Trend : Polka Dots and Patent

The Vintage Contessa SPOTS out Fall's trends...

The new "spot on" trend (couldn’t resist) is POLKA DOTS. What a great combo, the nostalgia of patent and polka dots? Just last week Who What Wear showed celebs wearing the trend. 

Marilyns polka dots are the most memorable of all polka dots in my mind.

Bridget Bardot made polka dot pants looks sexy.

Carrie Bradshaw rarely wore polka dots, but when she did, she pulled off another whimsey look.

Catherine Deneuve showed her discreet charm in a polka dot skirt.

I spotted a fab vintage style ad for Kate Spade with a black dress, white polka dots and shocking pink leather gloves with a shocking pink underlay. How utterly 1950’s retro? And the name of the bag in the ad… The Kennedy Bag, with a bow. I wonder what Kennedy she is channeling? Hmmm…,default,pd.html
