Deal Alert – Miss Sixty Sauvanne Sunflower Dress

June 16th, 2009

Miss Sixty Sauvanne Sunflower Dress Miss Sixty Sauvanne Sunflower Dress C$139.00 on sale for C$97.00! Everything about this soft jersey dress is unbelievably flattering, the flutter sleeves with floral trims which can hide your upper arm if you aren’t particularly confident about them being toned enough, the open square neckline elongating the neck, the floral bib taking its place in a ladylike accessory, and the soft lemony shade is perfect for summer!

bluesilkblouse_croppants Never thought I’d wear them, but here they are…pants with elasticband! Oh no, lol! I got these Gauzy Capris from Old Navy. These are soooo lightweight and breezy. The smocked waistband is super comfy. I got them in size L so the waistband will have a long stretch to go. I have to wear some kind of heels so I don’t look too sloppy. Obviously if you don’t need the extra room, definitely go with your normal size so they don’t look like they are hanging off you. The blue silk blouse I picked up the other day from Ricki’s. I like that it drapes nicely and that it doesn’t draw attention to my tummy 😉

My latest lust for shoes is focused on these fierce hybrids, the bootie sandals. Seriously these are insanely hot. They will be the big focus of your outfit. Anything goes with these babies, short shorts, poufy bell skirts, shirtdresses…these heels will inject a major dose of fierceness and take away some ultragirliness.

These Nanette Lepore Hold Me Tight Platform Sandals ($375 on sale for $187.50!!) are the epitome of her style. Don’t you just love the contrast topstitching and pleated raffia banding? The 1 inch light wooden platform also is such a nice contrast to the dark chunky heel and leather sole. Absolutely adore these!
