Polka Dot Fun

We are interrupting your regularly scheduled 30 for 30 programming to bring you polka dots for EBEW! Go check out the site to see how everyone else has styled up their different colored and sized polka dots. I'm pretty proud of this thrift store find. It is a lot longer than I normal wear in terms of length but I think it works (plus I don't know how to hem something with a slit). I also ventured into my hallway to break up the montony of my bedroom wall in the past 50 photos :)

I don't want to bore you with my thought process so I will anyway. I really like this belt that I got from the thrift store. It is a Target belt but I only paid like $2 for it. Yay! This skirt has an elastic waist band and while comfortable, I don't think it looks that great. So, I paired it with this bright yellow belt which I think goes great with the teal. I had to pair this with tights since it is still freezing out. I thought, what the hell, wear your polka dot tights! Then I saw my favorite owl with the teal eyes, so I threw that on too. Then I broke the chain taking it off :( Looks like my pliers are going to be busted out.

I will tell you more about in the next post but my eye is freaking out so you get my glasses!

  2. I wore polka dot tights too. I love my tights, but I'm starting to get tired of them.

  3. I hope your chain is repairable.
    You are so right about the yellow against the teal - great combo.

    Thanks for joining us at EBEW today!
