Pink Polka Polka

Hi guys,

My love for a polka dot dress has reached embarrassing heights. I look in my wardrobe and there is a beautiful array of polka dot dresses from vintage to modern, and in a healthy choice of colours. This is one of my most recent purchases.

I had been avoiding ModCloth for the longest time because I knew as soon as I had a look at the website, I would want every single dress in sight. I was right! They do the kind of dresses I love: a vintage/ retro flair with a little nerd thrown in – I weep at the awesomeness of this site! I saw two dresses in particular and of course had to order them right away; one was this beauty. Of all the polka dotted dresses I own, a pink one was not among them, so finding this Hell Bunny dress, was a joy.

The fit is incredible around my waist. If you’re a regular reader, you’ll know that I find it so difficult to find dresses to fit my small waist, and usually have to use one of my trusted belts to do the job of finding where my waist is; I had no problem with this dress, which is why I was more than happy to just use the simple black tie belt that came with it. My boobs are a little up and out, but my snood (not pictured) came in handy whenever I felt I was being overly gawped.

A new revelation for me is going out bare legged. Like a lot of plus size women, I tend to wear leggings with almost every dress, but recently, I’ve been feeling good about my little chunky legs and have been happy to venture out while keeping my leggings at home – this was one of those occasions:

Dress: Hell Bunny (via ModCloth)
Cardigan: South (via Very)
Sunglasses: Spitialfields Market

I hope you’re all doing well and I’m really looking forward to reading all your blog posts about Plus North!

Enjoy the rest of your weekend – ‘til next time.

Love and hugs,

ps. Thanks to Soph for taking my pics :)
