I've had this vintage knit top since my high school days and it's always been one of my favorites. There are tiny little metallic beads sewn into the design (though I am missing a couple) that add such a delicate touch. I also love the 3/4 length sleeves and scalloped neck line. I decided to wear it with the midi-length polka-dot skirt I got at the flea market at the beginning of the month. You can't see it in all of the pictures, but I also have polka-dots on my tights. Double polka-dots all the way! (Has anyone else seen the Double Rainbow guy on youtube? I can't stop laughing.)

Yay for double spots! I swear I have those exact tights - but they are a bit torn from too much love. Weird, cause we don't have H&M here - so I wonder where I found them?

Kathleen :

I love this outfit and especially how the red in your bag, your tights and your hair all tie in together. So lovely!

Michal :

Starting to look like triple polka dots!! haha Sorry I couldn't resist. That's like my most favorite youtube vid ever. I really love this outfit though. Such wonderful details & I love how your hair matches your purse which matches your tights- perfect.

The Thriftaholic (Leilani) :

Polka dots are always a favorite of mine. I like the detailing on your sweater and the fact that you have worn it since high school.

The owl purse is AMAZING, I've never seen one like it.

The Daily Fashionista :

What does it mean?!!! hahaha!! I love that video! My friends had a double rainbow party back in September and it was pretty rad.

Your double polka dots are fantastic! That skirt is very pretty and I'm loving those tights. And your bag!!! Love that too!
