Pondering Plaid

On Saturday evening, a friend and I were invited  to enjoy an evening of food & friendship with a mutual friend at her home.  To savour a lovely casual sit down dinner on a clear November evening before the insanity of the busiest time of the year arrives.  We had a nice n toasty cosy visit plus I do believe we were served the most delicious  Osso Bucco I have even eaten!

My friend Mylene is a beautiful french woman.  She has the "je ne sais quoi" that self possessed french woman seem to exude and embody.  I absolutely loved the outfit she was wearing. It suited her so well
mirroring her own sense of style and charm. Plus I love plaid though I avoid wearing plaid because
I believe it is too young for me and never seems to work on me. On Mylene, it doesn't seem wrong. Not in the least bit. On me fashion disaster!

 Pink plaid skirt paired with a soft cashmere sweater in grey and a vibrant lilac n fuschia silk scarf worn with a really great pair of Ralph Lauren kitten heels. I was plaid with envy!

Yes, I was plaid with envy!

That got me thinking...... Hmmmm well maybe I could wear plaid..... maybe?
To be completely honest I really didn't think or don't think I can. But I am going to try and see if I can find a truly great for me garment and wear  me some plaid. Can I find a few pieces for my wardrobe reflecting my style and not leave me feeling and thinking " Good Lord! yep I am mutton dressed as lamb, what on earth are you thinking!"?

Yep, I think I can! I think I can do this, I will continue to ponder plaid until I do.

So like the squirrels who are very busy scurring around these days I have been scurring and scouring the internet to see if I can find a plaid option or two just for me and go from there.

I am not sure though I think I am on the right track.

My snooping has lead me to discover a boutique in St. Henry called Perfide. It is located at 4217 rue Notre-Dame O., Montreal. I see it is not open on Mondays, otherwise I would have myself prancing on over there this afternoon.

I came across these images on the website for a local media production company. No idea how n why I was looking on this site for articles of clothing made of plaid but well somehow I was.

I spotted these sweaters and the top two are well not exactly plaid but they are plaid inspired. I think maybe I could wear a sweater such as these two....... I do have to get myself over there! I must!

I am happy to say I am excited to pondering plaid and to see where this is going to lead me!

I like this look. I need to get back into wearing plaid myself. The scarf is nice too.
