Ahhhh, it's finally cooling down in Northern California, so I'm layering a bit, Under my 1950's polka dot print cotton dress, I'm wearing cuffed jeans for a little rockabilly flair. The dress is a dream, but unfortunately, one of the sleeves tore (the price of wearing old fabric, it's very fragile at times) so I just made the dress sleeveless with a pair of pinking shears. My favorite polkadot rectangular scarf, which often serves as a belt, matches PERFECTLY with this dress. All that's needed is a few random button pins, my shades and some animal print slip ons, and it's time to run some errands around town.
If you think about it, polka dots are sort of the urban animal print. A zebra, cheetah or panda may wear its dots and stripes for camouflage in the wilderness, and is that not what we do in our civilized dots? Look how well I blend into the dappled shade with my polka dots. Urban camouflage.
