Pom-Pom Power

When I was little I desperately wanted a poodle because I LOVED the idea of pom-poms. Little did I know that a pom-pom-ed poodle would require meticulous grooming that was beyond my 10-year-old self. In fact, the only enduring pom-pom was the one in his name.

Over the last couple of seasons pom-poms have been appearing in miniature on scarves, shorts, bags, dresses, etc. I still like the dramatic touch of an oversized, often spare pom, though, as on these garments:
