Delia's: Completely Mad For Plaid

I got a Delia's catalog in the mail today, and it seems like they're really banking on this '90s thing to take off: Everything is plaid. Or buffalo check. Everything.

In the past I have enjoyed shopping from Delia's, but this plaid trend just won't work for me. I'm a city slicker, not a lumberjack! And besides: I did it in the '90s. I'm too old to play this time around. Welcome to My So Called Life, okay?!?! Anyway: The plaid. There's lots of it.

Will you look at all the colors?!?! Now, as we mentioned in August, buffalo check was declared "impossible to miss" on the runways in 2008. Welcome to 2009: We're drowning in it!

If a cardiagan's not right for you, try a plaid scarf — with a bright coat!

If a bright coat doesn't do it for you, go ahead and get a plaid coat. Or a check coat.

A lot of people are referencing their plaid memories of 90s grungedom, but I am a child of the late 90s Abercrombie and Fitch preppydom, and there was a lot of plaid there, too. I loved it then and I love it now. I have plaid converse and I love them :) #delias
