PLAIDitude







 
 For optimal viewing gratification please enjoy this video while perusing my post.



"Gonna rock it up, roll it up, do it all, have a ball 
Saturday night, Saturday night."



Tartan, Tweed and Houndstooth is the theme for this month's Ahead of the Curve collective post.  The perfect theme to show some PLAIDitude and do a little tribute to the Scottish, 70's pop band, The Bay City Rollers. The Rollers brought seventies plaid fashions to the forefront and were dubbed the "Tartan teen sensations from Edinburgh." Do the creep and take a peep at some The Bay City Rollers kickin' plaid styles shown in the YouTube video above. The look I put together for this post is something I would wear for a date on a  S-A-T-U-R-D-A-Y night. 
Dress: CITY CHIC 
 (Size XXL)
I'm a huge fan of City Chic. They have beautiful, well-made clothing. I have never once been disappointed in the quality of an item that I have purchased from them. I totes fell for this army girl black mesh tunic because it was completely unique and blended hard edges and soft draping perfectly. This tunic is a bit on the longer side, it goes right to my knees and fits perfectly everywhere on my body. If I did have one warning about this dress it would be that it wrinkles very easily. I steamed this dress right before the photos and as you can see it has crinkled up quite a bit. It doesn't bother me so much with this item because I feel it has a bit of a post-apocalyptic vibe anyway.
Leggings: Forever 21+
(Size 3X)
Unfortunately these leggings are no longer in stock. I only purchased them a few weeks ago, but they sold out very quickly. I hope Forever 21 will restock some new plaid leggings in the future. In the mean time, you can get similar leggings at ASOS and Domino Dollhouse. Plaid is always popular around this time of the year.

Hat: Value Village
  You have seen me mention Value Village before, they are the Canadian version of Savers, a U.S. thrift store. I peeped this hat a while back and was wavering on whether or not it was for me. It is much louder than any hat I have ever worn and I was not sure I would pull it off with my blue hair. My husband talked me into it and I could not say no for $5, but I am still not totally sold. What do you think? Is it working for me?

Boots: ASOS
(Size 10) 
My New Look wrap-around flat boots are a leather-look boot with a low heel, side zipper, and wrap-around strap design. These boots are not wide width but I took a chance on them as I am able to get away with some regular width shoes. They turned out great and fit like a dream! They have become my go-to, day-to-day boots for Fall. They are currently on sale for $20!! Such a steal!
