Rock A Dotty Midi Dress After 50: Visible Monday

Rock a dotty midi dress after 50 . I do believe we should wear what we love, and what makes us feel good at any age. A dotty midi dress, chunky boots, sassy red lipstick, whatever makes you feel uniquely you.

Welcome to Visible Monday. If you want to participate, it’s so easy: just go to the bottom of this post for the how-to. Link back to Not Dead Yet Style if you like – we’re on Easy Does It “rules” now!

This dotty midi dress is a treat to wear. It doesn’t grab anything, it can be made dressy or casual, and it floats in the breeze. It’s by Anthropologie, (sim) and part of my November rental package from Nuuly. I think I’ll rent it again in a different color, because it is a delight to wear.

Blowing a kiss to my husband/photographer, whom I’ve had the pleasure of being attached to for 27 years. Pick the right guy, and life is easier.

A gray sky makes the perfect moody background. And a bright pendant, from the Dali Museum in St. Petersburg, adds the needed spot of color. It’s starting to cool down just a bit in Central Florida, but no outerwear is needed. Darn, I just bought the most excellent trench from Vetta, and can’t wait to wear it.

Kitty wears a lifelike plant scarf, and never complains. My fluffy hair is via a blonde wig by Gabor that I made into a topper for more comfort. See how to do it here.
Here’s my new trench coat. It’s lightweight and the sleeves zip off to make a sleeveless vest. Great over a midi dress or jeans.

  3. Patti, this dress is fabulous on you! I was in Italy this past summer and polka dots were everywhere! I have a monthly subscription with Rent the Runway which I love. How do you like Nuuly? I love hearing about other subscription options. I tried New York & Company which didn’t work well for my lifestyle. Another one I’m hearing about is Armoire. I’d love to know your thoughts!
    Thanks for the link up!

    • Good morning, Suzanne and thanks for coming by! Nuuly has been good for me – most of the clothes have that boho-chic Anthropologie vibe, and there are good basics too. Not much corporate or super-dressy. The price is nice at $88/month for six pieces; buy them or return them in a month. Check them out at their site, and have a wonderful Monday! xox
