Hello friends, and Happy Friday eve. It feels like this week dragged by, I guess with the Thanksgiving holiday it spoiled me for not having to work 5 days which was a great mini-vacation. Oh well, I am getting back into the swing of things because December is going to be a very busy month.
Last Thursday I, like many others were thankful for the opportunity to spend time with my family and especially for having our son home from college. This Thursday, I am thankful that he is back in school studying hard for finals (yea, I said it…don’t laugh) and for also having an opportunity to be the Social Media Manager for B.O.S.S., which I will tell you more about next week.
Today, I am also thankful for being invited by FashionPlateKc, to participate in a special holiday fashion series, and this week the first post is entitled Mad for Holiday Plaid.
Plaid is a classic pattern, but most times you think of it being worn only by girls in school uniforms. I have several plaid blazers in my closet but they are black and grey and I wanted something more festive. I kinda lucked out when I found this green plaid blazer at Goodwill last week.
Even after removing the shoulder pads and pushing up the sleeves it was still too snug so I’ll have to re-donate it. The sleeveless turtleneck and skirt as well as the Nine West purse were also thrifted.
The beads were a great find from a Flea Market Vendor and the brown colorblock shoes are from Rugged Wearhouse.
