeks ago, I popped 3 plaid skirts into my $5 bag at my favorite thrift store.  This is one of them.  Visually, I think it makes me look a little heavier than I am - at least I'm HOPING that is the only reason I look a little large!

  1. Plaid is always in trend, so you did well! I would suggest wearing boots and maybe a vest over the shirt to balance out your look. You do still look great!!

  2. That's a great skirt, I agree with Sharon about the vest or a cardi.
    And may I suggest that you cut the hemline of it to shorten a bit... I loved seeing you with a shorter skirt and I think you look more elegant.

    Have a nice weekend


  3. This is my first time visiting your blog and I am happy to be here. I will be back. I love buying my wardrobe from thrift stores, and have been doing so for years. Items are already broken in, and have a softer look about them than brand new.

    I personally stay away from plaids and any other patterns that make my hips look larger than they already are. :-) Since you love plaids, maybe go for them in jackets, with a complimentary skirt or slacks. Just my 2 cents worth.

    I think you have put together some wonderful ensembles.

    You are an inspiration.
