Polka Dot Dreams

There are times when an item of clothing comes into your life and you wonder, 'How have I lived without this?!'. This polka dot dream, designed by Nicolette Mason, for Modcloth, makes me wonder....

If you're a regular reader of my blog you already know about my hysteria for polka dots, vintage and dresses - this dress is everything a girl like me could want! Although I feel it has a classic 50's silhouette, there's something so 80's about it too. The dress is made out of Polyester, while the two (yes, two!) petticoats are made out of Polyester and Nylon, respectively. The dress arrives with the bow initially at the front, but it can also be tied at the back. I personally love the affect of the bow at the front and think it gives the dress a bit of a edge, so that's how I chose to wear it for the photos:
Dress: Nicolette Mason, for Modcloth (currently out of stock, but you can check-out items currently available, here)
Heels: Head over Heels, by Dune^
Shrug: eBay
I once had something semi similar with the difference being that it was a red skirt with white polka dots, but it had the same shimmer and the little petticoat underneath. I lived in that skirt and it was my favourite item of clothing, I literally hated taking it off! Of course as I grew, it became too small for me to wear, and I have secretly mourned my little princess skirt ever since; when Nicolette's collection for Modcloth was launched, this dress was the one I knew I needed as it made me instantly reminisce to my princess skirt - so much so that I was more than willing to swallow the customs charge. Luckily, I have amazing friends and the ever lovely, Marie, offered to ship it over to me, and I'm so grateful. I paired the dress with my surprisingly comfy heels from Dune, previously seen in this post. I finished the look off with a simple shrug as I didn't want anything too bulky or heavy to take focus away from the dress. I seriously love this look as you can tell from how much I'm smiling :)
It just goes to show you can never be too old to dress like a princess! 

'til next time!

Love and hugs,

    1. Haha, it's funny, I was a little worried about the shoes. I didn't want to go black and I'm really happy with how the blue looks with the pink. :) xoxo
