The Black and white polka dot skirt

black and white polka dot skirt styling outfit idea 1

I recently purchased this black and white polka dot skirt from Amazon. It’s only $16.99 which is pretty cheap; but it turned out to be a surprisingly decent quality for the price. By decent quality I mean it’s well enough made and looks good enough to be worn out of the house. But no one’s going to think you purchased it as SAKs or anything.

Today I decided to experiment with styling the skirt. I paired it with the Michael Kors blouse that I purchased from Macy’s a few months ago. (Shop Michael Kors at Macys)

I accessorized with a broad black belt. For jewelry I went with a faux pearl bracelet and faux pearl necklace. And for footwear I went with simple black pumps. Had I included a bag I might have gone for a black clutch or a white clutch or maybe a mixture of black and white.

I think I like this outfit quite a bit. It’s simple and easy. Just a black blouse with a black and white polka dot skirt belted at the waist.

Rating the Black and white polka dot skirt

I’d give this skirt an overall 4.0 rating. I can’t find much to fault. It’s a cheap skirt so I have to grade it according to what it cost. And for a skirt that costs under $20 it’s pretty well made. The material isn’t flimsy. It’s partially lined and you can’t see through it. It fits well. (Find it on Amazon)

I read some of the poor reviews and based on my experience with the skirt so far I can’t relate. I don’t think it looks like it was made in someone’s kitchen. I didn’t iron it (probably should have) so I don’t know if the customer is right who complained that after she steam-ironed hers the black ran all over the white.

Let’s face it, there’s a reason vendors can afford to sell these items at such low prices. When you buy cheap things you can usually expect poor quality because the manufacturers aren’t spending tons of money to produce high quality good they can turn around and sell for pittance. If the high end guys are cutting corners you can be sure the manufacturers who are making merchandise catered to poor folks are doing even worse. So for the price the quality of this skirt far exceeds my expectations.

Singer songwriter Adelamonica AKA Avenue Sixty editor in chief. Writing as Monica for The Monica Archives. Writing has always been one of my passions. In fact, when I was a teenager, I used to tell people they should remember my name, because I was going to become a famous author. I used to live to write and write to live--not in the sense of writing for income but writing to combat depression and to feel a sense of purpose. I've written novels, poems, articles and essays that I tried unsuccessfully to get published over many years starting in my teens. When I discovered blogging several ages ago, I turned to that avenue as a means of doing what I love without having to worry about publishers and their rejection letters. Modeling is also something I have always enjoyed and something I wanted very badly to do as a teenager. So badly that I used to lie and tell people I was a model. I would carry around a large portfolio style photo album and claim it was my modeling portfolio. But, as with my writing, the people with the power to make my modeling dreams come true saw nothing in me that made them stop me in the streets of New York to offer me a modeling contract with their agency. So when I discovered the ability to photograph my own self (before cell phones and selfies) I took up a hobby of pretend modeling at home and that hobby has remained with me throughout my life as a form of self expression and self therapy. I ask that you kindly excuse my lack of worldliness and any instances where I demonstrate lack of tact or lack of knowledge and even lack of basic intelligence in my writing and posing. I'm just here trying to have a little fun doing the things that make me happy. I'm just an average human for whom writing and posing and singing and dancing and the other things I do are ways I express myself and keep myself going on this ever challenging journey of life. I hope you will find something even remotely useful or interesting in the things I share.
