Vancouver Fashion Jobs – Holiday Gift Guide: Jewellery Lover

Wednesday, December 12th, 2012

‘Tis the season for all that glitters and is gold. And who could possibly resist a sparkly something under the tree or in the stocking?! A selection of fashionable gems is in order for all levels of indulgence.  Statement necklaces are always a win. Think big, chunky and glittery. This also includes necklace collars, which are the latest in costume jewellery trends. A little something on the hands is nice too and I personally can’t think of a better combo then the Auriele Bidermann cuff and the iconic YSL arty ring. You will be guaranteed to have the most glamourous hands in town. Last but not least, perhaps it’s a special Christmas for you. If it is, you might want to check out the beautiful Anne Sportun collection, which offers a dream assortment for any jewellery collector with a luxe eye.

Toronto Fashion Jobs – Gold Rush By Day

Tuesday, January 10th, 2012

There’s never a shortage of glimmer and glitz during the holidays, but the rest of the year can look a little bleak sartorially speaking. If there’s one new piece of style advice we should add to our closets in 2012 it’s that big and small doses of gold transcend the season and the time of day. When paired with austere hues like army green, khaki or denim, a shoe, skirt or accessory piece in a golden shade will add brilliance and interest. Try the new addition to your typical brunch uniform or office outfit and you’ll be golden- literally.

1. Metallic Pleated Midi Skirt, US $72 at Topshop
2. Jimmy Choo Wilma Glitter-Coated Leather Oxfords $587 at Saks.com

3. Sequin Collar $47 ASOS.com

4. Roller Buckle Belt US $48 at MichaelKors.com

5. Quo by ORLY Nail Lacquer in Filthy Rich $10 at Shoppers Drug Mart

6. ADAM Metallic Tweed Coat $445 at Shopbop.com
