Steep vs Cheap: Getting the Stella McCartney Fruity Style for Less

Thank you Stella McCartney for making the spring trend so fruity. The fruit chic is playful and feminine. It works for all different age groups and any social gatherings -- add some sassyness to work by wearing fruit on your dress instead of carrying it in your lunch bag. But there is no need for you to go bankrupt over this style when you can steal it for less.

Stella McCartney cut out dress, $1,125
Dorothy Perkins cotton dress, 38 GBP

Who needs a huge bank account when you have stores like Zara and Dorothy Perkins to rely on to get the designer style now. Also shoe designers like Jeffrey Campbell are even doing the fruity style!
