Joe & Tell

If there’s one trend that seems to come back each Fall and Winter, it’s plaid. But plaid has a cousin and that cousin is buffalo check!  What’s not to love about either pattern when it shows so well in red and black?

So, here is my version of the classic show and tell using the items from Joe Fresh (Superstore or Loblaws).  They are completed stocked full with options (let’s call it updated plaid) and here is what I found in store last week:

These adorable slip on booties/slippers for babies and toddlers.  How cute!


This dress would look great with black tights or leggings and booties, wouldn’t it?


And if you didn’t wan to wear red and black plaid, you could carry it!


This bomber style jacket would be a fun way to add a little colour and style while keeping warm.


Lastly, these duck boots were under $50 and were very warm and comfortable.  I probably wouldn’t wear them in the rain, but they would be great for cold weather.

I have to admit I didn’t buy a thing!  But I could always go back for that tote and maybe the dress…and….more!

    Okay, so a red and black plaid is called Buffalo Check? And why is that? I am just curious. Haha, enjoy your Thanksgiving!

      Hi! Buffalo check is a style of plaid that is usually made up of red and black or black and white – think large stripes / checkerboard pattern. It has been around since the 1800s and was frequently worn by lumberjacks. It’s definitely a casual but classic pattern that is fun to wear!

      I just might do that especially being Black Friday & all 🙂

    I love buffalo plaid! I really like that t-shirt dress, it looks like it’d be fun to layer!

    Hi, was Googling those boots and ran across your post. Did you try them and and were they true to size? Thanks!

    • Colleen January 1, 2017 / 10:43 am

      Happy New Year! Yes, I did try them on and found they were TTS. My new Sorel boots are a size 8 and I usually wear a 7.5 or 8 in boots. I found the size 8 was a good fit for me. Good Luck!
