Vintage Polka Dot Dress
Could the polka dot be part of the reason America loved Lucy so much? There is something irreverent and downright mesmerizing about those dresses. Perhaps it’s our penchant for the shape? Or the fact that the woman wearing them was fairly talented?
A vintage dress like this definitely speaks loudly. It says you don’t abide by convention (or gender roles). You enjoy a good laugh even at your own expense. It also says you’re a bit of an attention-seeker and live to stick out (don’t apologize).
Even as polka dot dresses go, this one cranes its neck a bit further into the action with its placement of dots: wide-spaced on top and bunched on the bottom.
The scientists in our lab got all flustered when they saw what we were up to. “How could this work?” they asked. What a bunch of squares.
