Trend Alert: “Connect the Dots”

I was on Twitter last night and another great curvy blogger, Alissa of Stylish Curves, was letting us follow her during one of her shopping experiences. One of the items she posted was a pic of a sheer polka dot spotted item. This is how I know great bloggers think alike, because I was just starting to gather research on that exact same trend earlier this week. If you read my “On the Spot”  post last week then you saw me wearing a polka dot sheer mesh top by Simply Be. This whole sheer polka dot trend  came about last year when designer Stella McCartney made her now famous “Lucia” dress. It was worn on many red carpets and magazine covers. I even did a Look for Less’ post on Stella’s dress. Well it seems to have become quite popular again so below I’m sharing with you some of my favorite sheer polka-dot items for the plus-size range:


1) Indigo Spot Mesh Dress from Dorothy Perkins, $55, Sizes 2-18

2) Sexy Spot Mesh Dress from City Chic, $59.95

3) Layered Spot Mesh Patterned Top by Simply Be, $69, Sizes 10-28
