WWD: Obi Wan Ke-Dotty

Polka Dots | Everybody, Everywear

Everything is coming up polka dotty today on Everybody Everywear, so I thought I'd go QWAZY and mix my dots. I'm like the Jedi-master of poka dots. Well, the skirt has dots, the blouse is more like blobs, but you catch my drift.



ANYHOOOOOO, I knew immediately I wanted to mix these pieces, but unfortch didn't try them on until this morning, and it was just too...DOTTY...when they were right there together.

NOOOOO! I cried. What will I doooo???? This is POLKA DOT DAY on Everybody Everywear, for the love of Phyllis Diller!!!! Help me Obi Wan!!!

Patience. He answered. Use the force. THINK.

I've got it!!!! I shouted. It's true. I did shout. Woke The Hubs up, and he was none too happy about it, I can tell you.
.
Okay, I didn't shout at all. I didn't even say a thing. I was just embellishing for the sake of the story. My bad. I DID, howevah, grab my red obi sash that I got off ebay long ago, and far, far away.

Threw that sucka on, et voila! A star was born. Or a dot.

I TOLD you I'm a Jedi-master of The Dot. May the force be with you.

That skirt is hands down the best polka dotted item on everybody everywear so far! I love it!Is it from this season?

SHUT THE FRONT DOOR, YA'LL!!! You are making me blush!!

Carrie - yup, the belt was eBay all right. I don't even think it was $20. El cheapo.

Bella - Wow - THANK YOU! That is so nice! Sadly, I think it as last season. I got it on clearance probably 6 or 8 months ago.

Mwah!
