Delias Polka Dot Dress04
I recently got this Delias dress for only $14.99.  It’s a girls/teen store but if you scour, there are a few cute dresses.  This dress is 100% cotton (including the lining), has pockets and of course polka dots. I clearly don’t need anymore polka dots in my life but I was lured in by the price and had polka dot goggles on.

The XS was a bit roomy on me both in the waist ( waist was 13″ flat across), chest and armholes so I decided to shrink it.  Since the lining is cotton, I didn’t have to worry about having to take up the hem (if it’s poly, it won’t shrink).  I love that the straps are “bra friendly” per the description online.  After washing and drying on high heat, all areas shrunk about 1″.  The straps and armholes now fit me perfectly and the waist is 12″ across.  I was afraid the length would be too short afterwards but it worked out okay.

This dress was super comfortable and easy to wear. I wore it last weekend when my parents were in town.

  1. Beautiful setting and good food. As for your outfit, I certainly adore and approve your polka dot dress and the nice sandals. You’re flying high with beauty like the winged sculpture in the first and third pictures. Very nice!

  2. Such a grand staircase! I love this building and I hope you get to go back to it. It looks like a pretty place to have a wedding too. šŸ˜‰ I love the polka dot dress on you and I’m glad shrinking worked. I was too lazy to figure out what else to get in order to get free ship so I never ordered. lol All your food pictures are making me hungry and the photos you took of the seascape are so gorgeous and professional.

    • Thanks Jess! They just has free shipping with no minimum. Let me see if I can find the email for ya! I can’t wait to go back to this spot for better photos. All these were taken with my iPhone so quality wasn’t the best.

  3. Hello this is kind of of off topic but I was wanting to know
    if blogs use WYSIWYG editors or if you have to manually code with HTML.
    I’m starting a blog soon but have no coding knowledge so I wanted to get advice from
    someone with experience. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

  4. Whoa! This blog looks exactly like my old one!
    It’s on a entirely different subject but it has pretty much the
    same layout and design. Great choice of colors!

  5. Cool blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A design like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my
    blog stand out. Please let me know where you
    got your theme. Many thanks

  6. excellent post, very informative. I ponder why the other specialists of this sector do not realize this.
    You should continue your writing. I am confident, you have a great readers’ base

  7. I’m really inspired along with your writing abilities and also with the structure
    for your blog. Is that this a paid topic or did you
    customize it your self? Anyway keep up the nice high
    quality writing, it is uncommon to look a great blog like this one nowadays..

  8. I really love your blog.. Excellent colors & theme. Did you make this site yourself?
    Please reply back as I’m wanting to create my own blog and would love to find
    out where you got this from or what the theme is named.

  9. Wonderful article! This is the type of info that should
    be shared across the web. Disgrace on the search engines for no longer positioning this publish higher!

    Come on over and consult with my website . Thanks =)

  10. Hello would you mind sharing which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a difficult time choosing between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs
    and I’m looking for something completely unique.
    P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!
