Looking good, there, Pdxfashionpioneer!

Fabulous pic!

Great car and great outfit.

Only gripe is the black wheels. Great on a Ford Model T: naff otherwise.

Love the skirt/hose/heels combo.

Once again, raising the bar!

I can get into and out of 'em easily enough, but it's impossible to put the top down if I'm sitting in one. Sat normally, I gaze happily out over the top of the windscreen. This caused much hilarity in Florida one year when my late ex- and I borrowed her friend's Miata there for a drive to the Kennedy Space Center.

Thank you OldSalt1, Caultron & Ray! Btw, the photo was taken by a professional.

Ginger's black wheels are part of the original 25th Anniversary package that includes the red exterior with a black MX-5 stripe running along the rocker panel, a black retractable hard top, and a black interior with red accent stitching on the seats and a true red insert running across the dashboard. To your point Ray, my gearhead brother doesn't care for black wheels either. I didn't think I would like the red band running across the interior, but it's grown on me!

The silk blouse came from ThredUp and the leather skirt from a resale store. The pumps I bought new, from Payless Shoes. Christian Siriano designed them. My point is you can look like a million bucks for cheap!

I've gotten a fair number of good comments over the years in utility kilts. On of my favorites was a simple "I like your outfit," from a gentleman with a foreign accent. My best guess was that he was from Africa somewhere.

I figure that folks with more exposure to other cultures are far more accepting of more unusual fashion choices.

Another was a guy I met at the airport (another American this time) who got so excited he asked for a picture with me. I agreed, and his wife was kind enough to take it.

The airport guy asked a question that I've gotten multiple times, that always strikes me a bit odd: he asked if I was wearing it for work. Ironically, work is one place I haven't yet worn a kilt.

Both of the above were on actual Utilikilts, but I've gotten short positive comments on my 511 Tactical kilt also. The 511 actually got an inquiry about where I got it, from one of the guys working at the local hardware store.

Me too.

The latest was yesterday (Saturday) when I was out hiking with my club in the woods. I was wearing a 5.11 Tactical woodland camouflage utility kit and a married couple passed me going the other way. The husband remarked, "I almost didn't see you in that camouflage outfit," and I told him, "Well, I like to be one with nature," and then the wife remarked, "Honey, you should get one!"

When this happens I often look at the husband, jerk my elbow with a thumbs-up, wink, and remark, "Hey, she likes it, eh?" but in this case they passed by too quickly. Oh well.

Okay, not my style, but hopefully a new kilt wearer. I don't think I've had quite this situation though. I do remember taking to a lady at an airport who was interested in one for her husband, but didn't seem certain. I told her, "trust me, he'll love it!"

My wife & I were out to dinner last night. The waiter, when bringing the
check, said he like my kilt(black below the knee skirt). He told me he was
a groomsman at his brothers wedding. Being heavy with Scottish ties,
all groomsmen wore the 'Full Rig'. He said the Scots had it right. Cool
and completely comfortable. :D :D :D :D He couldn't wear one at work
as 'jeans' are required, being a Country Western restaurant.

I get a little chuckle every time I cross the term Uncle Al . I have a very good family friend we always called "uncle Al" actually He was US Senator Al Damato. going back a few years.


How are you doing the little clip about having a medical condition almost slipped by. Hope you are feeling OK.

Just had the first ever comment while skirt wearing. Popped to the local supermarket wearing t shirt and 10" mini. Shop assistant said "you look good but its a shame your legs look better than mine" Good comments are definitely king, it really made my day.
