One of the many, many, many...
Whenever I see a fluffy puppy or a polka dot dress, I immediately think the exact same thing.
I. MUST. HAVE. EET.
Unfortunately, collecting dogs are out of my budget (for now, muahaha). So, polka dot dresses it is!
I have quite the collection of polka dot dresses but this is my favourite out of the lot. I came across many online stores with this classic pinup girl design but I found the best version ever from a vintage store based in the UK. I adored it the second I saw it 3 months back and just had to have it. And then I saw the price. GBP 69. *breathebreathebreathe*
I looked all over online for a similar copy but similar dresses could not compete the utter adoration I still had for this specific dress. The only way to purchase this very dress was through that website, as a designer named Tara Starlet only makes these dresses for that very site and that's it.
But, let me tell you. If eBay was a man, I would have its triplets. I searched eBay every day for 2 months and got extremely lucky one day thanks to an American girl who had purchased it but was too lazy to return it all the way back to London for a different size. So here I am with my gorgeous polka dot dress with an almost 50% discount! It was originally a tad loose around the chest and back and nothing a bit of alteration couldn't fix.
Behold, THE polka dot dress. You shall one day meet its many sisters on this blog, of course.

Shoes - Payless.com US$15
