Hey Sailor!

I found this blouse at The Sentimentalist and as much as I liked the polka dots and the shape, I was having difficulty figuring out how to style it.  I've been wearing a lot of black to work lately, so the other morning I dug out the blouse and paired with a black skirt, patterned stockings, and a beaded choker, and suddenly had the urge to utter the phrase, "Hey Sailor"
I'm sure it was the sassy stockings, but at least I wore them with low-heeled lace-up ankle boots and not 6 inch stiletto heels.   In addition to my Coreflex arm support, I'm wearing:
Polka dot blouse - The Sentimentalist
Joe Fresh skirt - Value Village
Beaded choker - Value Village
Ankle Boots - Neosens, purchased at From Mars

  2. I love the uniqueness of this combination. The pattern in the tights, the cute little booties and that polkadot retro blouse. I think the choker really sets it all off and puts it all in its place with attitude. It would be completely different and really not you if you'd worn this with a long gold chain necklace and white stiletto pumps. ;)

  3. I love this "Hey Sailor" outfit! The polka dots with the tights and choker are a brilliant mix. I like the dangling earrings too. I bet you purred all afternoon in this.

  4. I freaking love it, you look like a saucy saloon girl or can-can dancer. Those lace tights and booties just add sass and style. Look out men of London, there's a seriously hot chick out and about. xxx

  6. "Saucy saloon girl" - as usual, Vix nails it! And so have you, this works wonderfully. Love the loose shape of the blouse vs. the straight skirt, the polka dots vs. the patterned tights, the choker vs. the ankle boots. Love it! xxx

  9. The patterned hose with polka dots couldn't be a better mix. Sometimes the first thought about an outfit is intuitive, and what a fun thought this was!

  12. I love the dots - and the way you put it together with stockings gives an exciting mix that's not boring.

  13. If I saw you in the street I'd be saying "hey baby, fancy a coffee at a street cafe and a chat for about four hours straight?" I love the shoes you chose, I'm a big fan of getting the proportions right with skirt-length/tights/shoes ... this outfit is perfection!!! xoxoxoxoxoxo
