Hound of the Baskervilles

Having an optically challenged Autumn?

After a few rounds of Fall fashion, I’m feeling like someone slipped a hallucinogenic drug into my morning Latte.
For me it started with the purchase of Alex McQueen’s $1699 fall tote courtesy of Eddie Curtis (yeah, my shoe guru) at Bergdorf Goodman (800.753-7300—second floor shoes….oh, and they rarely pick up the phone, but you hit the jackpot when they do).

The handbag itself is a variation on his ‘motorcycle’ bag for the season. It features two different off white/black houndstooth prints and black patent leather with gold hardware. Enough said.

Add to that separates from a range including Christian Dior Boutique and the ‘Go’ Collection at Target.

Now, that’s a lot of houndstooth. I don’t suppose you want to add shoes to the mix? If so, there are plenty of options—even McQueen with a few rounds with his extra fabric, but sometimes LESS IS MORE.

Fun as a trend, but don’t invest wads (easier to do at these price points than you might suspect) because it will be painfully dated in about three months. Enjoy.
