The Perks of Wearing Polka Dots










have you ever seen a movie that wasnt just you sitting on the couch but an honestly intimate moment that lasted two hours between your soul and what was playing out on the screen? like your life took one step closer to completion. like you couldnt tell whether you wanted to go and stand in the middle of an open field until the stars blurred together and you could make sense of this new shed light or stay exactly where you are and just let the ending credits roll until they stopped so you could soak it all in and then replay it so it didnt have to end? if youve seen the perks of being a wallflower, youll understand (and if youve read it, then you really get me). if you havent, you need to. my mom and i have been trying to watch it for months and finally made the time tonight thank goodness. it was so needed and necessary. so consuming and well conducted. so pure and profound. movies engulf me emotionally i just cannot help it. but fashion feeds me. 

have you ever seen a dress that wasnt just slipped over a model amidst many others but rather an honestly intruiging piece that became an immediate closet craving? like your wardrobe took one step closer to completion (yeah right, like there is such a thing! as long as theres hangers, im having). ever wanted a pair of stilettos so suddenly it scared you? like love at first sole. or a clutch that captured the very essence of all things essential to your style? this polka dot dress, these color-blocked striped heels and the leopard accented bag became obvious obsessions from the minute i opened my mac and made my way over to lulus.com. the loose fit, folded sleeves, simple shape and soft lining, not to mention the perfectly pretty print spot-on for spring in black and white, is all what i look for when it comes to finding something fun to feel fancy in. the shoes are such a two-tone treat, taking this look to the next level with a pop of print mixing and a built in platform so you can have the height without the hurt. and theyre vegan friendly which makes my vegetarian heart so very happy! on top of the built in contrast between black and white, i knew i needed a hint of feline fierceness and what better way than to add some more spots? and a red pout to boot, the flower beauty kiss stick kicked it up an notch with its perfect rose resemblance and soft silky finish. its plain to see i need a tan but, more importantly, if you want to feel pretty, ready to play and perfectly poised, pair up with polka dots.
