                                                          Every T ime!
                                                         If the lowest price is your only priority, you can get a bra for $1.00. I’ve seen them! Now,
                                                         I didn’t try one on, not that the store even had a fitting room, but I didn’t have to try it
                                                         on to know that this bra would not do what I needed it to do. A waste of a little bit of
                                                         money is still a waste.
                                                         Lately, I’ve been getting inundated with news about the slowing economy. Like, because
                                                         of these current economic times, we should really start to be careful with our hard
                                                         earned dollars. I don’t know about you, but I’ve never needed to wait for a certain kind
                                                         of economic environment before paying attention to the value I get for the dollar I
                                                         Hear me out: I don’t know where this statistic is coming from, but all I have to do is
                                                         look around me and I can see that it’s true, 85% of women are wearing the wrong
                                                         size bra! You might say, “Big deal, in these economic times, does it really matter if my
                                                         bra size is off by a cup or two?” The answer is “YES, it matters!” The larger the cup, the
                                                         more it matters. I haven’t found the statistic, but I’m sure one exists that will tell us the
                                                         percentage of women having chronic back pain, neck pain and associated headaches
                                                         or migraines that are directly attributable to wearing the wrong size bra. Which makes
                                                         more sense, better living through chemistry (prescription pain killers), or getting a bra
                                                         that fits?
                                                         Hopefully, it didn’t take much for you to agree that you do want value and you do want
                                                         to feel (and look) your best. Vicanie’s is where you will get those things.
                                                         While many other businesses are laying off more employees every day, Vicanie’s is

                                                         more than ever, it’s critical to a business’ success.

adopt and incorporate into your wardrobe this
Make it work for you: Nearly all neutral
shades are applicable for this trend, flattering

many tones of neutral together (such as grey,
white and tan) and create a completely neutral,
but interesting, outfit.

3       Dinner Jackets & Vests
No longer just for office wear or dinner par-
ties, these seemingly dressier pieces are being
incorporated into casual wear in a laid back
and funky manner.
Make it work for you: Pair a dark dinner
jacket or a grey vest with a t-shirt and jeans
(fold the jacket sleeves up a little to edge it up).
To tone it down a bit, try a similar look with
a light colored jacket or blazer or a simple vest
over a button down shirt. Add a Spring scarf
to your outfit for the ultimate in polished yet
unpretentious fashion.

                                                            Watercolour dots and floral designs with the feel of silk painting dominate the prints.
