I’m sure it’s pretty obvious by now that I have a major weakness for sparkly jewels. So you can probably imagine how excited I was attending the Swarovski Spring/Summer 2014 preview last week. With so many gorgeous jewels surrounding me, I was on sparkle overload, but in a good way. I was oohing and aahing in every breath and step. So . . . much . . . sparkle!
The upcoming collection, available in the next few weeks, centers around two concepts, “tribal glam” and “monochrome blue”. As you can see from the pictures below, the collection is full of earthy tones and brilliant primary colors.
My two favorite pieces from the preview were the gorgeous crystal cuff (pictured above) with bright shades of blue, red and yellow, and the stunning wood and crystal necklace (2nd to last photo) which showcases how a tribal theme can still feel ultra-feminine. I hope you enjoy drooling over these photos as much as I did!
This last photo is a fun shot of me walking the red carpet for the very first time! I’m wearing a Swarovski purple stunner.
This is the outfit I wish I was wearing today. When it comes to dressing for the cold weather here in Toronto, you would think that I would have it down pat by now. Far from it. With the freezing cold temps we’ve been experiencing, and are going to continue to experience for at least a few more weeks, there are several items that I wish I had purchased at the beginning of the winter season.
Prime example is a super warm Canada Goose coat. Hard to find this time of year because all of those prepared people out there already purchased the entire stock, Canada Goose coats are the ultimate when it comes to warmth and style. Another of those super-warm, super-stylish pieces? Sorel boots. Nowhere to be found in my size, but so wishing I had these on my feet.
–SHOP THE LOOK–
Words can’t express how much I love blogging. I can’t imagine my life without it, and I never could have imagined the lovely people that I would meet, the awesome opportunities that would come my way, and the wonderful experiences I would have.
One such “wonderful experience” happened a couple of weeks ago when eLuxe, Canada’s online source for designer fashion, asked 9 Toronto bloggers to style and model for their 2014 Spring Lookbook. Shockingly, yours truly was included! The experience was both thrilling and terrifying. I’ve never modeled for a professional photographer before, so I’m looking a little stiff and nervous in my photo, but the entire experience was so amazing, and the people I had the opportunity to work with were just stellar.
Here are a few behind the scenes photos from the shoot, and be sure to check out the entire eLuxe Spring 2014 Lookbook.
For my outfit, I chose this sweet yet elegant Rebecca Taylor dress, paired with this white ELA leather clutch. I added my own sparkly jewels and pink pumps to complete this feminine look that felt totally my style.
Our photographer, Vincent Lions, was just amazing. He made me feel as comfortable as I possibly could in front of the camera, and made the experience slightly less terrifying.
A major bonus was that I got to experience this fabulous day with my girl Gaby (from The Vault Files) who was also selected to style and model for the lookbook. Doesn’t she look just gorgeous! Thank you to Gaby for the behind-the-scenes photos of me and the pretty Aveda make-up shots.
A huge thank you goes out to eLuxe for including little ole’ me with such an amazing group of women, for making me look “pretty” for my photo, and for providing me with an experience of a life-time.
