Connecting the dots




A beautiful Sunday sunset by the beach ................


I am getting dotty...

Sumptuous dots have always been my favourites in the print department. And last summer when I could not find one piece of polka-dot clothing that I could fit into, it led to a huge craving of dots. Result?? In the last few months, I amassed a sizeable collection of everything dotty, picking them up mindlessly but not without the intent of wearing them in loads come sun, snow or rain.

And true to my resolution....
When the punch of spring spirit struck me this Sunday, I decided to get smack bang into my dots. Whether it was the boredom of Sunday or an itch for adventure, I don't know, but I let loose of my experimental side. It was time to mix things up and kick out the boring, so I shoved two dotty items into one outfit. A delicious tangerine polka-dot top connected dots with smaller polka-dots on a chocolatey brown skirt over which I threw in my favourite gold glasses (you can't do without them on a sunny beach), borrowed shiny polki bracelet from mom's closet and of course couldn't have done without those nude slingbacks.

Without sounding like a bit of a narcissist, I must say, I was quite pleased with myself.





Courtesy sunlight, this shot looks like just coming out from a 70s movie. So retro that my outfit looks almost vintage (oh I so loathe even the idea of wearing vintage clothes. Just the thought of wearing someone else's hands-me-down, no matter how valuable, simply repulses me).






Love how my ensemble's earthy palette is blending so well with the nature.

yayoiThese dots remind me of 78-year old, polka-dot obsessed, Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama (right). Yayoi has an unusual talent that yields beautiful dots which she exhibits through her art.I stumbled on Yayoi's work on internet and was completely gobsmacked at how she transformed the simple dots into a piece of desirable art.  One of her recent exhibits ‘The Obliteration Room’ at Queensland Art Gallery in Australia took my breath away. She created an interactive children's project, which started with a plain white all-white space with regular domestic interior eventually turning into a masterpiece of colourful polka dots in a few weeks. Sheer genius!!!   

   



 It is just so fascinating!!!!
