How to style ... Big Shot Dot Dress//J. Crew

So, I was lucky enough to snag a "nearly perfect" Big Shot Dot Dress (#1) from J. Crew last year, but unfortunately, it has never been out of my closet! GASP! I am not interested in passing on this beautiful dress, but I haven't really been able to wear it out yet, for whatever reason! It's a beautiful heavy cotton, and is lined :)

I have found that whenever I wanted a dotty dress, I have been reaching for my Scattered Dot Dress from J. Crew as well (#2) - it is more of a silk fabrication. For the last three weeks, I have been wearing it in the same outfit - with a black blazer and nude or black pumps.

I have found a blogger with the Big Shot Dot wearing it with brownish pumps (#3) - and I think my go to look was inspired by Kate (#4).

Does anyone have any styling suggestions for Big Dotty? I feel that it's just SO versatile I have NO idea what I'm doing with it! Is that crazy?!!! :D I'd love any suggestions you guys have!

    how sad that the big shot dot dress has not made it out of the closet....

    how about the following from recent acquisitions:

    born two tone pumps + navy waterfall cardi (swap pumps for knee high brown boots in fall/winter)

    le chateau pump in sand + red f21 blazer

    also...please forgive me for saying this...i think you need a new black jacket that actually fits--this would help you style the dress a la kate m.  have you lost weight during your internship?  i remember that jacket during your interview process.

    So sad.. why not? It's lovely I would pair it with a leather moto jacket to add a more trendy element!
