How much have you been enjoying this week’s posts friends?  Has it given you some inspirations … that you’re gonna try this Spring? Hope so! 🙂

All week long, Cassie from Style Cassentials, and I have been putting our own twists on several Spring trends.

And to end the week and our collaborative series… today we’re talking about…

Spring Trend:  Bolder Shoulders

unspecified-16I’ve said it earlier, and I’m saying it again:  I have not been wow’d by retailers this Spring. :/

Not enough to be spending my hard-earned Canadian Dollars with the exchange rate being so pitiful.

But when I saw THIS off-the-shoulder number from SmartGlamour … and I was a goner! ❤

Smart Glamour’s Marilyn Convertible Dress…is all kinds of YES!

Note: this floral print is now sold out – but there are two other prints available + tons of solids +  new jersey prints for Summer too!Petite Plus, Meow! for Smart Glamour

The pattern of this coral floral is just swoon-worthy ❤ ❤ ❤ Totally wearable in the Spring AND Summer months.

AND it can be worn 3 Different ways!!!

  1. The ruffle is attached at the front & back so it can be worn with one up/one down for a tropical look
  2. The ruffle can be worn around your arms for an off-the-shoulder look, and
  3. The ruffle can be worn as a tube dress

Um, so that’s basically 3 whole different dresses wrapped into 1 gorgeous, rich fabric! ❤

What’s great about SmartGlamour clothes is that (for a small fee) you an customize your order to YOUR measurements and have your pieces fit you perfectly!smart glamour petite plus meow!

That’s what I did.  I also asked that the length of the skirt stop just at my knee to show off my gams 😉

AND cuz of its body con fit … you can wear it under a full skirt, and get 3 MORE different looks outta this dress!!!

Spring Double Feature: Stripe Storm

Happy Hump Day!!!

EVERYDAY THIS WEEK  Cassie from Style Cassentials and I are exploring and putting our own twists on several Spring trends!

Today’s Spring Trend:  Stripe Storm

Be they Horizontal, Vertical, Asymmetrical …

Every which way there is a stripe storm ahead for Spring and Summer this year!!!

This stripped linen dress is lightly lined, with vertical and horizontal stripes AND buttons all down the front could possibly be the trifecta of plus-sized *DON’TS* according to “Style Rules” for the Curvy/Plus/Full-Figured/Fat Babe that some people out there subscribe to.

I have been on the hunt for the last few months and nothing has really woo’ed me enough to spend my hard-earned money on.

But Old Navy has really stepped up their game this season…and I’ve found lots of luck in their straight sizes.

Just look at it!!!  It’s fantastic!!! 🙂

unspecified-5
I couldn’t help myself – this Boho/70s/cowgirl western vibe isn’t for everyone. But I’m a fan!!! ❤

Fringe was also a big trend at New York’s Fashion Week (Spring 2016)!!!  And I don’t just mean accessories.  These stylishly-slashed-edges are lining skirts, dresses and jackets in addition to bags, shoes and earrings that started appearing everywhere last Fall..

Yes, any way you slice it, fringe is in.

I kinda boarded this fringe-train this past Fall, introducing just little elements of it … like purses +tassels.  But knowing that this trend is gonna be everywhere this Spring, I was on the hunt to find that perfect piece that suits my vibe.

And then I found this brown suede vest….and was finally able to introduce the shredded hemlines into an outfit! 😀

unspecified-6
How I Got The Look:  Fringed suede vest, Winners; Stripped dress, Old Navy; Hat, Reitmans; Bracelets, Forever21; Platform sandals and Toupe booties, NineWest; Blown-glass necklace, old.

Cassie went for colourful stripes and a sweet off-the-shoulder black top.  Adorbz!

Easter Outfit

What did YOU wear this weekend for Easter?

We had lovely weather in Toronto this weekend (yay!) … sooooooooo I needed to bust out this cheery springtime perfect number for Easter Sunday, as I spent it out-and-about with family and friends.

Here’s my Easter look:
FullSizeRender-29Yes, Yes they are.  There are little Russian Nesting Dolls on my eff’ing dress!!! 😮

The Cutest right?!? ❤

I picked this up during Tatyana’s crazy-bananas-sale this past Fall…and now that the weather is finally cooperating, I’m thrilled to be able to wear this more.
FullSizeRender-28It’s a cotton, scoop neck spaghetti strap circle dress. Unlined.  Which makes it super comfy for all day wear and impromptu dancing 🙂

This dress was MADE for a crinoline … but for everyday wear, that’s wayyyy too much trouble.

Truth be told, it’s a size bigger than I need. 😦  And as tightly as a make the straps they always fall down.  Buuuut it was an amazing deal and it needed to be mine!

Oh, I also shorted the hem line a bit to better suit my petite height.

Love the dress?  Want the dress?  Well, its back in stock for THIS season…just sayin’ 😉

FullSizeRender-30
How I Got The Look: Pale pink cropped sweater, Old Navy; Dress, Tatayana Boutique; Jean sneaks, Roxxy; Cat-eyed sunnies, Ardene

If you follow the blog religiously, then you might remember this frock making its debut appearance in my November to Remember post…take a peek now if you like.

Happy Easter everyone!  Hope you had a lovely weekend however you spent it.

And remember….all this week there will be discounted chocolate everywhere….get yourself some! 😉
