Hello Dottie! :ootd

    ThredUp was positively inundated with Anthropologie dresses in December and now my closet is practically bursting with these gorgeous styles and each one only cost me about $20.  (If you're new to ThredUp use this link to sign up and save $20 off your first order http://www.thredup.com/r/WKVOY5  )    This one is called Dropped Dots and like the others it cost me all of $20, which is a tiny price to pay for its classy 40's style and perfect cut.  
    The shell is a linen material and although it looks black and white, it is actually navy blue and ivory. The curved in bodice helps to accentuate the narrowest part of the waist and little bit of flare in the skirt is great for balancing a curvy figure.  I also love that the skirt hits just above the knee, which I think is the perfect length. 
    For the outfits for this dress I wanted to play with the "red,white, and blue" theme.  Since it already has (navy) blue and (ivory) white, I decided to make my red a burgundy shade and make it a little fun with this floral embroidered cardi that I've had for ages.  Then in the second outfit I went more neutral with pearls, black heels and the only red being the accent on the purse.
