Would you like to see the clothing on someone who you can really relate too or do you prefer seeing the clothes showcased in the most attractive and professional way possible? Do you prefer to see plus-size models? Inquiring minds want to know!

Barb’s Fall Diane Kennedy Wardrobe

It’s that time of year!

My wardrobe needed a bit of sprucing up so I chose some new Diane Kennedy pieces to call my own. I took my time to pick what I would get the most wear out of, fit into my existing wardrobe and match my personal hat collection.

Justify Jacket

Barb chooses the Justify jacket in Heather Lake for her Fall wardrobe

I love this Justify jacket! I love the weight of it, the cut and especially the colour. Heather Lake Twill is the perfect shade of blue for me. This jacket can easily be worn for a dressier occasion or alternatively with jeans. It’s so soft and comfortable yet has a great shape that doesn’t make me look boxy. I’ve teamed it up here with the Midnight Cowl in the same shade of blue. This super flattering neckline works so well with the matching jacket. I’m 5’4″ so I chose the Petite Serene Pant in black. The wide legged pants give an interesting silhouette to this outfit that I love. Fluevog Boots.

I couldn’t help but add this super cute Erstwilder brooch to the jacket to give it a little holiday feel. This one is called Season’s Greetings and depicts the perfect winter scene in a mini snowglobe. So festive!

Love how this cute Snow Globe brooch completes the outfit

Strength Tunic

Steel and Black stripes enhance this tunics flattering lines. It’s nice to get away from too much black at this time of year so I went with the Strength, Steel and Black striped tunic. I paired it up with a pair of Steel grey Balance Pants. I like a skinny pant and the zippers at the ankles on these trousers look so cool unzipped and worn with interesting boots or shoes. These will be going into heavy rotation this winter. The perfect addition to my wardrobe. Fluevog Boots.

Verve Zip

This Verve jacket is amazing! It’s the perfect weight for layering and has so many interesting details from it’s asymmetric design, shawl collar and antique silver tone zipper hardware. The fit is sublime and the length is brilliant. I can wear this as a jacket or a tunic with a pair of leggings when it’s zipped up. I’ve paired this jacket with the Strength Tunic again but this time I went for the Black and Cream Stripe. I just adore the graphic look of these bold stripes. I’m also wearing the Balance Pant in Black and I’ve left the ankle zippers closed to create a skinny legging look. Erstwilder Brooch. Fluevog Shoes.

All in all I’m really happy with the choices I made. Being dressed in head to toe luxurious Bamboo is like a warm, soft hug. Who doesn’t need one of those??

Reversible Form and Function

Reversible??

We can dream about clothing that’s so practical that it serves more than one function.  Think about that for a moment.  Is it bad that the first thing that comes to mind for me is being able to reverse my top if I spill something on it? Or maybe I left the house feeling one way and and later my mood has changed. I might like my outfit to reflect that.

Perfect For Travel

How perfect for a weekend away that you can get more looks out of fewer things! Having reversible clothing is the best way we know to double your outfit potential while travelling. We must also mention here that these pieces are wonderfully soft and comfortable allowing you to travel in true comfort.

The Reversible Cowl, Pant and Vest are three core pieces that can be worn separately or together:

 

1. Our Classic Cowl tunic, re-imagined in this soft and fabulous Canadian-made fabric we call Blur. This style is fully reversible with one side being black with light grey striations and the other side being mid heather grey. Yoga-style “flatlock” stitching makes this possible (it’s a style of stitching that looks virtually the same on both sides)  Full length sleeves and a comfy-cowl neckline make this DK piece one of our most versatile must-haves.

Reversible Form and Function; from 3 core Diane Kennedy pieces

2.  Our Reversible Vest  features unique seaming details including an angled princess seam, a back yoke and center back seam provide a perfect fit. Smooth yoga pant-style “Flatlock” stitching throughout.

