I don’t hate plaid. In fact, it’s quite the opposite. I just need a break from it at least one season. I don’t think I can bear another summer of seeing every girl in Los Angeles wearing denim cut-offs and a plaid button-down.

Okay, so if plaid has been hot in LA this summer it ought to be trickling down to Austin… in the next couple of months. I do love plaid — I’m a graphics gal — but I really don’t feel the need to re-visit the grunge era, so here’s hoping. What I will be INCREDIBLY glad to see the back of are the stupid, slovenly, frumpy, empire-waisted, to-the-floor jersey dresses. ACK!!! I cannot TAKE that anymore!!!
