{outfit post} Plaid & Fur

Tuesday, January 1, 2013

Confession: I am not a big fan of plaid. Well... I used to not be. I don't know what has come over me. All of a sudden I am drawn to everything plaid! In the past the only plaid I was a fan of was Burberry, but now everything has changed. Even though I have a new affinity for plaid, I still feel I needed a shot gun or a blue ox to go with this look today! I found this awesome button down at the Goodwill, in the men's section! I recently read that a couple of bloggers find some good stuff in the men's department, so I thought I'd give it a shot. At the thrift store, it's always a good idea to scour every department, because so often times they mix up every gender and size. I can't tell you how many times I've seen women's jeans and blouses in the men's section. But this top today is a man's shirt, and I am more than happy to sport it!
