OOTD: Fur +Mustard+ Houndstooth

Good Morning my Curvy Divas,

I attended an open house at an Art Gallery last night with my Mom and we had an AMAZING time.......we viewed some fantastic art pieces by an artist named Jeffrey Yentz...and the live violinist was awesome. I just LOVE going to constructive events especially ones where I can network on a professional level. When you get too  content where you are, you stop striving to reach your greatest potential so I am always trying to reach that next level in my personal and professional life.

I had been dying to wear my Houndstooth trench that I thrifted for 5.00!! I paired it with a basic black dress, mustard colored suede pumps with flower embellishment and a fur clutch (remember I told you guys I was going to get my clutch/handbag game up this year).......I loved the touch of elegance the fur added to the look as well as the pop of color against all the black and white. People were stopping me all night to tell me how much they loved the shoes.....I don't care what anyone says....we dress for ourselves first and foremost but when strangers compliment your attire that's the cherry on top :)











Houndstooth Trench- Thrifted for $5.00/ Black Dress-SuperOld/ Suede Pumps- Bertini/ Fur Clutch- MMC Studio

Here are some of my fave celebs that rocked Houndstooth this Fall:





I definitely didn't want to go the GaGa Route and do "overkill" Houndstooth but hers was definitely fun to look at and true to her personal style. 


What did you think of my look? Have you tried Houndstooth this Fall/Winter yet?


Until Next Time, 
XOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXOXO

    @Dawnya honey there are SOO many times that I go and don't find anything in my size but I just keep going back b/c when I DO find things in my size they have amazing potential at the fraction of the cost of retail stores......I saw a houndstooth Jacket in Burlington for 80.00!!!!! Whaaaaaa?? Noway lollllll My goto stores are ALL of them from GoodWill to Salvation Army to Cosignment Shops to Garage Sales!!! I search high and low for bargains and the best part is no one will have on ur item :)

    @ Daisy thanx sooooo much!!! I LOVE color so much so my signature looks will always have some color somewhere in my look even if it's just my fingernails lollll

    @ Pretty Dark girl I can't wait to see ur look!!

    and thanx GLO!!!!!!!!
