I am really into polka dots and would like to keep it modern. any thoughts?



Polka dots always a favorite design motif just make people happy. I think the modernity is in the mix, wear them where they are least expected, on lingerie peeking out of a crisp starched white blouse or as accessories with bold print polka dot jewelry or a large print on the outside small contrast dot print on the lining of a cute fabric handbag. Another choice is to go bold and mix different size polka prints together from large to tiny. Make yourself happy and wearing polka dots you will always receive smiles and who doesn't love a great smile.
