Black, white, & red all over

My first pair of plaid boots, Kors Michael Kors
Maybe it's growing up in Vermont, maybe it's my Scottish heritage but I adore plaid.  It can be everything from dark and moody to bright and cheerful and brings interest and depth to any otherwise plain outfit.  In looking through my photos from this year, I came across my pictures of Alexander McQueen's exhibit, Savage Beauty, and all the iconic and beautiful tartan ensembles he created.  McQueen producing his own tartan reminded me that ever since Charlotte's dress for the highland fling in Sex and the City, I have wanted a plaid dress in my own family's tartan.

I can't afford McQueen however tartan is the perfect fabric for a festive Christmas ensemble so it seems the perfect time to look for a Scottish inspired Christmas outfit.
