red dots

red dots_1

I love dots. When I saw these shoes at a local op shop, I instantly thought of the lovely a cat of impossible colour, whose blue dotty shoes I have admired for ages. I knew I would be getting them! Seeing as I had dots on my feet, I thought more red dots in a scarf would be nice, too.

For their first outing, I wore them with my navy and white dress and red tights. The dress is from Kutazz, a small label in Queensland that my friend put me on to.They make the most amazing summer dresses, and I am trying to pick my next one! (And no, this isn't an ad for them :) though I am happy to sing their praises.) Hmmmm... just what will it be?

I love this all-red post! And polka dots too! It reminds me of all of these beautiful silk polka dot dresses that my mom used to wear back in the days when she was a model for artists and painters. You look so lovely.
