The Dots Problem

Here is the thing about fashion: it is always changing soo fast, it will make your heart ache (think about all those last year clothes in your messy closet) and your brain confused (buying three to four magazines which are telling different trends and different designers) (that’s me). Just like this polkadot trend. I just begin to love it when my friend told me that polkadot is way too old. Maybe she is right. This is a two-years (or a year?) ago trend and people will be ashamed to be caught wearing polkadot. Euh, soo.. last season! Maybe they’re right. Maybe this is the universal way to say that you are old and left-behind. I feel… pathetic… and dramatic at the same time.

But I still lo-ve… this trend! I can pretend that i am liking a vintage trend, it is cheating but I am also considering what’s left from my dignity. Okay, polkadot. It’s vintage, people! It’s cool! And you don’t have to try really hard to make this trend (or pattern because polkadot is NOT a trend anymore) (read the forst paragraph) works on your body.

All you need to do is put on one polkadot item or maybe jumpsuit or dress like in the collage (it’s Karl Lagerfeld and don’t ask the price! I am sure you can find something cheaper in Zara or Forever 21) and mix it with something chic and netral. My choice falls for this super fierce Dsquared2 biker boots, which are just sick! Accessories aren’t really necessary because the dots can be considered the ‘accessorie’, but I couldn’t resist having the spiky necklace by Eastern Mystic-whatever-punk. Simple and feminine and punk at the same time, how can I say no?

What do you think? Is it too late to rock the polkadot trend?
