I know, I know... another polka dot outfit. HOW ORIGINAL. BUT -- before you get your panties all up in a bunch, there are a few things about this polka-dot dress that make it more unique. There are cutouts as well as an intricate criss-cross laced back, which is why I really love this dress a lot. Come take a look at the details and the complete shoot, all the while getting the details on where you can find this beauty, along with a 10% discount code I'm offering! You can get this dress today for $45! So don't miss out, continue reading now!
Like I said, this black and white polka dot dress is retailed at $50.00 but with my code, you can shed a few bucks off. Apply 'SUZANNE10' for 10% off your purchase! Along with the details of the cutout and back, I also love the tie-around waist and give the dress more shape along with the ruffles, which brings any dress some lightness and playfulness. I had scouted a field here in New York City. YES. This shoot is in Manhattan! Goes to show you don't always have to travel to get those Instagram shots - but the bites I had gotten afterward we just as real! The day we shot this it was so humid and I had anxiety about my hair not cooperating with the weather conditions (thank God for Kérastase L'Incroyable Blowdry Heat Lotion) and while holding between frames and getting the shots, I had got bitten at least five times by pesky mosquitoes. Raise your hand if the 'skeeters' love y'all as much as they love me! ;P
I find prints to be difficult to photograph, especially if they're white because it can easily interrupt with the overall white balance of the photo (meaning the whites will look too washed out and you won't be able to see any texture) so it was important for me to use a good source of light to capture the gorgeousness of this dress! And I knew the sunflowers were perfect with this kind of print. What do you guys think? The black and white polka dot dress has definitely been a repeat offender this summer and I can assure you I'll be wearing this after Labor Day! Accessories here are minimal with a straw clutch and gold hoop earrings. Not shown are some cute black suede open-toe slides. And yes, ankles are my vulnerable spot with critters...
