Mad For Plaid

You'd think all my years in Catholic school would have ruined me on this pattern forever but no... I adore it, especially this time of year. Designers like Ralph Lauren and Alexander McQueen really know how to work this bold pattern into their designs as do large retailers like J Crew and Williams Sonoma. If it's not a pattern you gravitate towards all year that's okay, but there is no better time than the holiday season to whip out the tartan and be merry...
