Guastavino || Houndstooth & Subway Tiles with Miss Retro Chic

A little bit french, a little film noir, a little 40's, and a lot of Guastavino tile!

This past spring, french boutique Miss Retro Chic outfitted my warm weather wardrobe with some stunning vintage-inspired clothing, as you might remember.  Now I'm delighted to say they've done the same for my favorite season!  Today's outfit is of a sophisticated black & white color scheme, highlighted by the classic autumnal print, houndstooth.  I styled it with a strong nod to the polished 1940's, but with 50's silhouettes in mind.  Pops of baby blue completed my vision, and the look was just right for the brilliant 1907-placed tiles by Guastavino himself.  This was one of his displays of his aesthetically beautiful "Tile Arch System" invention, as placed on some of the most prominent Beaux-Arts landmarks in NYC.
