Here are a few photos from my weekend stroll through Bloomingdale's:
Michael Kors black and white polka dot tote bags.
I especially love the white with black dots.
More Michael Kors totes in pretty solid colors with polka dot accent scarves!
Technically, coats are not accessories, but I almost embraced these beauties when I saw them. They are by Basler, a German company, and my new favorite clothing/coat brand. Sadly, these Spring/rain coats cost almost as much as my rent, but if they go on major markdown prepare to see me floating through Central Park wearing one. Normally, I prefer my dots in smaller doses, like on a bag or scarf, but I would make an exception for this statement coat.

Finally, I did a little digging in my jewelry armoire and pulled out this Joan Rivers Classics Collection pink polka dot enamel flower pin, which will be a perfect accent on jackets and sweaters this Spring. We've featured this pin on the blog before in a flower pin post when Barbara (my mom) sketched the pins. We both have them, because I think I gave it to her one Mother's Day. It's a lovely classic.

A polka dot tip to end with: one item of polka dot clothing/accessory per outfit is enough, unless you are applying to clown college. And, I would keep the rest of the outfit a solid color for maximum impact.
