I love polka dot dresses. This one has pockets and is very lightweight, perfect for summer in Southern California. I have found many black and white 50s style polka dot dresses at second hand stores over the years and this is the one I wear the most. When temperatures drop I just throw on red cardigan over it and add some thick black tights. I also have a pair of black tights with tiny white polka dots that give it a somewhat different look. Finding clothes that are this versatile helps a lot when you are passionate about sustainability AND fashion.
If you love fashion but are committed to sustainability I highly reccomend black and white clothes and accessories, especially shoes. I also found the black and white wing tip vans I wear with this dress at a second hand store. I wear the all the time with dressed up looks and more casual outfits in every color and they help me look pulled together when I’m in a hurry and don’t have time to overthink and over analyze my outfits. Saddle shoes have this effect as well.
If you are wondering about the bruises on my face in some of the photos, I got them at a skate park in Europe last month. I attempted to skate an obstacle that was was above my ability level and ended up crashing face first in to the concrete. My hip also absorbed some of the impact which I think is why my cheekbone did not break. It was worth it.
