EBEW: Polka Dots

I really like polka dots.
And it would appear that most of my dots are in my summer wardrobe.
Bummer.
But I did a little mixing and matching to try to find something to wear today for Everybody, Everywhere.

Not to mention- it was totally windy/cold/rainy when I took these.
I really love the way purple and red look together.
(Although it is always reminiscent of the Red Hat Society to me.)
It makes me happy!
Studded Belts and Ruffled booties also make me HAPPY!
This is a dress with thin straps that I tucked down and paired it over a black shirt.
Just think of all the possibilites sitting in your closet, ladies.
purple cardi: LB, black v-neck: LB, red polka dot dress (as a skirt): RAINBOW, studded belt: LB, booties: DOTS, ring/bracelet: GIFT
Check out those ruffles.
And the bruise on my leg, how attractive.
I'm so clumsy.
If you want to check out how some of my fellow bloggers styled their choice of polka dots, Check out the EBEW website.

Now, a subject near and dear to my heart:
HAPPY MARDI GRAS!
I love fat tuesday.
I hope my pals down in NOLA (shoutout to Carli-bo-barli) are having the most fun ever.
Laissez les bon temps roulez!
So, enjoy some king cake, my loves.
And a hurricane.
YUM!
