This article was written for the love of polka dotted and spotted dresses, especially the brown and white dress worn in the 1990 film Pretty Woman…
One of the cutest movies that Julie Roberts has starred in is Pretty Woman, which costarred the dashing Richard Gere. In the movie, Roberts’ character, Vivian Ward, wore a sleeveless brown and white polka dotted dress when she attended horse racing.
Vivian accessorized the dress with white gloves, a white hat with a matching polka dotted band, a white shoulderbag with brown leather trim and a brown leather belt. The look on slim Julia Roberts was stunning! Julia’s dangling white pearl earrings paired extremely well with the white spots as well.
I was lucky to recently find a chocolate brown and white spotted dress with a deep V neckline and gathering up-front, which looks better on me than a high-necked one like Roberts had in the movie. But the look is essentially the same.
I look at my brown and white spotted dress, which I absolutely love and makes me feel special and that also gets pleased looks from people and thought it would be a great idea to seek out accessories that will go with the dress – I need to wear it more often!
White or cream pearls definitely – without question – and perhaps something in cream mother of pearl. I found strands of white pearls and plain white pearl studs that would undoubtedly go but I realized that I also had a rather dramatic mother of pearl necklace that was very Polynesian looking.
I had also repurposed and created a pearl button necklace as well as a cherub and pearl drop necklace with pearls. See my slideshow to see what I’m talking about. Just some suggestions on how to accessorize your Pretty Woman dress… Enjoy the slideshow!
Oh, by the way, my dress was found at a local discount department store in Atlanta by chance, under $20, but you know how it goes if you try to find another one in person – it’s really hit or miss. It’s always much better to seek out via the Internet. Happy hunting!
