    The Ultimate Houndstooth Dress

    One print/pattern that I’m absolutely drawn to this season is houndstooth.  Yes!!  This modern-classic print has been seen in various fashion editorials as well as on FW 2014 runways including Balmain, Michael Kors and Stella McCartney.  And now I’m happy to incorporate the trend as part of my wardrobe this fall.  Thanks to emploi New York!

    If you love classy yet comfortable dresses, then you will really appreciate this Jones Dress featuring a chic black-and-white houndstooth pattern.  The fit is close to perfection!  Its stretchy material is ultra comfortable while hugging your figure in all the right places.  The knee-length skirt and the three-quarter sleeves are truly flattering.

    A woman stopped me to compliment me on the dress in the middle of the street.  A girl never tires of outfit compliments (at least not me!).  Do we?

    Jones Dress – Houndstooth Black/White

    I had such a blast strolling in this dress.  I styled mine with nude platform pumps (similar), black quilted satchel, tortoise sunglasses and chain link bracelet.  On chilly days, I will change the look by wearing the dress with a wide belt and a pair of knee-high boots (love these!).  Oh, and a cozy coat to top it all.

    What a versatile, all-season dress to wear to the office.  Style it with a blazer and neutral heels during the week, and simply slip on a pair of flats running errands when the weekend comes.

    Two more elegant dresses in oh-so-flattering colors and silhouettes – Lexington Long Dress (grey) & Maiden Dress (wine).  Be sure to check the size guide provided for each dress when ordering online.  I had to go down a size in order to get a better fit.

    Acrylic Desktop Accessories

    As a full-time blogger/writer, it’s important for me to have an inspiring workspace.  An inspiring working environment to me is simply an uncluttered, neat & quiet place to sit along with a few essentials at my disposal.  And yes, an outdoor view is a must.  The right surroundings encourages work efficiency as well as creativity.

    desk decor

    Some of the must-haves by my laptop are a cup of jasmine green tea, aromatic things like candles and rosemary, iPhone, notebooks and a stack of magazines.  I also added these two accessories to brighten up my black desk – Monogrammed Acrylic Pencil Cup & Kate Spade Acrylic Stapler.  Clear acrylic & gold screamed to be paired together!

    Both of the items are from Design Darling, the online boutique & life style blog ran by Mackenzie Horan.  Check her NYC apartment to see more of her dazzling decor style.

    I used the pencil cup as a floral vase instead.  You can use this versatile acrylic container however you wish!  The stapler is proudly displaying on top of my mags unlike the ugly stapler that I hid inside the drawer prior.


    A little change can enhance your working mood whether a fresh candle, flowers or small desk accessories.  When things are pleasing to the eye, they sure are good for the mind!  Take a look at this collection of ever-inspiring workspaces from chic home offices to outdoor studios.
