I remember when I first received this dress. I tried it on, and the collar looked somehow long and very vintage. Then I saw a little loophole and realized that those long ties where supposed to go in there!! And that is the moment I knew I was in love with this bow tie dress! You can still wear it without the bow, but it looks way too cute with it. I find blue polka-dots dresses to be the easiest to style, and always have a few in my closet. You do not need to add much to make a classy and fun look. The geranium Kate Spade handbag gives a little pop of color. It is amazing how many compliments I get on this handbag. It is my everyday bag during spring and summer, and I get a minimum of three compliments per day! Even strangers stop me in the street to tell me how cute it is! Who knew it would end up being the best conversation starter and ice-braker! The color is so pretty… and looks perfect with pretty much anything!
