From The Back Bayou

vintage polka dot dress

Who doesn't love a good theme party?  When a very close friend sent me an invite to his black and white birthday party I was immediately on the hunt for a perfect dress.  I checked though my favorite shops but I just wasn't finding exactly what I was looking for.  I then scoured the stores on Etsy and found this gem.  It's vintage, has boning, and was the perfect length.  I knew it had to be mine!  Jenny over at Back Bayou Vintage has such an eye for great vintage, it was difficult to restrain myself from buying a few things.  I'm trying to keep it in my closet until the day of the party but I keep putting it on so I can admire its perfection.  It's definitely love!

I've been sleep deprived for a week now.  Poor Bianca is cutting her two front teeth already (this is her third and fourth tooth) and our nights are sleepless.  She's cranky during the day but an absolute nightmare at night.  I feel so bad for her!  I have certain meds and such to help alleviate the pain but it seems like nothing lasts longer than an hour.  I very much feel like I'm not even living inside my body... If that makes any sense.  I know this will pass, but I'm certain that teething is worse than her newborn phase!  Until then I'll be rocking some pretty sweet under eye bags.



P.S. Today is the last day of my Flash Sale!  Click HERE to grab some goodies for $10 and under!


  1. Wow, you look gorgeous!! :) That dress is amazing on you, and I love it with the blue accents.
    Oh no, I hope she's done teething soon!!!

  2. This dress is so wonderful. I am envious of your tallness that you can wear this. It would be at my ankles, ugh! Also your shoes are quite wonderful. I love that they look like flats in the front. Magical shoes! And while I'm at it, I still can't figure out how you are so good at doing short hair (or any hair). I could learn a million tricks from you. Hope little Beyonce feels better soon :)

  3. Ahh this dress is wonderful! Such a great find. I love learning about new (to me) vintage shops on Etsy, so I'll have to check out Back Bayou. Hope Bianca lets you get some sleep soon, pretty mama. <3

  4. I love a polkadot dress, but this one with the turquoise accessories set against your pink hair is a real star, love it!! I've just pinned it onto my Fashion Inspiration board x

  5. Wow what a stunning dress! The colour combo of your hair and turquoise is so pretty.

    I hope you manage to get some sleep soon...that has to be hard on both of you.


  6. What a great find! You look stunning <3

    That sounds rough :c I hope she lets you sleep soon.

  7. I definitely love a chance to go to theme parties, and this dress is gorgeous on you!

  8. You look adorable in this dress!! I know I always say this, but you seriously never fail to have the best dresses!!

    Hopefully Bianca (and you) start to feel better and get more sleep soon.

  10. This is totally what I would want to wear to a black & white theme party! Just adorable, with the perfect twirl to it.

    Good luck with teething Bianca! I know that out-of-body feeling sleep deprivation can cause, it's the worst. 

  11. Oh no. I hope this phase passes quickly. I know exactly what you mean about not feeling like you're in your body after many all-nighters in college but luckily I was able to sleep in after a few days of hell. I wish you the best of luck!

    Also this dress. So pretty! What a great find! I think your pink hair is just perfect with it.


I read and appreciate every single comment!
