A friend and I often talk about how we want to be bolder about mixing patterns, and put unconventional fabrics and prints together. This is what I've tried to experiment with in this outfit. Lace. Polka Dots. Lots of dots.
You'll notice that polka dots on my top are a much smaller than the dots on my tights. But I've also worn pearl earrings, a pearl brooch as a belt buckle, and a bracelet with pearls, all to emphasize the dots.

Years ago, while Chris and I were on an artists tour, we met an artist, who had a fantastic collection of paintings where the paint was put on canvas in haphazard patterns, with tiny solid white circles scattered around. The paint in the background looked like it was flying, zipping, speeding. But the circles and dots were still and calm. The painter said that she had 'recently discovered the dot' and was using that symbol in her collection. She had fallen in love with the dot. And who can blame her? Calm and still in her paintings. Feminine and fun in fashion. Everyone needs to discover the dot.
