STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Polkadots

Bloomington weather is unpredictable – fourties in the morning, mid-seventies in the evening. Last weekend I traveled to Las Vegas and I must say I am very jealous of you UNLV Fashionistas, who have the most perfect weather. Not only do you have the weather, but the funky style to accompany it. I spotted this Fashionista taking a risk with this black and white polkadot dress. And besides her lack of a cute flat or heel, the dress, earth-tone belt and pink frill headpiece work. I was never the biggest fan of polkadots until this year when I saw Victoria Legrand wearing this black and white polka dot jacket at Pitchfork. Scroll through the photos to see. And listen to her band Beach House here if you haven't already, because you're bound to be inspired. Polkadot dresses are hard to find, so try local thrift stores and boutiques. Cactus Flower on Kirkwood Ave. is your best bet. If you're more of an online Fashionsita, check out this byCORPUS polkadot dress or this spot crepe long sleeve button down dress. And this Club Monaco sophie blouse!
