Polka Dot Dresses

Recently I have felt an overwhelming desire to have either a red or black polka dot dress. I think it is a result of my general love for polka dots and the excitement of the warm spring weather that is on its way here. I currently have some polka dot dresses in navy blue and white and I have one in black which is more appropriate to be worn to a formal event so I'm looking out for some more dresses particularly in red and white. I have not had any success in finding such a dress at the moment so I decided to look at modcloth, as I often do. I was amazed by the number of inspiring polka dot dresses that I found there. My favourites are probably the red dresses at the bottom and the red and black dress at the top. I just cannot explain how much I love these dresses.

I am really enjoying the warmer weather in Sydney at the moment and like always, at the end of winter, I am desperate for some warmth and the chance to wear my pretty summer dresses. Life seems much better and I feel happier in the warm weather. However last Saturday, which was my only opportunity to take some outfit pictures, it was raining and I was very dissapointed because I haven't been able to make anywhere near as many outfit posts as I would have liked to. One of the reasons for less opportunities to take outfit pictures is because Rydog, who always helps me take photos, has recently got a full time job and I never see him in the day during the week now. Overall I am extremely pleased for him having this job and it means we are working towards our future together which is exciting.

Imogen, my lovely! How are you? I can only share the polkadot love. I would prefer the 3rd one on the 2nd line. Such a classic!

When it comes to weather, oh my, 3/4 of the year its cold on my place. But I can feel comfortable with it too. Matter of habit I guess :D

Hi, my first time on your site I am sure. I love your pics and I love your style.
My advice to you is, time heals every wound, no matter how long it takes. In the mean time, carry on one day at a time. Keep busy, and before you know it, everything will be back to normal. You can take that from an old fool like me.

Hope you will feel better soon.

Have a super day, summer is around the corner.

Colin.

Love these cheerful polka dot dresses. Great choices. I for one am glad you did that personal post sometime ago. If we can help each other a little while enjoying each other's fashion and style that's a worth while thing to do, in my opinion!

Romany said...

Jealous! I'd love some polka-dot-ness in my closet, but as of yet I haven't found anything that's quite right (stripes on the other hand...).
These are so gorgeous. So classic. Will never go out of style...If you like the polka dot dress Katy Perry wore, check out Wheels & Dollbaby. Extravagant price tags, but absolutely gorgeous pieces.

everytime i think about polka-dots i think about mandy moore in Because I Said So (i wonder if you've seen it?). modcloth is torture. they have such amazing pieces. all the time. you're so lucky to have the warmer weather coming your way! i'm not looking forward to the freezing wintertime at all.

Ariella said...

Wow, I love the red and black dress at the top. It looks fantastic and I'm sure it'd look smashing on you. Yay for warmer weather. I know how exciting it is in the spring when you feel things starting to warm up a little and you get excited about using your summer wardrobe :)

I too have a strong obsession with polkadots. I fixed my closet yesterday and a good third had the lovely, lovely dots. Great choice of dresses; I'm really fond of sweetheart necklines.
