check out this extraordinary 1930s abstract-plaid dress at TangerineBoutique.com. Now, that’s what I phone call plaid. None of your sissy “Black Watch” or “Campbell,” nosirree. This is a plaid that is expending all its considerable energy providing a big “oh yeah?” to the Depression.
It’s only $68, and it’s a “generous medium” according to the proprietor: “The bust procedures 38″ the waist 31″ and the hips 40″. The length of the skirt is just over 27″ and the back bodice procedures 16″ from neck to waist.” Tangerine shop goes on to say “It would work very well on a tall frame.” To which I say, “Well, yeah! It’s from the 1930s! They euthanized short people then.”
It’s got (you can’t really see it in the picture) a adorable bit sailor tie around the neck, too. And, of course, pockets. Go get it before the bank pertains to take the farm.
