Happy Halloween dear friends and witches!

 I can’t believe I have never been Frida before!  It took me 15min to get dressed like this in the morning.  My wardrobe is fully equipped to dress 10 Frida’s and my jewelry collection suits her just fine.

 Oh, how I wish she were still alive and I could invite her to my store.  I would love to have dressed Frida for real.

In this outfit I feel beautiful and powerful and feminine.  An amazing trio of emotions to feel when you look in the mirror.  Thank you Frida for everything you created and stood for.

 I love this fabric so much.  I call it the feather mandala.  I feel like it has magical powers.

Below are two of my current styles that were cut in this material, a dress and a top.  The dress is called the star dress and has the fantastic feature of being very flattering while gently hiding the tummy.  The top is called the ballerina top.  It is a great cleavage top and also great for breast-feeding, so send all your nursing friends to me for fashionable maternity wear.

These are so hard to portray in a picture like this.  They are much funkier on a body with a cute bootie showing under the cuff.  They are based on my wing pants that have been a huge success.  High waisted and made from Canadian rayon, these are sure to last a long time and are guaranteed not to pill!

This dress is inspired by the lines of 1920 flapper dresses (without being so boxy and shapeless).  They often had deep V patterns on the front, slicing across the bust all the way down to the stomach.  I, of course, did my own embellished version in my all time favorite color combo red and purple.  The stripe on this dress is especially interesting because it is rare to find black and blue together.  Casual, but with a touch of whimsey, this dress has been appealing to women of all ages and sizes.  Today I sold one to a 65 year old very funky lady!

Add this one to your pile of beloved Ivko sweaters just because you can.

It is so very affordable!  $190 in brown, blue or black.

The collar folds up or opens like a blazer with beautiful enamel buttons on one side.  A small jewel detail with decorative chain can be easily removed if it is not your thing.  Made form 100% wool, this sweater is warm, joyful and practical.

 

The blue sweater below with orange details is both casual and bright.  Pair it with jeans or rust colored cords and you have Fall in your back pocket!

Below is the black combo, the classiest in my opinion.  I have two matching skirts that it can be worn with, one mini and one knee-length.  It makes a nice little business suit when matched together.

$190 (I know, can you believe it??? An Ivko sweater for only $190!!!)  sizes: 36-44

Where are you going?  Ivko is in the store now!  And also available online at http://store.katrinleblond.com/

This is my number 1 pick for Fall 2013 IVKO.  It is casual, elegant and the wool is so thin and soft, it’s like magic warmth on your skin!

The button is carved and adds a beautiful touch.  No broach necessary!

The back has a center panel of  jacquard patterns that turn into a reverse-box pleat.

There is a small row of beautiful enamel buttons that go all the way down the front opening.

$270, sizes 36-44
