An absolutely huge week here at Polka Dot Central, with the blog bursting at the seams with gorgeous weddings, tutorials and expert advice. I particularly enjoyed the controversial post regarding hired suits from the very fashionable Milton Gan – we love to get people talking!

Bringing you the full-to-the-brim Friday Roundup live from NYC, I’ve been soaking up the atmosphere and taking in the trends and fashions straight from the city that never sleeps – bliss! Enjoy this week’s offerings from our specialty blogs, and enjoy your Australian coffee (lord, how I miss it!)
