Polka-Dot Summer Fashion



The Only Spot










Polka dots are everywhere this summer and rightfully so for this endless circle pattern is desired by all fashionistas.  This elegant dot has been a favorite since the mid-19th century and captured memorable attention when Miss America in 1926 sported a spotted swimsuit. Ever since then, dollops of white or black have been a classic and royal hit.  Whether in a top, pant, skirt or a classic navy polka-do-blue frock, these spots of joy connote happiness, sophistication and flirty fun. 

Or maybe in our minds each dot represents every event, friend or acquaintance we meet in this life?  Thus, the circles of  your life are represented beautifully.  To remain classic, choose black, blue, white or red fabric with little to medium dots versus big spots.   The effect is show stopping and unforgettable. Here are a few favorites to get the polka-dot magic started in your life.

"With just one polka dot, nothing can be achieved.  In the universe, there is the sun, the moon, the earth, and hundreds of millions of stars.  All of us live in the unfathomable mystery and infinitude of the universe.  Pursuing philosophy of the universe through art under such circumstances has led me to what I call stereotypical repetition." Yayoi Kusama

  Summer Ending "We cannot direct the wind. But we can adjust the sails." Aristotle Summer is winding down as the weather cools, leaves are turning into glorious hues and breathtaking flowers are slowly wilting.  You can feel the shift in the air. Embrace the pending change with anticipation for pumpkins, colors of red, gold and yellow, falling temperatures, spider webs and the end of summertime.  Once again, we long for cozy sweaters, boots, coats, scarves and apparel designated for a fall landscape. Additionally, we are gearing up again for another roller coaster autumn.  Many events, trips, world upsets, work environments and basic daily life is shifting with uncertainty.  Of course, we cannot predict the future, yet Covid remains intact.  Hopefully more will become vaccinated, which in turn, helps end the present and immediate crisis.  The virus will become endemic with perhaps less fear and instead similar to the annual flu vaccines. To put this is perspective, the Spani

"A Girls Best Friend"  Jewelry is equated to icing on a cake or a finale to a play or the ending of a scintillating novel. In other words, an outfit is just not complete without a dab of bling.   Whether wearing jeans, sporting work out gear, getting ready for work, an evening out or absolutely anything, a bauble of jewels is a necessity.  Or course, it is a juggling act because too many jewels makes one appear a bit desperate for attention.  You know the person, they walk into a room and everything from head to toe is sparkling and wiggling so that all is seen are the multitudes of  jewels rather than them.  The well dressed are always sporting minimal jewels.  Check out Golden Globes 75th - Fashion Highlights   for ideas from the red carpet.   The right amount is essential.
