What I Really Want Is Houndstooth

The classics are always in. We find it with cars. Who wouldn't want this adorable little bug?
We see it with Elizabeth Montgomery's hair style because it's a classic cut. In light of this fact, all I want is a houndstooth jacket to keep me warm this winter. So far all I've found are black, red and gray coats, oh and one lime green. Of course I have not shopped all of the stores yet.
The houndstooth pattern is very much a classic and always fashionable.  I don't want to pay $100 plus dollars for it though.
I won't be buying a love bug this year, but I did find this houndstooth blazer for $5 dollars at a thrift store. I was delighted because it is a well known brand, in good shape and a wool blend.  I love it! The best time to shop for sweaters and jackets  at Goodwill is when it is 90 degrees outside. I had the whole aisle to myself and everything was between $2 and $5 dollars.
While I was wrting this post it occurred to me that I might be weird for liking houndstooth, so I did a search and this is what I found Mizhattan .  Look at those Marie Claire Spain shoes. She  mentioned on her blog that Salvatore Ferragamo's 2011 fall collection includes houndstooth. I'm thrilled.
