LOOKBOOK: RETRO POLKA-DOT BLOUSE TWO WAYS
Ever felt like you were sinking? Like you were stuck in a situation but could not get out? You were dying silently and no one could hear you or feel your pain? Or maybe you were falling and could not get up?
Well, can I tell you something, My God knows what you’re going through. Jesus feels your pain, he understands. The truth is that God is not oblivious to the trials we go through, sometimes he is just waiting for us to ask him to step in and take charge (Mark 4:38-40). So why not ask him, stop stressing or trying to do it on your own because you can't, please let him in and watch your situation transform.
Now, here on this blog we believe in recycling clothes because aint no body trying to go broke tryin to look cute. The last time I styled this retro polka dot blouse (here) from The Vintage connection, I noted that I could think of several more ways of styling this versatile yet daring top. And you all know I love look-books so here we go.
For the first look I went for something quite corporate with one of my favourite wardrobe essentials, high waist trousers, styled here, here and here. I loved the colour pairing and decided to tie everything in with my red pumps.

In this second look I went all out with those prints guys with my polka-dot skirt styled here, if you missed my guide on how to rock prints (here and here) then check it out. I paired two contrasting colours to create a colour blocked mixed print look. Seeing the bold colours and patterns, I opted for my silver single sole heels and then my vintage belt to break the pattern. This look is definitely giving me major retro vibes and honestly I'm not quite sure if I would be bold enough to rock this look out.

How was your weekend by the way? I spent mine getting some much needed rest and finally watched the movie Hidden Figures. After which I proceeded to read Kachee Tee's post on lessons learnt from it, she hit the nail on the head big time. One of the best movies I've seen in a while and I definitely got some major old school fashion inspiration from the various styles.
What is your favourite look? Would you be bold enough to rock the mixed print look? How would you style this look differently? Have you watched Hidden Figures, thoughts?
