My eyes got all anime-sized huge when I saw this polka-dot jumpsuit from across the room…
Oh, Anthropologie, I’ll never understand your mysterious powers. How did you make me think I could actually wear polka dots from head to toe and have it look totally legit? I think it has something to do with your music or the store’s lighting… I dunno. Or it’s some kind of weird fashion voodoo.
In theory I like this outfit by Whit Two ($168) a lot. It comes in petite and regular sizes, for one thing, so I wouldn’t have to hem the pant legs. Then there’s the polka dots, which to me are timeless, like stripes and leopard print.
And then there’s also the black and white angle (again, never goes out of style), and how the whole thing is a complete one-piece outfit, so you just throw it on and you’re freakin’ done.
I also get a ’40s screen siren vibe from it, which is a style I LOVE, and I was already making a mental list of all the matte red lipsticks I was gonna wear with it.
Then I tried it on…
When I zipped up the back in the dressing room and saw myself in the mirror, I actually said, “This is SO not happening,” before promptly cracking up, LOL!
You know how some outfits look totally fine from certain angles, but then when you face the mirror full on they just look wrong?
Yeah, instead of feeling like Bette Davis or Katherine Hepburn in it, I felt like I was about to emerge from a very small car with 12 very tiny clowns.
Hey, at least I can say I tried, right? Because you never know when it comes to clothes. Sometimes the things you think you’ll never wear end up being super cute.
Aaand sometimes they don’t.
Would you wear this black and white polka-dot jumpsuit? Inquiring minds want to know…
