I needed an easy outfit for a day of errands. Black cotton GAP dress from a couple of summer ago, got a new life with a raised hem. There's subtle layering, with a vintage lace cami, and a black & white print full skirt, and the outfit gets a boost of warmth with caramel colored leather shoes and accessories. I've been waiting to wear these shoes for months now, they were quite the score: vintage tan leather monk shoes, in MY size! For good measure, I added a matching thin belt and coordinating vintage bag, and zoom, zoom! I'm outta here! Ciao!

P.S. POLKA DOT. Jill the woman behind the blog, Polka Dot Streetstyle from London, is working with American Apparel to showcase a new product from AA fresh from the sweatshop-free factory in L.A. The new product is riding pants, and Madame Polka Dot did a terrific job with a fresh face on the streets of London. The model and the pants look sleek and classy, a bit of a change of pace for AA who seems to like their models tart. I kinda wish they'd use more sweet images like this one:
