Hello my friends. I am so upbeat right now. It's springs, everywhere is heating up. Life is once more bubbling and things are moving.
I have a confession to make but I'm sure some of you must have caught on to me already. Did you notice that last week I merely blogged some pics and this week I am doing the write up? Yes I cheated with the post but please forgive! The culprit is my ‘schedule’ for which I am truly not complaining because I'd rather be busy than idle! Please forgive!

Recall that a couple of months ago, I mentioned how a business arrangement regarding my May 06 Awareness Fashion Show had not worked out? Well, I'm happy to testify that it was favourably resolved without me losing financially with my business contact and hopefully we will work together in the future. But it was really a big lesson.
I also want to sound a note of warning to you all about the volume of internet fraud going on with people setting up websites, facebook pages and creating profiles that are not real. Some even claim to own private jets and so on. Any crook can photo shop even a meeting with God so please be careful. The internet is not a good place to start a relationship business or otherwise. Follow up with something more tangible, set up a face to face meeting and never ever commit financially until you have concrete proof of what is being sold to you. Confidence tricksters are trolling the internet like the devil looking for susceptible men and women to devour, so please be smart and sensible. To be fore warned is to be forearmed my friends and all the best

My Style Conner:
With spring we have new fashion and new colors popping up everywhere and how best to announce this than with my favourite designer on my shoulders! I have always had a love affair with the trademark inner plaid lining and the tan gabardine outer, trademark of Burberrys pioneered 145 years ago first as just a raincoat but now as the epitome of class, style and British aristocracy in all its ramifications. Please don't forget the "s". When you see a Burberrys coat, your first reaction is ‘mmmh, what a well cut coat’ - until with a casual flick of the hand, the plaid lining is revealed by the usually "unassuming" wearer and then you go ‘oh, that explains the perfect fit’.
Everything about this look is expensively casual. The Burberrys T –shirt also set me back a couple but as I said, it's spring so let's look the part people. My black slacks sort of completed the fashion statement with the flair that always comes with well-cut slacks by Zara. I particularly liked the double row of bottoms on this one because it introduced a bit of character into an otherwise just 'plain black' pair of slacks which makes it stand out more in the photo.

I was a little conflicted with the Vince Camuto sandals, not wanting any of the attention to be taken away from the power of Burberrys but in the end I figured that this was just not gonna happen. Not with Burberrys. I think the sandals further enhanced the look by telling its own 'strappy' story. 
This is a look you can take anywhere with you. To the mall, a night out with the girls or the boys, lunch with your friends, a night out with folks, name it you got it right here. It may be a bit too dressy for Friday at work but who knows, if you have a diva image at work you may just swing it. Unfortunately I belong to the scrubs category so no work outfit for me here.

Anyway folks, please enjoy the blog and remember our date on May 06, 2016. See you there.

Stepping out in the appropriate business attire doesn't just look ‘fabulosity’ good but it also gives you a boost of self-confidence to greatly enhance that 'creative evil genius' in you! The professional must always dress the part in accordance with their professional image.
A suit is the best attire for a business meeting. But you can also step outside the box and be a little creative and original. For my business meeting, I decided on this pencil knee length dress with a light sweater for the 'jacket effect'. I also donned a long black crop jacket. This business casual look is so easy to put together and usually achieved by a coordination of classic formal with trendy modern patterns and crop wear pieces.
For this look, women can also wear capris pants, regular well fitted pants or knee length pencil skirts.  On top, tailored shirts and blouses would be apt. Never forget to add a blazer or even a jacket and the same goes for men as well. Pay attention to the cut and fit of your attire and make sure it suits your body shape. When you wear a suit the shoulders must sit square and the trouser should end right before the shoe line.
Men can also wear a combination of pants, sweater and a jacket which is another version of business casual which leaves you looking professional.   For Women  Showing of skin should be minimized - do not show up for a business meeting showing cleavage. That would just not be appropriate!
Women can wear the classic low-heeled black pumps. But I personally look and feel more confident when I take it up a notch in heels. It is not necessary that your shoes be black; you can go for the colour that will compliment and match the rest of your outfit. It is totally accepted in the business world of today to look delectably colourful.
For men polished and gleaming leather shoes are a must. Make sure it matches the colour of the pants but a shade darker will work fine too. 
A second carry-all bag to accommodate all your business documents is a must. And don't forget to switch out your everyday bag for a dainty purse in the evening. A woman with a day purse at a nigh party is a no no!
Of course I killed two birds with one stone and did my photo shoot at the same time as my business meeting. A huge thank you to Worship Media for accommodating my schedule and making this meeting happen. 

