Real vs. Steal – Stella McCartney Citrus Fruit Print Shirt Dress

Stella McCartney obviously was inspired by citrus fruits for her S/S 2011 collection because several of the pieces from the collection had this distinctive lemons/oranges/lime print. I admit it kind of reminded me of my Grandma’s kitchen curtains at first, but with the right accessories (waist belt & wooden bangles!) and attitude (I-so-don’t-care-what-you-think-of-my-outfit!) I think this dress could be rocked & rocked well. However, I don’t quite see myself shelling out more than $800 for such a difficult dress; plus, let’s just say the shape of this dress is… improvable.

Necessary Clothing Meyer Fruit Dress

Update (05/06/2013): Found another Stella McCartney inspired fruit-print dress. This fruity little number by Necessary Clothing is super budget-friendly at $19.99. Steal deal alert!

Limited Edition White Lemon Print Dress

So this summer dress by Limited Edition might not be a dupe for the Stella McCartney dress because it has a different shape and a slightly different fruit print, but the inspiration behind this dress is clearly visible I think. And shhhht, but in this case I prefer the steal dress because a) it’s so much more affordable and b) because the shape is much more flattering to a woman’s body. Dorothy Perkins ships worldwide btw (shipping to the US is £7.50 only).
