Not only are polka dots one of this seasons hottest trends, they are my most favorite pattern! (Ok, ok, so it might be a tie with plaid...) The polka dot trend is extremely wearable and comes in all price points. Freshen up your look with a polka dot tee, shoe, sweater or accessory. Those of you who are a bit more daring, try a polka dot pair of jeans, a blazer or a skirt.
Here are my nominations for best polka dots 2012.
In the category of best polka dot t-shirt, the nominees are:
1. Gap Seamed Dot Tee
And the winner is: Urban Outfitters BDG Scoopneck Tee. The picture of Swift and Kennedy (how creeptastic is their relationship???) sealed the deal.
In the category of best polka dot sweater, the nominees are:
1. JCrew Factory Polka Dot Cardigan
And the winner is: The Old Navy Dot Sweater. For the price (under $25) you can not go wrong! Wear it with your colored skinnies and you've got a cute, trendy look.
In the category of best polka dot shoe, the nominees are:
1. Old Navy Polka Dot Flat
5. Madewell Sidewalk Skimmer in Polka Dot
And the winner is...JCrew Mila Dot-Print Ballet Flat. How cute are they????

1. Kate Spade Le Pavilion Iphone Case
Tell me, do you agree with the winners???
Go out there and get yourself some dots!
'Til next time,

A long overdue HELLO to you Suz on Style readers!!!! I have many, many fun blog post ideas so keep checking back to be part of the fun. First up, Ralph Lauren (AKA: the silver fox, and the creator of American prep) announced that the face of their new ad campaign is Robyn Lawley. Robin is a 23 year old Australian model who, at 6 ft 2 in, wears a size 12. Size 12 is the "average" size of the American woman. While, I would not call Ms. Lawley "plus-sized," I do applaud RL for breaking with tradition and using a more voluptuous model for their campaign. You be the judge...tell me, do you think Robyn Lawley is "plus-sized???" here.
