Polka Dotted and Spotted

Hello my lovelies!  Today's look is super retro inspired!  I only wish I had some high heeled saddle shoes, it would be perfect.  Somebody needs to make those, seems like something Tommy Hilfiger may do....
I am in love with the dress.  And this above pic, it's my fave.  The dress is the red version of Julia Roberts' Pretty Woman one, isn't it?  I got it at a thrift store a while back (post here) for $6.  Such a find, right?  It didn't come with the matching belt, which was fine by me since I'd rather use a different color to break it up.  I wore my black oxfords to complete the look.  Finally, I wore my hair curly in a very high ponytail to finish the 60s vibe.  I'm totally bringing back the curly bangs, I love how it looks!
I don't know what I'm doing with my right hand here.  
Here's a view of my vintage accessories.  I got the two wooden beaded necklaces at the thrift store for $3.
And my Fendi sunnies, which go so well with the look!
Here are the vintage bracelets I wore as an arm party, you may recognize them from my Bloggers Do It Better Arm Party post, here.

What do you think of my retro inspired look?



  1. That dress is SUPER cute!! I love that you cinched it with a belt! I agree; a pair of high heels would have taken this look over the top.

  2. I love your retro inspired theme look! You look great in red, and the hair really took it to the next level! Also, I think it's better you added your own belt, sometimes the same matching belt gives it no contrast at all!

  3. So gorgeous! I love that second photos as well! You look like a model from the Marshall Fields catalog in 1957! :) Great vintage finds, and I love the hair! P.S. I sent your earrings out today- hope you love them!

  4. Love this look! Anything polka dotted is great in my book :)


  5. Hi pretty! Love the dress and the retro look. You are SO right that oxford pumps would be amazing with that dress. Looking good!

  6. love polka dots! if you put a pair of heels, they'll hire you for the next season of Mad Men!!!! looking gorgeous!!
