Fall Winter Trends Plaid Coat Plus Size Forever Plaid

The last time I wore plaid was when Jill and I had our first post valentines party (pic below), that was many years ago. Since then I’ve managed to avoid plaid until I came across this classic Marina Rinaldi coat.  A far cry from the plaid kilt I use to hike up in school ( catholic school girls I know you know something about )  this coat is sleek, minimal and it’s also a raincoat. Though trends come and go this coat is a classic and its easily become my go to jacket. But I tell you if the jheri curl ever comes back in style you can count me out (been there done that).

    I literally cackled at that Jheri Curl picture, my mom had hers from the time I was a kid until about 2000 after my friends constantly told her that she needed to come on to the light and stop. Hahaha Anyway that coat is BAD ass!

      LMAO.. The good old Jheri Curl! I had one for years …remember the curl activator? Lawd..Maybe I’ll post a pic of me with my jheri curl…

        DO it! Hahaha, I remember my mom using it in my hair as a kid though, and that wierd spritz sticky feeling of it haha, but I was obsessed with the smell of it. It wasn’t know for it’s scent but I loves it and if i smell it I’m instantly taken back to the 90’s and my mom doing my hair, or hugging my mom and getting that stuff on my dang on forehead when i hugged her.

          So you really want to laugh at me …eh? So many memories, that activator made me look to damn greasy. My mom had a jheri curl too:)
