shoulders

You got the look!

I grew up in a small city where, if you wore anything too long, too short, too bright, too clothes-Y??!!...you got...'THE LOOK'! You know...where the eyeballs turn but the head does not? Lord, you'd think I was wearing a meat sandwich, when in fact it was...wait for it...RED!! Thankfully, now, living in a metropolis such as Vancouver or Calgary, almost anything goes...Although while at a play the other night, I got the look, which jolted me back to my teen years! I'm not sure if that was good or bad...but thankfully I was ok with the 8th thing I changed into before leaving the house. Anyway...maybe you would actually like to turn heads! Well, let's find you a look!

Something undeniably sweet about this dress in lovely lavender. At the same time, it's easy to wear with the shirred bodice, and just a hint of sexy. It's all about the shoulders! Which, until recent years, got very little attention. If it's too much for you, a shrug would work really well for dialing down the attention (but why!!).

Drawing attention to yourself is not all about how short, low cut or daring you can be. sometimes, it's just a hint of something different, something new, something that makes you glow! This kimono looks like it was hand painted by spring itself!

Kimono with waist tie (blue/pink) $69

Oh ya! Show 'em what ya got! You worked hard for those guns! I know I would. Although mine look more like bread doe waiting to go in the oven. And that's ok, I love bread! Enough about me, this is a fantastic two piece. No more tugging at the undershirt...as the inside layer is lightly sewn to the outer.

Cherish stripe 2-piece tank (black or slate blue) $42

This shows off your creative side. As above, pull it up and wear it as a dress...add a belt, add a kimono...OR wear it as a skirt. A great two-in-one garment. Add to it, this gorgeous, exaggerated, playful, adjustable heart pendant. I am simply IN LOVE with them. Wear with bright red lipstick...and MWA!...just gorgeous! A real show stopper! (in a variety of sizes and colours).

Hummingbird pull on wrap skirt (black or heather grey) $59

Zsiska heart pendant (sold only in store in a variety of colours and sizes-large $45, smaller $32)

And yet another great way to show the shoulders (I'm starting to sound like the children's song 'head & shoulders, knees and toes'). This is a lovely, light weight cotton Swiss, pin dot...a nice alternative to tank tops; a great Friday night, out to dinner, look. Wear it with a long skirt, a peasant skirt, shorts or experiment and go creative with a tank dress underneath, thus not bearing your shoulders. Lots of things to try.

Allie Rose Swiss dot cotton blouse (blue or coral) $55

When you worry too much about what others are thinking, you waste precious time, not thinking about what you yourself are thinking...and the truth really is, we are a mere blip on the radar of someone elses life...might as well make it interesting for them ;)
