Photo Credit: 1, 2, 3 While reading through last month's Glamour Magazine, I noticed a stunning polka dot blouse on Blake Lively (pictured above-right). The top was unique, with everything sheer aside from the polka dots. I was then intrigued when I discovered a similar shirt on Emma Stone...

Miuccia Prada really made me fall in love with polka dots through her awesome, super girly Miu Miu S/S 2011 collection. While I can't afford the Miu Miu heels, I have to stock up on what's in my price league instead and these adorable polka dot pumps by Ivanka Trump certainly fall into latter...

dots returned to the S/S 2014 runway. At Burberry Prorsum they came in a modernized and bold way, while at Dolce & Gabbana and Moschino they appeared smaller in black and white or red – all aptly retro-inspired, especially given Moschino's special anniversary show. So cute, a real...

The resident Queen Blair Waldorf was her perfect ladylike self while working with Chuck to take down Bart Bass and find Serena in this pink and polka dot outfit. The perfect look for scheming and devising plans, copy Blair's outfit with a peplum polka dot blouse. Blair's sleeveless top is...

But her polka-dotted toenails? Whatever. Andrew Sullivan clearly thinks the nail art is tacky, and while it may not be the most professional of choices, she was at a state fair. Sure, she was campaigning (and not just eating fried butter) at the Iowa State Fair, but still. Whatever....
