Ceud mìle fàilte! That means one hundred thousand welcomes in Gaelic/Scottish. Shabby Apple just introduced its new Fall 2013 collection called Tartans and Tweeds. I say, I’m really loving this new collection. I have above some of my most favorite. I like the above outfits the most, because they’d look good alone even without elaborating with accessories and hair, don’t you think? Some dresses need something to compliment it with, but you don’t have to with these. The faux fur, the tweed, the tartan are more than enough to wow you! Check out some more of Shabby Apple’s vintage clothing.

Did you know that the word tartan just means plaid in North America, but in Scottland, plaid means a piece of tartan cloth hung over the shoulder or just a plain bed sheet?  I really like learning about differences in culture, time, and culture through time. Tweed is a material that used to be worn only by the upper class, and now we can enjoy it no matter what stature. Oh, bless equality!

    I checked out this collection yesterday and I love it! I am a little obsessed with plaid this season though I haven’t gotten anything in Plaid yet but I am tempted to! haha
    I love the first dress but I am afraid it’s too hot here in the winter to ever wear that. :(
    Great giveaway too!

    Hi Heidi,

    Yeah, I do wonder if it’s suitable for fall in general. I don’t like my dresses to be too thick either, because there’s always heavy coats for the cold. Indoors during winter can get pretty warm… and of course, depending on where you live, it’s worse. Do you live in Florida/California?
