Oh JODY! Plaid! I was over at this morning and noticed in the Vintage Clothing they had a green wool plaid suit. Very cool suit but much too heavy for SoCal. I wonder if anyone would notice if I wintered in New England? :)

Nice! I love plaid. I was just thinking the other day, that it hasn't been popular for awhile, and it's about time for us to have it be popular again.

I have to go see that suit Gladys!

Kelly, I'll bet you're right. I won't be surprised to see plaid on the runways again soon.

Oh my goodness! My absolute favorite outfit in High School... high waisted, full legged, cuffed pants with a matching vest and clip on tie! In a yellow and black plaid!
Yes indeed, I was stylin'!!!

Kathleen, I also had a plaid pantsuit in high school. The pictures make me laugh now, but yes, we were stylin'!
