Hello lovelies and welcome back to KV blog.
How has your week been?
I finally sent the kids back to school and I just love ‘the face’ of September!
It’s my thanks giving and birth month. My birthday celebrations started from the first of this month. I have been indulging a little bit and paying the price at LA fitness people.


Talking about gifts flying from across the Atlantic, I can’t be thankful enough for my loved ones and their caring. I am so looking forward to finishing up my birthday celebration next month in a much warmer climate, just to give myself a little respite from the fall weather that’s already creeping in over here in Canada.


Well, moving on to the most exciting topic……..The Look.


I chose this amazing long sleeve black dress, that’s been hanging in my closet for a while still with tags on. As a fashion blogger, it’s easy to lose track of stuff in your closet at times. Lots of clothes come in from all over and you simply have to keep on top of the show. So here we go with this cute number.
This is my ‘little black dress’ albeit non conventional, but every woman has a favorite little black dress. Here’s how I styled this one…….I picked up these pink and silver hair clips from a liquidation store for $5 but really was not sure what to do with it, so I decided to add some color to this outfit and make it stand out a bit more. I used the hair clips on my hair but did you notice that I switched them over to double as faux buttons?
The collar on this number is a conversation piece, people.  It is adorned with these exquisite silver appliques with the formal look black neck tie laced with pink, conveying a very demure and graceful look. The top of the outfit is fitted but the rest falls somewhat loose and stops just short of the knee.


The strappy pink n’ silver platform sandals are Erdem by Nicholas Kirkwood and are so ooh la la! They are simply glamorous and take the outfit up to a different level to achieve the look that set my pocket book back a hefty sum! They are also a super comfy fit. I love Erdem shoes because they are very comfortable while exuding serious high fashion and drama; attributes you don’t necessarily find together in shoes! I could walk a mile in those any day!  


To further enhance the accessories, I added the silver clutch purse and printed my initials ‘KV’ in pink on the sleeve cuffs. What a bomb!



An absolutely delectable and gorgeous 
‘Happy Birthday from me to you with love ………..KV!!

  6. Happy Birthday Beautiful. I pray for more Grace and Favour from God and May You continue to excel in what ever you do.
    OK I love the Black dress and how your creative instinct to glam it up. The heels are to die for and you can just tell how comfortable they are. Beautiful as always and keep up the good work.
