I'm a fan of the show "New Girl," namely because I have always had a crush on Zooey Deschanel and partly because the Schmidt character on the show can make me laugh out loud. I have always loved Zooey's style on the show too, and on one episode, she gave one of the most amazing speeches. She's talking to this sophisticated, sleek lawyer woman who lives in black suits and says:
I brake for birds. I rock a lot of polka dots. I have touched glitter in the last 24 hours. I spend my entire day talking to children. And I find it fundamentally strange that you're not a dessert person. That's just weird, and it freaks me out. And I'm sorry I don't talk like Murphy Brown. And I hate your pantsuit. I wish it had ribbons on it or something to make it just slightly cuter. And that doesn't mean I'm not smart and tough and strong.
This speech made me laugh out loud, and I felt empowered because I too rock a LOT of polka dots and hate boring black pantsuits (that I have to wear far too often at work). The world needs more polka dots! I do my part...see here, here, here, and here. They're just FUN. I also particularly love a black and white polka dot because it becomes more of a neutral and you can wear it with almost anything. I am loving this black-and-white-top-colored-skinnies look and plan to keep mixing and matching my colored jeans with various monochromatic tops as I start transitioning to my spring wear.
Do you rock the dot?
