I Love BJs

I have yet to wear this amazingly cute polka dotted skirt I scored at Buffalo Exchange while excitedly scouring Haight St. in San Francisco. I immediately loved it because of its' slightly larger-than-usual polka dots and the way it flares out a la 50's style; not to mention it was twelve dollars, which is definitely Dannie price Baybee!

Originally I had planned on wearing it sock hop/grease style complete with a pink monagrammed neck scarf and frilly, lace bobby socks. I never debuted it though because something about that ensemble just didn't feel right to me. The fact that the skirt was polka dotted made the sockhop theme feel too expeccted and unoriginal. However, leave it to the queen of creativity, Miss Betsey Johnson to hugely inspire me and give me a whole new outlook on this fun and flirty piece!

As I watched a video from Betsey Johnson's Spring '08 RTW show last night, I sat mesmerized and excited, inspired to the core by her fun, dollhouse, glamour Barbie designs! I am now completely planning on wearing the skirt with my black, deliciously oversized Hello Kitty bow instead, so much more fun and fresh, no? However, I'm still not sure about what top to rock with it, suggestions are welcome :)) I'm thinking of a bright colored something or a graphic top in order to amp up the otherwise simply black and white ensemble, hmmm...Photobucket
