I just read today in a high-end fashion mag (I forget which; I read them at the bookstore with a cappuccino) that "polka dots are chic, and color is chic, but colorful polka dots are NOT chic". Whew! I passed the bar!
I love these dots. I don't often go this bold in my dresses, but I felt springy and ready for a change. This dress is by La Cera, a manufacturer of well, muumuu type resort wear. And it's a size Large, not my usual, so it had all kinds of new vibes going for it.
But when I tried it on at the thrift, I just liked it - with a belt, of course, to rein in the roominess. I like the light, airy fabric and the lower neckline, and the sheer sleeves. I tried something outside my zone, and came up a winner. And it was $6, new with tags!
The plain black jacket is a nice basic piece, by Chadwicks (similar, in pretty spring colors). The suede studded belt was picked up at the Humane Society Thrift Store, at the same time as the cool black Impo shooties (they're a little high for me, and needed a lot of extra insoles).
|The dress is a bit short for my comfort, and requires leggings or tights.|
