Marnie and Karen
What an exciting Joseph Ribkoff womenswear Trunk Show last month! Thanks to all customers who became fashion insiders by ordering their favourite spring and summer fashion must-haves. A glimpse of the Fall 2017 Collection had us looking ahead and excited for new trends too. Congratulations to Debra Harkness and Marnie Swanson who each won a $100 Joseph Ribkoff Gift Certificate! 





 
Thank You for a Wonderful 10 Years!
One of the highlights each year - raising funds for Nanaimo Hospice!
We couldn't have arrived here without you! KC's Boutique is now 10 years strong! Thank you for your loyalty and supporting our local business! 

Online shopping sure has spiked since we started in 2007, but nothing makes you more confident about your style than coming into our store and trying on the clothing and accessories that catch your eye. It's all about the colour, detail, and the right fit for you! 

It's been amazing to see clothing from our store travel the world on our beautiful customers! Here's Judy in Maui this year. Thank you for sharing with us.

We thrive on helping women feel comfortable and beautiful. We've enjoyed sharing our expert eye and advice as we help you choose pieces that are exactly what you're looking for, and we look forward to continuing to do so for years to come!
 
I t's no secret that the fashion industry is a tough road for some. We've seen the closing of several bright fashion lights, including Canadian lines Ingenuity, Louben, and Nueva. 
Connie at the Joseph Ribkoff head office in Montreal last year. Made in Canada and going strong!
Many others have stopped making petite styles. While that's been hard for fans, KC's Boutique has found new favorites such as Marble (designed in Scotland) and Lisette L. (made in Canada) among consistent greats like Joseph Ribkoff.  As requested, we've also focused on bringing in more clothing made of natural fibres, including rayon, cotton, and linen.  We're here for you! 

Thank you again for helping us reach this important 10-year milestone. We appreciate your support and look forward to seeing soon!

New Arrivals: Gilmour Clothing



Look fresh and feel cool with Gilmour's made in Vancouver bamboo clothing! Ideal for summer, this lightweight knit is thermal regulating and helps evaporate moisture quickly. 

We have a range of tops including the Bamboo Floaty Tee and Flutter Top in white, green, royal blue, and hot pink. Dress up your look with a smart Bamboo Pencil Skirt in denim, white, or black. The Bamboo Crop Legging is perfect to pair with a dress or tunic. We also love the new Bamboo French Terry Throw On for a comfortable chic look.  

New Arrivals: Flatter Me Belts
We love these ingenious belts! They're machine washable, create zero belt buckle bulge, and bring in the waist to help you save on alterations. They also cover your pant button, so it doesn't peek through your tops. They can even be worn on your pull-up pants without belt loops.  

We sell at least one every day because they are a must-have for every woman!  Now available in Taupe, Black, Cream, Navy, Burgundy, and Grey.
Parkhurst Covi Wraps

Parkhurst wraps are extremely versatile and great for travel or our cool West Coast evenings. Available in Denim Blue, White, Black, Black and White Mix, Coral, Lime Green and many more colours. 

Congratulations to Carolyn Hancox who won the Parkhurst Covi Wrap from the Mother's Day Giveaway! 
Style Tip: Wear Capri Pants with Confidence
Some ladies feel capris make them look frumpy, and they can if you make the wrong choice. At the Boutique we often hear: "I'm too short to wear capris." Yes it can be tricky, but we're going to help you out with some style tips! The reality is that capris can look great on anyone tall or short! It's a matter of finding the right proportions for you. 

LENGTH: Avoid capris that end at mid-calf as this is the widest part of your lower leg. Do wear them just below that - between your calf and ankle is the ideal hem length. You want the eye to flow down to the narrowest part of the leg for the most flattering look.

WIDTH: To create a longer, sleeker look, wear a tapered or straight leg capri. Baggier, wide-leg capris are suited for those who are a bit heavier in the thigh.

WAIST: It may be counter-intuitive, but if you have shorter legs, try a higher waist. This draws the eye up and helps the leg appear longer. If you have a short torso, wear a  mid-rise capri to achieve balance.

SHOES: Short legs look best with a bit of a heel. 
This elongates your exposed calf. For everyone, n ude shoes help your legs appear longer as they blend in with your skin tone. The second best shoe choice is the same colour as your capri.

At KC's Boutique, we have capris and bermuda shorts in all colours and styles to suit regular and petite women, and this year many feature POCKETS! 

Capris are a comfortable and versatile summer option. We now see people wearing them to casual weddings, paired with a fancy top. Many of our petite ladies prefer our Bermuda Shorts as they show a bit more leg. Remember, we look best when we style according to our body's proportions. 

Come in and try these styles soon as we are nearing the end of the summer collections!
Thank you for your business! We look forward to seeing you this June at KC's.

Sincerely,
Karen & Connie
