Blue polkadots

Sailor inspired clothing is pretty much my favorite of all. And I just adore polkadots. So when I came across this blue dress at a drift store for 2€, I snagged it immediately without even trying it on. Well, when I got back home and did try it on, I felt it was actually too big and looked illfitted on me so I was planning on giving it to a friend. But then today I decided to give it another go. I added a white belt and white 50s shoes and - tada! - it actually doesn't look half bad after all! The dress has a vintage feel to it, even though it is newer than what I would consider vintage. Not too shabby for a 2€ dress. Yes, I do love a bargain, who doesn't!

Here's a couple of photos of me playing around in my aunt's beautiful garden, wearing the sailor inspired blue polkadot dress.

  2. oh, it's darling!! The blue looks so pretty with your red hair. I have a few bargain dresses that aren't very old but "feel" vintage. If it looks fabulous, I say go for it! You look gorgeous. xoxo
