Does my bum make this plaid look big?
I hadn't ventured out to the Deseret Industries thrift shop in quite awhile. Julia V's review on yelp.com re Deseret pretty much sums it up, "Great if you need anything but clothing. I swear they get their shipments via time travel from Iowa, circa 1994." Time traveling Deseret Industries came through for me. I found not one plaid skirt but FOUR plaid skirts to try on. I settled on this Tribeca Studio lavendar plaid ($4), and earlier in the week had snagged this necklace from Thrift Town ($7.99). I thought the beads alone were worth that.
I have never really been a fan of plaid. Country western wear has utilized plaid since the beginning of time, so I have a few CW shirts - def country plaid. There is flannel shirt plaid - I always associate with the Pacific Northwest grunge/alt/etc. Have to admit this new ensemble has rocketed up to my favorite of this year's pickins.

Will you be wearing plaid this season?
