My enduring love for polka dots meant that I had to show you these shoes, even although I’m not exactly, well, dotty about them.
The polka dot, you see, is a print that it’s fairly easy to go too far with. One minute you’re thinking, “Ooh, polka dots! So cute! So fun!” and then the next minute you’re absolutely covered in the thing and looking like Minnie Mouse with measles.
For me, these shoes have gone a bit too far: smaller dots might have worked, but the larger ones mean that, while these did get my attention, and I do love the shape of them, I’d probably end up deciding they were a little too cartoonish, and putting them back on the shelf.
What do you think of them?
