It seems that the floral trend is hitting it up big time this year as shown on the runways of Prabal Gurung, Peter Som, Oscar de la Renta, Mary Katrantzou, and to name a few. The floral trend has been constantly coming back throughout the years and i say, if it ain’t broke why fix it?
So yes, i am definitely embracing the floral trend in open arms!!! Now i just gotta wait for the beaming sun to come out again so i can get all girlie and dress up in my lovely floral dresses and skirts. The only question is, what sandals and bags should i buy to match the whole spring/summer look? Decisions, decisions, decisions…

Polka dots are for kids?!?!!? Well, think again!!! If you haven’t already noticed, polka dots were a big thing on the run way for the Spring and Fall 2011 trend. It’s actually one of my favorite trends as it’s a playful twist to an outfit, where it can be bold dots, small classy dots, or just colorful dots!!! The different styles of polka dot design is endless and varieties is definitely a good thing, right?
I absolutely fell in love with the polka dot style during the Moschino Spring 2011 Ready To Wear collection. It was bombarded with colors and looked oh sooo playful, in a chic way! I also came across the designer David Koma, who i have not heard of (yes, shame one me!). His 2011 Fall collection just simply caught my attention. His designs with polka dots was done in a fun manner without over doing it. I liked how the polka dots effect was done in a sophisticated style and having that femininity appeal, while still bringing color into it.
What about you? Which polka dot collections on the run way were your favorites?!??!!
