Anyone else feel like just about everything polka-dotted looks at least slightly retro? Even brand-new stuff in relatively contemporary shapes and cuts just makes me think 50s diners and Betty Boop when polka dots come into play. And not in a bad way – not at all! I love me some retro and repro as much as the next gal. Just strikes me as odd since plaids, stripes, and florals are easily as common but don’t feel as closely associated with a past era. Anyhoo, this cotton voile dress is a late summer favorite. Lightweight, comfy, and retro-cute. read more

OK, I didn’t really go to the cowgirl ballet. If it existed, though, I would totally buy tickets. Just referring to my Western-esque denim shirt and ballet-reminiscent tulle skirt, juxtaposed here with a few chunky jewels.  A fun and sassy combo, to be sure, and yet another way that my unexpectedly workhorse-y pink skirt has gotten itself worn. read more
