Hmmm…I’ve been seeing lots of polka dots out in blogland recently, and according to Mr. Webster, that means we are all losing it. Or we are just all so high on life (see: very enthusiastic) that we feel the need to slap some dots on everything we wear/carry/eat so that everyone else can join us in our insanity enthusiasm.
Or…perhaps polka dots are just fabulous.
I’m going with the latter (considering I just bought a new polka dot cardigan and I’d like to think of myself as stylish rather than insane. Although on some days…)
In other news, I really like ellipses…
Jentine of My Edit rocks the dots in tight form.
You can eat dots too. Speaking of which…Dippin’s Dots! (A trip to the mall food court may be in order this weekend. I need me some Dots.)
Bailey of Peppermint Bliss carries pocket-size polka dots.
Even Marc Jacobs likes polka dots. Pretty stoked that his Fall ’11 collection featured them so prominently…hoping Target/Forever 21/Old Navy/other-places-I-can-afford-to-shop will take note.

Um…presch much? (FYI-“presch” is high school slang for “precious.” I’m bringing it back.)

Not exactly my style, but I still like the idea of polka dots on shoes.
Loving the all-over polka dots on this dress. I used to have a red all-over polka dot dress, but I lost it….seriously, no clue where it is. (Get your minds out of the gutter…I’m pretty sure the laundry monster ate it.)
(P.S. These photos are from a shoot inspired by the love story of Paul and Julia Child…specifically the beautiful words from Paul, “You are the butter to my bread, the breath of my life – I love you my darling girl.” Makes me melt every time I watch Julie & Julia. You should definitely check out the rest of this lovely shoot here.)

And finally, polka dots aren’t just for girls.
