14 Oct Target Plaid Flannel Dress with Combat Boots
I hope you enjoyed a great weekend. Ours was low key, and we enjoyed the Harvest Festival in our town. Today I am bringing you another look from Target’s Universal Threads line.
Target Plaid and The Grunge Era
There is a fair amount going on in October, and if you missed my Friday’s post, read about October Favorites Here. I was browsing the Target website, looking for seasonal candles, when I came across this olive/black flannel dress. I love the colors and the style of this cozy dress. The dress is a wrap style and is longer in the back that front, but still a nice length. The flannel is soft, and my husband made it known how much he liked this dress on me. He was excited, as we could both wear flannels and I wouldn’t have to steal any of these flannel shirts to get cozy. Plus, this is more my style.
Combat boots are showing this season, and I have had these Sofft boots for many years. They are one of my favorite pairs! The brand is known for its comfort. I just saw plaid and thought combat boots!
If it were colder out, I might pair this with a moto jacket. I have a collection in other colors besides black. In addition, I would have added some fun fishnet stockings to complete the look. Fashion should always be a fun expression of one’s self and show the mood you might be experiencing that day. I am a firm believer that you should wear what you want!
This outfit has a “Grunge-vibe” to it, which got me thinking about all of the 90’s Grunge music I used to teach on guitar when I worked at a studio in Pittsburgh. It was the era of Smashing Pumpkins, Foo Fighters, and Nirvana. How many times did I teach, “Smells Like Teen Spirit?”
“Grunge (sometimes referred to as the Seattle sound) is a rock music genre and subculture that emerged during the mid-1980s in the U.S. state of Washington, particularly in Seattle and nearby towns. The early grunge movement revolved around Seattle’s independent record label Sub Pop and the region’s underground music scene”. ** wikipedia.
Grunge melded together punk and metal with electric guitar distortion and dark themes.
One of my favorite tunes, written by David Bowie, “The Man Who Saved the World” was also made popular by Kurt Cobain of Nirvana. I’ll share it on Youtube at the end of this post.
Dark plaids just remind me of a time where waffle knit tops were layered under open flannels and worn by girls and guys.
I even went with another dark shade on my nails, with Opi’s Black Onyx. I love dark greens, blacks, greys and dark reds for Fall.
I have had these black fillagree earrings for years. Vintage from Etsy.
