Houndstooth.

Sunday, November 9, 2014

While I was in school, I was interning at Emerson by Jackie Frasier Swan. Super cool designer, super cool women's fashion. Clothes made for the sophisticated bad ass bitch.One of her favorite prints was hounds-tooth, which for me, wasn't really a pattern I had quite yet taken a liking to. Slowly that changed. Since then, I have yet to find that one pattern of hounds-tooth that I felt suited me. I bought this crop top on a whim, I was on my way to the cashier at Forever 21 and saw this on a shelf that was obviously too high for my 5'3" frame. But desperate times called for desperate measures and I found a way to reach it. The top is absolutely what I was hoping for. The perfect crop fit to wear with any maxi or even high-waisted shorts/skirts. But also a heavy weight fabric so it's perfect for all seasons. (The exposed zipper is also a nice little detail.) I eased myself into the pattern with a simple black skirt. But brace yourselves because now I'm dying to pair it with leopard print or even plaid!
