A Mad About Plaid Thrift Style Thursday

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

thrifty copycat: gingham stories

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”…

Just a couple of freaking cool Canadians, eh?

Flower Power Sunglasses (thrifted & refashioned) €0.20 – Floral Blouse (ebay & refashioned) €1.50 – Vintage Wristlet (flea market) €3 – Rings (thrifted & handmade) €0.10 – Vintage Gingham Trousers (flea market) €0 – Vintage Sandals (ebay) €6

Total outfit cost: €10.80

…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!

Check out Ariane’s Thrift Outfit post for her complete ensemble + some fun facts about gingham…

Denim material has been around since the 1500’s but it wasn’t until Bavarian born Levi Strauss made the first pair of blue jeans in 1873 that this fabulous fabric became a wardrobe staple…
