polka dot birthday dress from Zara
Dress, Zara, £40
Shoes, New Look, £20
Flower, New Look, £3
I think I have a slight obsession with polka dots, so when I saw this black polka dot dress in Zara I almost jumped in delight!
Its not like all my other polka dot dresses, this one is an absolute statement polka dot dress and because its from Zara you know the quality and tailoring is going to be good.
Anyway, ignoring the £40 price tag I decided to try it on. After all I did need a birthday dress.
As soon as I zipped the dress up, I was in love with it. If fitted so well and emphasized my small waist and top half and disguised my pear shape body, making me appear hourglass with its 50's style skirt and soft pleating.
I simply had to have the dress. Customised with a skinny belt and some high court heels I felt ready for my birthday already!
I think I will accessorize with a single strand of pearls, to keep it looking classic and then a red flower in my hair to work with the red belt and shoes.
Oh and guess what... Zara is selling a skirt in matching fabric and pattern, which again is a lovely shape. I was very tempted!
what do you think of this dress? :)
