Blogtober14 skip down the page I promise there is a Halloween Memory.
We have all seen it, that super, fabulous awesome Buffalo Plaid Dress from Old Navy. It truly is a thing of beauty, it encompasses all that is right about Fall. Well I like the rest of you fell in love with this dress. Then it started popping up on blogs everywhere… now what is a style blogger to do, follow the crowd or stand unique???
But I love this dress and if bloggers I follow are wearing this isn’t it OK. what is it they say to mimic is the sincerest form of flattery or something similar???
And then I really looked at all the lovely bloggers wearing this and realized how is the dress so different then a blouse or a necklace… we can all wear the same thing and still make it uniquely ours. Then I said nope I have a plaid dress so I really do not need another one and then damn it Old Navy posted it on line for $22.00..
So then I re-visited a few sites…
I debated this post, I debated wearing the dress but then I figured can I own this, can I make it mine??
Then I worried, is it cool to use another bloggers picture?? if I am giving full credit and referring to their blogs am I allowed to use their image???
Midnight edit I removed the collage but have left the links for you. Kind of changes the impact of my post but I am so unsure of the blogging rules I better not
Well I hope each of these lovely bloggers take this in the spirit intended and you should still hop on over and give them a shoutout and see how they styled this baby.
Aren’t they all lovely, everyone giving the dress their own special twist. I first saw this on Shanna back in September but I had also just fell in love with the Target Plaid shoes she had on and figured I cannot copy everything this woman wears, she is going to think I am a crazy stalker woman ( as I sit here watching Stalker) and then Meaganstyled it… well if two of my favourite Style Bloggers love this look who am I to buck the trend right??? and then bam even mommy bloggers I follow were wearing it to blogging conferences,
So I dug out the credit card, opened up the laptop and hello Old Navy..
“You had me at Buffalo Plaid”
PS I am not being paid to continually mention a few bloggers but obviously I admire their style
Style confession I think next time I want to try my leather leggings for just a bit more coverage.
