Mattie Many: One Dress, Two Ways

I’m head over heels for my H&M yellow polka dot dress. So much that I wore twice this past weekend. Different days and different crowds of course. But it’s amazing how many outfits you can build around an amazing piece. Polka dots tickle my fancy in the spring. It’s like they’re even more charming than usual. Anytime I get dressed, I try to create a feel. Friday night, I headed to a friend’s birthday gathering where I knew I’d be dancing and amongst some stylish people so I dressed up my frock with booties and a blazer. The next day, I headed to the park with Hubs for a picnic on a gorgeous Saturday afternoon. I dressed it down a bit with Oxfords and added some spunk with these oversized glasses. Two very different feels with the same dress.

  5. LOL! Thanks a million, Stephanie. That means so much to me especially since I’m a fan of yours as well. I’m glad we finally connected outside of Twitter :) xo

  6. This pepsy / fruity polka-dot dress (utterly) is “Vintage-ilicious”, AND I MUST confess that I (especially) like the way her flirt with such blazer and architectural sandals (softly) steals the alliance preppy inspiration / futuristic-like avant-gardism Dear !!!

  9. I need this dress! Why havent I seen it in NYC? Perhaps I missed when it was in store. :( And those BCBG booties are friggen cute as hell! You look so vintagey-delicious. ;-)

  10. Thanks, Nicole! I scored the dress like two seasons ago at H&M…for $5! I literally had to contain myself. And I think I’ve said this before, but those BCBG booties are easily one of the smartest purchases I’ve made to date.

  11. OMG! Look at all these comments! Of course I LOVE LOVE LOVE what yo are doing I actually saw a woman on the train today in brown oxfords and thought to myself that was exactly the pair of shoes I needed to add to my wardrobe for the spring!
