Polka Studs

Polka dots have been having a big, sweeping moment for a couple of seasons – unless you’re Kate Spade, in which case polka dots define your very existence.

Studs, on the other hand, partially define my existence and have since junior high school. Hey – old habits die hard and if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. That’s right, two cliches in one sentence. This is the kind of literary foothold that you’ll only find on Broke & Beautiful.

I thought it would be cute to smash polka dots and studs together. It sounds a bit violent, but I think it ends up pretty adorable. Instead of clusters of studs, or specific areas with studs – how about a nice, even, all-over pattern… of studs? Check out my favorite polka-dot-studded clothes!
