polka-dot-trend-1
Polka dots and yours truly have always been on friendly terms: The quirky pattern has seen us through our London Mod phase as well as the subtler swiss-dot obsession we'll never quite get over. However, recent sightings of some super-sized dots at Marc by Marc and Luella has us rethinking said fondness. Part of us digs the cheekiness, but we can't help detect a certain Bozo vibe, too. So, our loyal trend-setters, we ask you: Would you rock these oversized spots or leave them to the seasoned circus professionals?
