My Inspiration

As fashion/style bloggers, we all have to find inspiration somewhere right? Well, mine came from none other, than Mrs. Minnie herself! Isn’t she a cutie pie? And what girl doesn’t love polka dots???

I decided to down-play the youthfulness (or shall I say the Minnie Mouse feel) of this dress by pairing it with a tough faux-leather motorcycle jacket & black accessories. The black & white polka dot flower pin was a fun, added touch!

I picked this vintage dress up a while back while thrifting. It just makes me feel so ladylike (and yall know I don’t wear skirts/dresses often). It was a  nice change from the pants that I’m accustomed to wearing. And of course, I’m a sucka for any dress or skirt that has pockets. It just adds a lil something extra.
I love the length of this dress, but I’m still on the fence about giving it the “big chop”.  I kinda want it knee length, but then again I like the feel of this length. What do you guys think?

    It looks SO good! This outfit is great! And you can't beat a dress with pockets 🙂
    I think you should make it knee-length. The last pic gives a feel of what it would look like.

    Cut Cute Cute!!!! I love the modern gals(your) version of Minnie mouse! So perfect!!! If your on the fence keep it long until you can't stand it anymore then shorten it.

    Also I love your post on the LBP your shoe collection is swoon worthy =)

    Lovely dress. I think knee length would look better for this shape and pattern.

    I love that you were inspired by Minnie!! I think it would be great knee length, but I love the current length also.

    P.S Dots is having a great clearance sale; buy 2 items and the 3rd is free. Yesterday I scored black harem pants for $9 & black skinny flares for $7, my free item was a chunky silver and black necklace. I'm wearing the harem pants and necklace and I've been getting compliments all day; gotta love Dots!!!!

    Thank you so much for checking out my blog. I love this dress! I love the polka dots and the length is perfect on you. The leather jacket certainly changes this from innocent to sexy just like that. Very cute. Love your hair too and OMG those shoes!
