Checking Out Check

Please excuse the awful title (it was either that or "Ooh, 'eck, I love check") - I'll say it time and again but I do hate thinking of blog titles! I've started to realise that a lot of my favourite articles of clothing are done in check fabrics - I love check, I'm mad on plaid, etc.

My last two etsy dresses have both been somewhat check-ish, if not entirely check. Here's a couple of sneak peeks before you get to see me in them!

And, to round off the post, here are a couple of my favourite outfits from blogland this last week or so (also showcasing some great plaid dresses...)

Miss Tami Lee of My Moving Finger Writes. I've admired this lady since I saw her posting at vintagehair on LJ.

And the very lovely Riikka of Harlean's Heyday. She has great style and great taste in practically everything, so it seems! 

I'm also very excited about another dress in a sort of check that starts with 'ging' and ends with 'ham' that I purchased just the other day but you shall all have to wait for more information on that one!

Love,

  1. I love checks and plaid too! Sometimes I wonder if it's my 90's upbringing subconsciously affecting my fashion choices or if I watch too many classic films with plaid dresses. Either way I'm addicted ;-D

    I've said it before, but I'm SO with you on the titling thing. I just scheduled my post for tomorrow, and spent like 30 minutes trying to come up with a title.. when I finally did, I realized it sounded weird so I added a disclaimer about it at the end of my post, to try to explain what it meant lol .. needless to say, it's definitely my least favorite part of blogging!

  3. I love a bit of plaid! I also wanted to say thanks for the vintage etsy store advice you have me a while ago. I finally bit the bullet a little while ago and bought two vintage dresses off etsy. Then last weekend we were in Caloundra and I found another gorgeous one which I posted about on my blog. I think I have officially been bitten by the vintage bug. I really want to buy a whole bunch of vintage so I can wear vintage everday.

  7. Ooh! I do love me some checks too (or plaid or gingham ;). That dress from Adeline's Attic looks so intriguing with the lacing detail!

  9. I am so with you on checks and plaid. In fact I've been wanting to do a plaid post but I'm a little scared, I have a feeling more than half my blouses are plaid. LOL
