Apparently, guys love a girl in polka dots. We learned this fun fact last week after a friend professed his love for the dots' retro vibe, which in turn made us wonder whether he loved the actual spots or just the 50's housewife look it connotes. So we asked around this weekend, and yes, apparently they love a buttoned up, full skirted, high-heeled woman. Brett even remembers Matthew Broderick saying he preferred a woman in a Stepford Wife-like outfit, (obviously interesting in and of itself since his wife dresses like anything but), and he distinctly recalls a GQ spread in which men professed their love for the women on the Food Network in part because yes - they can cook, but also because they're beautiful and dress conservatively. The message appears to be that guys don't like girls who dress like Posh or Carrie Bradshaw but want a girl who looks more like Katie Holmes or Charlotte York - and polka dots are an added bonus. We're wondering though, can stars replace polka dots? Because we're really obsessed with this romper and we're pretty sure every guy we know would think we'd lost it if we started wearing it around. But if it was spotted - well apparently it'd be ok?
