Sartorial Saturday…On A Sunday–Polka Dot Day

Happy National Polka Dot Day, a day to celebrate the iconic style of that Disney fashionista, Minnie Mouse (although I still like Daisy Duck best!). I pulled out my best polka dot dress, the Maneater swing dress from Vixen by Micheline Pitt, for the occasion:

I didn’t buy this Loungefly polka dot crossbody bag, which is designed in the pastel colors of 90s Minnie Mouse, for this holiday, but I’m glad it arrived in time for it! It doesn’t matter which side of the bag you’re looking at…they’re both adorable!!!

I accessorized with some Splendette Duchess Bangles, an Erstwilder Jemima Puddleduck brooch (you know, because Minnie Mouse’s best friend is a duck), a pink hat, and my Minnie Mouse earrings:

It might not be Minnie’s usual color combination (at least not these days), but I think I captured her joyful spirit!

I can’t believe how perfectly the whole look came together!

What a great way to remind me of the fun of our Disney World trip!

Sartorial Saturday–Polka Dot Perfection

Is there a more classic print than polka dots?

I have wanted to buy a Maneater swing dress from Vixen by Micheline Pitt for a long time, but it was never available in a color that I really loved…until recently. This gorgeous shade is called “sunset blue” and it’s of those colors that really changes depending on the light. It can be almost Pantone-color-of-the-year periwinkle, or a straight bright blue. No matter how it comes across, though, it’s a lovely shade, and finally inspired me to give the dress style a try.

I have some Splendette duchess bangles that are just perfect with the dress, as is my Erstwilder emu brooch designed by Pete Cromer.

The top of the dress is very structured, which is fantastic, and the dress has deep pockets, which is pretty much a requirement of any dress I buy these days.

And just in case you were wondering if the skirt it twirly enough…it is!

Now that I’ve tried this style of dress and know how well it fits and how much I like it, I’m looking forward to seeing what other colors it comes in in the future!
