As I walked downstairs to say goodbye to the fellas before heading to my first Stella + Dot party, my husband asked me, "So, do stripes and polka dots go?" My reply, "They do today!" It turns our that my fellow party goers agreed! We all loved the mixed pattern combo.

Now, let's talk about this skirt. I am in LOVE with this skirt. I know I've been saying that a lot lately, but mean it every time I say it. I literally stalked this skirt the minute Banana Republic released their Marimekko collection. It immediately sold out online but that didn't stop me! I called flagship stores until I found the skirt in my size and it worked! I was assisted by the sweetest girl in San Francisco who was able to talk me into a maxi dress from the collection that I will blog about later. Talk about good being a good sales associate! However, it's not that hard to talk me into amazing pieces.
