kingchic said...

Polka dots are such a fun pattern. Though it can be difficult to make the pattern appear sophisticated, some designers managed to succeed. I think we ALL remember Michael Kors playing with polka dots for his S/S09 collection, which was very flirty and fun. Frida at Gucci used dots for F/W for some tunic dresses and minis, which managed to really work since the dots were oversized. I'm feeling dotty now!
