Feeling the Polka Dot Trend

Although polka dots have been around as long as I can remember, in 2018 there has been a resurgence and evolution from borderline Minnie Mouse style to Parisian Chic and I'm SO here for it! Well I kinda have been "for it" over the years (as can be seen here and here), but lately I am favoring the micro dots especially in cute dress form. Among my newest purchases this dress stood out and no surprise there, it was micro dotted! It was also what I wore to the Fashion Valley Neiman Marcus Fall Trend Report Luncheon (stay tuned for that recap!) As I have learned from attending this luncheon for years is that Neiman Marcus invites the most fashionable media and stylists in San Diego so dressing up is pretty much a must!

Some may say there's too much going on, but for me it has all the bells and whistles to make it interesting enough: the placement of the ruffles are flattering (although I was skeptical when I saw it online, thank Goodness they land in the right places *wink, wink*) and the asymmetric hemline. I paired this statement dress with what I consider statement shoes, which are typically a no-no but to heck with it, I really wanted to wear these Valentino babies (a gift to moi from moi). A quick note about these Valentino Rockstud heels, I went with the rose gold pair instead of the nude or black because again, I wanted something more unique, see the theme here? However this dress would also go perfectly with black pointed heels for a simple option.

I rarely talk about my beauty look, but when I spend more than 1hr on my makeup these days (with a 8.5 month old) I definitely want to point it out (lol). 

Here I was testing out a foundation and concealer that I will be revealing and talking about on my Instagram in a week, and I really loved it! I'll also be doing a giveaway of this brand of make up items on my Instagram so make sure you follow me to see & enter! On another beauty note, I have stuck to the same brand and style of eyelashes for the past year because they give my eyes enough of a pop without looking too fake!

Now I get it, this dress may not be everyone's taste, that is why I have included several micro dotted options down below! I am also trying to be inclusive of price range and size!

Let me know, are you loving dots this season?
