Happy Monday!
   Well, just in case you don't already know, HOUNDSTOOTH is IN.
I have always been a fan of this pattern and love the challenge of styling it.
For this post, I mixed old and new. The Motojacket in houndstooth is an oldie from way back. I paired it with a dainty Express skirt with bigger houndstooth patterns in comparison to the jacket -for some contrast.
Fortunately matching identical houndstooth patterns actually work well. Wearing a blazer or jacket with an identical pattern as the Express skirt, minimal jewelry and black or red minimalist sandals would create a polished look.

     Still hesistant about trying this trend? You can incorporate houndstooth in smaller doses such as with a Purse or Clutch or even some statement houndstooth shoes. I personally would love a houndstooth Coat for Fall/ Winter.
What would you opt for?

High Style in Motor City ::Fashion In Detroit

I don't get excited about much but I was certainly excited about attending "Fashion in Detroit" two Saturdays ago. I got the pleasure of going to this amazing Fashion event showcasing an array of local and national designers; including, headliner, Joe Farris -well known for his appearance on Project Runway.

 The ultra chic atmosphere of Motor City Casino's Sound Board provided the perfect backdrop for this elaborate high fashion event. This gorgeous location was later transformed into a huge club for the official FID after-party. This girl can never resist good music and a huge dance floor, so needless to say- I danced the night away. Happy Feet!!!

My gorgeous friend, Momo Hebert was my date for this fashion filled event

Attended by local celebs, bloggers and fashionistas, this event spewed with major hot fashion. Sitting catwalk side, I was completely enthralled by the incredible runway action. Here are some of my favorites of the night:

My Style

Before the event, I sneaked in some photographs for the blog. I have to say the dress was a last minute decision but a non-brainer. I always manage to feel very confident in red. The cut-outs are my favorite features of this dress, and pleats give a cute playful air to the outfit.
