Mad for Plaid

I was going to title this post something I had yet to determine, and then mention in passing how I resisted the urge to call it “Mad for Plaid,” but that just seemed like a sneaky way of using-that-phrase-but-not-really. So I just did it. I admitted that I am crazy for plaid, and I don’t care who knows it. But so is everyone else, as the iconic fabric was everywhere on Fall 2013 runways and editorials. It’s not like this trend is new, but this year it feels especially acute. To fulfill my craving for lines and checks, I’ve been scouring thrift stores, and soon I’ll share  a couple of my finds. In the meantime, here’s some of the high-fashion inspiration I’ve been seeing.
