I consider Minnie Mouse a style icon. If she had a style blog, I would follow it. She is always properly dressed for whatever occasion is drawn out for her. Her pairing of bright colors and bold prints is so cute and smart. We've met several times in person and her wardrobe is a definite representation of her darling personality.
This red/white polka dot dress was an e-bay purchase quite a few months ago. It hung in my closet, unworn, waiting for the purchase of those great, yellow pumps. The outfit overall doesn't scream MINNIE MOUSE to me...I didn't want it to look like I was wearing a costume...but more like a little coincidence.
Now that this dress has been styled the way I originally intended, I feel like I can branch out to other colors and accessories. This dress has amazing re-mixing potential.
