BUY ONE GET ONE! BUY a second piece of jewellery of equal or lesser value for 50% off (in store only).

You know that look your cat gives you? The totally unimpressed, 'you've barely shown up on their radar' look when you walk out of the shower totally unclothed?....While, I do not have a cat, it's an expression I'd not like to see when I'm dressed for a party. Yes I'd like to be noticed, but tastefully so. I aim for festive, yet not competing with the Christmas tree, festive! By the time I put on my glasses, a pair of earrings and a necklace, a hat may well be out of the question. Accessorizing is a fine art that I continue to struggle with, but I enjoy the process of learning. Plum has such an exciting array of accessories, perfect for gift giving...or my favourite...self giving!!

This delicate lace beauty has it all. It's feminine, light and detailed. So perfect for the season. Taking into account the lovely bow tie at the neck, it clearly doesn't need a necklace. The bling, in my opinion, can be better concentrated on the wrists. The high sparkle of the large rhinestone bracelet or the wonderful filigree of the cuffs tie in nicely with the elaborate lace.

Renamed tie neck dot mesh blouse (black) $79 now $59

For a simple, understated black dress such as the above, almost anything goes. If silver is to your style, these fabulous big hearts and potentially the sleek look of the brushed cuff..keeps it polished and, matching.

Simone V-neck princess seam dress with sleeves (black or merlot) $139 now $89 (purchase in store only)

To match the free flowing spirit of the bohemian look of the above dress, try an eclectic mix of strands to create an effortless look. This dress could easily work with a statement necklace or large earrings. Lots of options to work with.

M Jersey dress with silk overlay (black) $115

It's really all about option and with so many, it's really about how they make you feel. Perhaps you're in the mood for something colourful and a bit more edgy in style. With the knotted front this dress creates a bit more of a departure from the usual look. Top jewellery options show a bit more whimsy with a colour tie in, or the middle option inviting in the circular print of the dress. Or simply beaded bracelets.

Simone 3/4 sleeve twist front dress (navy or teal) $125 now $62 (available for in store purchase only)

Accessories can make or break an outfit, add a focus or take away from an already stunning look even with many fabulous components. However, if you need some ideas or guidance check out Plum's vast selection of accessories as well as employ the expertise of Plum's fabulous staff in store...whatever you do, don't turn to your cat for advice.

First a wonderful deal to take advantage of. Jewellery and scarves bogo event...the best part is, you can mix and match...who can resist this!? So please, go forth and BOGO to your hearts content.

Bursting forth big again this season is boho style. Providing an organic, natural and fresh feel. Plum has many drool worthy pieces constructed with varied findings. Discover something new to revive your style and bring out your inner 'Flower Child'!

Here is a mere hint of what Plum has in store:

Image

Not sure you could find more of a boho look than lace or in this case eyelet...and an ecclectic mix of long beads.

Image

Plum is host to some wonderful accessory designers; many made right in Canada. One such company, new to Plum, is Frug. Hand made in Toronto, Frug has created some very unique pieces using mixed media such as brass, cord and semi precious stones, giving their designs a very organic feel.

Frug is coming next week to various locations...stay tuned!


ImageImage

Perhaps you feel compelled to match things...such as this gorgeous statement necklace (you really have to see this close up), paired with a similar tone ring. Giving off a decidedly bohemian or ethnic look. Turquoise is such a fresh, happy colour for spring.

Necklace rope with fans $49

Flower ring $25

ImageImageImage

And lets not forget about the ubiquitous scarf. Look at the many ways it can be transformed.

Look Paris, Italy, New York scarf $38

Image

Not only beautiful with bold, gold hardware this bag is also functional in several ways. Contains a smaller insert but is also reversible...meaning you've now bought 2 bags instead of one. How smart are you!

Jody reversible tote with insert  (4 colour combinations) $69 (not part of BOGO event)

Accessories are as much a part of style as punctuation is to a sentence. Makes it complete, pulls it together and adds emphasis. Speak loudly (add many layers), or softly (one delicate piece). It's all up to you,  Plum merely adds the tools and expertise.

