Checkmate

Dress - Topshop  Plaid Shirt - American Apparel (men's)  Clutch - BCBG  

After a thousand and one years I've finally started to almost think that I like plaid. Living in this part of Canada I have always associated plaid with lazy outfits. My inner critic could never get over how those who used plaid shirts as part of their lazy day outfits couldn't be bothered to wear them well. From sloppy fits to odd sewing I've sampled enough plaid shirts with my eyes to think I'd never find the one for me. Not just that I'd never find the one, but that I didn't need any plaid in my life. But just like that I walked into American Apparel (we need to talk about my sudden love for them sometime) and I couldn't stop thinking about this one. It's thick, long and oversize in all the right places. This may be the universe's own personal checkmate to my sometimes stubborn mind. You can never say never...
