Tough Tartan

September 19, 2011

Here is my version of the following trend for fall fashion:

Tartan Plaid 


{Tartan Plaid Blazer ~ Thrifted / Vintage Green Crepe Skirt ~ Thrited / Black T-Shirt ~ Merona via Target / Black Pull-on Booties ~ Forever 21 / Black Leather and Gold Handbag ~ Daisy Boutique / Gold Lions head Necklace ~ Vintage / Thrifted / Gold and Black Watch ~ KVZ / Cyrstal Bangle ~ KJL}

There is something about a pleated skirt that reads 'school girl' to me so I decided to toughen this outfit up a bit with leather! 

This vintage crepe skirt is a really interesting piece; I had two people ask me today what it was made out of.  And the best thing? It does NOT wrinkle. Even after sitting at my desk for a few hours, no wrinkles. I love it!  I can't wait to rock this with a denim shirt and tights soon. Do you do that? Plan your next outfit when you discover a piece that you love? That is my goal when buying things.  I have to imagine it working with a few items in my closet. Or else, what's the use in getting it?

I thrifted this blazer last year and when I saw that tartan plaid was on trend this season, I couldn't wait to pull it out.  It also helps that it's been beautifully crisp these last few days, which makes it so much easier to grab those forgotten blazers and jackets. I honestly cannot imagine buying a blazer anywhere other than the thrift store.  :)

Ok, so. Tartan plaid for you this season? Yay or nay?

xoxo, thanks for reading!

  38. I love that skirt! I doubt if I went thrifting I'd find anything like it.

  39. That outfit is perfection.
    Its the perfect cross between structured and flowy.
    I would normally shy away from the darker plaids, but it just goes to show that you don't have to reject pieces if you know how to style them.
