What I'm Wearing: 50s Housewife Meets Mod

Hello, I'm your average Stepford wife meets go-go dancer. I had so many random thoughts about this outfit as I was wearing today, I can't even think of them all at the moment. I almost talked myself into thinking this was not a cute outfit - but who am I kidding? I am totally working it. Though I did feel a bit like a Dallas Cheerleader with the flowy sleeves and the white boots. All I was missing was the rocking body and huge boobs.

See the picture below and tell me I am not dreaming that my sleeves and boots combo resembles that.
Anyhow, I love polka dots and was extremely happy to find that top at the Goodwill for three dollars. It pairs beautifully with the red skirt. I just added a simple pair of earrings as each piece I was wearing makes as statement of its own.

Polka dot top and Red Skirt

Is this a look you would wear?


  1. It's a nice spin on the classic red, black, and white! I really think the boots make the polka dots ever more fun and playful!!


  2. I'm digging the boots. Not gonna lie. I am also now reminiscing of how much I loved watching "Dallas Cowboys Cheerleaders:Making the Cut."

  3. Oh my goodness! I honestly think that this may be my favorite look of yours yet. Those boots are simply gorgeous! PERFECT!


  4. Great boots - they are just fabulous!


  5. This looks fabulous! Polka dots and red go together like peanut butter and jelly!

  6. There's nothing quite like a navy polka dot top and a red skirt. Just gorgeous. And you look amazing in those killer boots.

  7. honestly, i wouldn't wear this look, but i love the skirt!

  8. This is such a cute look! I love that you were able to use red, white, and blue without looking like an American flag! Thumbs up :)

    @Veronica - thanks! Sometimes the best tops are vintage

    @Julia - Thanks I am glad I don't resemble the flag. That would be awkward.

Thank you so much for stopping by! Your comments always make me giddy like a school girl on a sugar high. Leave your link so I can creep on you. The good kind of creeping. Not the kind where I hang your pictures in my room or anything. (awkward shuffle)

Fashionably yours,
