Holiday Style Inspiration: The Hot Pink Strapless Dress

If you do not already know, I am a HUGE fan off accessories.  I cannot reiterate enough the importance of simple cuts 'n colors accentuated by necklaces, scarves, earrings (for those with pierced ears- I really should get on that btw...), bangles, what have you.  But fashion is a complex creature and there comes a time when an accessory is not needed and if anything, discouraged.  Enter the hot pink strapless dress.  You can spot it a mile away.  Should you decide to rock one of these numbers this holiday season, you can breath a sigh of relief, no complications- just you, the dress and your fabulous smile... oh and maybe a pair of great heels (society frowns upon girls who wear dresses and no shoes). :P

New Canadian Online Store!; Canada’s first online designer dress store launches  in December!

Have you ever tried shopping online to find that prefect, dress from an American department store, only to find out that they don’t ship to Canada or that you’re left with paying high import fees? FINALLY, out of her own frustrations Tia Star, a Canadian entrepreneur, is launching on December 1, 2009 making it convenient and accessible for Canadian women to have THAT dress. is Canada’s first online dress store that will carry a variety of dresses for special occasions; wedding, cocktail, prom and New Year’s eve dresses from designers such as Nicole Miller, HYPE, Aidan Mattox and Maggy London. Working with designers in New York City, Los Angeles, Vancouver, Toronto and Montreal shoppers will have access to stylish, reasonably priced dresses, eliminating the hassle of cold weather, sore feet, crowds and hours upon hours of search.

FYI on the return policy: If it doesn't fit send it back on them and they pay for return shipping on the first 3 orders, and you have 30 days to return it!  Not too shabby...
