In Honour of Mother’s Day;

SIT UP STRAIGHT AND WEAR YOUR FRUIT!

You ‘d have to be a Fashion Magazine Teetotaler not to have clocked the abundance of fruity delights proffered up by designers for Spring/Summer 2011…in which case, you probably wouldn’t be a Slim Paley reader, now would you?!  But just in case  (and because I hate to leave anyone out-this is a 100% all inclusive blog, except for certain Housewives on Bravo (and their husband) everyone is welcome here- even Jazz Lovers!)   er, wait…what was I saying?? Oh ya, trust me, it’s a veritable cornucopia of fruity frivolities out there!  Personally, I’m really liking it. It’s fun and it makes me smile, although I don’t generally invest in prints that date themselves so quickly, one or two pieces might be just what the Nutritionist ordered.  

Stella McCartney wins for growing the prettiest, most photographed crop, but I’m sure we’ll be seeing the trickle down into less expensive shops before you can say “Darling, There’s a seed in my Mimosa”

A funny little blast from the past to accompany you…


Hey- you think it’s easy to find songs about fruit?!  Save it for your next karaoke party!

Eat Up :)

Oranges & blossoms from the groves in Ojai, California

If Ojai met the Italian Riviera, fell in love and got married, this scent would be the fruit of their union

It’s gorgeous!..