Yours in Fashion passion...

ps...don't forget about the jewellery and scarf bogo event. Limited time only so don't hesitate (April 2 -6).  ... read the full post and reader comments

Digging for Treasure

Follow

Being that jewellery is 50% off, with my limited math skills, this means, you can buy twice as much. Feel free to use this rationalization yourself.

Ever notice someone who looks inexplicably stunning? Can't stop staring at them? Then your eyes land on the stunning silver necklaces or bracelets they've chosen. This can be attributed to the correct TCC (tone, contrast and color) choices.  I believe people generally are drawn to what works best on them. For example contrasting with the hair color can be very eye catching. When in doubt however, Plum staff are very well versed in TCC.  

Image

 

Consider all the great real estate around your neck, waiting for the next glorious piece. Never before has there been such a wide variety of styles..bohemian, glam, minimal...so many great things to try. Above, this beautiful turqoise color mixed with the silver etching adds just enough interest to the outfit.

 

 Image

Change the look of your blouse by adding a statement piece. Works as well with jeans and t shirt, or a jean jacket and skirt. So convertible! (like a mood).

 

Image

Speaking of jeans and t-shirts, doesn't get much simpler than this incredible ecclectic mix. Like found pieces on a beach trip. Feel free to embellish your story with 'I found these great pieces on a beach and made them myself'. Or you could be generous and tell them you found them at Plum....on sale.

Unfortunately, don't expect to pan for real gold at Plum. However, real treasures need not make a significant dent in your budget. Discover the bewildering choices until July 20th.

Yours in (sparking) Fashion Passion

Glittering Jewellery for NYE

Follow

 

 

Image

From the sparkling champagne to the fireworks display at midnight, New Year's Eve is all about glamour and glitz. Whether you’ve had your outfit planned for weeks or you’re pulling a look together at the last minute, jewellery is all you need to dazzle.

Get your outfit party-ready with glittering statement pieces. A sparkly necklace updates an ensemble and breaks up the blank space of your top. One statement item becomes the centerpiece of the outfit so pair a necklace with some simple jewelled studs.

If you're already wearing something with sparkles or sequins, finish your look with some classic pearls. Wrap a single strand around your wrist or knot it at the neck for a finishing touch. Or, layer a few strands with a rhinestone piece for a modernized look.

Celebrate the new year with some glitter. Now that all jewellery is 50% off, you can impress for less.

Attention-Getting Jewellery

Follow

 

What does your jewellery say about you?  When the right piece inspires the outfit, you base your whole look around one statement piece; or you add those finishing touches to pull the outfit together. Because jewellery is the show pieces of your outfit, the pieces you choose and how you wear them are an expression of your personal style.

Jewellery attracts attention because it creates focal points on your outfit. People’s eyes gravitate to the sparkle and then the piece speaks to your personal style. For example, we can tell that a woman is classic and feminine by her string of pearls or her rhinestone necklace. Or, we might find her bold and creative because of her colourful statement necklace or stacks of bracelets. When she wears her sterling silver jewellery with the semi-precious stones, we see her side that is earthy and elegant. By selecting the jewellery for your outfits, you are choosing what people will notice.

How you wear your jewels adds as much of your personal style as the pieces you choose. Because jewellery is less of an investment than clothing, we can afford to experiment with new styles or ways of wearing them. Even a casual tee and your distressed denim are worthy of being dressed up with a rhinestone necklace. If the audience changes, remember the risk is low. Take the piece off and slip it into your purse. 

Express your style with jewellery--it’s more than an afterthought.

 

From now until December 24th, buy one piece of jewellery and get the second piece (of equal or lesser value) for 50% off!

Also Mavi printed jeans for 50% off! 

More details on the styles here.

When you want to keep your jewellery understated, add these fine and delicate pieces. Charm necklaces, studs, skinny bracelets and rings are feminine finishing touches.

 

Image

Make a statement with these bold and colouful jewels. These are the definition of a conversation starter. All you need is a simple backdrop to create a stunning look.

 

Image

Experiment by layering your necklaces and stacking your bracelets and rings. Don't be afraid to mix and match.  The way you coordinate different pieces together also expresses your personal style.
