I have to be honest I am not a huge fan of polka dots. I much prefer the print’s linear, and way preppier cousin the stripe, but I am caught in the waves of this mermaid Oscar de la Renta gown. Aside from the obviously fab couture cut and fresh floral detail, this gown makes me want to kick off my heels and dance barefoot on the beach while gazing up at the stars above… Perchance to dream
I love the idea of pairing an unexpected hat with the look (and any gown for that matter) but would have gone for an overstated floppy version like the style below. The runway chapeau is top heavy and static- an unbalanced compliment to the gown’s graceful fluidity.
