Timeless Polka Dots!

There is somethings cheerful about the polka dots! They make me happy and hopeful. Whether it is vintage or modern, this ageless and timeless pattern looks great on everybody - from a 2 year old to an octogenarian! I can not imagine any time or occasion where one can not wear polka dots! May be not on their wedding, but give it some time:-)

Since the beginning of their popularity in 1873 (when for the first time Godey Magazine - a 'Lady's Magazine' published in Philadelphia - used the term), polka dots have come a long way. Now polka dot is not 'just cute' but sophisticated enough to be seen on red carpets, runways, and evening parties!

Mrs Obama recently wore polka dot dresses and looked classy! For the TV interview with Matt Lauer, she wore a $34.95 H&M dress and made it look haute couture! (Although she customized the dress, by adding sleeves)

While black and white polka dots are my all time favorite, I love the fun element of colorful dots..Fire the cuteness engine with these polka dot dresses!
