1940s Polka Dot Dress

I finally got around to making some repairs on this little dress I've had hanging in my closet for over a year! It's also the first time I've busted out these shoes- I could just never figure out what to wear with them.
I felt pretty fancy at work. So fancy that I'm now home in sweatpants totally worn out from the fanciness of it all. Fancy IS work. Fancy has earned me a nap.

1940s dress- Etsy
cardigan- G Stage (Forever 21 style clothing shop)
green heeled oxfords- Aerosoles via Goodwill
bakelite bangle- Etsy
birdie ring- Urban Outfitters

Close up of my little heeled forest green oxfords. I got these as well as an identical pair in brown at the Goodwill- they were brand new!
My odd little beak-less birdie ring. How does he eat? We may never know. It's a mystery. I imagine he must hum instead of chirp.


  1. Super Cute! I love that ring! I think the shoes make that outfit more day wear. Take away the cardigan and add some strappy shoes and you have a flirty night look. I love dresses like that.

  2. Thank you so much, ladies!
    Dress Dame- you are so right- I think I will get a lot of wear out of this dress now that it's fixed!
