Two dogs, same dress...

Houndstooth pattern is odd, I think.

It is said that it is also known as "dog´s tooth", which
is a duotone pattern characterized by broken checks.
It originates from the Scottish Lowland 
was used in 1885 by a high end 
clothier in New York.

I still think is is the weirdest pattern ever, but 
as much as I found it odd, the more I become
 friendly with it.
You have to play around with it a little bit and see
what works with it and what doesn´t.
Fact is that it is very "vintag-y", so it needs
some modern elements.

I really like Houndstooth. The name alone is 
an eyecatcher.
The pattern makes you stand out instantly and 
gives you a very unique look, but it still
keeps it´s sophisticated attribute.

It is definitely not for every day nor for 
everyone. As a matter of
fact, I don´t feel like it is very
"Miami" either.
I would love to stroll around in
New York City or Barcelona with this
outfit. It will work there. 

What do you think? Can you see the dog?
