Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial. <a href="" rel="nofollow"><img style="display: none" src="" /></a>
Houndstooth is one of the fall/winter wardrobe staple, You can find it everywhere from heels to bags to clothes, hairbands, etc. I am a fan, Its a classic & has stood the test of time, often used in in wovens, silk, tweed, cotton fabrics, its also appearing as prints these days.
You can say: Its the new BLACK
History : Houndstooth originated in Scotland in the 1800s, it was originally worn as an outer garment of woven wool cloth by shepherd

Collage of My favorite looks from past wearing Houndstooth

5 ways to wear Houndstooth: my past looks
1. Create some contrast: Wear it with lace Contrast adds depth to any outfit, be it in fabric, print, etc
2. Play it safe: houndstooth coat with tights
3. Mix some prints
4. Layer it on : Houndstooth pants with silk printed Houndstooth top
5. Layer it with houndtooth silk top underneath Houndstooth coat : future post (will update the link)

You can see how I've worked with same pieces of clothings & layered them or worn as separates & created multiple looks
In the collage above, no. 2 & no. 3, Same houndstooth top with  houndstooth coat & pants, yes I totally believe in reusing my clothes & creating different looks with them with mix & match.
No 1, 2 & middle pic Same coat worn 3 ways
Yes some permutation combination & ta da! for easy understanding of the likes of my husband, maths & stuff

So the point I'm trying to make you can create endless looks with just a few clothes.
Though there is endless inspiration for wearing Houndstooth & celebrity spotting in Houndstooth on internet but I had to include a picture of my favorite none other than Blair Waldorf

Our Lives in the Internet

There was a time when I would never buy something before trying it on at least three times in the fitting room before actually purchasing it, but lets face it, who has all that time in this fast moving world, I did, but now with a toddler on the go, not anymore. Plus with the Internet in our lives, or should I rather say, our lives in the Internet, it saves a lot of time.
What a thought,  I'm totally self obsessed :P!!  "Internet in our lives or is it our lives in the Internet" - Richa. lolz feels good... But Yes its a whole other world, the INTERNET & if you talk about me I am living in this world way more than in the real physical world.
Just think about it, we actually have an address, be it our blog add, FB or twitter handle etc, etc.
We get to interact with people.
We actually have more social life here on the internet than in the real world;
How many times do we actually go & knock at a friend's front door compared to how many times we write on a friend's FB wall;
We even get to shop on the internet, make payment & have our products shipped right to us, no physical contact necessary.
Speaking of, what is your take on the online shopping trend, I am quite into it, I mean I can do window shopping for the entire day without getting tired. You can check for deals, where are you getting the best price, etc, etc, Just sitting in your bedroom, or while travelling, or while relaxing in the bath tub. Oh! but please don't do this in your office, at the workplace. lolz
So, this is a very subjective topic, & one can go on forever on it, & i am not gonna pass any judgement since everything has its pro & cons. What's your take on this. How much has Internet affected your lives, & in a good way or bad?

All art is autobiographical; the PEARL is the oyster's autobiography

Coco Chanel
“A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” 

Lady Sarah Churchill

“I feel undressed if I don't have my pearls on. My pearls are my security blanket.” 

Chinese Proverb

“Pearls lie not on the seashore. If thou desirest one thou must dive for it.” 

Jackie Kennedy

“The pearl is the queen of gems and the gem of queens.”
