"Haven't you already got a dress like that?" was his immediate reaction, which proves that men DO sometimes notice! This of course was one reason for the dithering as there are two similar polka dot dresses in my wardrobe, but the one above will be far more versatile, especially for our forthcoming holidays.
This is one of my other polka dot dresses. As you can see, the neckline is different, the dots are smaller and it's longer - well below my knees. Nothing like my new dress and not as flattering either. It may very well go into the recycling at the end of this summer, if not before, however it's very comfortable to wear, which is always a plus point with me!
I like polka dots and, because my skin is freckled, the slight pattern suits me. As well as three polka dot dresses (!!!) I have a blue and white polka dot top, which I also enjoy wearing. Another favourite pattern of mine is stripes, but I'm wary with floral patterns, which have a tendency to look too old lady on me. (I know, in many people's eyes I am an old lady at the advanced age of 66!) Do you like wearing patterns and, if so, which ones are your favourites?
To end on a slightly more serious note, many of us women of a certain age may experience spots before our eyes, also known as floaters. I went to my optician when I first experienced this a couple of years ago to have my eyes checked out, so I know it's nothing serious, although if the floaters get worse I also know to have them checked again. One of the many joys of getting older!
