Fall makes me think about lots of great things… new school notebooks, apple crisp (which I make myself!) and plaid. When I was younger I had little plaid skirts and wore actual knee socks. During the 90’s, flannel and plaid was popular with the entire 90’s grunge thing – and I remember I had one flannel shirt that I loooved. It was peachy with turquoise and if I knew where it was I swear I would still wear it.
But it’s okay, because right now plaid is so trendy for fall 09 that it’s impossible to find a store that isn’t stocking it. So the chances of me finding a new favorite plaid shirt is good. Plaid shirts for women are major right now. MAJOR!
There are lots of plaid shirts online to shop through. They’re virtual racks that let you think about what color combination for the shirt you might like while walking barefoot to your kitchen to get a bowl of Lucky Charms and think about what it’d be like to kiss Jude Law, and THEN come back and make your final decision.
It’s so much easier than being in a store and trying to make sure have time to make your purchase without being late to your sister’s birthday party. (What, that never happens to you?)
Plaid shirts are like comfort food. Beauty Fool talked about Five Ways to Boost Confidence and I think one of them could also be wearing plaid. Because you’ll look great, but you’ll also feel so comfortable it’ll be craaazy. So, here are four plaid shirts I think you’ll really like:
