Dotted


When I was 9 my favourite dress was a white 50s ball gown with little green dots. I would put it on and go out dancing secretly under the trees… (that’s the kind of romantic child I was, dancing with the fairies). But when I grew up dots become the epitome of uncoolness – too 50s, too sweet... That was until I saw Luella’s spring 2010 collection (yes, ladies and gentlemen, please fast backward, I’m still looking at spring 2010, I told you I was slow). A collection full of dots, pastels and 50s cuts – but sooo COOL!

How do you feel about dots? Love them or hate them?


I could only find one dotted blouse in my wardrobe. But my lovely friend Kate (who unashamedly loves dots) lent me her cardigan. And since I just can't model dots I asked Sarah.

blouse: new look, cardigan: john lewis

I love dots! They are very 50s, but that's why I love them - it's my favourite fashion era. :)

I'm the same as you, I always keep returning to the previous (actual) season.

Super lovely photos.

I love dots - and the way you wear them is absolutely stunning, Sabine! It's a shame I don't own more spotty styles myself. Loving your kitty, by the way!! :)

LOVE the dots! I have two vintage couture pieces that just came in that look similar and I have to stop myself from taking them home!

i'm a big fan of spots. there's something so playful and whimsical about them. you can't be too serious when you're wearing polka dots!

The dots are fantastic! Though in truth, for me, it really depends on the colors at play - sadly, not all dots are beautiful ;).

Clare said...

Polks dots are one of my total faves! I love this post and how your model's red hair perfectly contrasts with the black and white of your cat and the dots!! So beautiful!

Yes isn’t it funny that we are not yet out of this winter and we are already focusing on next winter! I do love the combination of sheer big dots against the smaller dots on the skirt. And the polka dot jumper is brilliant too. *waves at the tuxedo cat*

I love polka dots and the whole fifties look for private life. Interestingly for my job I prefer stripes.

Thanks for visiting and commenting on my blog.

I absolutely adore polka dots. i think black and white polka dots is just about the most timless combination in print there is. I have a gorgeous blouse with big white polka dots on black silk. any time I wear it, I get tones of compliments. Of course, I also top it with polka dot fascinator hat and perfect red lipstick! :-) The pictures are absolutely fantastic. :-)

But there are people like my sis who hate dots and stripes! She's weird:P

What a stunning post, Sabine!
Even your little sweet Mietzekatze has the perfect look
for your photo ;)
Say a little "hello" to her ;)

The first photo is so adorable with the different dots
and the dots in the back!!!

I remember that back in the 80ths there was an outfit with "overloaded dots" ;)... dotted sandals, dotted over the knee socks and a dotted skirt and... hello... a dotted top ... aagh ;)

Liebe Grüße sende ich dir!!!
