What NYC Recessionista Wears: polka dot dress

Yesterday, I put on a new Modcloth dress for the first time.  Hmm .. there’s nothing quite like putting on a new dress for the first time, is there?

Ross Simon pearl earrings (similar) / Modcloth ‘Dear Creatures’ dress / bangles c/o Charming Charlie (here and here) / bangles c/o Kendra Phillips / moon and star bangle (similar) / letter ‘A’ bangle c/o Gorjana-Griffin / rose gold watch c/o Caravelle by Bulova (similar) / Kate Spade tights / Clarks boots

To stay warm on my commute, I threw a LOFT cardigan on over it …

I really love this dress because, let’s be honest, it looks like something Joan Holloway would wear on Mad Men.

And obviously I had to accent the whole ’60s look by giving my eyes a quick cat eye with my favorite Buxom eyeliner … it has a flat tip applicator, making it completely and totally foolproof.
