I'm excited about the potential of both dark red and plaid this fall, because I've loved them in past years.

I don't currently have a plaid shirt, so I stole Mr. Rabbit's to try this out (but he's very fond of it and it's a little big here---although over leather-look leggings sometime maybe a good length? hmmm....).

So here's a few 'experiments', and I'm currently in search of my own hunter green/navy or red/black plaid top.

1) A bombshell-ish chiffon dress that doesn't get out much. I tried many toppers (including pullovers) and shoes, but it's a little awkward because of the empire waist.

2) testing with Mr. Rabbit's shirt as a placeholder (which is a little too big). Although I liked the idea of black booties with bare legs, I'm not sure about it here as it's pretty stark, I might like it with a lighter colored top though. Should I go with dark tights? the heels in #4?

3) wearing my Grandpa's clan tartan scarf, and trying a trench and leather jacket.

4) an orphaned zipper skirt that I like a lot, but needs tucked or cropped tops with structure to work (I liked the skirt/shoes with a short sleeve crisp coral button up as well.)

All feedback welcome! I appreciate all thoughts about tweaks and potential improvements before I wear them out of the house.
