Spice Up Your Life

Lei Chic After watching last night's Closing Ceremony, you've come to a few mind-blowing revelations.

The Olympics (and quite possibly NBC's reputation) are over.

The Spice Girls are most definitely not.

You hate to admit it, but last night's rousing performance has you craving more spice in your life. You're left with two options: either wait for a full-fledged comeback, or opt for something a little more immediate.

Like Cinnamon Girl's sleek new dresses, available now.

This local line, long-known for its sweet, floral prints, just released a series of modern, perfectly-draped pieces that can easily take you from the office to a fashionable night out.

Lei Chic Be prepared to stop traffic in the Mayu dress, with its ultra-flattering cowl neckline and waist-defining sash. Throw on the Azura dress with three-quarter puff sleeves, keyhole neckline and drawstring waist for a slightly more casual look. And, for the ultimate curve-enhancing effect, try the Zara dress with color block panels and adorable side pockets.

All three dresses come in multiple colors, like grey, black, navy and taupe, and are made from a lightweight, silky-soft viscose knit blend, which means they can be worn alone now or layered over tights and boots come fall.

Just make sure you leave the sequins and sky-high platforms at home.

Mayu, Azura and Zara dresses, $72 each, Cinnamon Girl. Click here for a list of boutiques or shop online.
