Peachy Polka Dots | Fashion After Fifty
Hello friends, I hope all is well in your world.
This Peachy Polka Dot outfit never made it onto the blog in May, but I couldn’t let it pass by without a least an honorable mention. I love Polka Dots and this dress was one of the ones I purchased at Boscov’s in 2005 when I was searching for something to wear to my grandmother’s funeral. She loved the color blue and polka dots as much as I, however, I ended up wearing a traditional black dress.
I love this dress and I usually end up wearing it at least 4 times a year. Because it’s sleeveless, it obviously works well in the Spring and Summer, however, if I throw on a cardigan or pullover sweater it works equally well in the Fall and Winter.
The dress originally came with a blue ribbon belt and bolero jacket, however, I decided to wear it with this peach, thick waisted belt which was purchased from Rugged Wearhouse for only $1.00. Needless to say, at that price I got several in different colors, isn’t the oversized sheer flower in the front cute?
The Polka Dot purse was also from Rugged Wearhouse and I may have mentioned this before, but they have some cute and inexpensive accessories. The necklace and earring set is from Avon and the shoes are Urbanog.com.
What is your favorite print or pattern?

Thank you my bloggy friend, hope all is well on your end.
My favorite print is paisley. However, that also depends on the colors in the print. I like the corals and peacock blues.
Yes, I have a few paisley jackets but haven’t worn them yet.
Love this dress….and added glam points for that cute red belt! You wore it beautifully!!! I love stripes and paisley btw.
Thank you, I appreciate the compliments!
I love that dress, the belt is genius, it’s great for your figure! And for just a dollar!
