New week has come, and the polka dot trend popped up everywhere on fashion blogs. Ever since I joined Bloglovin’ and Lookbook, I’ve been able to keep track of weekly trends much, much better!
Fashion is like karma – what goes around, comes around. Polka dots have been around several times, today is when they return.
Even for people like me, who refuse to buy new clothes, and shop consignment instead, trends are a big deal. And later on in the day, when I will head to my favorite Salvation Army with one of my girlfriends, I will be trying to spot some cute polka dots wear!
Polka dots originally remind me of clowns, and circus (hence the title of the blog post), but they can be a lot more graceful and feminine. I had a professor in college, who said that polka dots are very sexually appealing to men. So if you are looking for that special someone, may the polka dots help you!
In spite the fact that polka dots have been around for decades, there are plenty of designers, who included this fab print into their FALL 2011 collection.
Here is some from Marc Jacobs:
In spite of having a rather extensive clothing and accessory collection, I am 100% missing out on the polka dots. So last night, as I was preparing for the thrifting trip, gathering ideas from magazines and catalogues, I put “polka-dots” on the list!
We’ll see if I am lucky today! Hope to be, because I have a sweet 25% off coupon to use at the Salvation Army!
For those of you, who are in the same boat with me, and are completely missing out on the polka dots, here are some “must-haves” for this fall! Hurry, you only have a month and a half of fall left
If you are one of those who want to play it safe, but would still like to follow the trend, go for the scarf or a headband. For the ones who are more of a risk taker – go for the shirt! And crazies like me are going to end up in polka dots from head to toe
