Somewhere around the time I became a pinup I also developed a serious thing for tartan. And plaid. Check. And all the other ways in which you can describe a cosy feeling criss cross of lines in various colours that I do not know the technical difference between yet all make me think of Christmas and log cabins and chopping wood. Those 3 things are things I’m totally down with.
My dream is to own a circle skirt in my 3 favourite tartan colourways: blackwatch green, navy with red, and red. But there’s plenty of temptation out there in the form of dresses too; in many forms, really, and across a wide price range. So for all you plaid and vintage loving dolls out there I thought I’d lay out all the plaid options I’ve come across recently that have had me drooling.
Vivien of Holloway
Vivien is perhaps queen of the tartan. Their circle skirts come in 5 tartan colourways, but they also offer pinafore pencil skirts in 7 tartans too, 3 plaid swagger jackets, aaaand pencil skirts in 8 tartan colourways. Below is just a taste of all VoH has to offer.
Price range: Mid
