A girl in in group chat said something along the lines of ‘ I don’t think plaid can be fashion’, I definitely disagreed and the conversation steered elsewhere for a while. Plaid and tartan consistently over my years being alive, have come and gone, when I was a toddler it was all red tartan, from skirts to peter pan collars, to the lining on trenchcoats. I am not just talking me, even though I did love my little red plaid skirt.

Mid to late 70’s again it reared up and was in more muted tones this time, plaid and tartan prints on greys and navy’s. Dress pants and mid length skirts, definitely crossing over into an older and more mature dressed look. Back and forth it goes, again rising up mid 80’s with the Punk/Rude looks with black bomber jackets , shaved heads and red plaid pants or skirts. Both the men and the women this time.

I wore blue tartan all through highschool, and in Australia where we wear uniforms, plaid and tartan is everywhere in our school system.

I had plaid/tartan stockings in the 90’s, and the burberry look came back in full swing in the end of the 90’s and begining of the naughties. Suddenly there was Burberry and Plaid, with mixes of different tartans all over the place, from luggage to purses – loves my Burberry purse – to scarfs , hats, and clothing. My purse is real, my scarfs are just regular but so adorable in baby pinks and blues.

Even this time of the year is Tartan filled, from ribbons and decorations, to traditional clothing that brings Christmas and well wishes to all, it is not just Fashion it is the return of an old friend. Whether you wear vintage or new, plaid and tartan will always be what you want it to be…a hint of it, or a full covering, it takes a definite flair to carry it off well. Don’t go overboard of course, but “Own it ” if you are going to bother.

I was cleaning up some folders and came across some items I hadn’t blogged until today, the hat/hair dreads are just wicked cool, I love not only the cowboy hat with the skully of doom lol, but the dreads give it a whole different dimension. Also different are these wicked cool boots, the ones with the ring between heel and base of the boot, now of course in RL I would fall over and break a limb in these, but in SL I danced away some hours this morning while Maht was doing his 26 hours for Charity.

Second pair of boots are from the Footwear Expo and they are so cute, they remind me of wellies but with heels, which is kind of a funny thing in my house, everytime my Mum returns from the UK she brings back Wellies, yet we do not have the weather or a farm. Mind you the most recent pair were bright red, so I can’t say I blame her, and these boots remind me of that look, so for winter and snow these are definitely the go, and with the colour change hud, so much fun.

Tickle my Ivory’s

Ivory1
Ivory2

I am really delighted in the New Ivory skins, there is something incredibly beautiful about being this pale, but with such a divine porcelain like quality. The Ivory skins come with soft make up that just accentuates the concept of the skins. I have always veered back and forth into silvery hair, going white often as my choice for fantasy play.

If you wear a lot of black hair, for the most part you will have a considerable amount of white to silvery/grey styles as well, what with it being so popular to make them a pack together in many hair stores. Todays silvery delights are both from House of Heart , they have a definite softness to the texture that really works as a bealievable mix with the brows of the Hope Ivory by Tuli.

The first outfit I put together comprises of the Margo coat, this had myself and Newdoll zooming over to LeeZu as soon as the notice came through, I swanned around in this for a day and a half, and am so glad especially now that I opted for the silver. Everyone in the world needs ruffle panties, and my favourite are the ones Kit Maitland made years ago, that actually have ruffle prims…but a few months back when shopping for a skirt for Meko we went via Katat0nik and I just couldn’t resist these panties with the ruffle as a texture, perfect for a look like this one where you couldn’t wear prims as well.

Yes I do realise that I am wearing panties and a jacket as an outfit, but if it can be done anywhere it is here in Second Life. The dress I am wearing in the second picture comes with that adorable pillbox hat. So perfect for the skins make up I actually modded the hair to remove the large net bow it had, Yay for select linked parts and shrinking and alpha textures….that way if you cannot rez the hair to mod you can just hide what you don’t want…don’t do so without making a back up copy first.

The dress itself is by Prelude and is the Estelle dress, this comes in a myriad of colours, but in keeping with my theme the silver was perfect. I had the pleasure of meeting with the designer Polaire and her good friend Angelli at The Deck one day, they are such delightful ladies, it really was a great afternoon/evening chatting with them both. Angelli has her own teen themed blog which she only recently started HERE .

This dress is so stylish and elegant with it’s vintage lines and classicly beautiful fabric. We all know I love system skirts/dresses, and this is truly a marvelous one.
