Spring accessories are starting to crop up in stores and the big, bright and fruity finds are perfect for a modern-day Carmen Miranda. Known as the “Brazilian Bombshell,” Miranda became a film icon in the ’40s known for her singing, dancing and colourful costumes, which included a headdress of fruit.
I couldn’t help but think of “the lady in the tutti-frutti hat” at the sight of cherries, bananas, pineapples and apples cropping up on tote bags, bracelets, earrings and necklaces. The tutti frutti accessories have me longing for a tropical trip and also realizing that I’m probably not getting enough Vitamin C in my diet. Look below for some of my freshly-picked favourites.