Do not forget to grab your tickets for the fashion show (here). The countdown has started


Thank you for stopping by

 But If you're looking for designer clothing at a better rate the best places are online consignment sites, and stores. They sell top of line designer clothing, shoes, jewelry and accessories at reasonable prices. They aren't the lowest prices but nevertheless still good prices for quality clothing, Luxury Handbags, shoes and Accessories , there are a few ones in the city where I live, and I do visit there once in a while, for women who a particular about wearing top of the line brands, I do recommend this. Also there are online stores that carry clothes directly off the run way, but you need to source this out. Women should take caution when they dress their body type. Remember that your looks can take you to places.  

Thank you for your time

Hello my favourite people. Welcome to spring! What does spring say to you? To me Robert HS says about spring - Never cut a tree down in the wintertime. Never make a negative decision in the low time. Never make your most important decisions when you are in your worst moods. Wait.......Be patient. The storm will pass. The spring will come!

Spring officially starts March 20th - the earliest in our lifetime yet - to me it already came a week ago and that was because my kids have been home this entire week for ...... yes you got it....." spring break".

We've all heard this joke about Toronto - and most cities in Canada I imagine, having two seasons: Winter and Construction. That is so true! Winter has come and gone and now we have construction. So I stopped to help some gentlemen at their construction site but they told me I looked too good to be on site and that I should rather take some pictures with their equipment…so I obliged them hence the construction equipment in the background! These men (and women) do such good work keeping out city beautiful. Thank you to them!

My week has been very busy as usual and as it gets closer to May 6th, things are really heating up around here. But you know what makes the entire project easier to handle? I have an awesome project team! I recently "bagged" another great Toronto fashion icon - Antonio Chavez of the Transition soles fame, which is a single pair of shoes/heels that have exchangeable straps allowing the user to customize the appearance of their shoes according to the occasion or style of outfit.  Please go check him out on FACEBOOK. 

Moving on to my favourite corner which is fashion and style.

My Style Conner:
We all know it is spring, the flowers and trees are rejuvenating  from  the harsh winter months and getting back to life. So I decided to "spring forward" my look. This beautiful Nygard long sleeve shirt really felt the most appropriate outfit to make this debut entrance into spring because of the floral detail and guess what? Did you see my neck bow? It is just a hair clip! Hahaha! I just love playing with style, and accessories and what have you! I guess this is what makes me so different. I am very creative with fashion and style. Some piece that goes on my head today may be tomorrow's fashion to go around my neckline. That's how I roll people and that's the "KV Style". 
The crop pant is a rather simple effortless fashion statement on its own. What's trending now is not to over accessorize your clothes or hair, and moving the emphasis towards your purse. This sends a different and unique message with all those accessories. Have a look at my purse ….and the matching black pumps. 

Folks, I am so happy to announce that I will be finally launching my own clothing line….very soon! I have been working on my line for a while and it will be awesomeness when we launch I can assure you. You will be able to "dress the KV look”. Hmmh, look no more for how to mix and match your Old and New cos I am here for you. Just pick up that phone and we can have a good time talking fashion and style figuring out what will work best for you.

Thank you for hanging out with me and much love…KV.
