I'm Not A Cliche

 
Polkadots have been ruined by becoming a Rockabilly/50's cliche. 
Wanna look try hard?  Wear a polkadotted halter necked dress.
 
I like to think I don't look cliched in this ORIGINAL 1950's dress!
 
 
The collar doesn't quite stand up on it's own so it needs help with me constantly pulling it up and doing a little cliche try hard Rockabilly face as well.
 
 

I'm going red haired this week!  Wish me luck!

50's day dress: Likewise Vintage
Shoes: Sandler
Belt: Thrifted
Bakelite: Etsy, eBay

  2. Polka dots maybe over played but they look great on everyone especially you. I want a red x black polka dot dress but the fabric is really hard to find.

    1. I thought that fabric would be easy to access. Maybe try online?

    2. It is but it's like $8 a yard for it. I'll wait a while and see if I don't get lucky at the thrift stores.

  5. The dress looks amazing! Well good luck with red hair, it's a lot of work! I have red hair as well but my parents are pushing me to become a blonde again, otherwise they said I can never dye my hair again :(

    Basically just make sure you wash your hair in water as cold as possible (as cold as you can take, warm water makes the pigment of your hair come off faster), don't let the shampoo sit; put it in your hair, make it foam and wash it right out and always use products for colour treated hair!

    Love,

  6. I love the last picture, you look fab! Can't wait to see the red, I've been many colors myself but always go back to red, it's my go-to color. I have a vintage polka-dot dress as well, but don't wear it that often for just that reason. I can wear every other 50's style apparel, but when I pull that one out suddenly I'm Betty-Boop!

  9. You look sensational and not the teeniest bit cliche at all. I know what you mean though, I sometimes feel that way if I wear a vintage ensemble involving cherries, too.
