The search for black watch tartan was one that spanned two years and had been, until recently, a fruitless one. I finally gave up my search for something new and ordered a vintage Pendleton from eBay when, rather serendipitously, a print and a fabric I really liked surfaced at Banana Republic (I then proceeded to buy both the blazer and pant).

The rule of three would suggest that this is an inherently pleasant coincidence but somehow I feel my closet, if it could speak, would beg to differ.

FYI (for the four of you who check everyday), the lineup for the next two weeks comprises year end compilations and a few holiday party looks with some reviews sprinkled in. 

Happy holidays, everyone! I wish you all safe travels, plentiful presents, quality family time, and hearty meals.
