Trend {Spot}ting...


The beautifully quirky Kate Spade image of the black balloon in a recent post has started me thinking about polka dots and their classic charm. I've always loved polka dots – almost as much as I love stripes. There's something so cheery about their cheeky playfulness. And if you think polka dots are just for  girls, well, Miss Sarah Jessica Parker shows that they can be downright sexy too. Spots have been huge in fashion and interiors this season, and although the trend may be waning, I think there's still room for some polka dot glamour this coming Australian summer.
