Plaid, Leather & Booties

SONY DSC

Wow. What a bad blogger I’ve been. I don’t even know how I’ve stayed away for a little over 2 weeks, and I apologize. My days have been so hectic with starting my new job, along with my family life. I am back, though!! And better than ever ;) BUT, and an unfortunate but, due to our lovely Montreal weather, *insert sarcasm here*, outfit photos will have to begin being taken indoors. Yes, I know the lighting and scenery is clearly better outdoors, but I would rather a blank wall to accompany my outfit rather then a cold :P I’ll try to get as many pictures out of the house as I can, but for the meantime, please enjoy my grey wall.

As I’ve mentioned previously, I’ve been hunting for perfect booties that would fit my style, as well as my wallet. I was thrilled when I came across these booties while setting up the shoe stock room. They’re perfect, as they can be worn with a dress or jeans, and the heel is high enough for some height, and low enough to be worn at work.

Are you a fan of fall fashion, or do you long for the days of shorts & ice cream? Do tell!! Have an enjoyable day and stay classy!

SONY DSCYes, another plaid shirt to go with the one I featured on my week of style here (and here, here, here :P)

SONY DSCThe gold plate on these heels is what really caught my eye. I’ve always mentioned how much I love simple items with that added touch, and these booties fall right into that category.

Mad for Plaid

It’s no secret that the 90’s has made a comeback in fashion the past few months, and following months as well. With crop tops being seen everywhere, grungy styles, flatforms/platforms, shirts/sweaters/anything that has sleeves wrapped around our waists, and I can go on and on mentioning the many influences being seen on the streets, in magazines, and websites galore.

The one 90’s trend I’m posting about today is plaid. A print that was first introduced at the end of the 16th century, then later popularized in the 60’s, huge in the 90’s, and now back in the…well, 2013.

You can find plaid shirts, pants, bags, scarves, etc. Looking for a specific item in plaid? I guarantee you can find it somewhere, somehow. Here I put together a few different items that sport the particular pattern, and pieces that I fancy. I actually purchased my first (that’s a lie. I owned a couple of plaid shirts way back when while sitting on my bed listening to none other than Nirvana…ok, and BSB….that’s right, BSB over Nsync anyday!), plaid shirt since forever ago and will happily be featuring it tomorrow! For today, hope you enjoy the chosen items seen below!

Are you a fan? Not so much? Own an item, or two, or three, of the mentioned pattern? Do tell! Have a wonderful day, and stay classy!

P.s. How awesome is that plaid bra?? Worn under a muscle tee, with a little peek of the print = hot! And I need those jeans in my life!
