This is My Life

Did any of you ever see the early 90's movie This is My Life? It wasn't all that popular so it's quite likely you never saw it, but the main character is a stand-up comedian and her schtick is that she wears polka dots all the time. I kinda felt like her character today and I embraced the polka dots and incorporated them throughout the outfit.

Save for the shoes, this is a particularly budget outfit. The dress I purchased at Ross a few years ago and amazingly it's still in good shape. The tights and cropped jacket are both from Target, however the jacket is from the Luella Bartley Go line. Sigh, one day I will have a pretty Luella bag. I don't know if you can see, but the buttons on the jacket are pale pink. I love this jacket and have another one in green. Because of my shape, cropped jackets look so much better on me than jackets that go to my waist or {gulp} mid-hip.

The shoes are from my beloved Office, aren't they cute? Polka dots may not be my schtick but I sure do love em.


  1. You're adorable! I heart your shoes <3

  2. I adore those shoes! Love the outfit. Never saw the movie, but I love the story behind it and how you use it in your post. You hav a lovely blog, I am glad I stumbled upon it.

    p.s. Be sure to check out my lovely peruvian feather earring giveaway.


  3. I really like this outfit! I'm a bit of a polka dot fan myself...I want those shoes!!

    I don't think I've ever heard of that film...


  4. I loveeee polka dots! Super cute.

  5. Thank you all so much - I really appreciate it. I only wish the shoes were more comfortable than they are cause I'd wear them everyday if they were.

  6. ADORE those shoes! and the combo with the tights is great. I just wrote about how I love polka dots and then I saw your shoes and now I just want MORE polka dots. :)
