Since my sweetie and I bought a condo in Oakland, CA, last month I have been catching up with my friends that live on this side of the Bay and going out to lunch or a movie whenever I can. This flirty polka dot mini dress, with leggings, is my new go-to outfit. Yours Clothing was kind enough to send it to me to be reviewed. It is a UK Size 26 – 28 which would be a US size 22 – 24, and it is a great fit. I also love this black version with a print, which I might just have to have for the warm weather to come. It looks fun, and it is very lightweight which is great since Oakland weather is about 10 degrees warmer than San Francisco.
I have been wearing this dress with neon pink fishnet tights from We Love Color, which come in 51 colors, and these are Plus Size “One Size” Size 1X – 3X and they fit perfectly, but I think I am at the top of their range, since I am a size 26-28, the size chart says hips to 48 inches and mine are well over 50″, they are also not very long. I think the fishnets would also be fun with black stockings underneath them, to match the polka dot color even more, but it would have to be a pretty cold day to make that comfortable.
The silver shoes are a Size 10 from Torrid and I would love to have 10 pair of them. They are my favorites, and I seem to have bought the last pair in the world. And the silver belt was a gift from a friend.I also tried the dress with cropped tights and little black flats since it was really warm one day, but I think it looks better with long tights whether they are pink or black.
5/32013 Update: One of my readers suggested the pink tights needed a pop of pink at the top of my body, perhaps a scarf, and I agreed. But I am not really a scarf girl so I bought some vintage 1980s big button clip on earrings which are totally tubular for less than $10 including shipping. We will see if that does the trick.
