tank top

COATS!! 60% OFF? This is definitely a deal I can get myself into. I'm not one of the lucky individuals avoiding winter! Although, you do have to brave the elements to find them. IN STORE ONLY!




Do you sometimes think we will see a day where winter will no longer exist? Perhaps not in our lifetime. Some of us escape the grayness of the season during these dreary months by heading south. You therefore, will need to get prepared by exhuming the summer wear. And while we all make our individual attempts at conserving, reusing and recycling, at times, we find the old tank tops are just not possible to resuscitate.  And when you discover which of your seasonal favourites just can't make it through another season...enter Plum to the rescue! With an extensive collection to help you replace the out of season wardrobe. Sometimes, one or two things is all it takes to refresh the look!


Maybe you're looking to pack skinny!! You know, very few pieces, carry on only...above, a few fun loving, light hearted t shirts, flowey linen pants, a pair of shorts and a kimono. All of these can likely integrate into your current pieces nicely.

Bear Dance Bonjour pug t shirt (black) $35

Bear Dance cats doing yoga (burgundy) $35

Made in Italy linen cropped pant (black, white, light grey or taupe) $95

Jag Ainsley Bermuda short (grey, jungle palm or navy) $69

S+S rayon print kimono $49


OR...maybe you just need one, head turning outstanding outfit! I'd say this would do the trick! Two pieces that can also be paired with other coordinates, which creates an extension of your wardrobe in a very flowey rayon. Or add a shrug for cooler nights. (pieces sold separately)

Cotton Candy stripe bandeau top (blue or taupe) $28

Cotton Candy stripe Palazzo pant (blue or taupe) $79


Dresses are often the ones we reach for when on vacation or heading to a warmer climate. They're easy, feminine and easy to pack. Above the yellow is just so sweet and pretty and the nude shade is a great neutral for matching with other things, like a shawl or sandals and other accessories. And note the gorgeous back designs!

Spencer + Shaw tie back dress $128

Doe + Rae cutout back sundress (blush) $89


Another great addition is the ethnic look top. Loose fitting and light. They go with so many other things from shorts, to skirts, to jeans.

M embroidered cotton blouse (white/navy) $70

M embroidered open shoulder blouse (white) $90

Climate change is just something we must face, it's here to stay and for us to fix. Although we feel it's a current phenomenon, two hundred years ago, when Mary Shelley's 'Frankenstein' was published, her husband Percy, wrote of the earth's perceived dire state even then in his poem 'Mont Blanc'. So, this is perhaps not current news. Just something we must again revisit...like last years wardrobe!

Lighten up!!

Let's talk about t shirts. My favourite thing, second only to breathing! In recent years, rising to the forefront of fashion because they're fun, easy, light and often an inexpensive way to add some levity to your wardrobe. No longer just for hanging out at home or cleaning the car, they're currently seen nearly everywhere, yet I doubt they'd have appeared at President Trumps Inaugural Ball...or a court hearing (a few exceptions)! Plum has an amazing collection of witty t shirts. It's time to stock up and wear them out!


Needless to say t shirts go with shorts like coffee and cream. Meant for each other. Such is the above skull with roses. These are such nice fitting t shirts, comprised of rayon and spandex.

Bear Dance skull with roses $35


A fairly common pairing now is with a smart blazer. The above Tobias blazer is just as comfortable as the t shirt with it's rayon, nylon and spandex composition. To wear with: tuck the t shirt into a pencil skirt and add a skinny belt. Just one of many options.

Bear Dance wolf and riding hood $35

Tobias shawl collar jacket (silver or black) $179



Another fantastic option, wear them with kimono's, shawls or ponchos. Plum's acapella oversized shawl is a great match. Loose and free flowing as well as very long. Pick your favourite skinny jeans, and pumps or ankle boots. A great weekend or pub night with the girls, look.

Bear Dance inhale exhale $35

acapella oversized open shawl (black, natural or navy) $79


I wonder, do you think President Trump likes cats? Totally irrelevant. Like cats or not, you have to admit these are very light hearted and funny. Simple enough to throw on a plain t shirt but graphic t's add a bit of whimsy and playful humor.

Bear Dance never trust a man t $35      Bear Dance cat with sombrero $35 

Bear Dance sushi chef cat $ 35             Bear Dance tattoo cats $35

When you think of adding one or two pieces to kick start your wardrobe, these are a great way to play up your sense of humour, stay current and add a breath of fresh air to your closet. Plum has an incredibly irresistible array of choices. No need to have a cat, just a sense of humor.
