Once upon a time, a bonny lass was in a Scottish ska band. She couldn't just pick one look - punk or princess? So she chose them all...fancy that (I feel like the bonny lass!). Her loot? The Lip, Eye, and Brush Bags from A Tartan Tale, at M·A·C for every girl who wants to arrive at the ball in flawless fashion, with everything she needs in nifty, handsome, heathery tartan modern mash-ups, trimmed in shiny patent. Throw on your favorite tartan frock (knickers optional) and off you go, perfectly ready to raise a ruckus!
Know what a ska band is? I didn't! Ska is a music genre that originated in Jamaica in the late 1950s and was the precursor to reggae. Ska combined elements of Caribbean mento and calypso with American jazz and R&B. It is characterized by a walking bass line accented with rhythms on the upbeat. Who knew? Did you?
This bonny lass bought all three of the brush bags! That's what I do when I can't make up my mind and I'm afraid an item will sell out. Each is priced at $49.50; they are great value sets.
