In Fashion – talking with Karen Morgan


Seaside talks with Karen Morgan, Executive Director, Saanich Peninsula Hospital, about what’s In Fashion …

In your closet? Sympli skirts, Jacob Ribkoff jackets and anything Eileen Fisher. Though comfortable, these brands get me compliments every wearing.

In your makeup bag?
Pixi lip and cheek colour and Clinique chubby eye shadow pencil.

In your bathroom cabinet?
Epsom salts and bath bombs for a spa experience!

On your bedside table?
“The Age of Voter Rage” by pollster Nik Nanos. I’m a political junkie.

On your playlist? Michael Kaeshammer’s live albums. And of course, the font of all musical wisdom, the Beatles. In the kitchen? Ground flax seed. Boring, but important for heart and digestive health!

When you want a night out?
My favourite places are Bistro Suisse and Haro’s, but it’s even better when my husband Tim cooks for me. He’s a talented amateur chef.

On your feet?
FLY London shoes. I wore my super comfortable Flys all over Liverpool when Tim took me on a “Beatles tour.”

Adding sparkle to your outfit?
My diamond studs. I’ve worn diamond studs (with one small upgrade!) since my late 20s. On your luxury wish list? It’s an unorthodox wish, but a visit with the mountain gorillas in Africa.

In home décor?
I started buying pine antique furniture when I was young, and they remain my favourite pieces.

When it comes to your go-to “uniform?”
A classic skirt, top and jacket (usually Eileen Fisher).

On your skin?
Homemade coconut oil soap and lovely organic Eminence moisturizers from
Haven Spa.

When you want to smell irresistible?
Jo Malone Vanilla and Anise cologne.

For a night of binge watching?
Big Little Lies, Grace and Frankie.

When you need more than a clutch?
I always need more than a clutch and have a great bag from Flush that holds my iPad, lip balm, phone, first aid supplies, glasses, a water bottle …

When you want to throw fashion out the window and be all about comfort?
My cosy sweatshirt from Mark’s in Sidney and soft wool leggings.

When you don’t care how much it costs?
John Fluevog shoes or boots (funky and beautifully made!).

On your walls?
We have eclectic taste in art. The key is it must have a story attached; either
about the piece, the artist or where we found it.



Your West Coast Culture. A magazine about the people and places that make the Saanich Peninsula the little piece of paradise we call home.
