Currently in Hawaii, I can don my 50s inspired, thrifted polka dot dress without leggings, stockings, or high boots, but those will definitely be open options once I head back to Seattle. Knowing I could wear this dress in so many different ways confirmed my need to buy it. Tip: when looking at a potential thrift, imagine if every time you use it, you would be spending one dollar. If I could wear my dress at least seven different ways (or at least seven times), then it was worth the $7 buy. Sometimes you come across a costly and extremely unique or dressy piece that you can only see yourself wear once a year or in one way. I've worn my hat so many times, it's already down to pennies per time. I'm also planning on putting aside my Nine West corsage belt and wearing this I Love Lucy mini as is: a polka dotted potato sack. Pulling this off the rack, I held in hand a straight-line dress and knew a cinching belt would give me back my curves. However, I'm planning on showcasing this bubbly babe like a tunic dress. To-may-to, to-mah-to.
