Last week I met with Madame Poupie Cadolle in New York City.
Her grandmother invented the modern day bra and her mother, Alice, actually created undergarments for Coco Chanel's non-corset styles of the 1920's.
And now, her lovely daughter, Patricia, is part of the Maison Cadolle legacy.
Please notice how Patricia is wearing a polka dot dress.
I told her how much I liked her dress and she laughed, saying oh, French women love polka dots!
And then her mother, Madame Cadolle agreed.
I was so pleased and excited by this, because I love polka dots too!
And you know what--my French-American grandmother loved polka dots. She owned a beautiful navy blue silk suit with tiny white polka dots. I had forgotten about that until that very moment.
And so, mes amis, I encourage you to try out polka dots.
You can start by wearing them underneath a pretty cardigan.
I haven't worn a polka dot dress or skirt in many years, but now I'm going to reconsider and begin my search for cute polka dots!
But who sells them nowadays?
Any suggestions to help with my polka dot search? I'd love to hear your thoughts, mes amis.
