Check Out My Wolfstooth!

Houndstooth is one of my favorite patterns, perhaps because it is a classic, but at the same time can be made fresh and modern. Lately, I've seen a lot of designers do houndstooth in an array of colors or alter the print to make it more graphic.  Take, for example, J. Crew's playful interpretation on the classic houndtooth pattern with a graphic twist, which they renamed "wolfstooth". I suppose the choice to swap out the "hound" for "wolf" in the name is due to the fact that they enlarged the print for a much fiercer look, although perhaps I am just over-thinking the name!

I have quite a few pieces in houndstooth, including one dress by Kate Spade, but I liked the frills on this J. Crew dress and also the fact that it can easily be worn all year round. For winter, I paired it with a yellow turtleneck underneath, tights and what's now becoming my signature pink coat for a Mod Squad, 60s inspired look. Come spring, I'll probably wear the dress on its own or maybe try it with a light blazer on top. As you can see, the possibilities for the dress are endless! Plus, J. Crew also make pants in this wolfstooth print that I might entertain purchasing when they go on sale.

If you are wondering about the location of these pictures and what the deal is with all of the Lego people, these photos were actually taken on our recent trip to Las Vegas. There is a new park and theater outside of the Monte Carlo. I saw pictures of these Lego art installations in the M Life magazine provided to hotel guests and I thought it would be fun to go find them, which it was. The figures come in a variety of different colors (although I couldn't find the blue one!) and sit in a variety of posses, such as one who is practicing yoga and the one above who looks like he's checking me, or my wolfstooth dress, out!
