Check Me Out

When I was younger, I always loved houndstooth. My mom had this cool houndstooth coat that she would wear to work. My mom was always the epitome of work chic. 20 years later, and houndstooth is still a go to print. Houndstooth for me was synonymous with workwear, but in actuality this print can be edgy and fun. 

Is it me, or when you stare at my dress it looks like the classic arcade game Space Invaders?

This houndstooth dress from Ellos is a great addition to your wardrobe. This dress is definitely classic. A sheath dress in houndstooth is something that you can dress up or down. I wanted to keep it classic but add a slight twist. A little classic, some edge, and just all around fun. I love wearing dresses in the fall. The cooler temps call for some great booties, and jacket. I was in need of new pair of Chelsea boots, and when I saw these on the site they were added to my cart immediately. Finding a good pair of booties is vital for me in NYC. I need a pair that are not only comfortable, but can handle walking around in these streets. These are 100% leather, and I love them. 

With such a classic dress, I decided to keep it going with the classics, and pair it with a moto jacket. This is my oldie but goodie from the Who What Wear Collection. For $40 this jacket has been a great addition to my closet. I wear it all the time, and with it being cropped it works with everything. My Rebecca Minkoff Quilted Affair came along for the ride and completed my look. All that was left was a high pony and a purplish black lippie. I love mixing things up and it's easy to do so when you have versatile pieces that can be dressed up or down. How do you switch up your classic pieces?
