    i do own a lava-lava. its a sheet thin material. in a tropical color, that is sewn together. and you wear it like a towel. you roll the waist down. its a traditional type of clothing for one of the small islands. a friend sent me one.. iv worn it on really hot days. mail lady gave me a wtf look. heh. iv not been brave enough to wear it o the grocery store. but i probably should not be. since most women just show up in what they woke up in ( if its a weekend, or early morning anyhow).. so i doubt they judge me for wearing a sheet, err i mean a lava-lava.

    If it isn't you have no excuse at all. It's a skirt.

    Probably go nice with your chiffon blouse and kitten heel court shoes...:D

    I strongly suspect that come the day you will be sporting the appropriate attire for the day. In fact you will look sorely out of place if you don't.
    Embrace it and wear it with pride.

    My great granddad was an Argyll and Sutherland Highlander. I have three that I wear every chance I get. I know the modern kilt is an English design but it's what he wore during the war and it does stir the blood and make me very proud of my family.

    Fair enough but if I can't trace my ancestry to a certain family or clan then I would just have to guess on which tartan pattern/colours to choose.

    Pick anything you like if you're comfortable wearing a skirt. 'Clan' tartans were mostly invented by Sir Walter Scott and his fans in the 19th century.

    They don't go all the way back to Macbeth and William Wallace.

    I don't know Scottish traditions, that wouldn't be considered improper?

    In which case be yourself and wear an appropriate (morning?) suit and leave the kilt to the 'Scots'.

    I've worn it around town a few times but need to do it more often. They're not cheap :)
