Glitter Grunge: Christmas Plaid, Seattle Style


Glitter + Grunge = keeping it real for the Christmas holidays.
This California girl is freezing her ass off, over here. So thank-you to Gracey for coining the term, and thank-you to Pendleton for providing the plaid. I'm now warm, and ready for a Seattle Christmas. I present to you: GLITTER GRUNGE. 

And, just in time for #BloggersSharingStyle.

Hey, the nineties called: they want their red beanie back.
#SHOPSECONDHANDFIRST: 80% thrifted. 100% 1990s Seattle.

Now Wearing:
  • red beanie, available here
  • vintage 1950s red plaid Pendleton coat
  • obscure band concert Tee, "borrowed" from the boyfriend
  • vintage 1990s maxi skirt
  • fishnet socks
  • Ellie red glitter platform shoes, here
    UPDATE: I am now officially extending the monthly #SHOESHINE to one week. Every 2nd Wednesday of the month, we'll be hosting a shoe link up party, that will be up for one week, so more of you lovelies can participate.  Go Glitterati, and add your holiday faves HERE.

      Ooh like the idea of Glitter Grunge - I call it Casual Glamour but GG sounds more fun. You look fabulous in red! Have a fantastic Seattle Christmas.

      Now that we've figured out that FB and insta (via Webstagram) shots can be linked, well, the party is now a bacchanal! Woot!

      My latest addition to said party is VERY grunge. Perhaps beyond that and into the realm of Bag Lady.

      Merry merry, Happy Happy!

      Val Sparkle said...

      Very cool! I love the coat, and I'm not a huge fan of red plaid. But it's just perfect with the band tee, the hat and the glittery shoes. You've got Seattle in your soul, or in your sole, now!

      Melanie said...

      AWESOME. You set the standard for high-style Seattle glitter grunge. I hope your vibe catches on. You even have a toque! The Dorothy shoes, who would have thought to wear them with this? Really great.

      Ariane Lasalle said...

      You make me sooo happy!! I love the coat, the hat, the skirt, everything!!!!!! Christmas in Seattle? Of course Glitter Grunge!! Grunge never went away as far as I'm concerned. It's part of the wonderful bohemian thread that weaves through every decade and generation. You look amazing, as ALWAYS!!! XXXOOO

      Catching up and loving this!
      Can I just say that if I'm you, I wear red all day, every day. Perfection on you. Not so much on me. Sigh.

      No fear of fashion said...

      OK second Wednesday of the month. I will have to write that down in my agenda. Otherwise I forget.
      I think this glitter grunge plaid thing looks good on you. The beanie too.
