I found this linen dress and coat set at The Vintage Show back in February. Originally I planned to wear them together, but when I actually went to wear it, I wasn't sure I loved the pairing. It felt a little matchy matchy and fussy to me. So, I decided to style the coat both ways. I wore it with the yellow dress and a pop of polka dot tight, as well as with a polka dot frock and fishnets. I think I ended up liking the mix and match pairing a little bit better because it felt more modern and wearable. I thought this polka dot wall at the Children's Museum of the Arts in West Village would be the perfect backdrop to emphasize this mod look. Luckily it's in a pretty obscure location and there weren't many people around because I just changed right on the street so I could photograph both looks in one shot. Oh the things you can get away with in NYC.
