Welcome to our February Newsletter
We were happy to work with Lakeside Gardens in January to put on a Fashion Show for residents who enjoyed the afternoon with their friends and family.

With all of the snow, it's hard to believe that spring is on the way. Good news: spring has already arrived at KC's! 

Maybe you are travelling soon or you just want a feeling for the new season's fashions, in any case, stop in and enjoy the colors and styles of spring. 

We are excited to host another Lisette L. Trunk Show. This twice yearly event is the perfect time to find those outstanding pieces to carry your wardrobe from winter to spring and summer. 

Don't forget to pick up your tickets for Fashion for Compassion! 

Please note, we will be open from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm for Family Day on February 13th.
Lisette L. Trunk Show February 12th to 18th

We will have samples for you to try on and fabric swatches available so you can find your perfect fit and fabric. Pants, ankle pants, capris, crops, bermudas, golf shorts and even skorts are available to order in 50 prints and colours! With 7 inseam lengths to choose from, there is a fit for every woman. 

This is a great opportunity to order exactly what you want for spring!

Simon Chang Petites Spring Collection
Back by popular demand and now in-stock!

Simon Chang's Micro Twill Capris and Shorts are great travel bottoms for your winter holiday and essential for summer. Also in this collection, versatile Jackets and Shirts in solid colours and subtle prints. 
JAG Spring Collection
JAG is back in-stock at the Boutique! We have short denim shirts, pull on Bermuda shorts in Stone and Black, plus cute denim crops with a rolled-up cuff.  

The fabric, 72% cotton, 25% rayon and 3% spandex, is breathable and has a nice stretch for comfort.

Tonia Debellis Jackets

Tonia Debellis' Jackets are designed and made in Toronto with high quality fabrics in unique prints. These casual zipper styles are a lighter weight, which makes them perfect for your spring west coast wardrobe.

These pieces are also great for casual travel, finishing off denim or leggings, and as a key layer for comfort.

A variety of hem lengths make this line suitable for regular and petite women. Available in XS to XL or sizes 2-16.
New Spring Tops Just Arrived
Looking for lightweight and breezy tops for travelling in hot climates? We have brought in a new line from Italy called Cherish. Try them for travel or buy ahead for summer!

Fresh from Europe, Marble's unique sweaters, t-shirts and cardigans have arrived. We are expecting more shipments from them throughout the season, but this collection sells out fast, so shop regularly!


Made in Canada tops! Libra makes well-priced novelty tops and tunics in regular and petite styles.

David Cline
Everyone agrees that David Cline tops are second to none! Breathable, casual ¾ sleeve tops that work so well for west coast living or down south. These tops pair beautifully with seasonal denim, capris or shorts. Made in the USA.

Remember, if you prefer ¾ sleeve tops for summer, you will have to shop now; otherwise, you will miss out as the summer collections always feature sleeveless or short sleeved styles.
ZSISKA Jewellery
We bring in a variety of fashion jewellery to complete your look, but this month, we want to highlight ZSISKA Jewellery. The unique pieces flew off the racks last season! 

ZSISKA jewellery is made of resin combined with many other high quality materials including 24k gold leaf and pure silver leaf. After experimenting with different techniques, ZSISKA found a way to make resin as clear as glass and very lightweight. This jewellery is pleasant to wear and many women enjoy the adjustable neck cord, which is especially great for those who are allergic to metal. 

The inspiration of every collection is found in the wonderful diversity of cultures, art, nature, upcoming fashion trends and colours from around the world.  Their new collection will be arriving soon just in time for spring!

Please enjoy exploring their colourful website ZSISKA Jewellery.

Style Tip: How to Wear Printed Bottoms

Like last year, this spring's top trend is printed bottoms - every woman needs at least one pair! 

Joseph Ribkoff
We have printed shorts, skorts, capris, crops, ankle pants and slim plazzos all from Canadian designers. We have  prints to suit every personality and body shape. A printed bottom can be a  fun or sophisticated addition to your wardrobe, so let's add some spring colour!!!
Lisette L.
Here are some tips to help you feel your best in printed bottoms.
  • White blouses are always a good bet for any style.
  • A basic black top will give you a chic pulled together look.
  • If your print is bold like a leopard print or big flowers, stick with a neutral top to play it safe. If you want to go with a solid colour, find something that is in the same seasonal tone as the bottom. For example, autumn tones work well with leopard print. 
  • If it's chilly, tuck in a t-shirt and pair with a long and loose cardigan. Add heels to dress it up or opt for flats for a casual look.
  • FDJ
    Chambray (denim) shirts work great with printed pants/crops for a casual look. You can wear a denim shirt like a lightweight jacket too - add runners and a chunky necklace for a fashionable look.
  • For printed leggings, pair them with an oversized top or sweater in coordinating colour. For a structured look, pair with a fitted blazer and heels.
  • Base your print on your best colour - pick a neutral printed bottom that complements your best colour top. For example, if you look best in soft pastel tops, find a bottom in a grey print. This is always a classy look.
  • Conrad C
    If you like to mix patterns, have fun with a patterned scarf and pants in the same colour family but stick to a neutral top. 
Remember to have fun and enjoy it! As always, if you need help putting together a new look with printed bottoms, we are here for you.
See you soon and remember, we are open on Sundays from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm!
