Must have for summer 2011

Must have Fashion staple…The maxi dress!!! All the celebs are wearing them. The Maxi appeared in our stores two summers ago, but were slow to take off. In true Canadian style, we have seen the maxi around for a couple seasons, and now we can’t get enough. A little slow to covet the newest trend, but when we do…look out!

The maxi can be worn as casual attire to the beach or around the pool. Dress it up with some fabulous jewels, and go out on the town. The maxi is also appropriate for office dressing, so considering it can go all directions, it is a great investment for your wardrobe this year. Wear it alone, top it with a vest or jacket, or even put a tee over and belt it. Flattering for most shapes, you can’t go wrong in a maxi. Just be sure it’s not too tight, as you don’t want it hugging your hips. It should drape straight down .

Don’t wait too long - get your Maxi today, and see how many ways you can wear yours.
