A Plaid Attitude

In the intersection of plaid's lines lies everything I appreciate in fashion: bold hues versus organized patterns, rock star edge versus timeless appeal, feminine versus masculine, modern versus vintage. I was inspired by a cleverly paired leather and plaid outfit on Stilettos &Sequins and decided to recreate the look with my mom's vintage plaid shirt for Christmas dinner. She was so touched that I wore her shirt, which she described as "very expensive" at the time (1970s). It's one of the only garments she saved from that time period, so I plan to carry on the tradition and save it for Ruby to wear. Who knows? Maybe by the time she's old enough, ruffled plaid shirts may have cycled right back on trend.
Shirt: Vintage (Mom's); Skirt: Hello Kitty from Target; Tights: Hue; Shoes: Urban Outfitters
Patterned tights are always fun!
Please excuse the blurriness of this photo. Maybe I should have asked Santa for a new camera!
