Polka dots and Poison




Yesterday I spent the day in bed thanks to a little cold, except for when I got so sick of looking at the dust bunnies on the floor and my messy vanity table. Then I cleaned the bedroom, because I am that kind of crazy person who can't stand to do nothing all day.
All is well now, and this is my outfit on a rainy work day, sans wool coat. But that is all I have to say for the moment as my mind is full of hat design ideas I'm eager to try out over the weekend :)

You're too cute! :) I always love the vintage dress/sneakers combo (rarely wear it, but that's because the only pair of sneakers I have are bright pink plaid Chucks! ;).

Hope you're feeling better! I can't wait to read about your hat designing... Have fun with that!

I'm sorry you weren't feeling well. I'm the same when lying in bed all day, I have to do something, and it's usually clean :o)

Loving it! I really love the sneakers they are really cute and that hat - LOVE vintage hats but I have a big head and they almost never fit me when I find them!

Such a cute look, so 50's and then a splash of the converse. Love it

the shoes and your dress would seem incompatible with each other, but they look really well together.
