I was totally stoked when I found this cute polka dot number on the Ashley Stewart website because I had been drooling over a similar look sported by Gwyn Stefani on my Pinterest for weeks.
However, as one might expect, my attempt to channel “Miss No Doubt” herself was not as easy as I thought.
First of all, Gwyn is flawless.
Second of all, since my dress came in navy and white rather than black and white, I fell into a common trap.
Red, white and blue goes great together, sure, but it doesn’t take much before you look like an Uncle Sam poster. Or like you’re making a political statement. (I’m not, btw)
Everything was going swell until I decided to grab my red clutch on the way out the door.
That’s when my Gwyn Stefani turned into a Kelly Kapowski.
But hey, I think we can all agree, there are worse people to look like!
What do you think? Do you like the Patriotic vibe or should I have tried a different accent color?
Love and Confidence,
