Subject: Houndstooth Prints
Since the snow has melted away… I’ve been a bit nostalgic…. I actually miss it… A lot… But I’m so happy I got to have fun in it! Putting together fun looks in such brutal weather can be a challenge, but it’s certainly a challenge I’m up for! I had a ball styling in my houndstooth prints… This season it’s one of the biggest trends, which I find surprising… It’s always been a favorite of mine, I’m just glad everyone is catching on! For me this look gave me the opportunity to be a bit girly, yet Inspector Gadget-ish at the same time!! LOL Yeah I said Inspector Gadget-ish… LOL .. I always think of him and the Inch High Private Eye when I wear houndstooth prints… #ImJustSayin
Here is how I chose to style my Houndstooth prints last week during the crazy winter weather!!!
I’m ready for some fun!!
Houndstooth Coat: ZARA
My love for Zara went through the roof when I spotted this Houndstooth beauty!! It was a no brainer! The price was great and the quality, even better! Zara never disappoints in the style and quality department!! And every fashionista needs a great printed coat in their wardrobe!
I love wearing prints on top of prints… It’s a fun way to be daring, show off your personality, and take a small fashion risk all at the same time. Most people are afraid of prints, so to double them up is like a walk on the wild side. Not really… But you get what I mean! LOL
Purse: United Colors of Benetton (Vintage)
I’ve had this purse since college and it is still one of my favorites!! Don’t be so quick to throw out those old handbags, they may come in handy later on down the line!! This little guy definitely helped to complete my look! I loved the beaded detail. It’s such a timeless, quality piece. It’s without question, one of my favorite little bags. You can definitely hit up your local thrift shops to score classic handbags like this one!
Don’t be afraid to mix and match different bold colors with your black and white houndstooth prints. Don’t always settle for just plain black and white. Now don’t get me wrong, it’s always safer to stick with a black accent piece if you are unsure on what to pair with your cute houndstooth blouse or jacket, but, it’s also okay to pair it with a cute pink skirt, or those awesome red pants you haven’t worn in a while!
It’s the Snow Fairy!!
I just love the winter!
Time to head home!!! The Snow Fairy doesn’t play fair!
I scored this fabulous blouse from Burlington! And yes… I’m Bragging About It! ;-)
I purchased this blouse over a year ago, from one of my favorite discount stores Burlington Coat Factory in Atlanta, GA. I think I might have paid $10.00 for this beauty! For me, it’s all about the quality of the pieces I purchase. I get more compliments on the things I spend less money on, then the things I buy that can be in my opinion, over priced. Remember dolls, it’s all about how you style your looks. Make sure you pair a less expensive item with a more expensive item. It’s great to have a balance! Pairing quality pieces with your $10 finds just makes your look appear more expensive! Quality blazers or bottoms always do the trick!
Pink Platform Pumps: Matiko
I just love these baby pink platform pumps! I love how thick the heel is! It is such a comfortable shoe! I purchased these pretty pumps from my dear friend’s shoe boutique “Peeptoe”! Their selection is awesome and the price point is phenomenal! Even though the store is located in West Bloomfield, MI, all of my Posh and Popular shoe lover dolls can shop with them online!! Score for you!!!
Cobalt Blue Cigarette Pant: Karen Millen
You guys know I love my Karen Millen pieces! I consider all of my Karen Millen items apart of a collection… Yes, I’m a collector of Karen Millen and I’m not ashamed to say it!! These cobalt blue cigarette pants just pulled the look together! The pop of color is always a plus to break up the black and white prints!
Classic look with girly all over it!!
Adding small touches like the pearl headband and earrings keep this look classic and girly! Very Posh and Popular! And you’d never guess I bought this headband for $2 at my local beauty supply store!! I love a great find for an inexpensive price! All Posh and Popular dolls know how to shop on a budget!! Remember, it doesn’t take a million bucks to look it!!
