NY Tartan Week

So it seems that New York City goes all out for all things Scottish and tartan for one week in April. 
One event is the 'Dressed to Kilt' Fashion Show. Watching last year's highlights makes me want to go. Being Scottish, I don't look twice when I see men dressed in kilts (well, it depends on the man) for proms, weddings, or when the National football team plays, but I suppose it is pretty novel.
Robert (a.k.a. Rabbie) Burns Day is also a week today. Last year I didn't have any tartan suitable for a night out so ended up just wearing a Burberry checked scarf (oops, not very Scottish I know). I might go all theatrical this year reminiscent of Vivienne Westwood (above) or Alexander McQueen (below). Next week, I will post my outfit choice for the day.

Wow! Really nice pictures. I especially like the Alexander McQueen. His shows are always great. Thank you for the nice comment.

Aw thank you both, looks like I might be going to a ceilidh now (really energetic scottish dancing and bagpipe playing etc) so I will post the events of the night. x

Hey! I saw the comment you left on Lulu's blog. I love the lace dress that you two own; I've been dying to get it ever since I saw it. I was wondering if you think it's ever going to be back in stock? Thanks a lot.

What Kat Did said...

Hi Judy, apparently the dress is now in sale so it'' be just your luck if you come across it now unfortunately... Don't think it's on the website anymore. Good luck finding it. There are similar styles elsewhere, I heard New Look had a very similar dress. Kx

Thanks for replying! I'm glad it's back on sale, but I live in the United States so it's no help to me if it's not on the website. :(
