Dear Santa,

I want all of the plaid and all of the leopard print, please.  Is that too much to ask? They look so great together.

Mani Monday – Mad for Plaid Edition

It is no secret that I am mad for plaid.  My first nail art was a plaid nail like this one with red nails a year ago.  I have been hooked on nail art every since.  My love of plaid is shown in It’s time for Plaid! , Plaid and Leopard, Pink and Plaid, Black Watch, Stripes, Sequins and Lace, Matchy Matchy , Beam Me Up , and Plaid Tidings.  In case you clicked on any of the items (like the amazing plaid shoes) and received a a sold out notification, several items come back in stock a few times.  It is worth a second try.


The color is“Rouge Red” by CND Vinylux.  The manicure and nail art are by Olive & June.

Happy Monday!



It’s time for Plaid!

It’s beginning to feel a lot like the holidays which to me says it’s time for plaid.  I am mad for plaid as it brings back happy memories of when the Preppy Handbook was my bible. Plaid dresses up even the most basic holiday attire and adds the perfect touch to home holiday decor.

Last year  J. Crew had plaid shoes and pants.  I was lucky enough to get two of each and wore them repeatedly throughout the holiday season.  They sold out fast (within a day of being on the website).


This year is another chance to add to your prodigious plaid pantheon with their two new adorable styles that are linked and shown below.   They are available now through the links below.  They will hit the website next week and will be featured in the December Style Guide.  Now is the time to snap them up.  I ordered both today.  Don’t delay.
