Mad for Plaids: More New Orleans dressing room photos

It was pretty cold while I was down south. With highs in the 50s and lows in the 30s, it barely felt like a break from the bitter cold of SWPA. And in my silliness, I actually thought I might get to swim in the unheated pool at the W New Orleans, where I stayed.
View from my room on the 22nd floor. I could see the casino, the Mississippi River, and the World Trade Center.
The sun made everything more bearable, at least. And compared to 2+feet of snow and highs in the high 20s, 50 did feel almost tropical. 

But spring fashions were ubiquitous on racks of boutiques and local outposts of familiar shopping haunts. I did manage to find a few warmer flannel options to layer for when I'd return to Pittsburgh.
This dress is a size medium and it was snug around my hips and thighs. I didn't buy it but I really liked the dark colors. 
This blue flannel dress had a flattering shape and was marked down to $19.99. I took a medium and have worn it many times since!
I also bought this foofy lace skirt from Urban Outfitters sale section and have worn it a few times already. If I wear it with too much black it can look a little more goth and witchy than I want. So I try to soften it with colored tights or a lighter cardigan.
