Ralph’s Plaid For The Holiday

Confession:  Every Thanksgiving, I go house to house strictly for food.  Throughout the day on Thanksgiving, I take my appetite on tour.  Friends, relatives, associates, and co-workers…no one is off limits…and there is no tour date I will not honor on Thanksgiving.  Today, the “Thanksgiving Tour” started early with a Thanksgiving Lucheon at my daughter’s school.  Not only did I find this as a time to celebrate the holiday early, but I also saw an opportunity for daddy/daughter dress up…thanks to my good friend “Ralph”:

Vintage Dope

This installment of Vintage Dope is brought to you by yours truely.  Someone said to me once, that the color brown is so 1970s.  My reply was, “So it is…but what’s wrong with the 70s?!?!”

Every piece that make up this look is from a vintage store somewhere in America, except for the grey turtle neck sweater by Banana Republic and the brown Magnanni boots.  Jacket is a purchase from Hong Kong Vintage Clothing in Charlotte, NC.  The vintage Brooks Brothers trousers were purchased at Design Archives Vintage Clothing in Greensboro, NC.
