Style Session: Polka Dots Pin Up Style

I recently got to meet the one and only Betsey Johnson as part of her new clothing line launch at Macy's. She was an utter delight and her new clothes are just as whimsically fun! I ended up winning this adorable polka dot dress at the event, and I have to say...we are pretty perfect for each other. It was giving me major pin up vibes from the moment I saw it, so I knew I had to shoot it at my favorite vintage spot: South Loop Loft.


Betsey's new collection has all of the colorful and pattern heavy whimsy that we've all come to know and love about her! But so many of her pieces also seem very vintage inspired; something that I'm majorly loving! From the cut to the simple black and white polka dot pattern of this dress, I couldn't help but feel like I was in an episode of Man Men while wearing it. It seems like the perfect dress to wear while hosting a cocktail party. I mean, the perfect bar cart counts as an accessory right?

Keeping with the Man Men vintage vibes, I even added my favorite pair of pearls and a bold red lip. Now someone pass me the cocktail shaker, turn on the record player, and let's get this fancy party started!
