COLOR BLOCK AND HOUNDSTOOTH

Ladies let me tell you how much I adore this vintage color block jacket! I found it at a local vintage store for $9. You read that correctly....$9!!!! Generally color blocking looks best when using solid colors but I thought it would be fun to change it up a bit. I paired the jacket with my cowl neck houndstooth dress that I got from Lane Bryant a while back. I have always been a lover of houndstooth and have several items in the print. Funny to me how it is suddenly such a popular print. The fact is, this has forever been a staple print in any classy lady's wardrobe. The boots are by Sofft.  


I'm off to see the midnight viewing of Breaking Dawn with Chastity of The Curvy Girl's Guide to Style. I will try and get some pics but I can't promise anything as it will be after midnight and I will probably be a walking Zombie since I worked all day! haha


With Love,
Kiah
p.s. Are there any other Twilight lovers out there? 
p.p.s. I promise these "hair blowing in the wind" pics have not been on purpose. It seems that every time I go out to take pics lately it has been so windy.
