Cherry Wrap Dress and a Wicker Purse

While visiting my daughter in January, I had the opportunity to attend my first Fashion Trend Show in Seattle. It was so interesting and I watched how Jean chose and ordered clothes for her eco-boutique Drizzle & Shine.

She let me choose this dress but I would have to wait for it because all the clothes, jewellery and accesories were only samples for ordering.

I love the little cherries on a black background and this dress will take me into autumn with a black or red cardigan, and black tights with booties. Do you buy clothes that transition into fall?

This wicker purse was a gift from my dear friend Roxanne. It’s my favourite summer purse.

Life is a bowl of cherries!

  1. I love your dress! I hope I can find those prints here in the Philippines. Though my husband doesn’t like me to wear a cherry dress anymore since it’s been a hype here and almost every girl is wearing a cherry wrap dress with the same print.😅

    Carmen, I love that dress! It does go well with your cherry necklace and earrings too. I do love dresses like that very much! They are fitting really well always. Yes it is getting cooler now, so I start soon with knitted dresses. 🙂

      Thank you VERY much liebe Ute! I’m so glad I can wear this dress in the fall as you will see in a future post. We’re still enjoying some warm days but I know that won’t last. *sigh* Oh well, it’s not the autumn that I don’t like, it’s winter that I dread! Make sure you don’t visit us in winter. 😉

  6. Carmen, with all respect, I must say that first photo of this post, is amazing. You look gorgeous. Perhaps one of the best photos you have taken.

    As for the fashion show, you should have participated. You are a trend setter.

  7. This dress was worth the wait Carmen !! The cut of the dress is perfect and I love the little cherries. You did a great job again accessorising from the earrings, to necklace sandals, and the fabulous wicker purse. And your smile is amazing ! I do like to transition also , it is fun to utilize clothing into two seasons. Have a great day, Terri xo.

      Thank you kindly dear Terri! I will be showing how I style it for fall soon. It’s too pretty to have to wait till next summer to wear it again, especially since I already had to wait so long. When Jean put in the order, the dresses weren’t even made yet. The company only makes as many as are ordered, which can take months before she receives the shipment and then she had to ship it to me. 🍒



      • You are welcome Carmen ! Looking forward to your fall styling tips, and yes it would be a shame to hide this exquisite dress until the summer! It took time to get to you but so worth it. I hope you have a nice day, Terri xo.

    Cherries are part of your personality, they are fruits that are confused with you, pink, sweet, tender, tasty, beautiful … The dress is wonderful and dressed for you is a jewel! I love your necklace, with more details of your personality, and also those beautiful red sandals, another color that points to you. And what can I say about your earrings? They are beautiful and in that beautiful face, those beautiful eyes and that smile that falls in love form a harmonious ensemble that makes me sigh.
