It’s Week 2 and time to get down to basics.  First of all, thank you to all who shared or took advantage of Week 1 of my 50% off sale. Enjoy your new Patti pencil skirt!

Why 50% now

Why 50% off and why now? Because 2020 is not a normal year, and this is not a normal holiday season. And, to be completely honest and transparent, I need to clear out my inventory. So, the countdown is on until the end of the year!

The Maxine

This week, here’s an opportunity to add to your year round foundational pieces at half the price. It’s the Maxine reversible tank. Not only, can you get 2 tops for the price of 1, but the Maxine is reversible so you’re really getting 4 tops for the price of 1. The Maxine has a V neck on one side and a round neck on the other. You can wear it front to back and back to front.

How to wear it

For a professional look, I like to wear the round neck in front under a jacket or cardigan.

Then slip off the jacket and show off the V back. Add some accessories and a pair of heels, and voilá, you’re all dressed up.

Then flip the top around with the V in front and you’ve flipped the look around. It’s casual weekend wear with jeans and a cozy sweater, or yoga pants and a hoodie.

The Maxine has a less tapered fit and a loose fitting liner inside for extra coverage and added comfort.

Functional design

The best part is the step in and pull up design. It’s functional – no more struggling to pull things over your head. It’s the opposite of the tight sports bra tops that are so hard to get out of. And, it’s practical – no need to mess up your hair or makeup when getting dressed.

Plus, the breathable bamboo is super soft and silky against your skin. It’s an all-season basic. Wear it on its own during the summer months, and layer it under your tops, sweaters, jackets, and hoodies during the cooler months.

Your choices

There are 3 colours to choose from: classic black, fiery fuchsia and a silky blue/grey neutral. It comes in 4 sizes: 1(S), 2(M), 3(L), and 4(XL)

Finally, it’s easy to care for. Simply toss in the machine with cold water, and hang to dry.
