Flirt-anxious

Follow

FOR LOTS of flirt worthy great finds, be sure to attend Plum's annual, in store, 4 day sidewalk sale!

Are you an anxious flirt? You know, you go to a party, with a couple of friends and want to start up a conversation with someone who looks attractive...BUT...it's hard to know where to start, hard to know what to do with your hands, hard not to dribble food while trying not to talk too much...very nerve wracking. It's like emotional multitasking!  Flirting is a very fine art, some are good at it and some are just good at being flirted with. I say, find a super cute dress, and let the dances and glances begin!

According to psychology today, flirting is not a simple, light hearted activity, as it encompasses many skills such as body language, empathy and creativity. Part of that creativity, however premeditated, is how we dress. The above dress is just a sweet, lively, dancing dress. Not so overly revealing so as to raise your Grandma's eyebrows, just a little bit of somethin' to catch someone's eye!

Lani off shoulder dress was $89 now $59 (in store only)

Off the shoulder is not the only option, when it comes to a 'ya-I'm-interested', type garb, but it's a very sought after style for good reason (and the season). And this one, also has a lovely peek a boo slit for showing off that strut...(and dance moves)!

Angela shirred bodice (lilac or mustard) $95

The researchers at the University of Kansas, having completed a study on verbal and non verbal behaviors, established 5 basic types of flirting styles - physical, traditional, sincere, polite and playful.  I say, why put pressure on yourself...find something pretty and playful that makes people inclined to flirt with you! And just what type of flirt do you think you are?

And who says that dresses are the only 'flirt-worthy' garment? Ptcha!!! I say! These fabulous linen pants just dance when you walk. They come in 5 alluring colours and have such a glorious drape, in a very 'now' crop, wide leg trend that is the best for the season. (non-flat stomach rationalizations: I was too busy eating to have a stomach this flat...and I'm totally ok with my 'mommy tummy').

Catwalk gathered waist, tie pant (beige, black, charcoal, mustard or pink) $92

Don't let the very idea of mingling and flirting cause unnecessary stress...it's meant to be fun...be yourself, most of all...That being said, I can honestly say it's been at least a 12 year old ago, that I remember purposely flirting; unless gazing longingly into my morning coffee counts...then yes, I'm a total flirt expert!!

Not a day goes by that a new problem doesn't present itself, would you agree? One issue solved...new one crops up.  Fashion and style, need not be one of them. It should be fresh, thrilling and create happiness...like living in Vancouver does ;) Inspiring creativity, and ease...that's also Plum. Lets take a peak at some ensembles that create a feeling of uncomplicated fun.

Is it cruel to post photos of shorts while the rest of the country is still digging out of mounds of snow? I digress.  In any case, who says shorts should only be worn with t shirts...the above photo proves otherwise. The sleeveless blouse works as a nice balance against the rugged nature of the shorts; yet can also easily compliment a skirt or trousers. Very versatile wardrobe addition.

Plum double layer tank (champagne, coral or fuchsia) $69

Image

Another fresh, easy outfit that requires very little effort. Add or subtract accessories or sweaters/shawls as needed, however, comfort and style fully come together here. Ultimately you've made a great investment when what you've chosen will work in various ways, such is the case with this top.

THML embroidered blouse (black or white) $75

Image

You really don't need to know about everyone else's personal style, just your own! And if dresses are part of that style, this one will rarely see the inside of your closet. Simple stripes, with an unexpected crest type embroidery. Again, add accessories or not, such an easy choice.

THML stripe embroidered tank dress (black/white or blue/white) $89

Image

These pants are 'dare I say'...fun and create a lighthearted look. Again, another very functional wardrobe addition. Change the self belt to one of your own  or wear with a longer style t shirt and add a belt.  Espadrilles, gladiators or as above, beautiful leather flats, make it complete.

THML drapy pant (black) $75

Ultimately, fashion can be a real elixir to life's challenges in a small way and just remember...'happy girls are the prettiest' Audrey Hepburn
