I have been in a love-hate relationship with polka dots, since I was a child. I still am. One of my first sartorial memories from my mom’s closet was a wonderful black and white polka dot dress- knee lenght, short sleeves, little turtle neck, with lace apliquet on the chest. Designed by my grandmother, it was wonderful! I absolutely loved that dress, and couldn’t wait to grow up to wear it. But then growing up, every piece of clothing in polka dot pattern I put on, made me look ridiculous, simply because polka dots were not that much in fashion and I was ridiculed by friends. So after a long low period with nothing polka dot in my closet, I started with small steps. First it was a little scarf, then a little applique detail, then a skirt and now I am back in love with the idea of a polka dot dress. I guess I found my own inner peace and don’t care about mocking, ridicule or what is in fashion per-say any more.
So recently I was looking for cool polka dot dresses, firmly decided to blog about this story and you can imagine who bewildered I was when I found a whole style report section on WWW for the polka-dots.
So after this inspiration from WWW, I assume polka dots are back in style. Black, white, red, small, large, full on dresses or simply a detail, polka dots are everywhere. So here are some dresses are strike my fancy, to replace the vintage mommy’s dress in my grown up life, until I dig through her closet and find if it is still in existence.
