It was my turn to choose the theme for this month’s Style Not Age post, and for a fun, summery vibe I chose “Tutti Frutti”! I love fruity prints and motifs so I’m surprised I haven’t chosen this as a theme before now! In what may be bordering on obsessive, I have not only this shirt and bag, but two dresses, a top and a skirt in this peach print by Fabienne Chapot! I bought the midi shirt dress from The Bias Cut, and the bag direct from Fabienne Chapot, but the skirt, this shirt and a maxi shirt dress (that you’ll see in a few weeks) are preloved finds.
Since Brexit, I don’t even bother looking on the Fabienne Chapot website; the same goes for Pom Amsterdam and Scotch & Soda. The shipping fees and import duties make it unviable. Now, purchasing from these brands is only possible via boutiques and resale sites. I have alerts set up on eBay for items I’m looking for, and I check on Depop and Vinted regularly. I’ve found so many great preloved pieces this way.
In addition to my collection of peachy garments, I also have an array of other fruit prints, so I had a number of options for this Tutti Frutti theme. I have a cherry print dress (also Fabienne Chapot) and a lemon print maxi dress from H&M that I bought on eBay. In a suitcase somewhere I have a “Feeling Peachy” T-shirt – I need to dig that out. I’m not sure if it counts as one of my five a day, but wearing fruit prints certainly makes me feel cheerful and perhaps that little bit more energetic!
