dress yourself...

Do you dress yourself? Really! Personally, I rarely seek opinions from others or ask 'does this look good?' And I'm laughing as I type, I'm sure those who know me are thinking....'perhaps you should rethink that'. Recently, I was ready for Easter; had an outfit put together, (my usual black components)...when suddenly my husband upon seeing me uttered "You should wear something brighter!"  My normal response would be to indignantly go into a Vesuvius, 'how dare you' style rant. However, I realized, it was a lovely day, not a cloud for miles...he was right! So I changed. I had a fashion epiphany (and I didn't yell)...I felt like a new person....dresses have a similar effect, a beautifully fitting dress can make you feel like there is nothing you can't do Mary Tyler Moore! Have a look at some of Simone's great new styles:


I realize I keep harping on the style elements of Claudia's (Plum's designer) dresses and this one is no different. Features an adorable peek a boo front and tie, a slight sweetheart neckline and a great, flowey skirt. Never to ignore the back, this has a shirred back. Such a gorgeous retro print.

Simone keyhole dress $ 129


I am in love! Who needs a significant other when you have a dress like this ;)  At first glance it looks like a typical shift dress, thus why I had to show you the back. Apart from this it has an ever so slightly tucking below the neckline and the fabric has such a divine stretch...the only jiggles will be in your bowl of Jello!

Simone printed knit dress with back detail (black print or mint print) $ 125


Perhaps a less fitted dress is something you find more 'you'. Another great Simone design. Light, easy, yet includes a tie back.

Simone sleeveless flared sundress (aqua, blue/pink, and red) $129


This dress is reminiscent of a Grace Kelly look but with a modern kick featuring an exposed zipper back. So pretty, so well cut and just exquisite fabric. A real classic, perfect for so many of the spring and summer events to come.

Simone eyelet dress (black or white) COMING SOON~

And just for future reference, other than Plum staff, who are fashion-know-it-all's (and they truly do!)...DON'T let anyone tell you what to wear, how to wear it or when to wear it....unless they are willing to pay for it (then they can have an opinion-maybe)!

Yours in Fashion passion....

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.
acapella dolman sleeve blouse (black, lemon or white) $89
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.
acapella front tie with back pleat (black/ivory or white/black) $69
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.
acapella cape blouse (red or yellow) $85
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.
