THE POLKA DOT FROCK || DOTTY HISTORY










  • Just a little trivia, did you know that polka dots has been around since mid 1920's? I found out that after Ms. America been photographed in a polka dot swimsuit in 1926, American's been in-love with this flecks since then. A few years after Disney present the ever beloved Minnie Mouse on a polka frock with the cute bow. Read more about the brief history of polka dots and how it evolves written by Chloe Pantazi of The Hairpin.com

  • I never got the chance to wear this dress after I purchase it few months back in a thrift store. It's original price is Ph80 ($2 approx) then it went on sale I got it for Ph35, few cents of a dollar I thinkMy long term relationship with thrifting is not a secret to anyone, I start thrifting clothes when I was only 14 years old, a Fashionista wannabe back then, but I don't have the knowledge on the "basics". I just wear what I love and pairing uncomplimentary pieces together. ;) I'm not a fond of polka dot really but as I grew older (with this blog) I learn to appreciate this very antique style of clothing.

  • The last dot polka dot dress that I wore is last seen here . Have worn this, when I was just recovering by flu, but yet suffer symptoms of cough and cold. Sobssss, I just didn't give the justice that the dress deserves and to my pictures too, I might pair with this scarf, pin curls or something rockabilly-esque look. What do you think?

  • Hope you're doing okay!
