Tropic Thunder









Apparel is dripping in pineapples, bananas, grapefruits and other fashion forward fruits. The warm breezes, yellow sunshine and playfulness of dresses, skirts, tops and shorts patterned with tropical influences is whipping all into a frenzy.  This fashion maven was at a spring fashion show and riveted by the emcee sporting an unforgettable pineapple infused skirt that over shadowed the entire extravaganza.  For some zany reason the tropics are taking center stage.   Perhaps it is the magical delights fruit adds to very occasion.  Or the fact that fruity pieces during summer have always been a classic staple and is once again making a brightly yellow, green, pink, pink, red and orange appearance.
