The first shot is particualrly wonderful. Love the colours and the mix.


Blogger beths said ... (9:04 AM) : 

One must take care not to let dots become dowdy-looking (center photo). Woman in the top photo nails it with tailoring, quality fabric, blouse, and lipstick!

Anonymous Miss Tongue said ... (9:36 AM) : 

Beautiful ladies. Where do they buy their clothes? And having the hair up like they do, adds to their stylishness. I like!


Blogger hp said ... (9:40 AM) : 

Love the 3rd piece of burgundy with white polka dots! I don't see this colour combination so often.

And I NEVER knew dots and stripes could EVER work together! But the 2nd piece...hmmm, too many dots for me.


Blogger La_Flaneuse said ... (9:40 AM) : 

Love how you captured this pattern! From the subtle pop out collar to the bold head to toe...fabulous!



Blogger Ursula Manning said ... (9:40 AM) : 

Love these combinations!!


Blogger Fashion Is Passion by Poison said ... (9:43 AM) : 

I'm a fan of poker dots!

Interesting mixes. First one is my fav. Slowly it is growing on me.


Blogger The Wh0le Story said ... (9:47 AM) : 

That first outfit is so brilliant. And that 3rd one looks like a comfy, beautiful dream :o)


Blogger Recycle Boutique said ... (9:56 AM) :

Blogger caribbelle said ... (10:01 AM) :

Blogger Sophie Delphis said ... (10:05 AM) : 

Stripes and polka dots are two of my great weaknesses...


Blogger Sabrina Tassini said ... (10:06 AM) : 

i love the last one!!wonderful!


Blogger Mary said ... (10:07 AM) : 

Love the first combo but that last pic is perfect, real clothes for real women pulled together perfectly - off to find a blouse like that!


Blogger Cynthia Fox-Giddens said ... (10:10 AM) :

All lovely. The one at the top is so, so dashing. Thanx!


Blogger The Wild Fairy said ... (10:49 AM) : 

These are so late 1970's, early '80's! But, somehow, they manage to look much fresher and nicer looking now! Lovely photos. ~Siobhan


Blogger Gabrielle Pascua said ... (10:49 AM) : 

A la Marc Jacobs, no doubt! So au courant!

These photos are so charming and one could capture their personalities as you do!

Blogger sarah said ... (10:49 AM) : 

aww i love the dots! these women all look so chic.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:56 AM) : 

Love, love, love the first image! So inspired to try clashing my patterned clothing as well!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (10:58 AM) : 

top pic love a PJ look she has great taste


Blogger I'm a girl said ... (10:58 AM) : 

Jersy camel, con camisa de lunares! increible, me encanta!


Blogger The Fashion Camera said ... (11:09 AM) : 

Particularly love the first pic - it's not easy to match stripes and dots and she has pulled it off magnificently. The softness of the fabrics help.

Again, well done on the excellent composition and capturing "the moment" of these women. I wrote that article about your uncanny ability in my blog. Check it out. :-)


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:12 AM) : 

Absolutely beautiful photos, and colors- However the actually outfits look a bit tacky to me. I don't know if its the spots, or the arrangements that remind me of thrift store polyester goods from the late seventies early eighties. Just a thought!


Blogger The Fancy Teacup said ... (11:15 AM) : 

Dots with stripes? Wow, she effortlessly pulled that off. Each of the outfits looks so ladylike and demure.
much love.


Anonymous T H E F A T T A C K said ... (11:27 AM) : 

I love dots. One of the best prints ever.


Blogger Ms. Magor said ... (11:30 AM) : 



Blogger LE CALZATURE said ... (11:50 AM) : 

The are all beautiful, feminine...


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (11:54 AM) : 

I normally don't like polka dots, but I think the pattern and colour of the blouse in third photo provides a wonderful accent to her outfit.


Blogger c.o.a said ... (11:57 AM) : 

In love with these looks!


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (12:01 PM) : 

I love polka dots but none of these combinations looks appealing to me. I think these pix pretty much sum up what women normally do with this print: they either go over-the-top (pic 1), or create cliche outfits (ultra-feminine like on pic 2 or grandma-ish like on pic 3). The purple shirt on the last pic looks promising, though.


Anonymous Ururu Kaigo said ... (12:01 PM) :

Your blog this days really has make my evenings, great people, great dots, LOVE IT!! congratulations!!

