A Mad About Plaid Thrifty Thursday

Perhaps it’s due to my Irish/Scottish roots but I’m definitely a fan of plaid (& tartan)!

*and by popular demand I’ve sifted through my box-of-awesomeness-from-the-past to bring you yet another TT themed throwback pic:

according to the back of this pic I was “out eating shabu shabu last summer” – way to be specific young Sheri

Holy eyebrows batman! Mad about plaid indeed!

I have loads of plaid in my wardrobe and had a wee bit of a hard time deciding just which bits of thrifted fabulousness to share but finally decided to build an ensemble from my refashioned-from-dude-trousers wool shorts…

Smoking jacket (thrifted) €2 – Graphic Tee (thrifted) €1.50 – Plaid-ish Bag (thrifted) €1 – Plaid Wool Shorts (stolen from the dude & refashioned) €0 – Plaid Tights (had for years) €0 – Suede lace-ups (thrifted) €3

Total cost: €7.50

Something I Lurv for Thrifty Thursday

I scored an awesome, butter soft leather jacket years ago in a London charity shop & wear it whenever the weather permits. Sure, it’s seen better days, has some battered areas here & there + it’s a bit big on me but I lurv it nonetheless.

It can so easily be worn dressed down for everyday errands…

Knit newsboy cap (freebie) €0  –  Cowl scarf (refashioned) €0  –  Vintage longsleeved t-shirt (thrifted) €1  –  Leather jacket (thrifted) €8  –  My ‘everyday bag’ (gift from husband) €0  – Cross jeans (TK Maxx) €10  –  Suede lace-ups (thrifted) €3  –  Vintage Driving Gloves (inherited from Tante Uschi) €0

Total outfit cost: €22

…or as the perfect topper to a casually chic ensemble:

Scarf (thrifted) €0.50  –  Leather jacket (thrifted) €8  –  Ditsy floral dress (thrifted) €1  –  Vintage handbag (inherited from Tante Uschi) €0  –  Boots (ebay) €4

Total outfit cost: €13.50
