So I just bought the cutest dress at Plum. I don't normally pay $145 for a dress, but it's super cute and different, and comfortable. Okay, what I like about it the most is it's really flattering. My bod looks great!And another great thing about  dresses-they make getting dressed in the morning really easy. And though I'm very happily married- I do notice another thing about wearing dresses...guys LOVE them! There's something so intrinsically feminine about a dress, that I guess dudes respond to! Really! Single ladies take note and give it a try on your next first date!This pic is the dress I bought.Soooo cute on!  ... read the full post and reader comments

There were many sheer pieces in the Spring 2011 Ready To Wear lines that were both romantic and sexy.  Many pieces were shown in neutrals and bright colourful prints including blouses, skirt, and dresses.

Try pairing a sheer floral Plum blouse with a pair of trousers or denim this Spring!

It's only January and I'm already wanting to put my winter coat into storage.  I blame this dreary Monday in Vancouver.  Before I do something drastic like book a flight to Hawaii, I thought I'd brainstorm some ways to add a bit of sunshine into my wardrobe.

Try layering your best spring and fall pieces together.  Not only does it add warmth, but you get extra wear out of your favourite clothing!

Mixing Prints

Follow

ImageMixing prints is a playful way to add personality and style to your wardrobe. The art in not looking like a walking optical illusion is in considering a few easy guidelines:

Even if oversized is in this season, you still want to look like you are well put together. Fit is the important guideline in dressing well and this is no exception. Frumpy, ill-fitting garments will only make you look like the only reason you are jumping on this trend is because you are out of laundry soap.  

Mixing prints of differing scales is an easy way to begin styling your prints. For instance, thinly striped knit top, layered under a cozy thick striped cardigan is approachable. Considering the scales of some prints, such as a houndstooth, you can really consider these to be a solid, so you can be more brazen with your other print.

Colour is also key in mixing patterns.  Having your prints in a similar colour range will allow them blend together enough while still maintaining visual interest.  Or, by pairing a neutral pattern with a brightly coloured pattern, the prints won’t compete for the eye’s attention so they will work together in a way that’s easy on the eyes.

Once you have these three guidelines in mind, consider the nature of the pattern and find your own combo through trial and error. Florals and stripes are classic examples if you are in a French mood (C’est tres chique! ) While stripes of varying sizes and scales are a beginner mixer’s dream and very nautical in Spring. Mix ikat prints with stripes, plaids with leopard, in small or large doses. The real trick is to be confident and have fun!  ... read the full post and reader comments
