I.C.Y.M.I. (in case you missed it), acronyms are the new pencil! Our time so limited, we can't write full sentences. Imagine trying to explain this (and Twitter) to a distant ancestor, plowing a field, dawn to dusk. So, what was once secretarial shorthand, is now common language. Be right back is condensed like an accordion to BRB, IDK means I don't know; other favourites include LOL, OMG or TBH (to be honest); And did you know, everyone's old favourite...O.K. said to originate from a tongue in cheek piece in an early 19th century Boston Morning Post article on grammar, referring to 'oll korrect'?  So, in my mind jumpsuits are like the acronym of the wardrobe. Why bother with a top and pants or skirt when one garment will do. However, perish the thought they should be relegated to casual times or don't represent fashion. S.F.Y. (see for yourself-I made that up)!


I tend not to be the sort that goes for one garment, rather prefer to construct a look. However, one can certainly create a look with jumpsuits. On the left a more casual, layering with the turtleneck, a scarf worn as a sash, and a pendant. On the right a more upscale chic, paired down look, with a simple necklace, understated earrings, a clutch and dynamite, sexy shoes.

Lani capsleeve jumpsuit (black, teal or mocha) was $75 now on sale at $52 (with an additional 25% off - it will be $39 until Sunday-IN STORE ONLY AT THIS PRICE)



If you prefer a bit of coverage, here are some ideas. For a somewhat more exotic look, try adding a kimono. If you bought one of the above shawl/vests or a jacket during one of the recent promotions, try the jumpsuit with one of them. With the shawl/vest an idea is to close it up and belt it. And the open front jacket adds a slight bit of definition to balance the bottom of the jumpsuit.

Wasabi + Mint criss cross back, cropped jumpsuit (black) $75

KW floral print kimono (black) $59

KW oriental floral kimono (black) $69

Look by M basic shawl vest (8 colours) $69

Soya Concept drape front jacket (ruby) $95



This is such a super soft, cuddly version, perfect for hanging out, running errands or....cuddling!! Perfectly layered with the turtleneck and if heading out, add a jean jacket and scarf. Yes I realize that it means practically disrobing for bathroom trips, but it's a worthwhile payoff for the ease of movement. And let's face it...it's just super cool and easy looking.

Double Zero fuzzy jumpsuit (black or heather grey) $69


Another layering option if seen recently is adding a top or sweater thus resulting in a look of top and bottom; your jumpsuit has now just converted to pants.

Wasabi + Mint cross front jumpsuit (black or burgundy) $69

B.Young flower sweater (purple/orange) $99

It feels as though we're moving in a direction as a society of 'less do, more think and talk'. I envision a time in the future, we'll have devices that can scratch our noses for us, because, you know, our hands are just too busy typing. As you might have guessed, I'm rather a big fan of words; written out in full on paper, on a screen, in a book or even on a clothing label...ETC!!

For 5 days only: find a beautiful Simone or Wink Wink dress at 25% off (to Feb.12).

Be it a wedding dress, a night dress, an LBD...or anything in between, when we find 'the' dress, it's tantamount to finding the love of our lives. After all, nothing gives you that gush of soul melting warmth, like the perfect dress. According to National Geographic, a five thousand year old dress called the 'Tarkhan Dress' is potentially the oldest constructed dress found to date, not wrapped or draped. That certainly is the penultimate of vintage and needless to say a 'keeper'.  But perhaps easier than an acheaological dig would be a trip to Plum. Known for stocking a variety of dress designs to suit multiple body types.


Mimicking the blue daisy this sweet water colour like print is a great introduction to spring. Super easy to wear and extremely comfortable comprised of a supple stretch material and a delicate tie back for slightly more definition. Great for work wear or weekends away.

The knotted hem (or rather knotted anything); while not a brand new trend, is a trend not showing signs of slowing down. Creates a fun, unique feature to an otherwise basic cut.

Wink Wink knot hem tank dress (coral or grey print) for 4 days only $66.75


One of Plum's all time favourite dress cuts. Sought after for it's universally appealing, to most body types, design.

This is not part of the sale, but it's definitely worth a look. Explore your inner Egyptian princess in this gorgeous maxi dress. With several ways to wear this, and add  to that, multiple ways to accessorize, you have an excellent travel garment for the warmer climates.

Mustard Seed maxi dress (black, coral or heather grey) $89



This is also not part of the sale, but it's super fun and easy. The elegant drape of rayon, off the shoulder flirty design and beautiful botanical floral print make this a perfect choice for spring or travels to warmer climates. Feel too timid to do the off the shoulder look? Wear a lace tank under or simply don't wear it off the shoulder! Belt it, wear it as a mini, or even wear it as a beach cover up.

The designer Balenciaga said 'A woman has no need to be perfect or even beautiful to wear one of my dresses, the dress will do that for her'. Coco Chanel said 'Look for the woman in the dress, if there is no woman, there is no dress'. I say, it's just a dress, it has no lofty purpose, but it can put a smile on your face, which is something you can share with others!

Yours in Fashion passion...
