Lust-Haves: Polka Face.

If you couldn't already tell, I am currently obsessed with patterns. First came printed pants, then came glitter and sparkles, and today my lovely readers, I share with you my never-ending love for polka dots. Polka dots are the chameleon of prints - it can lend itself to the creation of a lovely cocktail dress, or make an equally pretty day top. It seems like the world has the same love affair with the polka dot as me (oddly enough I don't feel cheated), with many designers incorporating this timeless print in their Fall/Winter 2011/12 showings. These designers have been so creative with this timeless pattern, showing us how to wear the dots in fresh, innovative ways.

Marc Jacobs

Exhibit B

Exhibit C
Diane von Furstenburg

Exhibit D
Stella McCartney

If I included every designer, I don't think I would be able to finish writing this post tonight. Personally, I love what Stella and Marc (yes we are on first-term basis with one another) have done with the good ol' polka dot, infusing it with a really modern and unexpected twist. 

Naturally, there have been many high-street and more affordable interpretations of this trend, which I can actually afford. Here's a few of what I am currently eyeing.
