Perhaps it’s due to my Irish/Scottish roots but I’m definitely a fan of plaid (& tartan)!
*and by popular demand I’ve sifted through my box-of-awesomeness-from-the-past to bring you yet another TST themed throwback pic:
according to the back of this pic I was “out eating shabu shabu last summer” – way to be specific young Sheri
Holy eyebrows batman! Mad about plaid indeed!
I have loads of plaid in my wardrobe and had a wee bit of a hard time deciding just which bits of thrifted fabulousness to share but finally decided to build an ensemble from my refashioned-from-dude-trousers wool shorts…
Smoking jacket (thrifted) €2 – Graphic Tee (thrifted) €1.50 – Plaid-ish Bag (thrifted) €1 – Plaid Wool Shorts (stolen from the dude & refashioned) €0 – Plaid Tights (had for years) €0 – Suede lace-ups (thrifted) €3
Total cost: €7.50
I’m throwing out a couple of challenges to my fellow Thrift Style Thursday babes:

2. Pump Up Your Pics – get out of your houses, backyards & comfort zones ladies & kickstart those imaginations!

It’s no secret that I’m not much of a fashion-trend-follower & prefer to revel in my own quirky style… BUT I do have a soft spot for unique thrifty outfits so when I saw Ariane’s gingham & floral ensemble infatuation struck & I knew I had to recreate the look.
*Coincidentally I had recently been given a pair of vintage gingham trousers at the flea market by a rather flirtatious older gentleman who thought they would “suit my young self”…
…and how awesome is my mint condition 1960’s leather wristlet? The lovely elderly seller at the flea market said she got it as a gift in 1966 and never used it…this fabulous & oh-so-functional little bag shall get loads of use now!
