Hello my Darlings, this has been an amazing week I must say. I am still trying to finish up my Christmas decoration so that I can relax and get in the mood for Christmas. When it comes to Christmas decor, I am a little laid back, because once I put it up, the next thing it signals for me is shopping time. But you know what? I am not sure I really want to do much shopping this year.  I didn't shop a lot  yesterday BLACK FRIDAY too. I didn't want to get into all that craziness this year. I only bought a few things for the boys. I vowed not to go over board with shopping this holiday season and I will definitely stick to that...

I am still tuned into the fall season, but winter is round the corner and I am really not a big fan of the cold weather but still try to make the best of it. Fall fashion makes it better. The orange and yellow leaves dropping off the tress,  as though taking  some time out from the sun and their life long, never ending task  of procreation and photosynthesis is priceless. The beautiful rust and red  colors whisper ever so softy of the season going by and the promise of the one to come. Boy oh boy, winter is around the corner.


This week gone by, I was able to brave taking off my jacket during my photo shoot. The weather was very generous and I can't believe I was able to do that. Probably the last time I'll do that before good ol' winter reigns is all in!

It was sort of an all black affair for this post save for the gray jacket and the burberry's scarf. Black is always the seasons safe color and folks can't go wrong wearing black. 
I really love how I can use this outfit as a dress as well as a skirt.........I am sure you have done it before with some of your outfits. If not give it a try. The dress is just about the correct mid calf length for the  season. I am showing my legs a bit but I have these ankle boots to keep my feet warm.  

I have a special thing for mirror lens sunglasses because they just look so ooh la la! You can see I am wearing a lot of black so the sunglasses break the monotony and lend some excitement and color to the look. There's absolutely no doubt about the authenticity of the look you're seeing right now. Hahaha!

Did you notice my belt. It really compliments my waistline and creates a sleek look without too much of a fuss because my stomach is quiet flat! Something to keep on mind is that this style of belt won't do much for you without some natural sleekness to your waistline.

I love my burberry's so I tied that knot round my neck with the scarf  just to remind myself that burberry's is still the king of winter fashion. You must have a couple of these scarfs to truly get into winter fashion. 

As always, your interest in this blog makes my world go round. Thanks for stopping by. 

Thank you for your time.

Hello lovelies and welcome back to Kartia Vs Blog.

How are you all doing? Kicked off falls season yet?  It is a big no for me. I am still in my summer mood. few week back was a special honour for me by some friends of mine in the fashion industry. I was invited as a special guest to the ‘Aluminum Fall Fashion Show’ hosted by Crawl Cocktail, a Toronto Social Club. Check out the pictures on my blog. (here) Those outfits can be transformed into everyday pieces with fabrics of your choice. Talk about networking and making some pretty decent connections in the fashion world. I met some Toronto trends setters and fashion gurus and it was unbelievably heady stuff! The fashion show was all about originality, class and style all rolled into one.

I came face to face with Canadian designers whose clothes I had been wearing for years without even knowing them. Hahaha. It was so much fun and KV was gushing over these designers. Seriously, I was impressed. It was such an honour and privilege to meet these movers and shakers in our world of fashion and commend them for their talent. 

My Style Corner:
So glad to be sharing another set of pictures that I shoot while I was away on my vacation a few weeks ago. This was one of the shoots I did indoors because it rained ‘cats and dogs’ all the time I was in Nigeria.

I picked this understated teal green top but it doesn’t really show off my figure to perfection like my usual outfits but I like it nevertheless because it makes me look regal, comfortable and warm. If you are a diva you need to have the confidence to carry off numbers like this one because when people see it on you it suddenly becomes high fashion and trendsetting and that’s a hit for you. But please be sure to go heavy on your accessories and wear things that are trendy to spice it up and take it a few notches higher! If your outfit doesn’t make too much of a wow statement for you, that doesn’t mean it’s a cast off. Nothing is ever a lost cause in my world. Re-invent and think outside the box! What you do is spice it up big time with all kinds of interesting accessories.

Take a look at my sandals for one. Very snazzy,  pretty, bright and sparkly. Be sure not to forget your amazing pedicure and the latest shade of nail polish.

I gave you a close-up shot of my face so you see my make-up. Perfect, bold, colorful and eye catching eye shadow. Grooming will go a long way in ‘lending a hand’ to this outfit. Hahaha

Well asymmetrical is in, but I love the lace details of the blouse. As I said, I went heavy on bracelets, watch, rings, wrist jewels and finger cuffs. What do you think of those finger cuffs? You like? They are trending in the fashion world right now.

My pants are silk and two layered in a very easy to wear color - charcoal grey. These pants are quite under stated too and can go with virtually any top I can pull off the hangers. The silk material is flowy and a little clingy and the perfect match for the teal green top.

I am Kartia Velino the and I can make any outfit work for you. Have fun with this one.
