NEWSFLASH: It's still dress season

For 4 days Oct. 18 to 21...destination is Plum. 8 select Spencer + Shaw dress styles to choose from - 30% off. While quantities last

While the habit of being late is not typically viewed positively...show of hands, who thinks the delay of autumn weather is 'A-OKAY? We mostly look forward to the richness of fall colours, but truly, it will get dark, cold and kind of dreary! Rarely, are there times, where lateness is seen as a glorious thing... although recently when Prince Harry heard his wife utter... 'I'm late', that would be considered an exception! BUT, mostly, those who are chronically, punctually challenged leave us all scratching our heads (or banging them) and wondering why. Does it help to know, studies have shown that the feeling of time passing, just feels different to those who tend to be 'delayed'? Why don't we try to look on the bright side of tardiness...summer extends her stay with us...and thus dress season can continue!

I love this dress. Yes it sports a very spring like print, however, as long as flowers are still blooming, why can't we wear them on our dresses (or yes, in your hair oh bohemian one)! Above the look shows sophistication worn with classic heels (by all means add a long strand of beads). Alternately, create a funky look with knee high boots, an infinity scarf* and for the night time chill, wear with this pin stripe jacket (not matching exactly gives it a bit more edge). However, if mixing patterns is not your thing, try a basic cardigan, or solid jacket or even a jean jacket and balance out the femininity of the dress with a fedora!

(*creating an infinity scarf out of long scarf is as simple as tying a knot in the ends and wrapping it around your neck several times...voila-new scarf)

Oh...I had legs like this once.....on my Barbie....just kidding, I preferred building blocks....but I digress, this is such a gorgeous 'going out/date night/party' dress. I also think it calls for equally stunning heels or ankle boots. Or perhaps downplay the footwear and turn up the notch on the accessories (the neckline yearns for an eye catching necklace or several).

Spencer+Shaw ruffle trim wrap dress (black combo) $149 Oct.18 to 21 30% off

This very unstructured dress is all about the pattern. It's mod, it's bold and yet the colours are still subdued. And with such a dress... to accessorize or not! Two choices, let the pattern do the talking because it's really enough, OR get creative with the circular pattern find earrings with a similar or contrasting shape.

Yet another easy, relaxed fit dress. Pair it with this long sweater, which plays one length against the other nicely. If you're not good with bare legs add leggings and ankle boots. Just a simple pulled together look that jostles jeans for a simple yet comfortable, pulled together look.

I don't know about you, but I seem to excel at all things delayed. I got married late, I had children late and each of them was born 10 days over due. I seem to be invested in running late....well, maybe not running!
