I Play A Polka

I'm really tremendously pleased with this one (it's a recent acquisition)...there might come a time when I'm sick of its girlieness but that time isn't now.
Sorry about the weird position. I had to make sure the entire dress was in the mirror while holding the back closed (it's a button-up, bloody tough to do up if I'm on my own. But the giant, swishy skirt makes up for it).
Given that it's a little too strappy to wear out during the day if I don't want lecherous idiots goggling at me, I guess some layering is called for (I'll probably still get stared at anyway, but fingers up to them).
I love a dress with pockets...in fact, I love pockets in general. And I'm sorry about how blurry the pictures are, my hand can't stop itself from shaking.
PS: I'm really crap at posing, so excuse the weirdness, please?

Dresses with pockets just make them so laid back! I think this is the 1st time I've seen a pic of you...so funny how physically anonymous the blogosphere feels sometimes...

Elisabeth said...

Ah - we are near-twins - I have a dress so spookily similar to that!

It looks great on you, and really cute with the t-shirt underneath!

fashionaddict said...

Ooh, definitely wear it out with the stripey tee, too cool.

The blurriness actually makes the dress look like an abstract print, which is kind of cool.

bobo said...

like the tee.

makes me think of clove cigarettes. :)

The dress is darling. So 40s!

I reckon I'm late with the replying back...but thanks, everyone, for being so kind about the pics! I've actually never put up an outfit post before :)And Elisabeth, it's likely that the dresses we own are similar- this one came from H&M, so if that's where you got yours we really are sartorial twins..
