 We are summer dreaming today and this Shanti dress in coral is not helping! With visions of summer (and sugar-plums) dancing in our heads – it can all be reality for $235.  Shanti has a V-neck with a lace overlay. The angled lines on the dress make it one of our most flattering fits. It can be purchased in store or online at!

Look #1: Caribbean Cool

With your holiday coming up, the #1 item to pack is the Trista dress! Comfort meets style with this vibrant coral color. Sophie lets this dress shine in the coastal sun all on it’s own with minimal accessories! A statement Earth Essence necklace ($169 – Available at Blushing) and her own H&M flats do the trick! All she needs is a coconut to go along with this Caribbean cool look!

Look #2: Fashionista of the Opera

When you go to a summer performance don’t compromise your style! Spice it up with the Trista dress and stand out on Opera night.  Sophie shows us that you can dress up this summer outfit for all occasions! Paired with a To Desire black silk scarf /wrap ($198 – Available at Blushing) a custom Davie & Chiyo clutch ($100 – Available at Blushing) she is ready for a night out. Adding a JFG black crystal necklace ($134 – Available at Blushing), Brava hoop earrings ($26 – Available at Blushing), and Friis & Company peep-toe pumps, Sophie isn’t the Phantom but rather brings the Fashion to the Opera!

Look #3: Fun in the Sun

For a sunny weekend – put on your soon-to-be favorite Trista dress and head outside! Don’t worry about the sun or your purse with this over the shoulder bag from Friis & Company ($89 – Available at Blushing). Adding simple jewelry like a Rachel Robinson pearl and crystal bracelet ($220 – Available at Blushing) and tear-drop earrings with pearls ($78 – Available at Blushing) is sophisticated yet understated. Sophie added her own sunnies and sandals for the perfect seawall walk in style!

Sorry we weren’t able to blog Meet the Dress on Monday! We have been busy planning our upcoming event and as a result have been in party mode! Join us next Wednesday at 5:30pm to meet ‘The Real Housewives of Vancouver’ Director Shannon Nering. Need a dress for the event? We have the perfect one – Trista Reversible Cowl Neck Dress at $185.  Trista has a cowl neck and is reversible – front to back. This comfortable, giving, and flattering jersey dress is one of the best for the upcoming Spring/Summer party circuit. It can be purchased in store or online at!

Look #1: Posh Pose

It’s easy to strike a pose with this posh ensemble! With the cowl neck in the front, Sophie is showing off those shoulders with a sexy cut-out back. Wearing a delicate pair of crystal earrings by Rachel Robinson ($56 – Available at Blushing) and statement shoes from Friis & Company Sophie is perfectly posh! Work it!

Look #2: Extraordinary Office

Who says you can’t be comfortable and fashionable whilst at work? Sophie shows us that you can have your cake and eat it too – at the office, that is! Pairing this adorable dress with a Shelley Klassen fitted jacket that has a hint of sparkle ($312 – Available at Blushing) Sophie makes this dress classic and comfortable work appropriate attire. Accessorized with an Erin Miller necklace ($120 – Available at Blushing) and Friis & Company peep-toe pumps, Sophie makes all fellow co-workers envious with her extraordinary office outfit!

Look #3: Peep Show

This dress is perfect if you are going from work to cocktail party! One of the advantages of a reversible dress is that before you can say “one-two-switch-a-roo” you have a new outfit! Sophie switched the cut-out to the front giving us a sexy and sultry look.  Whilst she did pair her outfit with her favorite pair of Friis & Company peep-toes,  the gorgeous peep show cut-out speaks for itself as this dress alone is a statement. Peep away – the Shelley Klassen way!
