Yes, this post was inspired by the fact that J.Crew’s tartan holiday shoes are finally here — they WILL sell out, if past years are any indication — and by the related fact that J.Crew is selling a truly sociopathic amount of plaid items, all of which I want for myself. (I also just spent a lot of time talking myself out of buying a plaid duvet cover. It’s not like I get to leave my home! It seems so cheerful! Someone enable/stop me!) Someone should write an explainer about why plaid feels like a Holiday Fabric, but until they do, I’m just going to announce that plaid is a Holiday Fabric and bring you this widget o’ good cheer:

YES, there is something for your dog in there.

FYI: GFY always uses affiliate links where available, which means we get a tiny bonus if you get yourself something new. I can assure you that all items were personally chosen by me while I sat around drinking cheap wine and watching The Great Pottern Throw-Down.
