Retro Round - Love for Polka Dots

After a recent trip to Bali and Malacca in Malaysia(during our KL trip) we have been going crazy about Vintage & Retro stuffs. We have collected quite a lot of home decor stuff too which has a vintage charm to it.That is when it struck to my husband that I could create a retro based look on my blog. 
So what is the first thing that comes to our mind when you think of retro or vintage ? For me it is polka dots and so here are a number of polka dot items that I picked & used to create various retro looks. I took inspiration from the internet especially concentrating on Bollywood looks and here I have recreated some of them. I went on a crazy search for inspirations on Pinterest, Google images & magazines & finally decided on 3 looks that I would come up with.

I then started collecting all the required things like dresses, hair accessories, scarves and retro glasses. Some of them were already there with me but I did not know how to work with them. The internet did help me with ideas on how to style polka dot dresses & accessories.

Look No 1 : The Polka Dot top & plain pants , inspired by Priyanka Chopra's outfit

The polka dot top is from Chinatown, Singapore and it costs SGD 12. The leggings are from Forever 21 and it costs SGD 7. I had got these sunglasses from Singapore way back in 2013 when I had been here as a tourist. I also added a cute little polka dot bow that I got from Limeroad. I went in with a matte lipstick from Loreal - Lincoln Rose.
