polka dots & rosebud

I believe I could wear polka dots everyday of the week. I have enough outfits and accessories to do so. Trust me on this. I guess I'm dotty for dots. Here's one fine example: the most comfortable cotton dress that I bought a few years back from Forever 21. It's been tweaked a bit, as I had decided I liked it better without a collar, and I've layered it with a polka dotted slip dress beneath it. Also added to the mix, a polka-dot sash, polka dot socks and for good measure, a lovely polka-dot print purse that my mama gave me. This outfit got me through my lunch date at Burgers & Brews with my sweet-heart,  a few afternoon errands, and onto my evening where I walked the crowded streets downtown for Sacramento's Art Second Saturday with the BFF. I don't think there's an outfit that's easier to wear than this.

Ooooooh I love the ring! And your craftiness! I wonder what the dress looked like with the collar?

You are so rad for crediting me for those shoes. Thanksgiving '05. Back in da day!

Ps I think this is my favorite outfit you've posted so far. The belt pulls it all together so well! And way to exactly match the dress and sock pattern, it so works!
