With Sleevey Wonders You Can Wear That Dream Dress!

Not A Sleevey Wonder but mimics
what can be done with a Sleevery Wonder

By Anne Waters

Just look at this lovely royal blue dress by Frank Lyman. It is appealing to many more women because it has sleeves. That's because at a certain age, our arms just aren't one of our best features anymore. We love those stylish little cocktail dresses - except for the sleeveless part. Well, don't let the fact that a pretty cocktail dress has no sleeves stop you from adding it to your wardrobe! Sleevey Wonders can save the day! 

Sleevey Wonders can be worn under sleeveless dresses. They make your arms look fabulous instead of flabby! They are made of nylon with just the right amount of spandex to give your arms the support they need. They are machine washable. 

This dress would look great with Sleevey Wonders:

Sleevey Wonders will allow you to wear the styles you love but haven't dared to in years. You can purchase them in styles like waterfall, sheer and lace. They come in many colours besides black and white. Some have full sleeves; others have half or peek-a-boo sleeves.

 Here is another great dress that would look just fabulous with Sleevey Wonders:

Stop by my premier boutique, Anne's on the Avenue today and try Sleevey Wonders for yourself. You will look at our selection of gorgeous designer dresses in a whole new way. Did you know we are the leading destination for fashionistas in the Windsor/Essex county area? Your fashion is always our passion. 

This fall, we are bigger and better than ever with an expanded offering of both national and international designer brands. These new brands include Luc Fontaine, Marble of Scotland and Raffinalla.

Black and Cream Shimmer Sweater:
I absolutely love this shimmering Jane & John colour-block sweater. It features black and cream yarn embedded with sparkles. The model is wearing it with black leggings but it would look great with your favourite pair of pants for the office, too. It would also look fabulous with your favourite pair of jeans on the weekend.

Slim Patterned Pants with Zip Tunic:
If you love styles that are both sophisticated and edgy, this Jane and John outfit is for you. The streetwise slim pants have a camouflage-style pattern in grey and black.

What would we do without stylish tunics to grab during our frenzied morning rush to get dressed? Whether for work or play, tunics are the perfect choice when we are pressed for time. That's why I am always looking for fabulous new tunics for you at my premier boutique, Anne's on the Avenue. Here are just a few of the sensational tunics I have available for you this fall:

Embellished Tricotto Tunic 
This flattering black tunic features an eye-catching, sparkling triangular design down the middle. It also has lovely sheer black sleeves which add sophistication. These features make this dressy tunic a perfect choice for the office.  But it can easily do double duty at the after-hours cocktail party and dinner. 

Splash Dyed Tunic by Miraclebody 
This playful tunic is white with splashes of black. It reminds me of the tie-dyed t-shirts we all had in our closet once upon a time.  I love the loose cowl neck and side pockets. These features make it both comfortable and functional. What more could you ask for in a casual tunic? It looks perfect with jeans. You'll be reaching for this one again and again on carefree weekends. 

Sheer Sleeve Zip Tunic by Rina Scimento 
This pretty Bohemian-inspired tunic is loaded with pretty designer details. It has an attractive black and white pattern on top and at the sleeve cuffs.  The sleeves themselves are a fabulous sheer black. It zips down the middle but also has an adorable ribbon sash you can tie in a bow at the waist. Finally, I love the ribbon borders that accent the bottom hemline. This tunic is long enough that you can wear it as a dress with tights if you so desire.

Aren't these three tunics sensational? They're just a sample of the amazing new designer line-up now available at Anne's on the Avenue.

By Anne Waters

Frank Lyman is one of our favourite Canadian fashion designers here at Anne's on the Avenue. This fall he has created a fabulous collection of versatile pieces for every aspect of your life: work attire, formal attire and casual wear.  These new fashions are sophisticated and street-smart at the same time.  Also, there are pleasing bursts of colour to infuse into your fall wardrobe in this collection.  Here are four sensational styles available right now to show you what I mean:

1. Red sheath dress with leather accents 
This bright red sheath dress is both sophisticated and street-smart. It features an attractive red, ribbed fabric contrasted with black leather trim. I love the edgy black leather stripe that runs down the middle of the dress. Wear it to dinner or to a club. You'll turn heads no matter where you go in this red hot number.  

2. Black and white graphic design top with shawl drape 
This mesmerizing top features a graphic pattern consisting of hypnotic white swirls. This pattern is perfect for hiding belly bulge and other figure flaws. It has a loose cowl neckline. There is a lovely feminine shawl drape hemline on either side. It's a perfect piece for layering. Wear it under a jacket to the office. But if you get too warm, don't be afraid to lose the jacket. This pretty top can hold its own.

3. Bright blue textured jacket 
I love the bright cobalt blue textured fabric of this Frank Lyman jacket. The flashy zipper gives it a modern, street-smart look. But this jacket is still sophisticated enough to wear to the office. In fact, a matching skirt is available. Or pair it with black or white trousers. This versatile jacket will also look great paired with your casual pants on weekends. No matter what, you won't go unnoticed in this dazzling blue number!

4. Black sheath dress with lace sides 
This ultra-feminine sheath dress is both sophisticated and romantic. I love the lace panel sides. The lace is black but the background is a pale pink. It's just lovely!  You will be an instant bombshell in this fashionable dress. Wouldn't it be perfect for a first date? He won't ever forget you.
