He couldn't leave the finer life.


It must be the Scottish in me, 'cause Black Watch tartan seems to be working its way into my daily outfits something fierce. I used to wear the skirt above at least once a week last summer because I loved it so much. It hurts to think I've moved on because I still have feelings for it. Clothing really is a love affair.


I thrifted this black watch plaid shirt last week. It's soft as hell and makes me feel like a foxy lumberjack. It's a good feeling.

In other random life news, my Harry Potter kick is still going strong, I love Indian food more than I should and I'm going to see the Pixies at VFest. Once I see Kim Deal actually perform on stage (in the flesh) I will be able to die contentedly.

Wow, thats a great line up at the show you are going to, please tell me you are going to see Grizzly bear too. They are so beautiful. I love soft clothes, I have started choosing my tee shirts at the thrift stores by feeling them. It's a good technique!!

LOL. Clothing IS a love affair! I have a lot of clothes but I tend to stick to only a few because they are my absolute favorites! So I understand your skirt issues. The bottom picture with the plaid shirt...I love that shirt! Normally I would hate that color green..but I am in love this time! I have to check out a thrift store soon because I hated thrift stores but ever since I have been more involved with fashion..I realize a lot of good can come from thrift stores!

I love your plaid items! I found a kilt in my closet a while ago that was from the brand Highland Lassie, I wish I had brought it with me but I guess I can wear it in a year or so. Also lucky you going to see some live music!

Have fun at the fest (:

Cool outfit! Love the shirt, belt, and skirt! Very cute shoes! I love Harry Potter and Indian food is delicious!! :)

Matt said...

yup, how sweet it is to be a foxy lumberjack. I really dig the original red plaid too, but its actually kind of hard to find a decent shirt in that color!

S. Mimi C. said...

Yay, Isabel (: I just gave you an award on my page. Loves.

You are a foxy lumberjack. Ha. Your hair looks really good in the first picture, and I love the plaid. That's totally how I felt about the Depeche Mode concert, and I currently have an excessive love for Trinidadian food.

I love to enlarge your photos and really look at the details. Like the soft knit of that vest, I think I might have missed that otherwise. And the detailing on the belt, that is a really good belt.
If I had a plaid shirt like that, I would be so tempted to try pulling off a 40's look with it, you know, blazer, jeans, red lips, and rolled hair.
Loved your latest comment, btw. It really made me chuckle. xo

I used to have an obsession with plaid. I've mostly gotten over it, but it might flare up again this fall. I love that skirt!

Love the plaid skirt and black vest...

I adore tartan, but it's so hard to find the nice stuff. I did manage to find a big roll of my family's tartan in a market, I'll have to make something from it.
In fact, if you find out which clan you're descended from you can find out which tartan you should tachnically be wearing.
Hooray for the highland lassies :)

jessica said...

i love that pattern, & you definitely own it .

Leah said...

i love both looks! that green is a good color on you

Luka said...

...why didn't I know about VFest when I still had expendable money? >_<

Twobreadsplease said...

You are the sexiest lumberjack i've ever met. Without a doubt. God, i love plaid and God, i'm jealous that you're going to see the pixies. x

Danielle said...

I like the skirt in the first pic. The plaid shirt is sweet too, I like thrifting plaid shirts from the men's section, and then tailoring them to fit me.
