I refrained from shopping a couple weeks after the holidays, but that didn’t stop me from “window shopping” online. This Dropped Dots Dress ($158.00) was the one item I browsed repeatedly online and really wanted to purchase if it fit well. Once I got to try it on at Anthropologie a few days ago, I knew this dress was coming home with me! I like polka dot print in general, but I was particularly drawn to this dress for its simple yet elegant vintage-inspired design. The dress also has side pockets, and the back has a surprising V shape that adds a fun twist to the classic look of the dress (shown on the right).
I wore a gold cinch belt to give the dress more shape. This is the Luminary Brooch Belt that’s also from Anthropologie. There’s a gold flower detail on the belt that you can see in the picture below. I got the belt on sale for about $30 (originally $48.00). I also like wearing this dress with a pop of color, such as a bright red belt or a yellow cardigan.
Just keep in mind that this Dropped Dots Dress runs small, so I suggest sizing up (especially if you have a larger chest)!
