It's all about plaids

Wednesday 6 April 2011
Checks, plaids, tartans. Whatever you call it, I think the pattern is as wearable and versatile as stripes. My obsession with stripes knew no boundaries. Striped tees, cardigan, tops etc, you name it, I bought it. Not just for me but Little L too. Don't get me wrong, I'm still crazy about the nautical breton tees but I've developed an infatuation for plaids. Perhaps it's from constantly gazing at collections from Isabel Marant and APC.

Here are what I call my cheap-as-chips selections

Uniqlo Madras Check Short Sleeve Dress £9.99

Banana Republic Plaid Cowl Neck Shirt £45 now £9.99

Gap Plaid Shirt dress £35.95 now £19.99

And if you feel like splurging.....

A.P.C Madras Multi Check Blouse available from Asos £85
I can imagine this being a staple in my wardrobe over spring and summer.

A.P.C Madras Red Check Pocket Dress available at Asos £105
I can't decide whether to get the dress or the tunic. It looks great belted.

Isabel Marant Nabala Dress from Ruby & Tallulah £105
I know I've posted this before but the more I see it, the more I want it.


  1. I love plains! The print has something spontaneous and effortless. <3

  2. They're so easy to wear and match. I've seen wonderful plaid dresses from Isabel Marant's previous collections but nothing that really stood out this time round.

  3. Shoot - of course I want the APC top!

  4. The color goes beautifully against our skintone. not that I'm enabling....
