mad for plaid

(Derek Heart flannel top, Bubblegum denim, Kashmere scarf, thrifted vest, Zara heels}

There always comes that time of year when I go a little bit crazy for a plaid color combo. Red in particular is my weakness. Perhaps it reminds of the upcoming holiday season, or Dolce & Gabbana's fall 2008 plaid-tastic campaign, but one thing is for certain, I am in looove, and this year is no exception! I plan on stocking up on this statement making tartan cloth in every shade of the rainbow. I may even steal the bf's assorted selection of hue's- because we all know the boys gravitate towards the plaid as much as we try to get them to wear something else (as the bay area bloggers nod in agreement, because the bf happend to show last night wearing said plaid shirt)!

Now, can we talk about how rad this vest is?? Yup that's me gloating because I scored this bad boy in Zanesville, Ohio at a Goodwill none the less, at -ahem- a cool $4, holla! It's kind of amazing, and I don't really want to take it off. Here's to rad under five scores. 


  1. you are seriousily the cutest thing ever :)

  2. FOUR DOLLARS?? OMG, I was thinking I was going to comment and say how cute it looks with the plaid shirt/scarf, and lament the fact that I can't find a cute vest I like that is flattering and doesn't cost a bagillion dollars. But nevermind. Clearly, I need to hit up the SF Goodwill at some point.

    Thanks for your sweet comment today! So glad we were able to connect, and hopefully we can learn more about each other through our blogs!! Sorry I had to split so early yesterday...
