daughter's 4th birthday?


I saw it in a shop window by chance when a bus I was on broke down.

It's in her family's tartan.

But cut just right for her summer birthday.

She'd look so lovely in it.

With some little red shoes.

Oooo, the photos!

£40 is a lot of money but I agree that little girls can look cute in tartan. We have one for our DD, no clan connection, just something from Woolies. She looks adorable.

No, DH doesn't own a kilt, but he has hired them to stand in a wedding a couple of times .

The dress is a Mackenzie tartan.

I haven't bought it yet because I need to go at lunch.

I told MIL about it, and she thought I should buy it and use it as DD1's 'Easter dress' as well and she could pose in it in their garden with all the flowers in bloom in the background.

Aw. The colours compliment her big green eyes and parkin coloured hair with gold streaks.

I make excellent shortbread, btw. Yummy scrummy buttery and quite easy to make.

Have you a matching tin for the shortbread?

Kristina, nooooooooooooo...not a quine!!!

I think there's plenty of fashionable folks in Scaberdeen - it's getting almost cosmopolitan! But if we're talking Peterheid or Fraserbrugh, that's another tale altogether.

ScottishThistle · 13/03/2007 20:59

If it's tartan buy it...NOW!

expatinscotland · 13/03/2007 21:47

Just to see her face light up.
