Scotch (Plaid), Neat

Plaid taffeta dress (Eva Franco)
I love the holidays. I love dressing for the holidays. And everything about this Eva Franco dress screams holidays. Subtle it's not...but then no one has ever accused me of subtlety.
Faux fur trimmed wrap (Joseph Ribkoff); Black leather gloves with red topstitching (Nordstrom)
The Scotch plaid pattern and large bow at the waist remind me of a perfectly wrapped package twinkling under a rustically elegant Christmas tree. In fact, should I come across this pattern in wrapping paper, you can bet I'll be picking up several rolls.
Safety Pin clutch (Bodhi); Crystal and faux fur boots (Lauren Lorraine)
Fur trimmed accents and a hint of sparkle add a touch of drama (the right kind of holiday drama) for cocktails and a Christmas concert to celebrate the Season with friends. It also seemed fitting to wear this dress to see a capella group Straight No Chaser last weekend - it's my own version of Scotch (plaid), neat!
