Polka Dots + Polka Dots

Thrifting Diva - Polka Dots Polka dots are certainly a retro style, but like all great retro styles, they all come back around for us to enjoy!  Fortunately with so many options available for spring, you are guaranteed to find a piece that fits your personal style, especially at your local thrift and consignment stores.  Thrifting Diva - Polka Dots This outfit features mixed prints with polka dots on top of polka dots.  I thrifted this Express polka dot shirt at AMVETs in San Diego for $4.00.  When I thrift, I tend to focus on patterns that jump out at me while browsing the aisles.  Polka dots are one such pattern that make me stop quickly and examine.
Thrifting Diva - Polka Dots Thrifting Diva - Polka Dots I paired the white polka dot shirt with black polka dot high-waisted shorts from Zara.  I got these shorts on sale, $9.99, and absolutely love the cut, and how they look on me.  Of course, a sale price of $9.99 for these beautiful shorts cannot be beaten.  Notice that the polka dots in these shorts are larger than the polka dots in the shirt.  I think the distinction makes the mixed pattern look even more interesting.

Thrifting Diva - Polka Dots Thrifting Diva - Polka Dots Completing the look is this vintage clutch that I got from Frock You Vintage in San Diego for $5, sunglasses from Goodwill, $1, and fringe earrings from Macy’s on clearance for $11.00.  A beautiful outfit, with a very affordable price tag!
Let me know if you have ever pattern mixed with different sets of polka dots.

    I love this outfit! The yellow is perfect for complementing the black & white! And I’m pretty envious that you can wear such a springy outfit. Here in Michigan it’s 20 degrees, lol.

    Hi Ayana! I am sooo excited that I found your blog post! I am also a huge thrifter and I just moved to San Diego from San Francisco last month. I was a little bummed to leave my favorite thrift stores behind but now thanks to your post I have a list of new places to explore. I can’t wait to check these out, thank you for sharing!
