Red and polka dots









Blazer: Sears
Dress: Thrifted
Belt: Old Navy
Shoes: SM NewYork (Sears)

One of my very favorite dresses!  Not only was it cheap at the thrift store, it has polka dots, is super swingy and fits me perfectly.  It can be hard to find dresses that fit if you have a large chest, hips and a waist, most of the time I have to do small adjustments to get a decent fit.  But not on this baby.  I zipped it up and wowza!  Perfect. Fit.  And of course leopard print is a perfect match for a red blazer and polka dots.  

Look!  Pavement!  Freed from the chilly grasp of the snow!

In other news, it's long past time for a visit to the hairdresser.  My poor bangs have had enough of me hacking away at them.

    1. Thank you, you are too sweet! It really does make a difference when they fit well, my sewing skills are pretty limited so it's nice when I dont have to do anything.

  8. Yay for finding a dress that doesn't need alterations! You're right it fits you perfectly and is very flattering on your curves if I might add. Are you going to keep the bangs or grow them out? In the first picture they look like blunt bangs and I quite like that!

    1. Thank you, that's so sweet of you to say! I was thinking of growing my bangs out for awhile, since they grow so fast, but blunt, thick bangs are my very favorite. (And always better when a professional does it, instead of myself.)
