Houndstooth Heaven

I remember when this classic Houndstooth-printed Michael Kors handbag first was released, I wasn't exactly keen on it until I saw my girlfriend Mette with it on her arm.  It's one of those prints I feel like you have to see in person to decide whether or not it's something for you or not.

Houndstooth, to me, is a classic, classic print but often, when re-done I feel it can look tacky :/  My white MK jet set bag is in desperate need of a good cleaning (although I've made multiple valiant attempts, it is getting old and might need a professional hand) and as much as I can't live without my black MK Selma bag, it's just not as spacious as the Jet-Set model when it comes to travel.  I've been lusting after a black and white tote that's more practical for fitting all of my travel necessities (laptop included) since I'm not as keen on usual my white handbag in its current state and have sufficed with cramming everything into my Selma instead for far too long.  

After having surfed the web for the perfect new addition, I found myself coming back to this sold-out model and the more I looked at it, the more I fell in love.  It is indeed the proper houndstooth pattern I desired rather than a too-modernised take on it that I feared wouldn't exude the timelessness the original pattern would.  What I love about it as well is that it has got a bit of funk to it and can uplift any basic outfit into a look with a bit more edge with the right kind of styling.

I managed to find a brand new one off of my beloved E-bay and as cringe-worthy as the price was, given that they're no longer in production and that it came from The States, once I unwrapped this baby, near-tears, I decided it was worth it (even with the obscene import tax I had to pay on top of it all as well).  Although pricier than I'd budgeted and expected, I'm head-over-heels for this new handbag.
