Fall Vintage Polka Dots

I recently found this vintage polyester dress at Goodwill, and wore it last week to run a few errands/get things done. The cardigan one of my new favorites.

The camera didn't seem to focus well...probably on the wrong setting, as I grabbed it before heading out the door.

This dress has three large, white buttons on each cap-like sleeve. 
I like how there are lots of ways to accessorize a dress like this...but wanted to stay simple and wear the cardigan. I also appreciate the length of the dress.
The cardigan was found at a Salvation Army this summer. The seam up the sleeve had unraveled about 6 inches or so, and needed restitched...nothing too complicated...and so it was really cheap.  It's worth pointing out flaws at thrift store counters to ask if discounting it is a possibility. They almost always gladly discount the item.
I like the subtle print of the cardigan, and this pattern mix.
