Shoes, dresses, skirts, tops — you name it, dots are on it. I’ve probably had polka-dot something every year since I’ve been a kid. The dots are on point this spring too.

I found a lot of styles for spring that are rocking geometric patterns. And metallics and a lot of other things I probably won’t wear. But I would if I were younger. This top at left from Intermix online showed up in some designer clothing ideas in InStyle. It’s way out of my price range…

Time to March into shopping. Here are a a few things I  found — mostly for the kids: I know how difficult shoe tying is for some kids. They all master it at different ages, but the wizardry of shoe tying can frustrate many of us. I received an e-mail about EZLeaps Shoe Tying Tool. I…
