I’ve watched the rise and fall and rise again of the plaid trend with a pensive eye; for me, the look conjures my first few visits to London as a child, Kurt Kobain, all my my teenaged years filled with angst, and marching in the high school band for the St. Patty’s day parade. So no happy style moments for me. I liked how Karen, over at Where Did You Get That wore hers, but I am not bold enough to do it from head to toe.
