Navy Blue and White Polkadots!!
The fit of this dress is my ideal for a bodycon – it gives room around the bust and upper back and cinches the waist and hips very nicely.
Worn Before and Again!!
I like navy as a “serious” colour and as a variant on wearing black for meetings and important appointments.
The dolman sleeves are perfect for the swelling in my arms which has been a feature of my life since my breast cancer treatments – and although I’m grateful to be here and to have been able to access treatment, it is an uncomfortable condition so these sleeves are appreciated!
Pops of Pink!!
Whether my hair was up or down, I just loved the pops of pink in the shoes, bracelet and teeny wicker handbag. I felt they gave a conservative look a bit of oomph!
I also liked my little navy stretch and bow detail belt to emphasise my waist and make the outfit a bit less conservative!!
Thank you for joining me in my little corner of the web!!

No worries, Donna! I have problems with WP, at times, too. 💕

One of my favorite color combos! This dress is a dream and oh so, flattering! Absolutely love the retro feel of it.

It’s the perfect shape for me, I feel – unfortunately the fabric is a bit chatty and cheap, although the dress was moderately priced … I ordered it off an Australian company online, something I rarely do! Anyway, I’m going to keep wearing it and maybe see about getting one made in a better quality fabric as it’s my favourite early sixties/Madmen style!!
Thank you for coming in and having a look, Lizzie – I’m sorry I haven’t been over to yours as often lately but will address that!!

The bow waist detail is such a darling inclusion, I completely agree. It takes this dress from looking all business, to business during the day, glam cocktails or an evening at the theatre after work – or simply for bopping around town in anytime one desires.
I adore the accessory colour you went with here. That’s a gorgeous combo that we just don’t see enough these days, IMO, in the fashion world.

Thank you for your kind comment, Autumn!! I do like some brightness in my outfits, although really I do wear a fair bit of black on black … and darker colours do suit me but still it’s nice to have a pop of pink here and there when the will takes us!! Details are my thing so I just couldn’t resist the belt with this!!
I’m glad you enjoyed the outfit and thank you again for your kind comment!! 🧚🏻♀️❤️🐝
