A houndstooth

So a little while back, I found this dreamy dress. It’s a little Mad Men, it has a great print, and the length is perfect (I like my dresses to be long enough to wear in and out of work). Back in the 90’s, my mom used to have a few houndstooth print things in her closet. I am my mother’s daughter, I love it too. But finding good pieces in the print are hard to come by. So then, to find a coat in the same print as the dress, but slightly different color variation, is nothing short of a wardrobe miracle. The two pieces just had to be worn together right?!

I look like Sherlock Holmes’ daughter right? :) But I think I hit the jackpot with these two.
