Anna Sui's Houndstooth Jacquard Dress
Anna Sui's kickass "Gossip Girl" inspired line for Target includes, alas, houndstooth. I'm on the fence. But I can possibly stomach the houndstooth in this number because I find Sui's opium den stylings such a turn on. The front is awesome with its shades of Japanese Goth Lolita but by the time Sui gets to the back of the dress it looks like the inspired design has exhausted itself. You get a somewhat boxy and dull shoulder and waist akin to a kit Halloween costume and the polyester/rayon material looks like it lacks a bit of class. But it's only $69 bucks!!! I'll take two.
