Silpada Feature & a Giveaway

Silpada is known for its high quality, hand crafted sterling silver jewelry.  Another great thing about Silpada is ALL items from all collections hold a lifetime guarantee. 

A year ago they launched their K & R line of fashion jewellery, and both collections compliment one another.  I am a gold toned jewelry lover so when they came out with this collection I was thrilled.   But even more exciting is the launch of their accessories line.  This collection just launched this fall and if you are like me, you will have a hard time deciding which is your favorite!  A huge thank you to my Silpada Rep Tracey for letting me have a look at all these beautiful items! 


Army green is a great colour for fall, and looks amazing when paired with animal print in the Timeless Tortoise Watch and Zahara Clutch. 






Isn’t this Dakota handbag just the best!  I love the fringe detail and the leather is so buttery soft!  This is definitely on my wish list!

Scarves are so versatile and an essential accessory for fall.  Here are just 2 ways to wear these Silpada beauties!

I love tying the Olivia Scarf so the beautiful orange tones shine through. 

With the many ways to wear scarves, why not tie your scarf so you can wear it like a vest.  The Sloan scarf is perfect for this and wearing it as a vest is a great way to transition your wardrobe into fall (and get extra wear out of your wardrobe). 


Now for the exciting giveaway….

DSW Moncton Opening Event







What girl doesn't love sparkle?  And they certainly had a huge selection of shoes with bling!

It was so hard not to want to buy everything!



I love the mixture of textures in these boots!




My love for shoes goes back many years.  It is a love I share with my sisters and my mom; my 3 year old daughter has our inherited our love of shoes gene too.  So when I heard that DSW was coming to Moncton I was over the moon!  I had been an admirer of the shoes on their website for years.  And when I was invited to their VIP event I was ecstatic! 

The event exceeded my expectations with a candy bar, amazing food, drinks and a $25 gift card!  My 2 hour shopping experience was pure bliss and I kept going up and down the aisles multiple times.  I am sure I saw different things each time I went up and down the rows.  In the end I ended up with a gorgeous pair of coach flats (the ones I am trying on above) and a pair of Naturalizer boots for fall.

If you have never been to a DSW location you NEED to go there!  Not only do they have fabulous prices on their shoes, and a wide variety of styles; but they also carry beautiful purses and jewelry as well.  I can't wait to go back!  Anyone want to go shoe shopping?

An Event You NEED to Attend!


Who here loves to shop?  (Ok, so I do maybe just a little.)  Who loves to shop and get a good deal? 

If you answered yes to either of those questions then this event is for you!  On Sunday, August 23 from 2 to 4pm come and shop the closets of the ladies of Saint John!  The cost to attend the event as a buyer and/or seller is $5 and tickets can be purchased here.  This is an end of summer/fall sale so this is a great time to pick up new pieces for the upcoming season.  Also, if you aren't already a member of Shop Our Closets Saint John on Facebook, this is a great time to join!  Not only will you be able to pick up some amazing pieces to wear at a fraction of the cost, but you will be able to stay up to date with awesome events like this one!  

I'll be there selling some of my clothes and shopping too!  What are you hoping to pick up during this awesome afternoon of shopping?  Let me know in the comments what you are searching for and if I will see you there!  Happy shopping!
