Back in July, I admired the mix of glen plaid and houndstooth filling the windows at Ferragamo’s 5th Avenue store, especially because I already own a similar look. My pieces are glen plaid, rather than houndstooth, but they have the right vibe.
By August, Lady Gaga was sporting the Ferragamo houndstooth look.
And this Thursday, the trend was covered by the New York Times.
I was pondering the sunglasses when I remembered that I already have vintage checked sunglasses. Again, not houndstooth, but black and white is black and white, as far as I’m concerned. Maybe I’ll try them with my plaid Versace dress.
I walked by the Ferragamo store last week and noticed that the windows had been changed. Only one piece of houndstooth was in the window. Personally, I would have left the houndstooth display up there longer to take advantage of all the interest.
Will you be wearing houndstooth or black-and-white plaid this fall? If you do, send a picture of yourself to me at wbjewelry at hotmail dot com.
