BLACK AND WHITE POLKA DOT JUMPSUIT

Hi everyone, hope you are fine and not stressed at all. It is not much to go, a couple of weeks and our lives will return to normal.

Apart from typical Christmas shopping frenzy, I discovered yet another aspect that stresses me out every time I step inside the department store:  the abundance of amazing outfits all hanging waiting to be chosen to be worn during the festive season.

And although I already have a dress that I am going to wear on New Year Night, I still can't help myself  wandering into a store, having a look around and trying on a dress or two.  Surely,  we all know that window shopping, as therapeutic as it can be, can't last forever and eventually I ended up with a purchase.  I just couldn't resist the urge when I spotted this black and white polka dot jumpsuit (pun not intended).

The last time I bought a jumpsuit was four years ago exactly to the day and believe it or not, it was also in polka dot print but in reverse, the background was white and the dots were black.  Moreover, I posted it in my blog on the 18 of December 2014.

You can read the whole post here.  Is it a coincidence or not???  Back then the jumpsuit was regarded as a new LBD.  Four years later and they are still going strong.

Here is another interesting tidbit:  I don't mind jumpsuits, I quite like them but I don't actually wear them which proves the frequency with which I buy them and it was the print that attracted me to the garment in the first place back in 2014 and now and made me want to buy it.

The other detail that appeal to me is the cut as I always like tops with a scooped neck and open shoulders and I was happy to find that this jumpsuit has side pockets.

It didn't require any alterations in terms of leg length, the only thing that I didn't care about was a thin soft belt made from the same fabric and was not doing much for my waist so I replaced it with a leather one.

I am wearing it with my new Alias Mae sandals and Villa sunglasses.
