Spots Greater Than Stripes

I'm not a pattern person, my wardrobe is mainly built with solid blocks of colour: black, brown, navy blue, and gray. But if you peer close enough you'll see I have a fondness for polka dots. Admittedly, spots can come across as a little childish but paired correctly they can be cute without being creepy. Stripes just don't do it for me. They're not fun the way polka dots are. Spots will always be > stripes.

  1. I have somehow always stayed away from dots! I think the "dots-make-you-look-bigger" thought has stuck with me and I definitely don't need any thing to make me look bigger than I am already! :P I am a solid (mostly pastels) colors person as well and I am probably going to stick with that except for an occasional striped shirt/top thrown in! :-)

    Definately agree with spots over stripes! Although I think I have even quantities of both in my wardrobe.

  6. Stripes all the way. I'm just not a spots person at all, haha!
    Your new design is great! Although I do think that your last one was a little more unique.

  10. i love stripes but spots are SO MUCH BETTER and i pretty much always favour polka dots over stripes. i think one of the keys to them not looking childish is size. ones that are huge seem to look more childlike in my opinion, but the ones that are smaller or more sparse seem to look more sophisticated. (almost typed 'sophiesticated', ha!)

  16. Yes polka dots! It got to the point for me where I had to ban myself from buying them for a while because I already had polka dots on just about every type of garment. I love stripes too, but really only for shirts, whereas I will happily do dots on anything and everything!

  29. Ahh, shame you feel that about my new layout. I'm into it. I think it's still unique (I code all my layouts myself) I just felt the other one was a little bland.. it didn't really POP, y'know? :))

  33. I don't own a single piece of striped clothing.. I just don't suit them I guess.

  34. Haha, true.. but I've heard the same about stripes too! I think it all depends on how you wear them :))

  38. Polka dots are the best! Dress it up, casual it down... sweet but still with a bit of edge. It's a winner!