I love the use of pattern on pattern in the first pic...fantastique! also love the mixing of pattern and textures in pics 2 & 3, very effective.

I think i'll always love polka dots :)

Beautiful pics...

Thks for the pic at Balmain show.. ;)))


Anonymous Best of Beehive said ... (12:25 PM) : 

I the shirt in the first one. And I'm glad to see polka dots worn effectively and not being bludgeoned over the head with them.


Blogger the coolbirth kid said ... (12:27 PM) : 

i love these women you've photographed!
in particular,
i rather like the oatmeal-y jacket with fur sleeves.


Blogger Unknown said ... (12:34 PM) : 

OMG! Risky, daring and totally perfect! Polka dots and stripes in browns and blues...LOVE! Just been inspired!


Blogger Christelle Jouvel said ... (12:52 PM) :

I need dots and spots NOW.


Anonymous Macha said ... (1:25 PM) : 

Des pois des pois des pois ! Comme au défilé Marc Jacobs de l'hiver prochain... Ces demoiselles sont donc en avance sur leur saison !

Some peas, some spot, and both of them ! As in the Marc Jacobs' fashion show for the next winter... These ladies are ahead of their season !


Blogger Unknown said ... (1:32 PM) : 

de jolies tenues très chics :)

I love polka dots, always have. I used to have a midnight blue polka dotted shirt that I wore until it wore out. But it was the '70's...


Blogger Scorpion Disco said ... (1:49 PM) : 

Spotted! Love it. I wore big retro polka dots this weekend on a winter beach trip.

j'adore!! My friends don't get it when I show up in mixed prints...little do they know! It's hot stuff! :D


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (3:07 PM) : 

I have been looking everywhere for a GOOD Swiss dot oxford shirt. It seems like the kind of thing Marc Jacobs would make, but I am still waiting. All I can find is K-Mart.

Chloe Sevigny wore a magnificent Isaac Mizrahi Swiss dot gown to the day time Emmys in 2010. It was the best red carpet look I'd seen in years. So fresh.


Blogger Amy Creyer said ... (3:14 PM) : 

Print mixing is one of my favorite styling techniques. I love when you create post using different people's photos centered on a theme.

Great photos, as always.

That first outfit is PERFECT! and yet I never would have thought to put those together myself. Simple stunning.


Blogger KimChicSisters said ... (10:32 PM) :

Blogger Ashley said ... (12:56 AM) : 

It's always great to see fashion from a man's point of view. I'm so used to seeing it through a woman's pair of glasses, but this is definitely a breath of fresh air

I love how these women make mixing patterns and textures look so effortless - Not just the clothes, but their hair and make up, not too fussy. It's inspiring.

that first look is ingenious, totally inspired to try a similar look

J'aime ce style.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:17 PM) : 

After looking at many of your photos of collections, and then seeing this series of people on the street--vibrant, smiling, warm...I must admit to finding the street photos the ones I am continually drawn to. People expressing themselves through their clothing choices and not just a single person's vision displayed on models devoid of expression is your strength and certainly my favorite part of this blog.


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:29 PM) : 

very nice. I especially like the detail on the clutch


Anonymous Anonymous said ... (7:36 PM) : 

I LOVE, I LOVE!! Polka dots are my absolute favourite pattern. Can't get enough of them and they never fail to knock me out.

What a lovely little series. And I've never - in real life or online - seen Caroline Issa (top) looking anything other than fun and perfectly put together. This is a woman with that elusive innate sense of style.

Sorry. The first person looked great but I was really referring to the second person before! LOL


Anonymous ak said ... (9:45 PM) : 

Oh! My apologies, I'm so silly. I meant the THIRD person was who I was referring too from many comments ago! LOL ha ha haaaaa xD It's late where I am!


Blogger Gina A. said ... (5:27 AM) : 

Two of my favorites: polka dots and stripes! Gorgeous.


Anonymous Barbara said ... (5:42 AM) : 

I like the first pic! It's so hard to mix stripes with dots. The other day I bought a dress with stripes (similar to this one: )
The thing is: I always wear it a jeans jacket, it's so normal... I want to find a more interesting a creative style. Your blog is so inspiring!

Ciao from a Brazilian in Italy :)

Hi, does anybody know who's the designer of the first outfit?


Anonymous diaboliqueguan said ... (6:39 AM) : 

Thanks to Rei Kawakubo, everyone is just on domino-dots effect. People should just wear Comme des Garcon, instead of the rip-offs.
