Welcome to our September Newsletter
The rain has begun and the weather has turned, but our Boutique is filled with the warm and rich colours of fall! Find cozy sweaters, denim with details, colourful jackets, lightweight layers and unique accessories to amp up your wardrobe for the season.

We love to bring in styles that help you express yourself and stand out no matter where you are in the world.  

If you are travelling to warmer destinations this fall and winter, we have the perfect fashions to travel with you, plus our upcoming Focus Trunk Show is for you! Details below.
Focus Trunk Show: Saturday, September 22
ONE DAY ONLY on SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 22

We are excited to bring in a new line we know many of you will love! Focus Fashions creates clothes centred on simplicity and exceptional quality.

Are you travelling to a warm destination this winter? Then you won’t want to miss our Trunk Show! Focus creates the perfect clothes to take with you. 
As an industry leader for more than 30 years, Focus is an expert in creating high quality garments that stand the test of time. At the Trunk Show, you will find luxurious natural fibres like cotton and linen in classic silhouettes and vibrant colours. They make jackets, blouses, tanks, shorts, capris, pants and dresses. Come in and try on samples of the Spring 2019 Focus Collection and choose from the colour swatches to create the perfect pieces for your trip. Clothing ordered at the Trunk Show will arrive at the Boutique by mid-November.
Even if you aren’t travelling, this is a good opportunity to add versatile, comfortable pieces to your spring/summer wardrobe.

New Arrivals: Marble UK
Each month, new colour and print groupings arrive from Marble. Right now, we have a beautiful Green and Taupe grouping available with Peacock Blue, Black and Magenta groupings arriving later in September and October. 
Marble has stepped up their commitment to natural fabrics that deliver comfort and fabulous silhouettes. Marble’s sweaters are some of the softest we’ve ever had at the Boutique; perfect for fall and winter!
At KC’s, we specifically bring in Marble styles that fit regular and petite women and this label is one of our leading lines that resonates with so many of you (mothers and daughters alike). And you won't find Marble anywhere else in Nanaimo, so stop in and shop the latest arrivals!
New Arrivals: Dolcezza Fall 2018
Featuring bright prints, funky colours, classic Black & Charcoal, leather look fabrics, floral motifs, vintage-style hand knitted looks, winter whites, and many blazers to suit up your day, the new Dolcezza collection is a must!
For Dolcezza’s Simply Art line, they have found distinctive artworks from artists all around the world and adapted them to create the Simply Art look. New this season, find art on puffer coats, quilted jackets, and vests!
New Arrivals: Renuar
Renuar is a favourite because of their 27” inseam pant that arrives in new colours each season. This versatile pant is perfect for petite ladies who don’t want to deal with hemming, but can also work well for regular sizes as the ideal ankle pant. This pull-on style is available in Grey, Silver, Burgundy, Teal, Black, and Jacquard.
Renuar’s quilted jackets and vests have just arrived!

The quilted jackets have both a zipper and snap front closure to keep the winter cold out. A double collar and 2 front zip pockets make this the perfect walking coat. Available in the 3 colours shown: Soft Pink with Silver piping, Black with Camel piping, and Spruce Green with Black piping.
Renuar Quilted Vests are popular every year! Fleece-lined with zip pockets and available in 4 colours. These will not last long, so hurry in to get your size!
New Arrivals: Lindi Jackets
LINDI focuses its design on modern, fashionable garments that are easy wear, reversible, lightweight, water repellent, and wrinkle-resistant. We have brought in an eclectic mix of jackets that work so well for our climate and travelling. Each one is extremely lightweight so you can layer effortlessly.
New Arrivals: Zsiska
Zsiska is handmade, lightweight and nickel-free resin jewellery with bold and fun pieces that elevate any look. The necklaces are a standout because they are fully adjustable and contain no clasp or metal, so they are easy to get on. We have brought in designs from many of their collections. Take a peek at their website to get inspired!
Arriving Soon: Foxcroft Petite Blouses
We have found a new option for petites looking for cotton, no-iron blouses. Perfect for work, layering, and travel, these Blouses are definitely a wardrobe staple. If you’d like to be called when they arrive, please let us know and we can put aside your size and colour choices.

Style Tip: Prints & Tops = The Perfect Match 
Libra
FDJ
Every woman should have a selection of patterned or printed tops in her wardrobe! We bring in a large selection of patterned tops for practical and aesthetic reasons. Here are a few:
THEY CREATE VISUAL INTEREST AND EXPRESS A MOOD
Tops with prints or patterns instantly create visual interest. You can add drama or a punch to your look with the simple addition of a printed top. Be sure to choose prints or patterns with colours that complement your skin tone.
Printed tops also allow you to express different moods. Feeling artzy? Go for a top from our Dolcezza Simply Art Collection. Feeling romantic or want to go ultra feminine? Go for florals, which are huge this year! Want to be on trend instantly? Tartans and plaids are popular for fall; try FDJ’s reversible blouses and jackets in checks and plaids to add colour and style. 
 
PRINTED TOPS ARE FORGIVING 
Worried about your midsection or want to conceal lumps and bumps? Go for a print! Most patterns and prints are visually slimming. Don’t take our word for it though; try a printed top for yourself and see the difference. Patterns and prints camouflage. Solid coloured tops will accentuate your middle, so unless you want to show off your figure, go for tops with visual interest. For extra camouflage and coverage, go for printed tops in weighted fabrics and/or with ruching on the sides.

AND PRINTS HIDE OTHER IMPERFECTIONS
Patterns disguise spills and stains well so if you are clumsy, you’ll love that benefit. Crease or perspiration stains can also be disguised by the right print making them a great choice to bring on your travels.

Whatever your image - classic, feminine, artzy - wear prints to keep your look modern and fresh. You will love the interest it adds to your outfit, plus many prints and patterns are uplifting! As a bonus, you are likely to hear, “Have you lost weight?” or “You look fabulous!” every time you wear a print that you love. 
Don't Miss the Focus Trunk Show!
We look forward to seeing you at the Boutique this month. Shopping for a new season and for upcoming travel is always fun. The Focus Trunk Show is going to be fabulous!

Remember, we are open on Sundays.

Thank you and see you soon,
