Polka dot skirt on a Tuesday

IMG_0040

So, I go swing dancing downtown on Tuesday nights and like to dress vintage-esque. Well, we’re also battling the heat here in the Pacific Northwest, so this seems like the perfect outfit for work and then Tuesday night swing dancing – white t-shirt, red pumps (love these!) and black and white polka dot skirt.

The skirt is actually this one from Heartbreaker Fashion (although I did get many inquiries about whether or not I had sewn it myself!), and now that I’m linking to it, I’m realizing how much I look like the model. Totally not intentional! Red, white, and black just happens to be one of my favorite color combos (despite the awful sun-burned zebra and newspaper jokes).

I have to say that I’m really starting to embrace vintage repro. I really don’t feel like I’m wearing my vintage clothing particularily hard, but it seems to disintegrate a little bit each time I wear it. That being said, vintage repro (and vintage) can be quite spendy, so I think I’m going to start sewing more of my own. 😉

Also, I just wanna say that all the pics here were taken on my iPhone (silly me forgot to charge her camera batteries), and I am super impressed with the quality. Why I waited so long to get this handy little device, I don’t know, but I’m glad I have it now. 😉

    1. I do go there! Sorry I missed you, my swing dance partner had a burst water heater! And isn’t it amazing!? The one in Tacoma is pretty neat, too, but that one goes a bit too late for my taste.

      Hope I get to see you there sometime!
