Today is May 3rd, Polish Constitution Day, so it seemed fitting to post my Polish pride, red and white polka dotted outfit. Not only are red and white the national colors, Polka also means Polish woman in the Polish language and it makes me wonder whether the bohemian dance and music of the same name had any inspiration in the naming of this classic pattern.
On the opposite side, the look also feels very all-American. If Marilyn Monroe baked pies she'd wear something like this, don't you think? It has a classic glamour with a little hollywood pin-up style peppered in, a look I simply can't resist.
This dress is another great thrift find. It was actually hanging in the window at my favorite local thrift shop and I wasn't immediately drawn to it but decided to give it a try anyway. I'm glad I did because it fits like a glove and is in fabulous condition.
P.S. Recognize the shoes? They were on my birthday wishlist and lucky 'ole me got them from boyfriend. They're taking a bit of breaking into but I'm loving their semi badass vibe.
