Fruity Tooty - Friday Fashion Finds

Happy Holidays! Are you finished with your shopping? A better question, is your wardrobe ready for next Springs hottest trends? One of my favorites I have to say, is this fun, fresh fruity print trend.

First, I want to share this delicious, watercolor painting by Angela Fehr from northern British Columbia. The amazing details of this fruit just makes my mouth water, and it's the perfect inspiration to jump start today's fruity fashion finds!

I love the bright colors and cheeky attitude of the printed fruits trend! However it could go very wrong, very fast, so here is one suggestion how to pull it off. The best way to do this is pick one amazing fruity printed item, and then build around it with coordinating solids and accessories. Here is today's fun outfit.

The main pick is this flirty, strapless vintage fruit printed dress just bursting with colors! It's so chic, and could be dressed up or down so many ways. I love mixing silvery greys to tone it down a bit, and keep you from turning into Carmen Miranda. This gorgeous, hand carved apple necklace will simply go with everything, and this amazing nectarine ring pops up the orange from the dress. I'm just drooling over these snakeskin grey boots - how cute! (This particular listing is for men's, but it's the look, darling, the look that counts here)

If you want to wear this outfit into the evening, throw on this delicious, apple red vintage Hermes cardigan, silvery blue-grey, hand painted silk scarf, and precious black and silver clutch with a hand carved wooden handle (to DIE for). Ethnic/tribal purses and totes are a must for next season, and this one would go so perfectly with many outfits.

Viola - you've done it! Flirty, fabulous, and yes, oh so fruity!

Thanks for your promo of my boots! Actually, lots of gals with larger feet are finding the men's cowboy boots a good fit! And I like the combination with the colorful fruit prints--Bravo!
