Guerilla polka dots

The dots are there, not organized like a regular army but spread out and lurking in the camouflage of some crosshatched blood-red flora, waiting for the right moment to burst forth in a visual attack of full polka-dot glory before slipping back into hiding. Except it's not quite blood red, it's more the color of Heinz ketchup. And it doesn't quite match the red stripes in the shirt (another $5 clearance shirt! This is is Merona from Target), which are a little more blue. The difference isn't really noticeable from more than ten feet away, so I deem this combination a partial success. To those co-workers who came close enough today to notice this unfortunate mismatch: Well, EXCUUUUUUUUSE ME!

The tie, by the way, is by Saint Michel. Sometimes it's hard to find a tie to match a multicolored shirt (and, as I've mentioned before, a solid tie simply will not do), so a two-colored tie is a good bet, especially if it has an interesting pattern. And this pattern is interesting, if nothing else.
