Polka dots: Not just for kitsch bands and Minnie Mouse
• Who she is: Corinne Shields
• What she’s wearing: an original dress by Myah Hubbell, creator of Recyclone (recyclone.org) as seen at the Red Ball fashion show.
• Why we love it: This pieced creation is fun, youthful, flirty and comfy all at once. See-through fabric with strategically placed panels shows a little skin, polka dots and an applique heart keep the mood light. Corinne adds knee socks and black boots to balance the whimsy.
