Acapella

DON'T FORGET: FREE SHIPPING UNTIL FEB. 19 (min. $50 purchase)

In light of Valentine's day, thought I'd pay a little attention to daytime to date time, outfits. With so little time these days, despite all our modern conveniences...who has time to go home and change an entire outfit after work? Typically we might be gone for a full 15 hours in a day, if we go from work to fun evening activity... no one wants to lug around an entire other ensemble! With a little tweaking, a simple change can have you ready for night time twerking! ;)

I would say this is definitive professional dress.  Perfect for any office scenario. But if you're heading out later to a movie or pub with friends, this might seem a bit stiff.  Possibly add a fun necklace, change into knee high boots and change into a jean jacket. Or instead of a necklace, maybe a scarf. Or with the embroidered option, nothing else is needed.

It feels as though there is still plenty of winter left to wear a turtleneck. Especially a nice, lightweight, well fitting one. You can still add some personality to it for the after work activity like a great pendant, a statement necklace or simply bright pink or red lipstick. A simple change of footwear and/or some bold earrings, takes things from I mean business to easy/casual.

Blouses and shirts should not be discounted. They've become fairly common place in the office world, but that doesn't mean they can't go out to play. This, sweet print, on it's own shows your fun side. Wear it buttoned up and add a string of pearls or open the neckline and your fav. necklace collection. Add a cardigan and a light hearted night event is set.

Conversely, there is absolutely no reason this stunning work of beading and embroidery, cannot be worn to work, perfect under a suit and then clearly wonderful for night time...Looks great with jeans, perhaps you're allowed them at work...if not, simply change your shoes to something a bit more funky! Ready to go!

Verty short sleeve beaded top (black) $89

Given that there are 24 hours in a day, and 8 of them are spent sleeping, that leaves only 16...driving across town to change outfits is not usually part of this equation. And in the words of Donna Brazile (DNC Chair) 'If you don't value your time, no one else will'.

I've come to the thoroughly researched conclusion that wasting a lot of money on my children's attire (pretty this and adorable that) is a bad diversion of funds. Clothing seems to serve as more of a convenient napkin for food spills for them. I, however, love them and have my favourites (not my children...GASP!)...colours, styles, cuts and labels like acapella and Wink Wink...for many reasons (Plum's new exclusive labels).  This week let's have a look at some Acapella blouses taken with the stunningly beautiful backdrop of Bowen Island:

Speaking of favourites, this gorgeous blouse could easily be the star of Plum's most recent spring photo shoot.  This fresh, light blouse worn above with shorts can also be worn with a pencil skirt, vintage finish jeans or ankle length pants making it a frequent wardrobe choice.

One of my personal favourite's is black and white, making it very simple to co-ordinate with nearly any other colour. While this acapella blouse is a very practical business attire addition, the varied polka dots provide a bit of retro whimsy.

The usual cut and print is not to be found with acapella. The general theme of acapella designs are, fresh, unique and anything but 'basic'. If you're noticing polka dots are big this season, you'd be 'spot' on. A very compelling and feminine print.

I can't pretend to be your 'Fashion Godmother'...but I can tell you if you head into one of Plum's locations one of their staff are a pretty close proximity! Ask to see the many, unique to Plum, acapella blouses. Or, if you're in search of new trends and styles to try, Plum staff are happy to help you pull together some great looks for spring.
