Vintage Polka Dots!

Sometimes the perfect little dress doesn't need much...
That's what we thought when Tanya unearthed this amazing, polka dot number. It's so pretty and the details are so cool that ultimately it didn't need a lot of accessorizing.
Still, at first we thought, "cocktail dress for a spring day!" And we played around with girlish heels, strings of  beads, and colorful scarves...
But in the end, even though we love to accessorize, this dress didn't need it! I mean, look at it! It's so fabulous on it's own.
So we grabbed Tanya's favorite motorcycle boots (that finally came home from a two month hiatus in her little sister's closet).
And Tanya did her signature, roll down, cuffs-out finish on them. Plus we threw in some glamorously red-pink, matte lipstick. (Try it with lip balm and a lipliner only for a velvet-matte finish).
In the end, we realized that a little bit of necessary roughness was all this swingy little number needed to be perfect!

  1. Looks great on you...perfect with the boots. In fact I think it's the boots that really seal the deal for me. Great find!

  2. Thanks! I couldn't agree more! I've had the dress for quite a while and when I threw on the boots it took on new life!
