How fantastic does this feel!

Dressing for 'IT'!! Clearly this depends on where you're headed...My two children regularly look like they're attending an 'art through stains' convention. One is a self professed Tom-boy while the other would wear dresses to bed if allowed (yaay night gowns). So, I get my girly fix with at least one. However, hard as I try, they collect stains like a rain barrel collects rain. Therefore, investing in fine clothing for them would be simply idiotic. BUT, I realize, they are kids. For lots of us adults, we also love our dresses, for a wide variety of occasions. And Plum has an excellent feed-the-need collection that you must see. Better yet, grab some friends and go do a try on party! There's something for everyone. Here are just a few to wet your appetite (don't drool on yourself)!


This is just the sweetest summer dress. I wanted to present a couple of different images, to show off the back as well as the different footwear they used, and how versatile it can be. You need to think 'outside the beach'.

Spencer + Shaw ruffle trip/button front dress (blue dot) $143 until June 9 $115


Well, hello sunshine! Truly this dress presents a bright, unintimidating image. Comfortable in so many different places such as work, concert, dinner party, wedding! I think it's smashing with the kitten heels and looks perfectly fine with no accessories. Although, it's clean lines invite all kinds of imaginative accessories, and made from rayon, a man made, yet natural fibre, it's so ideal for the summer months.

Spencer + Shaw double shift dress (yellow) $105 until June 9 $84


Another super romantic looking dress.  In a sweet, always in style, paisley print adorned with flutter sleeves and an almost idyllic, wrap style conducive to almost all our body types.

Spencer + Shaw wrap/flutter sleeve dress (red/gold) $110 until June 9 $88


Something very Greek Goddess about this dress, or...maybe boho-festival girl....regardless of how you're feeling, it's definitely got all of the important points of a summer dress. And there's something about shirring on a summer dress, it's a pretty feature, yet it also allows for some comfort and movement (or...a couple of extra trips to the buffet).

Spencer + Shaw smocked bodice/cross back dress (red print) $121 until June 9 $97

Every year around March, I start to crave a dress...and thus begins the hunt. It feels like a search for the last good meal on earth. It's an insatiable, unreasonable, unrelenting at times an irresponsible urge with no known cause. And the cure? The perfect pair of shoes for my capture...of course!

Yours in Fashion passion...

Raise your hand if you have a big sister. I don't have enough hands, because I'm blessed with 3 big sisters. Yes you can count your best friend who you feel is like a big sister. But maybe you don't have a big sister and always wished you had one. Someone to always confide in, bounce things off of and look up to. Someone who will support but not criticize you, no matter how silly you feel your ideas might be.

Some young girls are less fortunate, their parents (or parent), are stretched to the limit. Not enough time or resources to provide all of this. Here's your opportunity to help a little sister get her big sister. During the month of May Plum collects donations by asking our customers to contribute $2 to help match 2 little Sisters with their big sisters. From now until June 1, 2014, Plum will be matching donations up to $25, and, you get a chance to win a $350 Plum Gift Certificate! 

These big sisters play such an important role in the lives of these growing young girls. By providing much needed support and encouragement  which in turn can boost a young girls growing self esteem. With healthy self esteem, we know so much can be accomplished. 




We also encourage you to attend the Big Sisters Spring Lunch:
