Polka Dots and Red

Firstly, Happy New Year!

Though I float around extremely casual and fashion-conservative circles (not unfashionable, just conservative, mind you), sometimes, I get to "dress up" a bit. This is probably the extent to which I would don these three-inch heels. In high school, I used to wear heels everyday. But over the past few years, I've been slowly converted to the "comfort over fashion" mindset, even though I haven't had the heart to dispose of all my heels. Every once in a while, I get the itch to put them on, even though I'm not used to the height and look like a penguin walking in them.

I got my polka dots (dress AND purse) and I got my red on (tights and nails), so I think I'm pretty much covered, luck-wise, for the new year. I really (REALLY) like this dress. I've always been in love with sweetheart necklines-- they are oh so feminine and flirty-- but can't find a dress with that cut that doesn't make me look like a tramp. This dress is not only perfect for colder weather because of the turtleneck, but also covers my up nicely. The turtleneck is somewhat sheer, so it doesn't look heavy, and the length is just right for my height. Paired with some stilettos and my legs look inches longer.

I'm not so good with resolutions. I can never keep track of them, and I feel as if I have to really sit down and define what I mean by "eat less" or "study harder" in order to stop myself from finding loopholes. So I'll make a simple resolution-- one that I know I can stick to: to wear a different article of clothing/accessory everyday.

What are your resolutions?

  1. I love the polka dots - and wearing a shirt underneath is a perfect way to dress it down a little but still keep it chic and flirty.
