Fruity Fabrications. Citrus Creations. Lemon Love.
It’s still mighty hot here in the South, and I had been on the lookout for a lemon print dress for awhile now.

Lemons and Lemoncello
“Traditionally, limoncello is produced in southern Italy along the western coast. As it’s traditionally made from Femminello St. Teresa lemons, which are also known as Sorrento lemons (“limone di Sorrento”), it is mostly associated with the Sorrentine Peninsula and the Amalfi Coast.” from the website bespokeunit.com
What I do know is my love for lemonade as a child ( making homemade lemonade and having my own entreprenurial Lemonade Stand) turned into as an adult my love for Lemoncello. This is not for the fainthearted though! It is made by softening lemon peels with natural grain alcohol for several weeks. Then it is diluted with water and sugar. ( and its still strong) . You only need a few ounces in a glass with ice, and its a wonderful after dinner drink.
Speaking of lemons, a few years ago I spied an adorable shirt dress in yellow with lemons from Boden, but it sold out in no time. I came across this dress while perusing a few clothing sites, and purchased it on Chicwish. I don’t have much from this company, but the quality is quite good, it is cotton, and cool to wear.
Tiered layered dresses are big and have been big this year. I am not used to the empire waist, but it works well wit this style, and length is given with the shoulder ties. You are able to make it shorter or a little longer depending on your torso.
I love the shoulder ties on sundresses, a sweet touch and detail that does not go unnoticed!
This dress did take 2 weeks to arrive, as Chicwish is out of China, so if you want something sooner, it will take at least 10 days after processing, unless you choose a faster shipping speed.
I love the color of the dress, the vibrant print, as well as the bit of shiring in the back, making it very comfortable.
Now, if we were going to Italy in the Summer next year, I would take this with me!
I have worn lemon print several other times on the blog, as I gravitate toward this fruity fashion.
Have a read with these prior posts:
New glasses! I also bought these Jimmy Choo glasses recently. I had a new prescription and needed progressives.I had needed them for while now, and finally had gotten tired of lifting them on and off to see! I also made them into sunglasses with Transition lenses. After years of having metal/plastic frames, I wanted an all tortoiseshell square shape. The one shank has gold glitter, so if I forget my necklace, I am covered! 😉 Since I have a petite face, they were a small, with measurements 50-17-130.
Whenever I wear a lemon print, I take out my Ann Taylor lemon earrings!
Are you a sundress wearer and a fan of lemon or fruit prints?
