MK's mad for plaid...are we?


MK is creating her own grungy style by stealing old ideas from the early 90s and mixing it with her favorite contemporary pieces. A lot of people are screaming that she is the worst ever for even daring to wear a flannel shirt wrapped around her waist because she is "so obviously the complete opposite of what grunge stood for!" I think it's just comfortable and cute. And her obsessions never last that long anyway. I can understand the appeal I mean when I was 9 I thought Angela Chase was the epitome of style.

Totally obsessed with these shoes btw. If you know who they're by and where I can get a similar pair at a significantly lower price point that MK's that would be awesome!
Anyway...
I think it has more to do with finding a modern comfortable style than it does with trying to be "grunge" on MK's part. I also think, as I was saying, that her style obsessions are intense and whole hearted but fairly quick. In six months she'll be on to something down a completely path. But that's part of why I find her so inspiring-she evolves and yet is still always herself.
MK loves plaid so much that a few months ago she hosted a birthday party for her friend with a plaid theme. Yep, all the guests were wearing plaid and I bet there was even a plaid cake. <span class= <span class=
I'm also obsessed with MK's Alice-in-Wonderland-esque hair band-bow-thing!

Is that hair bow just a piece of fabric tied perfectly around her head? it's lovely!

Those shoes are from Azzedine Alaia they are the Whips flat gladiator boot and they are a pretty penny.

I bought some like it that are J.C. off the U.O. website.
