Last night at dinner, I (Chanel) found myself giving fashion lessons to my  suddenly curious boyfriend. After a few minutes, the conversation took a philosophical turn as I attempted to explain why at one point in time something might look fabulous, but a few years later, the exact same thing can be so so wrong. I think my attempt was somewhat of a failure, because by the end of it all the only insight I had to offer was, ‘Who knows? That’s just the way it is.’ Which brings me to today’s installment of Pinned Down: if you would have asked me two years ago how I felt about polka dots, I would have vehemently told you that I absolutely despise them. But now, fashion being the fickle thing that she is, I seriously can’t get enough of the print… and we’ve got the Pinterest board to prove it! Follow the jump for a few of the images that have inspired my change of heart, and I’d love to know if the trend has won you over this season…

    Polka dots have completely won me over too, although I really disliked them as a kid. I am still searching for just the right piece…

    I’m a total sucker for that top image of the dotted skirt paired with the vintage-y lace blouse… though a pattern like that may have to wait for my post-pregnancy wardrobe. 😉

    I will always, always love polka dots. And stripes. I don’t think they ever really go out of style (much like animal prints). Very chic.
