90’s grudge is back with a less-greasy and touch of glam twist. I love mixing and matching themes with my style. I saw this look on Pinterest (pictured left) and was excited I had what it took to re-create it (pictured right).
I’ve held on to this plaid button up for many years… I mean, it’s from Delia’s. Do you guys remember Delia’s? Pretty sure it was cool when I was in middle school, but hey some things are just classic and that’s how I feel about this shirt. It was one of those things I just couldn’t let go of.
There are so many different things that can be done with plaid from casual to dressy. If you ever have an item in your closet that you’re holding on to but not sure why or how to wear it anymore, go to Pinterest and get ideas!
I love this idea of pairing casual plaid with an Aztec inspired necklace and shiny black leggings to dress it up. Trade out the heels for black strappy sandals and you have a perfect day look that can be transformed with a pair of heels for an effortless yet sexy night out on the town.
Bust out that old grungy plaid and put your own glam twist on it! It doesn’t have to cost much… see below for all the super affordable places I got the items in my outfit.

I just moved from Burbank to Studio City and it’s a whole new world. It’s a younger, hipper crowd here and it’s greatly awakening my fashion senses. I go to Trader Joe’s and feel like I’m surrounded by people who stepped out of an Urban Outfitters catalog. It has inspired me to get back into my boho chic vibe.
Another great thing about moving is having an excuse to purge half my wardrobe. This usually is no easy feat for me, I’m a bit of a closet hoarder. I know how trends can come back and then I regret getting rid of those clogs or that romper that made a comeback. But I had things in my closet that I hadn’t worn since early college (man saying that makes me feel old) and it was just time for them to go. The great thing about this though is that it brings out clothes that you completely forgot about. My closet was so overwhelming that some quality items were getting lost in there. I found so many gems, it was like going shopping. I suggest anyone who has an overgrown wardrobe does this before feeling the need to go buy more.
I wore this outfit to a free Wailers (you know, from Bob Marley and the Wailers) concert downtown LA. The drape vest is an example of one of those things I found in my closet that I forgot about. The pants are amazing too. Super affordable (Target!), very in right now and they feel like pajamas! I felt very laid back yet still put together, because let’s be real, I’m no true hippie. I had a great night though and I must say I prefer this outfit to a dress and heels any day.
