Another Marimekko moment. I think I must be in a sentimental mood. But I love these 1970’s rig-outs. If I only we had these to wear in Sorrento. All the sisters in polka-dots.

Queen Alexandra and her sister Dagmar also loved the polka dot.
The sisters designed their own clothes and often dressed identically causing a sensation when out and about in London. I think these dots would have been quite radical for the time.

A polka-dot is full of cheerful optimism and fun. It’s what we all need.