Reversible Form and Function; from 3 core Diane Kennedy pieces

3. Our Reversible Pant is a slim pant similar to a legging, as it has a narrow fit. Smooth yoga pant-style “Flatlock” stitching throughout.

Versatility is really the key word here. Being able to wear one piece of clothing two different ways not only gives you more bang for the buck, it also allows you to easily change your look. Plus they’re all on sale, 25% off right now here

For your ever changing moods.

Diane’s Picks of Fall 2017 Tunics

Diane picks her favourite tunics for Fall 2017Every new season I can’t help but choose my favourites, whether it’s new colours or tunics.  I’ve been especially anticipating some beautiful new heather bamboo in green and blue. Heather Forest is a deep mossy green marbled with black and Heather Lake is a soft slatey dark blue with just a touch of cream. Here’s my pick’s of the Fall 2017 tunics.

The Renew Wrap Tunic

Diane picks her favourite tunics for Fall 2017

My top pick this year is a mock wrap tunic with a mock wrap belt called the Renew Wrap. We all love V necks and wraps are universally flattering and lovely. But they can be fussy to fit and sit right on the body. Hence the mock feature, all of the look but none of the fuss. Same goes for a tie belt. This tunic has all the great advantages of these features with absolutely no fuss, you just slip it over your head and its ready to go. It’s a really flattering shape (gives you a waist even if you don’t have one!) and in this fabulous Forest green colour, it’s my top pic for sure.

 

The Vision Tunic in Black & Steel

Diane picks her favourite tunics for Fall 2017

My fav tunic of all time is the Playful tunic partly because of the V neck, extra room around my tummy and 2 handy pockets. But it’s time for a new fav, The Vision Tunic is the ticket. The same functional features that have always made it work for me but also added stripes, colour blocking and seam details to change up the look.

 

Mixed Media Tunic in Heather Lake (coming soon)

Diane picks her favourite tunics for Fall 2017

Not too far off is a brand new style I’ve called Mixed Media Tunic. It combines sold black bamboo with the Heather lake shade and also Heather Lake blue in a beautiful herringbone jacquard. I can’t wait for this tunic in this colour, it’s lovely and quite unique. With vertical seam lines, an asymmetrical hem, handy pocket, V neck…it’s got all the hallmarks of becoming one of my favourite tunics. Can wait!

Tummy Loving Tunics

Tummy Loving TunicsDo you love your tummy?

Chances are you have mixed feelings about this particular body part. A lot of people carry their weight in the tummy area, that’s just a fact. And while we aren’t going to tell you to break out the crop top and show the world how much you love your belly, we do have some great pieces that will make you look amazing and feel confident that your tummy isn’t the first thing you notice when you look in the mirror. Bring on the Tunic!

Tummy Loving Tunics The Zip Tunic, The Vision Tunic and the Strength Tunic

What makes a tunic so special?

Our tunics are designed to accentuate the curves you love and skim and flow over your tummy area. Viscose from Bamboo fabric is unbelievably soft. It has a silky, smooth feel and luxurious drape that glides over your body. An extra bit of “swing” is factored into the stomach area to create an easy flowing silhouette and added comfort. This additional care is taken in the design of all our tops, not just tunics but jackets and vests, too. And yes, they are all designed to be layered and work together.

Tummy Loving Tunics The Recharge Vest

Invest in a Vest?

Our Recharge Vest is a perfect example of a well thought out design that makes layering so easy. This vest pairs perfectly with tunic and tops of all sleeve lengths. A one button design and a box pleat in the back make for an easy fit and a flattering drape in the midsection. Why not try a vest? It adds so much interest and fun weather worn over a tunic, a tee shirt, or a blouse.

Love It All!

We want to be able to love all of our body parts, even the ones that we are taught to hate. This is one of the steps to living a proud, confident, self-loving life. When we wear clothing that fits just right, accentuate the areas we choose and flatter the areas that challenge us it becomes just a little easier to see the whole picture and be our best selves.

Be kind to yourself!

Love Barb
