HIGH WAIST AND VINTAGE PLAID/TARTAN...

Hello, hope you are having a good start to your blogging week and if you are not a blogger but do follow along, hope you are having a lovely day.  Did you ever wake up and feel energized and ready to conquer the day with coffee pumping through your system and not too bad of a hair day when all of a sudden, the morning just goes to the toilet?  Well that is how my day started.  I did  manage however to do this shoot on my deck for Ralph Lauren, who called me last night from home and asked me to come up with something sorta equestrian but with vintage plaid.  So here is my shoot....hope he approves.

ok back to reality...Timothy Winter got out this morning and ran under my deck twice.  I was pissed.  I wish that I had a video of  both times.  I had to coax him out with a stalk of the tall ornamental grass and then try to grab him through the lattice that the dogs tore to pieces this past summer.  I was muddy, cold, and p.o.'d but when he saw me on my knees trying to peek under there, he rolled over in the dirt thinking I was trying to play...it just went on and on until he finally gave up and poked his little head out and I grabbed his little nape and brought him back in.  The second time he got out was even more fun...I won't bore you with the details.  This is very time consuming...next time he can find a new home.  You know I don't mean that.  Vintage plaid jacket by Shirley Sobel at The Fashion Boutique Philadelphia, I doubt they are still in business.  My entire outfit is from Goodwill, including my 14kt gold hoops that they let slip by for .99cents.

You look great, love your finds!! That's tartan, although called plaid in the states, it's tartan as the design originated in Scotland..I bet that particular one your wearing has an actual clan name, it's wonderful!! Maybe I will look. But, I love it on you, very smashing petal!! xxooxx
