>> Fall 2011 Fashion Week has us seeing spots — but there's no need to call the doctor. We're talking about polka dots, swiss dots, and the ones that fall somewhere in between, as seen on Marc Jacobs, Diane von Furstenberg, and David Koma's runways. Mix together different sizes and colors for a perfectly clashed look, or stay chic in a one-piece ensemble. Can't wait until these masterpieces hit the racks? Check out what's in store right now.
Selma Blair reminded me so much of American dancer Louise Brooks when she wore Marc Jacobs's jeweled dot dress with her short bob at the designer's Fall '08 show at New York Fashion Week. Kate Moss, on the other hand, exudes a more modern, sexy vibe in the same dress, which she just wore at a party in Germany. One can't deny that both ladies are ultra stylish, but each gives off a completely different vibe. Selma is more demure and covered up in her slightly longer dress, while Kate is freely exposing her legs by hiking up the hemline. So, whose vibe are you digging more?
What attracts me to this Diane von Furstenberg Alexis Top ($99, originally $198), besides the rockin' discounted price, is how from afar, the print can pass for polka dots, but from up close, it's more like a fuzzy cotton ball. Oh, and of course, the sexy back doesn't hurt! Adding this piece to your collection is a must.
You undoubtedly remember the black polka dot Luella dress Cameron Diaz wore at the MTV Movie Awards. You did love it after all! Five months later, a skirt version has surfaced and is bound to make you giddy like it did to me.
This super-cute Luella Patti Polka Dot Skirt ($185) is ready to accompany you to your holiday parties and would look good bare legged or with tights. Thanks Luella for spreading a little preholiday cheer.
