Juicy Fruit

Gonna kick off my first post with a theme I hope to emulate throughout the blog in future postings; an appreciation of a beautiful piece, in this case designer, and an example of how someone can replicate this piece in a more affordable, accessible version!

I am obsessed with this Stella Mc Cartney Summer 2011 fruit print dress, with the mixture of colourful fruit pieces muted by dark green leaves against a white palette. The colours and print echo the 70's trend of the moment. I also love the shift dress style with the curved slits at each side to soften the cut. It is a sophisticated dress with a fusion of summer fun. You can just picture this dress paired with wooden wedges and sunglasses in an uber cool sun drenched destination!


So you can imagine my excitement to find this Zara blouse with a similar fruit print trend against a white palette like the dress. Although the print envelops the blouse, unlike the separation in the dress, I feel it is a clever imitation with its shift style and cap sleeves.


It is teamed here with a white mini but you could also wear it with crisp white shorts, wooden wedges and retro sunglasses to embrace the summer! Although this is probably a bit optimistic in our less than Mediterranean climate therefore white or blue skinny jeans would be a welcome substitute.
