10 and 2: Sunshine Polka Dot Dress

So I was supposed to be documenting the 10 and 2 challenge I took on a few weeks ago, until I realized that meant I would need to spend a lot of quality time in my closet. And much like a frazzled young girl scared of commitment, I just kind of avoided the issue and didn’t return its phone calls. But now, I think I am ready. So let’s take that next step, Closet. Together. Yes, I will meet your family.

This dress is a real conundrum for me. I understood the theory when I bought it, but I NEVER wore it.

What I love:

  • The accordion pleats.
  • The neck tie.
  • The silky texture.
  • Polka.Dots.

What I hate:

  • It’s just a shapeless bag if you don’t belt it.
  • Not sure on the colorway.
  • A bit odd where the hem falls on me.

Jury is still out on this one. We will see how I feel at the end of the challenge. Have you started spring cleaning your style yet?

      Yay thanks! It’s always good to have some outside eyes on things like this.

    This dress incorporates all of my favorite things! Yellow, polka dots, pleats… it’s really cute. Does it go all the way up to your neck? I can’t really tell in the photo. I can see how you’d have trouble styling this, but I really like it belted, and I think it would be really cute with a blazer or cardigan over it too… I say it’s a keeper, but only if you can see yourself wearing it again! 🙂

      Thanks! Yep it goes all the way up to the neck and then it ties there, you could tie ti front or back or side. I think I might give this dress another chance. Trying it with a blazer is a great idea!


  3. This is such a pretty dress! You look great!
