Remember Madras?



& while I'm not expecting you to go out dressed like the pic above,
it does give an idea of how much we will be seeing 
PLAID (OR CHECK?)
coming up this next season


like this Velvet top










invoke the BOHO look by adding a contrasting FLOWERED SCARF,
drape it over your shoulder, if it has fringe, tassels, so much the better...
it's meant to say "opposites attract."
this one from KENZO

but you get the idea, we have the shirt & some wonderful scarfs at SOHO Couture
in Houston, the scarfs have tassels and are under $50.00

if you don't like this look, your daughters will !!!
& here it is in the SOHO Couture Shop @ Woodway/Voss in Houston

or this fab JOIE piece, "Selma" Orange Glaze,  which we also have in the shop
or you can find here
GIVENCHY SCARF PARADISE FLOWERS
here it is in the shop as styled on a mannequin.

I'm not certain why this look appeals to me so much,
as I'm not a plaid girl at all.
maybe I think of it as "western wear" or maybe I think it's too casual,
but when the scarf is added it changes immediately to something
I really love.

I would never wear this with jeans, of course...
preferring a beautiful pair of pants or a long maxi skirt,
that way I can go almost anywhere, you know?

another example in the shop

anyway...what do you think?
would you pair these two items?

and guess what?
you probably already have a scarf in your closet that would work perfectly.
& if you don't, call me...I'll send one to you from our under $50 pieces.
