I've been on the lookout for a nice plaid shirt for awhile, but it's hard to find one that doesn't make me look like a man, a lumberjack, a preppy boater, a cowgirl, or grungy.  Which is difficult, since those are all genres from which plaid takes its inspiration from.  I wouldn't mind looking a bit Scottish though.

It also turns out that it's rather difficult finding a feminine-appealing plaid shirt in the men's section of the thrift store... so I haven't had any success thus far.

This season I've found two that come pretty close (from LOFT and YesStyle), but I don't have a chance to see their true colors in person and am not sure if I should take the risk and buy them online.

This top is a lovely plum color and the Peter Pan-like collar and henley buttons tone down the masculinity.

This top incorporates the wrap/drape style that I've been interested in trying for quite some time now.  The plaid itself is more of a window-pane pattern, which isn't as harsh on the eyes either.

Found some retro sewing patterns at Value Village today that made me laugh.  I actually did buy a bomber jacket pattern from the 80's that I will attempt in the future though!
