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!

Leggings Aile, noir, XS -XL, $ 97.00

Wing leggings, black XS-XL, $97.-

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!

Robe Sexy Petal, bleu raye, XS – XL, $126.00

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

Surprisingly versatile, I have been getting a lot of wear from my banana yellow skinny jeans.  Also available in pink (so cute!) and turquoise (I admit, I got the turquoise ones too) and seafoam (want!)

Combine them with the “Romantic” blouse for the look I am wearing above.  Romantic blouse comes in various prints:  red paisley, hummingbirds (above), feather mandala, oversize floral, and indigo shibori.

This wrap top is one of Melow’s every-season classics.  It is so feminine, and yet there are no-frills and no flowers.  It is great on all body types and covers nicely at the bust without gaping open.  Discreet on a larger bust, perfect over the tummy, and both corporate or casual.  Really, why not get two!

This cover up twist bolero is a new favourite of mine.  Going to the beach or the pool?  Perfect to keep the sun of your skin.  Do you have narrow shoulders, or a small bust?  Perfect for your body type!  Do you like to hide a little, but still look fashionable?  Perfect.  Wear it over a dress, a tank top or pin it closed at the bottom and wear it as a top.  Come and try one on!  The cotton is sheer, delicate and slubbed.

I call it the Samurai pant, and it is one of our best sellers every year.  Yes, we have them in black as well, but how nice is a white pant in the summer on a blazing hot day?  It is elegant and contemporary in cut.  Must be worn with nude undies in the white because it is slightly (very slightly) transparent on the sides.  If you are heading South this Spring, or going on a cruise, these are a travellers delight.  Cropped to keep the hem clean, they are the best white pant ever!

Here I am proudly modelling my new banana yellow jeans by Hudson.

They make me happy now eventhough I know I am pushing it with the weather.  It is still a bit early to be sporting pastel bottoms (but they are so comfortable and stretchy!!!)

They are by Hudson jeans and they also come in aqua, turquoise and pink.

 I made my mother try them on because she kept telling me “they are only for young people”, and “I will look ridiculous in such tight pants”.  I gave her one size larger than I would put on someone who wants them sexy.  They made her look great! (and now she can’t decide which colour she wants).  I am pretty sure she will opt for the aqua.  Once she had them on, she was pleasantly surprised by how well they fit and how comfortable they were at the waist.  You see, this is not a low rise fashion pant.  These are high rise premium denim jeans…they just happen to be available in great colours.  You will be seeing a lot of colourful pants in stores this Spring.  Take the plunge and try them on!  Just go for it!

Ahhhhh.

Ivko Spring 2013 is in.  I took these pictures as I was unpacking the box in the studio last week, drooling over every piece.

This is a beautiful drape front panel cardigan that can be left to hang down, or tucked up to create a shawl collar.  It comes in two colours: green and black.

 I think it is simply divine.

 

Here is the black one.  It comes in sizes S-XXL and is made from 100% fine spun cotton.

Feathers are always very glamorous and they have been appearing in earrings for quite some time now.

I love feather jewelry because it allows you to make a big statement, add a touch of colour and feel glam all at the same time.  Feathers have a history of being worn in hats, headdresses and then there is always the feather boa.  But I want to tell you how to wear feathers in the day to day.  Why?  Because feathers allows you to make a statement without doing very much else to your  wardrobe.  They can be added to a dress or a t-shirt.

Here are a few tips when purchasing feather jewelry:

1.  There is such a thing a too much:  Unless it is for a gala event, don’t wear a fully plumed garment.

2. Be aware of how tribal feathers can look.  I love tribal fashion and all things that make you feel like a powerful woman goddess.  That being said, long feather earrings to your waist should be saved for very special ceremonial type occasions.

3. Cheap feathers will always look like they came from the dollar store.  You know the ones i mean… they come in bright colours and often have black dots.  Don’t buy them.  Don’t wear them.

4.  Be ethical in your feather consumption.  Exotic birds are killed for feathers.  Purchase feather jewelry from artists that use naturally fallen feathers, vintage feathers and rooster feathers.

5.  Take good care of your feather jewelry.  It is fragile, should not get wet, is hard to clean and can be easily lost.  Feather earrings have a tendency to fly away without you even noticing.

6. Try something other than feather earrings.  Feather earrings are a bit over done in fashion right now.  Try something a bit different:  necklaces, cuffs, belts.

  This necklace presents a new take of the feather ornament.  Green is one of those colours that a lot of women feel they cannot wear (I don’t agree by the way, there are a lot of greens out there…. and there is a green for every one of you.)

It softens the framing of the face.  That means it is great combined with glasses, geometric haircuts, straight hair, up-dos and tailored clothing.

The necklace above is by Samsara Concept.  We have them at the boutique in blue, emerald and black.

1-It come in 4 sizes (S-M-L-XL) and looks good on everyone!

2-It is made in Montreal by local lingerie designer Arianne.  Less transport= ecological.

3-The fabric is so so very soft and feels deliscious.

4-It is reversible.  YAY!  Two camis for the price of one = economical.

5-Versatile: you can wear it straight from work to a party.

And lastly:   You just feel sexy wearing it.

Available at the Boutique for $46.50 each
