Just a quick blog this time, and not about my weekend but rather something that is happening in my working life. This Wednesday, 6 March, will see the start of something I hope to make a habit of, and I hope you will too! 10am will see the start of the first 'Morning Style with Kathy' show.
This will be QVC fashion but with a bit of a difference. I'd like to help you put together outfits from across the huge number and variety of designer brands and ranges that we have here, and find the best way to dress for your size, shape, age and lifestyle.
It will be a show where I meet fashion stylists and journalists to hear about trends and styles, and how to interpret them in ways that are wearable for each of us. We would also like you to get involved with your thoughts, queries and fashion worries. I'll tell you how on Wednesday.
The first show will see the launch of a brand new range of dresses designed by journalist and broadcaster Eve Pollard. She got fed up with finding such little choice to suit her as she progressed in years, so she decided to do something about it! Her dresses have sleeves, are long enough to hide your knees and have flattering rather than revealing necklines. They are cut in such a way and made in fabrics to disguise the few extra pounds that many of us now have around our bottoms or middles! I think you might like them, especially if you have an occasion or celebration coming up – looking good as well as feeling confident and comfortable can make all the difference to a special day.
And there will be lots more besides.
Last Friday we made a promo video for the show that you may spot being played out on QVC. You will see me wearing outfits suitable different situations – I'm in a meeting, in the studio and backstage looking at some of the clothes that our stylist Charlotte has chosen for the first show. (She also picked all my ensembles for the promo, and I think she chose well! I will try to put the details of every piece up in a blog for you, as everything I'm wearing is available from QVC.)
Also in the promo, away from work, I enjoyed a glass of wine with Ali Keenan at a pub that sits ten minutes from where each of us live, now that Ali has moved so much closer to me. It was freezing and there were flakes of snow falling but we had to shiver outside because it was too dark in the cosy warmth inside. I would have preferred a hot chocolate!
Barney the dog makes a brief appearance as well, while I'm walking with him in the woods, because the message to you is that whatever your lifestyle, whoever you are and however you like to spend your time, we believe that QVC fashion has something for you. And Morning Style with Kathy intends to help you discover how to make QVC fashion work for you.
Hope to see you there!
