Houndstooth's Fall Abundance
Couture Carrie has collected an impressive scrapbook of the coming autumn blitzkrieg. Houndstooth permutation after houndstooth permutation to shake us to the very foundations of good taste. Above is a Peter Jensen number with an obnoxious yellow and grey houndstooth fighting with Mrs. Claus' red skirt. The girl looks like the village idiot dressed as a thrift store Thracian dancer. And not to dwell on McQueen but she's also included his unreasonable leggings for those who want to look like they have a congenital leg deformity. Putting a pattern like that on legs like those is like scrubbing out the Giaconda's smile with steel wool and turpentine.
