houndstooth

Some of you might remember that I posted a picture on Instagram of me trying on a houndstooth coat at Zara back in August. Well, you gave me the final push to make the decision to splurge on it and I ran back to the store a couple of days later. I love houndstooth and apparently others do too, for instance the people at Ligne Rose, who celebrated the 40th anniversary of the Togo seating collection with a special edition upholstered in a houndstooth print fabric by Alcantarra. Do I have to mention that I want want want it? But it is not going to happen, we have two nice sofas and we won't change a thing about them. BUt a girl can dream, right? 

Have a happy weekend! Any fun plans? I have a friend flying in from Germany today and tomorrow our driveway will be poured. I still cannot believe this is finally happening...

  1. I'm so glad you got that coat! I have a swing coat in houndstooth that I adore, it instantly makes anything look so chic. I also have a cropped blazer in houndstooth, too. I could definitely give a good home to that Togo sofa, haha. Have a good weekend with your friend! And such exciting news about the concrete! You must be so relieved. xo

    1. Ha, I feel the same way about my coat, it makes anything look chic. Now it just needs to get cold enough so I can wear it.

    1. Hope you had a great time in Southern Cali. Oh, how I miss living there. My family left over a week ago already but I have a friend from Germany visiting right now.

    1. Oh, vintage wool houndstooth sounds amazing. You should use it for something but I know how hard it is to find the right project.
