I have to admit, I wasn't a huge fan of printed coordinated sets when they made a big splash last year. I would would either just go for the top or the pants, but never both! But after purchasing this super cute plaid cropped top from ASOS (pictured below), which happened to have matching pants AND a duster coat, I said "what the heck" and went for it. But only after the pants went on sale...and out of season.* So this is the first time I'm actually getting to wear the set, and you know what? I LOVE IT! Check out a couple of my favorite plain patterned looks and let me know what you think! Are you mad about plaid?
*Whether you're shopping retail or resale. buy items like coats, pants, blazers and dresses out of season while they're at their lowest prices. Chances are they'll still be just as fashionable and trendy by the time you're able to wear it.
The Mad in Plaid Hatter
Hey there curve conscious shoppers! This is our first Make Me Over blog post and we're excited to share some of our favorite thrifty and stylish looks with you. We won't pretend that we've been blogging or styling as long as some of our favorite Plus Size Bloggers, but we're interested in showing you how you can shop at consignment, resale and thrift stores and still put together great outfits - on a budget! So in honor of Veterans' Day this week, we decided to put together a few military-inspired looks. Hope you enjoy the three looks we put together and a special thank you to all service men and women who have kept this country and its people safe!
