Red Polka-Dot Dress

Retrospective, red polka-dot dress! This one came from Moon Zoom in Santa Cruz and it was a birthday gift from my lovely Mum.

Jennell of California Langeree 1950s

We were out shopping together, a rare thing, she hates shopping. I've worn it often, including for various photo shoots. It fits well and boasts some impeccable bits of tailoring.

I usually pair it with white, but it could go with off white or red as well. Matchign reds though, is always an issue.

Of course I love that 1970s look with the little tie at the top. Perfectly ladylike. Some retro takes on the vintage look.

  1. I love the dress! I have always loved all the gorgeous dresses in the J Peterman catalog. And I'm a complete sucker for anything vintage, polka dotted, and pinup!
