We wanted to thank everyone who attended our Travel Show this past January. It was a great success and we were happy to see many fulfill their travel dreams, get their suitcases packed and buy the perfect dresses for upcoming weddings. We had over 250 in attendance and are already planning next year's event with Cruise Holidays - January 10, 2015. It will be bigger and better! 
Looking forward, we will be the West Coast Women's Show this March and we look forward to seeing you there. Get your discount entry coupon below.

renuarNew Arrivals: Renuar and Katherine Barclay
Renuar and Katherine Barclay collections have arrived in red, black and white travel groupings. 

Renuar is about polkadots this spring with their sporty collection of zipper jackets, shorts, capris and pants all in regular and petite sizes 2-14. Washable and suitcase-friendly too!

We love this baby blue suit from Katherine Barclay - it's youthful and fun. The pant features a yoga waist with a narrow leg. The jacket is a one button boyfriend style with roll up cuffs and striped detail. It's quite sexy actually!


topsWest Coast Casual: Tops for Spring
Eugenia is a line made in Vancouver and features 100% cotton t-shirts, zipper cardigans and cardigan twin sets. If you insist on cotton, this line is for you.
We have such a following for David Cline's made in the US, lightweight rayon blend blouses and v-necks in fabulous spring colours. They've been in for a few weeks now, so we don't have the full size range left. Still, if you're a casual dresser, you have to take a look at these fantastic tops.
Now in-stock, Putorti Cotton Sweaters in perfect for spring shades. These made in Canada sweaters are always popular and sell out fast. Washable too.
Libra - made in Canada, always affordable tunics and tanks perfect for regular and petite ladies and this spring's collection even includes a casual maxi dress.

Many more casual tops in-store from more lines. Come shop!
fdjjagSpring Denim & Bottoms from JAG and FDJ
We have our complete line of JAG Jeans in for the season including ankle jeans in camel and denim; bermudas in white and taupe; and crops in black, taupe and white. Women enjoy JAG for their mid-rise and they've been a very popular brand in our store for over 6 years.

We have a wonderful selection of French Dressing Jeans denim, jeggings, capris and bermuda shorts in regular and petite sizes and a variety of colours. We love the great spring fabrics from FDJ including their very popular silk touch fabric. Beige or sandshell is the colour that sells out early every year, so come in early.

We also have many great tops from FDJ to match their turquoise, aqua and lipstick jeans, plus we carry 2 styles of denim jackets that complete the look.

styleStyle & Fit Tips: Wearing Capris, Crops and Bermudas
Joseph Ribkoff
We have a full selection of capris, crops and bermuda shorts now, so we wanted to share some fit tips and tricks for getting the best style for your body type.

Capri pants fall from anywhere below the calf to above the ankle and tend to be a slimmer fit. Bermudas are a type of short with the hem landing just above or below the knee.

Proportion Petites
All through spring and summer our women, especially our petite ladies, come into the store with the thought that they are too short to wear capris. Taller, larger ladies also have concerns with choosing the right cut for them. We want you to set these concerns aside and come play with us. KC's Boutique brings in so many flattering styles; there is one for you!
The most flattering cropped hem cut has a tapered shape and straight leg. Jacqueline Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn may come to mind as you consider this pant.

If you are playing it safe, choose a skinny, slim or tapered (not wide, nor super tapered) leg that ends above the thinnest part of the ankles. Pair the capri with a heel if you are looking to slim down your ankles and calves and to make yourself look taller.
If you are wearing flat shoes, try a more pointed shoe style that will give you a bit more height. This trick is helpful for petite ladies as well.
If you have more muscular legs or/and thick calves, never end the hemline at the widest part of your leg.
Frank Lyman
If you are heavier and feel that a tapered capri makes your hip and thighs look bigger, try to balance it with a straight leg as opposed to tapered cut.
Right now at KC's, we have JAG Crops with a tapered leg, roll-up cuff in taupe and white for that boyfriend casual look.
FDJ offers their pedal pusher capris - a shorter style of capri in tangerine, aqua, turquoise, red and even polkadot.
If you are looking for Bermudas or walking shorts, we have all colours and lengths to suit petite and regular ladies sizes 0-16.
Come in and experiment! Bring in a few pairs of shoes, take advantage of our large, private change rooms and remember to embrace the body you are in now!
