A Soft Spot for Polka Dots

To borrow an adjective from Project Runway winner Christian (he so deserved to win!!) - polka dots are fierce. Just look at the model above - pair those typically innocent dots with killer red heels, diva high-waist shorts and a bright yellow patent clutch, and the result is most definitely fierce. Polka dots are a perennial springtime trend, but this time around, don't make your polka dots cutesy or frilly or sweet - make them fierce. Grrr!
