I don't like spots ... When you mostly wear true vintage you start to fear dots, pin dots, POLKA dots, DOTS, because this is the print for the so called 50s fashion you find on cheap repros. So if you are a lover of the truest of the true - at a special point - you start to avoid dots of any kind, just not to look repro. Silly isn't it?! Happened to me and as I heard, happened to quite a few vintage lovers more.
But to be true, dots are a true to era print. You really find more then a few true 1950s dresses (where the dots-thing got inspired from) and for sure you find some dots in 40s fashion ...
The past year I came across a few dresses ... with dots. With all three I went through a struggle, if I could deal with the hated print. Everytime I decided that the print shouldn't be an issue to me. The fun thing about those three actually is, that I was so lost into thinking about dots - that I totally igonred the fact that I bought navy with white dots, navy with white-red-ish dots and again ... navy with white dots.
The dress on the bottom is my favourite out of the dot dress family - I was just able to get my hands on her, as a friend didn't snagged her up earlier ... tatataaa .... because she doesn't like to wear dots anymore. Lucky me.
Dotilicious. Gimme more.
