New Arrivals: Marble's Spring Collection
Marble’s new collection has started to arrive at the Boutique! This line arrives in colour groupings for the next few months so there is always something fresh to discover. This new season features even more natural fabric blends than before, plus lots of details!
Featuring bracelet length sleeves to make it easy to stay cool but covered; coconut buttons that enhance the natural fabrics; and touches of fringe to keep things feminine and fun.
Be bold with an open shoulder or keep it classic with a "My Marble" tried and true silhouette. Choose styles that you have come to love from Marble or explore their new and exciting styles to satisfy your adventurous side! Marble is happy to be able to offer you the best of both worlds for Spring/Summer 2019.

Style Tip: Improve Your Mood with Fashion
Is there a connection between MOOD and CLOTHING?

After ten years of dressing women and seeing their moods shift after trying on colourful and fun fashions, we don’t need a psychology degree to see the connection between fashion and mood.

Throw on happy, bright colours and your mood will improve; you’ll feel like your walking on sunshine!

If you’re wearing something drab or that just doesn’t fit or feel right, it’s easy for your style to ruin your day. Dressing your best frees up your energy to focus on other things in your life!
If you’re feeling stuck with your wardrobe or you don’t find yourself enjoying getting dressed every day, keep these tips in mind...

Change up your clothes. Do you consistently buy the same styles? Try something new! And don’t forget to change up your wardrobe as your lifestyle changes. Fashion is a great way to express your evolution into a mature, confident woman! 

Save time and money by understanding your personal style and body shape. Experienced dressers in an established clothing boutique are well-versed in the right styles and fits for all body shapes. Experiment with different styles, colours, and fits until you find the right balance of what feels good and what looks good on you.
When you do find your personal style, put together a mix-and-match wardrobe that makes it effortless and fun to get dressed in the morning. Ditch the baggy sweats and oversize sweaters you may have been hiding under and feel the difference! Buy clothes that fit well.

When you wear clothing that evokes positive feelings and flatters your figure, not only will you look fantastic, but you will feel confident too. This spring, add colourful fashion and fun pieces to your wardrobe and enjoy the positive connection between fashion and mood.

If you're not sure how to find your fit and style, the staff at KC’s are always here to help.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
Do not be afraid of colour and bold prints this spring! We keep seeing ladies surprised at just how great they look and feel in the latest styles.

Remember, we are open on Sundays and new fashions are arriving often so stop in regularly to find your new favourites!

Sincerely,
Karen & Connie
