Borrow from the boys.





"Mens sized ESPRIT plaid shirt, D&G red belt, Nine West black pumps, Ralph Lauren shades, black leggings and charcoal tank top"

This is my take on the whole plaid shirt bit we've been seeing for a while. Instead of buying a new one, grab a piece from a gracious male counterpart a.k.a boyfriend, brother, friend or dad. Glam it up until only a hint of that masculine Paul Bunyan (mythical lumberjack who appears in American folklore) look remains. By cinching the shirt with a matching colored belt, (to define your waist) turn the top into a mini! With an ensemble of dramatic heels, makeup and hair (à la Amy Winehouse), even an old plaid shirt could be dressed up.

Only someone with legs like yours could pull off leggings as pants but you look FABULOUS!!! And those shoes are amazing :)

And how in the world do you get your hair to do that? Seriously. I am having a major hair crush right now!

Great outfit, Farrah. I did the same thing with my boyfriend's dress shirt back in May. It's a great look; very fun and easy. The belt gives it more of a define look, and you look fabulous! Hope you're enjoying the weekend.

of course your shoes are nine west - perfection!

Such a good idea. I will soon raid my hubby's closet for some plaid finds! =)

Farrah - those skinny jeans fit you perfectly! I share your woes on finding THE perfect jeans. I'm middle heavy so anything that fits me around the waist is always too lose on the thighs. Sigh.
