Did you know (you might of know this already) that there is an actual day called “Plaidurday” on October 3rd that is a worldwide celebration of all things….PLAID!!! Yes friends, the world is a wonderful place.
Now clearly it”s not October 3rd anymore but that does not mean you can’t celebrate Plaidurday on a non official day 🙂 And that is what I’m going to do with some friends from the Toronto Vintage Society tonight to celebrate the originator of TVS, Birthday-Jacquie!
Now to get my mind ready for all things plaid I have been looking for lots of vintage plaid inspiration online and boy there are tons. Shall we see what I found?
Vintage “Plaid” Advertising & Images
Pendleton is the ultimate “Plaid” clothing line as seen in these 3 ads below.
While not an outfit this blanket is still a Pendleton and looks super cozy. I’m a bit confused on the “Robe-in-a-Bag” tagline though, does this not look like a blanket and not a robe in the traditional sense?
1944 Teen girl wearing blue jeans and of course PLAID! Does she not look fantastic? Everything about this relaxed outfit is pretty cool (minus the smoking part, but that is the time). I really like the radio as well, that is on my wish list when I have a bigger home.
Every Teen Girls Dream in 1947-The “Scot-Trot”
1940s Teen Girls in wool, plaid skirts and saddle shoes. This might be the look I end up channeling for the party. Can I just say how much I LOVE this photo!
The plaid dress in this 1940s vintage image is beautiful and the ladies are equally stunning. Fantastic photo!
What stylish 1950s ladies, I must say.
Don’t worry men, there is lots of plaid to go around, even when you go swimming.
Or when your just hanging out, like these McGregor ads show.
I cannot have a post on plaid without mentioning-Scotch Tape, the king of plaid packaging!
How about a Plaid Fridge?? Yes a Plaid Fridge! Wow that is a lot of plaid in one area, if I do say so myself.
Plaid For Sale
I adore this red plaid shirtdress from the late 40’s possibly early 1950s. So liz!
I love yellow plaids, I think they are very classy.
If this skirt was in my size I would 100% be buying this lovely 1940s plaid ruffled skirt.
The below 1940s wool jacket looks very much like the one the pretty teen was wearing in the picture I posted earlier.
For the gentlemen in your life (or maybe yourself)- A plaid tie from the 1930s. Isn’t it marvelous?
Just in time for the Holiday season, these adorable Christmas Bow Earrings. Ohhh I want them 🙂
A pretty plaid scarf will cheer up any outfit.
It made be cold in Toronto but that does not mean you can’t start thinking “warm vacation” in this adorable 1950s plaid swimsuit! Maybe you could convince your significant other to wear the plaid men’s swimsuit shown earlier?
Lastly to end this post I wanted to share a wonderful photo of my husband and our new Tailor friend Mister Xe we met while in Hoi An in Vietnam in 2013. Aren’t they a cute pair?! hehehe
Do you love plaid as much as the Vintage Inn? Or is it a pattern you stay away from?
