Once upon a time...

April 19, 2017

"I don't like princesses!!" my 9 year old daughter proclaimed to her very generous Aunt who offered her a princess-type gift. Aside from the pre-programmed maternal feelings of mortification, there also drifted away some of my 'Mommy' dreams of dresses and clean, neat hair! Per...

Construction zone

March 28, 2017

Quality 'matters' in every aspect of life...cars, people, education, garbage bags (ever have one spontaneously break?)...Garments are clearly no exception. The construction and fabrication being the key points. I spoke with Katie O'Brien, Plum's buyer and co-owner, about what she loo...

Don't forget your MINIMUM PURCHASE coupon (until March 26,2017) Unless you're employed at a workout studio, you can probably leave the hoodie, yoga pants and performance apparel at home for the weekend. There are ample ways to look stylish while still accommodating comfortable travels to wo...

Worth the weight

March 14, 2017

Don't forget your MINIMUM PURCHASE coupon (until March 26,2017) Weight...yes, I went there! No one wants to talk about it. The only thing worth 'more weight' it seems, is growing a new human! In fact, even those who are 'thin' do not want to hear about it. So, I guess it's b...

Let it go or LET'S GO

December 29, 2016

As we say good bye to a potentially abominable year (no I'm not just talking about the snow), we think back. Some of us would rather not, after all, a veritable playlist of musicians left us, questionable leadership voted in, earthquakes in Italy, Haiti getting hit again and newsworthy closer to...

If December was a day of the week....

November 30, 2016

If December was a day of the week, I'm sure it would be Saturday. Because now begins the month of gift giving along with abundant parties, gatherings and merriment. And what to wear! Recently I enjoyed a lovely night with my colleagues at Plum's annual Christmas party. My favourite part (asi...

All in the details

October 26, 2016

What does it take to design a gorgeous dress like this one? A lot of creativity, skill and a superior eye for fashion. I asked Plum's designer Claudia "What was your inspiration for this dress"? Her surprising answer was..."It started with the fabric, I loved the strong hounds too...
