If you’re a regular reader, you know that my favorite colors is plaid. And it’s Mad for Plaid over at SpyGirl this week. This should’ve been a match made in heaven.
Unfortunately, I’m still in the midst of my 50 Dresses challenge and woe is me! I have plaid shirts and blazers and skirts and shoes. But I only have one (ONE!) dress and I’m saving it for Friday because Friday.
Oh, what’s a gal to do? (Please permit me yet another indulgent first-world problem dwell.)
Why, incorporate all my plaid items into dress ensembles, of course!
Today, I give you a pair of plaid heels from Betsey Johnson’s collection. They’re thoroughly uncomfortable – surprisingly not because of the heel height but because of the toe box which is unnaturally short and my toes keep stubbing themselves within the shoe when I walk – but I keep them primarily because they’re plaid and I paid a pretty penny for them and I’ll be damned if I get my money’s worth before surrendering them to the cull pile.
Because the shoes are the showpiece of the outfit, I chose a simple black and white look up top. The only acknowledgement to embellishment is the bit of sparkle on the top’s bib-like bodice. I do want to point out that I’ve finally successfully duped that style I so love – that whole top under dress thing. I guess I just needed the proper dress to accommodate my rather fussy body, eh?
