Synergy two-piece dress – Drizzle & Shine

This lovely skirt is one of the skirts I bought in Seattle at my daughter’s store.

It came with a matching top and I regretted not having bought the top. Thankfully my daughter (owner of Drizzle & Shine eco boutique) had one top left and sent it to me, so now I have three different looks.

Love the unique appliqué floral design, it’s a work of art!

It’s the perfect length for the skirt.

The top is too short for leggings so I’ve added a black top extender. I can wear this top with black pants or white jeans, as well as some other colours.

This time I felt like a little pattern mixing with my “new” houndstooth leggings (one of my dance students found for me at a thrift shop).

The best part is that Synergy Organic Clothing is a fair trade company.

Every month Jean has a promotion for a good cause. This month was for Chimpanzee Sanctuary Northwest and at the event a $450 spending spree at Drizzle & Shine was auctioned off. I was happy to be included with Jean in the advertising for Drizzle & Shine.

And this photo was shown on the big screen the night of the auction.

    Awwwww, first of all, your outfit is sooooooo cute. Love it. The black with the big floral design is adorable. Second of all, I had no idea you were a dance teacher. That’s great. I danced for a number of years myself.
    Hope you’re doing well Carmen. I bet you’re getting some nice Spring weather now eh.
    🙂 ❤

      Thanks very much Staci! Dancing keeps me fit and it doesn’t feel like work. You know the saying; if you love what you do, you never have to work a day in your life. I get paid for doing what I love. As for the weather, it’s a typical spring in Ontario: some days cool, the next day warm, the next day rain. The best thing about Spring is the blossoms. Magnolias are gone, but the lilacs are in full bloom and the fragrance is heavenly.

    You are so beautiful, just like another flower among all those blooming magnolias. This two piece dress looks great on you and I love the accessories.

    I’m glad Jean sent you a matching top with the skirt, now the set is perfect. I love this print and I love the game of black with white, which is always elegant and at the same time modern. You, as always, look wonderful in the photos, and this outfit is perfect for your graceful and delicate figure. The pants are also nice and the look looks good, but I stay with your image with the skirt, with it you look wonderful. The background of flowers is beautiful and enhances all your natural beauty.

      Thank you so much Josep-Maria! I was very happy that Jean had one top left because it makes a complete outfit and I can make it look like a dress when I wear it together. My mother had some two piece dresses and I have three now. The magnolias are gone but the lilacs are blooming.

      Have a wonderful week!
