Polka dot spin

Another hello! from a sweet ladylike me! :)

I was pretty sick these past two weeks, yet one evening I felt like I could stay home no more...
I wanted to picture this outfit in a bright sunlight, emphasizing its' summertime romance, but (naturally) by the time we managed to get ready, the sun was long gone ;)
Three items of my outfit are from a recent Asos order, which I reviewed earlier.
The skirt is no doubt the main character here. Absolute retro in terms of a cut, length, fabric and pattern!
The skirt is complimented by a top with frilled neckline and my newest clutch bag in the mode of "A novel" book with a tassel.
I've always had a 'cling' to the polka dots, but these particular ones are special due to their transparency. It can't be quite seen from the photos, but these work very good against the light.
A side comment about the men's reaction on the skirt: a male friend whom we accidently met, complimented my outfit saying he hadn't seen such a skirt before; whereas my beloved photographer at some stage asked me to lift it up and show more legs hidden beneath :)
Lesson learned: men love skirts, but it's the legs they love more.
These sunnies are pretty alike the ones my grandma still wears probably since the time this shape had been designed ;)
I wonder what comment she makes when she sees mine!
I was wearing:
  • Skirt - Asos, appr. 35 Eur
  • Top - Seppala, appr. 6 Eur
  • Shoes - Mosquitos/thrifted, appr. 9 Eur
  • Clutch - Asos, appr. 23 Eur
  • Sunglasses - Jeepers Peepers, appr. 6 Eur
  • Pendant & earrings - no name, gifted
Total cost of the outfit: appr. 77 Euro

I suppose it is about the right time to introduce a special category: "Stuff I Didn't Buy and Now Regret I Didn't"! Meet the first contestant: structured leather and suede python-look clutch bag by Supertrash. This bag has a contrast clasp on the front and a detachable shoulder strap. Noticed it online for 70 Eur (instead of original 200 Eur), but apparently was hesitating for too long...
