RED PLAID DRESS! I saw it online today and fell instantly in love with it. For those of you who don't know, I have a thing for red plaid these days. I've blogged about it before -- here and here. Thinking back now, I had a love/hate relationship with plaid when I was a kid. My mom always dressed me in it. I didn't mind it so much myself, but I always felt like a nerd at school wearing it. Then again, I was a nerd, so that makes sense.
For whatever reason, I'm all into it right now. Rick thinks it's because the Red Hot Chili Peppers wear plaid a lot. Maybe. Flea (the bass player) has some awesome red plaid pants. Or maybe it's just something from my childhood coming back into my life. All I know is that I really love this dress! I found where it was sold online, but it's out of stock, or maybe no longer available. Bummer. It was originally $89, but I saw the price had gone down to $71. Who knows -- maybe I'll find a dress like this someday. Or maybe these shoes ...
I don't get dressed up that much anymore, so I wouldn't have anywhere to wear them. I still think they're awesome. For those who don't know, I've been doing a silly thing on Twitter each day that I call the "Plaid of the Day". I find something plaid and post a picture of it. Some things are my own, others I see when I'm out and about, and some I find online -- like the dress and pumps. I don't know how long pictures stay on Twitter, but all my posts roll over to my Facebook page, if you want to look for them there.
And finally, here's a silly picture of me wearing my own red plaid pants. I hate these self-shot pictures in the mirror, but I wanted to take one and this was the only way I could get it. I found these pants at the Salvation Army for about two dollars. They're kind of fun -- especially if you like red plaid. I know -- I'm such a nerd!
