THANK YOU for another successful fundraiser! 

We raised $6,713 for Nanaimo Community Hospice at our spring fashion show and high tea event on April 26th at the Nanaimo Curling Club. The sold-out event attracted 200 attendees. With your help, we've raised over $15,000 for the Hospice in the last 3 years!

Renovations & Grand Reopening this June

Please note we will be closed from June 7th to 11th for renovations. We are excited to update our look and we will be hosting a Grand Re-opening on Saturday, June 13th! Stay tuned for more details.

Made in Canada Fashions
Did you know that we carry over 10 designer labels that make their products in Canada? Our customers have been coming into the Boutique after their vacations and telling us they spotted Joseph Ribkoff, Frank Lyman, Libra, Parkhurst and Putorti on their travels. Guess what? It's much more affordable to purchase these lines in Canada, so it's a win-win for you and local businesses like KC's!
Wardrobe Must Have: Maxi Skirts and Dresses 
Conrad C

Maxi Dresses are a wardrobe staple this season. Most of our designers have put maxi skirts and dresses in their spring/summer collections. The feeling of wearing a maxi is luxurious, sophisticated, comfortable and fun! 

These dresses are easy to dress up with heels and jewellery or dress down with a denim jacket and flip flops! Many of our ladies can't wear high heels or don't want to show their legs so the maxi length works well if you are attending a wedding or special event this summer.

Our collection of maxis is in-stock now, but selling out quickly so be sure to try one on while the size selection is still good.

French Dressing Summer Tops and Blouses
A new collection of FDJ tops has arrived! Beautiful bright colours and amazing prints that look great paired with a pair of FDJ jeans, capris or Bermuda shorts. Come in to check them out!
Eugenia 100% Cotton Tops
We have brought in another grouping of Eugenia tops and jackets which are 100% Cotton, made in Canada and wash like a dream! There are sleeveless tanks, matching jackets, short sleeve and 3/4 sleeve styles available.

Casual Dresses from Cativa

We love these casual dresses perfect for the office or even an outdoor wedding! Easy to dress up and down.

Style Tip: Horizontal Stripes

We've been telling you for years that horizontal stripes DO NOT make you look bigger and now there is finally proof that wearing horizontal stripes can actually make you look thinner!


"Vertical stripes were always thought to make the wearer look taller and thinner. Now, a study by York University has dismissed all this as an old wives' tale. Researchers showed volunteers drawings of same-sized women in both horizontal and vertical-striped dresses and asked who looked larger. In each case, the woman wearing stripes across the body was judged to be smaller."

A "hip hug" for Mother's Day - Flatter Me Belts make great gifts! Washable, fits any size and totally stylish.

Remember we are open on Sundays 11:00 am to 4:00 pm.
