    I’m in love with that top photo! I’m so glad polka dots have made a comeback though I’d wear them to death regardless.

    I love the second look and the easy confidence of the wearer! She manages to be fashionable and put-together with a subtle sense of style. I love the pants she paired the shirt with too.

    the first image is really eye catchy. And the second is pretty and chic. I love them! Thank you for always sharing your photos with us!

    On a side note, I watch “Intel Visual Life – The Sartorialist” probably three times a month to keep me inspired.

    The sheer polka dot blouse is divine. Everything about her look is perfect. Exquisite restraint.

    Hm.. I saw this trend coming. However, I do agree with Madame M; these are lovely photos and I especially like the second one, but I was never a big fan of polka dots.

    I don’t think you can ever have too many polka dots. By the way, does anyone know where the word comes from? Wouldn’t have anything to do with the Bohemian dance, would it?

  21. Lauren

    September 26, 2011 at 9:56 pm

    Both are clever looks. The black tunic is especially chic – something I’d definitely wear.

    How timely, since I seem to be going through a polka dot phase lately. Love the polka dotted skirt and hose, they work so well together! Chic and cheeky! And the blouse in the second photo — I’d snap that up in a heartbeat.

    I have been looking for a polka dot top but they pretty much all look the same to me. Your black polka dot top is so unique. I love the subtleness of the dots! where did you get it from?

  44. Maria

    September 27, 2011 at 4:55 am

    Dots are totally the new stipes. Love the unexpected combination of spots on the tights and skirt.

    The first shot impressed me, the mix of black dots is sexy and retro. The shoes complete this beautiful capture. I am curious and exciting about the lady behind the “dots painting”

    The first capture is utterly fascinating, and the blouse in the second capture with the different sizing in dots is super chic.

    I think that this is just too much, in Italy we’re used to say: “A pattern should not be repeated, just one piece for every outfit”.

    Amazing photos. Gorgeous. I never thought dots could be sexy until I saw Stella McCartney’s dresses and these pictures.

    Great photos! love the top one!
    i like this trend very much the Palka dots are great!


  67. Elisabeth

    September 27, 2011 at 8:45 am

    To Frances V.: wikipedia says: “The pattern is named for the dance of the same name, making one suspect there is a connection linking the pattern to the dance. Instead, the name was settled upon merely because of the dance’s popularity at the time the pattern became fashionable. Many other products and fashions of the era also adopted the polka name”

    Love polka dots :)

    Dots Will Echo.
    And worn quite seductively by the woman in the top photo.
    The burlesque allusion by une chatte grise is spot on.

    Funny dots (1rst photo)versus elegant dots(2nd photo).I like both.

    OMG yes the dots are great but no one else is as excited about the Watch the Throne reference??? Scott is amazing for so many reasons but this is definitely one of the best posts ever…
