Linda was incredibly creative with ideas, reasonable with pricing, patient with an undecisive me, and receptive to my humble opinions. I highly recommend checking out her blog for the link to her etsy shop. This is the photo she used to draw a paper doll me in my header:

I have to say that I've preferred plaid/tartan throughout much of my life, as I grew up with a posse of prep-tastic amigas, so this felt like a rendition from 8th grade, minus the Bass pennyloafers polished to an obnoxious level of shine. I guess fashion is cyclical, but I really would prefer not to see Hypercolor shirts come back, thanks.
Lastly, I have a tiny worry I may have ripped off my look from her today:
Plaid is so hard to get right, no matter how much of it may hang on one's closet.
