Houndstooth

QMack Houndstooth Jacket

I came across this QMack houndstooth jacket while I was Christmas shopping in December. I didn’t get it since I was on a mission to find something for my dad. I put it on my mental wish list and told myself to see if it was still available after Christmas. When I went to look for it after the holidays, it was completely gone online. That’s when my regret set in that I hadn’t bought it earlier. I made a trip to the mall last week in search of the perfect work tote. I decided to stop at Macy’s and see if they still had the jacket, and much to my surprise, they did! And it was on major sale for $25!

On that same shopping trip, I also got this Rebecca Minkoff tote. I’ve been trying to find the perfect structured bag for work without any success. I found this one on the Nordstrom website, and immediately knew it was the one for me. It reminded me a lot of my Mini MAC, and I liked that it didn’t seem too serious. Also, the colors are AMAZING. I got the navy, but also love the red, electric blue, and purple versions. I’m actually excited to pack my bag for work every day (it’s the little things in life)! Overall, it was a successful shopping trip. I splurged and I saved, and got two great pieces to add to my closet.

    What a great score on that coat – and I LOVE the tote. I looked at that just now on your link – the nude color would be so great for me for spring! I just got a cognac tote from BR on the 40% off so I’ll have to wait now!

      Thank you! I was in between the blue and nude. What a great steal from BR! Getting a nice purse on sale is the greatest feeling.

    I love this! Nice job scoring the jacket – I’ve played the waiting game too and sometimes it backfires and you end up with nothing but sometimes, it’s the best decision ever. If I go back and it’s gone, I just try to convince myself I didn’t need it in the first place ;) Also, great tote – I love the color!

      Thanks Grace! It really can backfire, which sucks! Convincing yourself you didn’t need it is the best approach!

    SO lucky the waiting game worked out this time, such a great deal for a gorg jacket! Love that you styled it with the yellow, really nice contrast with the houndstooth and the bag. Let me know how you like your RM tote, I got the Dylan a while back but thinking it’s time to re-invest!

      Thanks Rochelle! LOVE the Dylan- it’s a classic! I’m obsessed with mine, so I say get it :)

    The RM bag is SO PERFECT for work. I have one in black and I can’t believe how awesome it works for transition from work to school!

    I love the Rebecca Minkoff bag, it’s perfect for work, and it is so pretty in that blue color. The blue works really well with the houndstooth coat.

    Hi! I’m loving this bag. Is it the medium or large version?

    • Baubles to Bubbles March 7, 2014 at 9:11 pm #

      Thank you Kelli! This is the medium version. I saw the large version in person, and it’s really big!
