Smart Set taupe dress

My route in the shopping mall do not usually vary. Recently at Coquitlam Centre, I ventured upstairs to Suzy Shier. It offers young, modern and chic items at an affordable price. I find it comparable to Dynamite. The material renders most items good only for a few (if not one) seasons but the low price makes it affordable to discard. They were having their buy one get second at half price. I walked away with two dresses.

The first one $11:
Sofft wedge shoes ($30) sample sale
Stella and Dot River Lariat $69
The cotton material makes it comfortable to wear and I love this heathered taupe shade. It came with it's own braided belt but I sometimes switch it up with my own. I think it was supposed to be a tunic but score one for petites - it becomes a dress.

The second one $28:
It needs to be hemmed. (Excuse the wet hair; couldn't wait.)

Here it is after taking up the hem.

Jessica Nude peep-toe heels with t-strap $12.50
The upper portion is a wrap top. The bottom has pleats that disguise a big tummy like mine.

The only thing I don't like is the thin padding at the shoulders. Not too noticeable except to me but not too bothersome.

Do you have any luck at this store?


  1. You look slender with bove knee length hemline.

  2. @Ruth: I agree. With hem below my knees, I look like I'm missing legs!
