This dress was on a bargain rail in a charity shop for £1.00. I think the shop was having a final clearance of summer stock. However it was in my size and I was looking for a dress to wear to a presentation evening which I have to attend with my husband in a few weeks.
I don't have many polkadot dresses so this black/white dress is a little different for me. I am not sure if it looks a little large but the belt, which is more of a decorative feature, helps to give it a little shape. I shall wear a cardigan with it to the event as bare arms would not be wise at this time of the year, even in a no doubt well heated hall, and a cardigan would increase the modesty of the overall look of the outfit.
