New Arrivals: French Dressing Jeans (FDJ)

Our first fall shipment of FDJ has arrived with more from this line arriving over the next few weeks. We are loving the new tops and sweaters - some highlights:
  • Great fall colours of Plum/Merlot, blues and greys.
  • Watercolour and cloud striped tops with ruched sides that work well for both regular and petite ladies. Made with breathable viscose and spandex.
  • The multi-coloured printed crew necks with long sleeves and lace trim at the bottom look great with denim.
  • The jersey knit printed tunics with funnel necks are a fantastic style to pair with all the fall denim.
  • Rhapsody Blue printed pop-over tunic blouse is the perfect blouse with a 3/4 sleeve and deep hues. Made from a poly-viscose blend for a lightweight style.
  • New sweaters include fine knit cardigans in solid colours of Black, Grey and Magenta. 60% viscose with 40% nylon blend means they hold their shape beautifully.

All of their tops coordinate and work with their denim and bottoms. FDJ's tops are popular, so if you are a fan of their 3/4 sleeve and lightweight styles, shop now for best selection. Sizes available: 4-16. 
FDJ's LOVE Jeans are back
The flattering LOVE Premium Denim has just arrived in Denim and Black. Let us know if you are interested in Grey or Plum as well. 

LOVE Premium Denim is designed by women for women, with unique 35 percent Lycra technology that instantly slims and flatters your figure for that love at first fit. We carry two styles - Suzanne (regular rise, straight leg, sits at natural waist, available in regular and petites) and Olivia (mid-rise with slim leg, sits just below the navel, available in regular and petites). Each fit is meant to flatten the tummy and lift the behind, making you feel as if each sidewalk is your own personal catwalk!

This line is for our ladies that live in leggings during the fall and winter. Fun and casual styles are perfect for your everyday wear.

Style Tip: 
Your New Favourite Shades
by Kim McMurray

Beautifully warm sunshine means longer and brighter days, so naturally you must be reaching for your favourite pair of sunglasses. Or maybe you're thinking it's time to find a new favourite? Whatever your style, choosing sunglasses to suit your face shape is yet another piece to achieving that perfect head-to-toe look.
The four popular categories of face shapes are: oval, heart, square, and round. With every face shape it is important to remember your frame size. This means if you are more petite, go for smaller frames. For those of you that are more medium/average, flatter yourself with medium-size frames. If you are taller, make a statement and showcase larger frames.
In general, opposites attract with face shapes to be balanced. So here's what you need to look for:
Oval: Your face shape is naturally balanced, so most styles will also naturally look great on you! Just remember to choose according to your frame size!

Heart: Your face shape is wider in the forehead with beautifully defined cheekbones and narrower in the jawline. (You usually have a widow's peak too!) Opt for styles that are wider on the bottom. Sorry heart-shaped ladies, aviators are not your best, try wayfarers, cat-eye or round styles instead.

Square: Your face shape has a straight hairline and a sexy defined jawline. To soften the angles, choose styles that are wider than the fullest part of your face with rounded edges.

Round: Your face shape naturally youthful. It is shorter than the Oval making it roughly as wide as it is long. You'll do the opposite as the Square face shape and opt for frames with defined angles.
