Articles of Interest : Plaid

in the mini series from the podcast 99% Invisible:

I thought this episode was so interesting because it takes you on a rollercoaster:
 from midwest "working clothes" to styles worn by lesbians 
to the origins of the pattern (Scotland) to the slave trade to American culture 
with designers like Ralph Lauren.
They also discussed how banning the traditional clothes of Scotland made them trendy.

Of course I had to break out some plaid (ummm... sorry, tartan according to Scots)

What I Wore: glasses- Bonlook, lips- Ciate Lip Luster "Kiss Me" via Ipsy, necklace- Julie Vos "Coin Charm",  top- Walmart, belt- shop in Alaska during our honeymoon, pants- Gap, sandals- Target

was "The Scottish Register of Tartans" where tartans are recorded for EVERYTHING.
For 70 pounds you could have your tartan registered too!

Here are a few of my quick faves, but there are SO MANY to choose from!

Volkswagon Black Trim (Fashion)

BTW April 6 is National Tartan Day,
mark your calendars and get your tartan ready!

In the mean time, check out the The Scottish Register of Tartans to find some 
tartans that speak to everything you could possible want to associate with.
