Outfit Details: 
vintage polka dot dress: thrifted
motorcycle sweater jacket: Loehmann's
unicorn pin: thrifted
Rina boot: C/O 80%20


To tone down the Minnie Mouse factor of this dress, I thought incorporating some black would be a good idea. I found that motorcycle jacket a year or so ago and I'm so glad for it because while I do like the shape, what I really love is that it's made out of sweatshirt material. It kind of softens the implicit edGiNeSS and makes the piece more wearable, in my opinion. 

PS Tomorrow is the last day to enter my giveaway! One lucky duck (you??)  could win $75 to shop my vintage store, Three Feathers! Check out the details right over HERE

  3. I love anything with polka dots :D & the fact that your motorcycle jacket is sweater material versus leather is genius! Definitely makes the outfit more soft

    Cheers

  13. I like that dress a lot, red is a great color on you. I have a sweatshirt motorcycle jacket too. I love how it tones down outfits that could maybe possibly get a little too twee. :)
