I love polka dots. Love. Like, I see an article of clothing, an accessory, or a polka-dotted pair of shoes, and something comes over me that I can’t explain. Ok I’ll try. It’s like a nostalgia plus an immense yearning plus an all-consuming joy, all of which stems from the adorable simplicity of polka dots. Of course I realize that this is not a typical reaction, but if you love polka dots like I do then I know you understand. Valentino, which usually channels exactly what I want at the exact moment in which I want it, has updated their website with the Spring/Summer 2013 polkadot-laden Pop Pois collection. I’m positively plotzing. The espadrilles are especially cute, the shoulder bag is iconic, and all pieces showcase white polka dots on bright pink/red or green/blue combinations. If you buy one thing for spring, please buy something spotted… and if you’re lucky enough to snag a Pop Pois piece, take good care of it. You’ll wear it forever.
