Polka Dots are Back

Hello Hello!!  So a few months ago I was just looking for something with polka dots, I don’t know why but I was really like I need some dots in my life.  So I was kind of looking all over the place for a dress that I really just loved.  I found myself on asos.com which i think has the best selection of all the sites I looked at.

Now this is the dress that I bought

So yes this is a screenshot of the dress I bought.  So as you can see it is a midi length dress which as I am a short person can be a little bit of a problem.  So I forgot to take any pics of the dress before I started messing with the hem.  Now at first I was a little hesitant given how big the print was but after I got it I knew it would work.

So I messed around with the hem to get it a little bit better of a length, now I did this myself with a pair of scissors and drew on the hem of another of my dresses that I like.  I wouldn’t recommend this for anyone else, I was okay with if I messed up I was out a dress or I was going to cut the hem shorter and make a mini dress.  But I you are a little bit more worried I would recommend a tailor.

So I went with a rounded hem that comes up on the side and is a tiny bit longer in the back.  Honestly after I went after it with the scissors I was no sure how it would go.  But the minute I put it on and looked in the mirror I loved how this hem worked out.  The dress I copied was a tighter dress so I wasn’t sure how it would work out.  I LOVE IT!!  I am actually surprised how much I love it.

This is the type of dress that I really like so much.  It is lose but has this cinched waist that really stands out.  I honestly have not worn this out yet (black long sleeve dress doesn’t go well in summer).  But I am excited to mess around with styling it.  I think it will look really good with belts.

Let me know your thoughts

Later!
