Top 14 Places in 2014

As I looked at my travel albums from the past year, many memories went through my head. Some cities I had been to before, and others I found beauty in for the first time. Many flights, road trips and moves occurred in the past year. One of the craziest trips was driving from Ontario to Alberta, it took us three days to just cross the Ontario boarder! The drive along Lake Superior was gorgeous, and filled with a variety of wildlife, including a massive black bear that nearly took us out.  
England always fascinates me with old architecture and the variety of accents depending on which city/town you are in. I am ending the year spending time in London and Paris,  and will be starting 2015 off right, in Paris!  The following photos are some of my favourites from 2014. Looking forward to crossing more places off my bucket list next year! 

Bring on the New Year

This fun, flirty, and flattering silhouette is perfect for any New Years celebration. A Skater skirt is a great style that can be mixed with several pieces. With the volume of the skirt, it looks best with a fitted top and a clean lined waist length jacket or long coat.  If you wear plan to wear a glitzy sequinned look for NYE, pair simple accessories that aren't too flashy to balance your look. If you are wearing solid fabrics like this one, pair with an alluring statement piece. Remember to keep the neckline in mind when pairing earrings or a necklace. This gold and Labradorite Melinda Maria necklace (available at Nordstrom or ) works great with this neckline for a finishing touch.


Diamond Frosted Gala

VIP Bags
The 6th annual Diamond Frosted Gala was an evening full of sparkle, dancers and dressed to impress guests. The gala included the premier of Dori's Signature Collection and a short film, "The Big Date" held at KORQ Winehouse in Calgary, AB.
Earlier this year, Dori was selected to show at WWDMAGIC in Las Vegas, NV as an Emerging Designer. 

The performance began with dancers and models wearing contrasting colours showing off Dori's Signature Collection. Background stories about the brand and jewellery displays  were positioned throughout the three level venue. Following the presentation, Go-Go girls danced the night away.

My favourite piece from the event was the Winters Eve Headphone/Earmuffs that are both practical and fun for winter. Dori's F/W 14-15 collection covers every woman from pretty pearls to edgy wings and timeless bangles. Visit to learn more about  the jewellery and accessory collections.

The Holidays are my favourite time of year - Sparkling lights, parties, yummy food and of course a time to add conversation starting jewellery to any look.
When dressing for holiday parties a little sparkle goes a long way. Find glamorous pieces to dress up your look for the holidays that can also be worn throughout the rest of the year. 
I like to play around with pairing statement pieces with more casual clothing, so they aren't sitting in a jewellery box for the rest of the year! 

Gemstones are great for holidays as they are naturally beautiful and have a sparkle to them. Labradorite is huge right now as it is stunning with gold settings (often a F/W metal). Quartz shimmers beautifully in different lighting, and pyrites and H…

I'm in love with Fall. Fall is a beautiful time of year, with changing leaves and stunning sunsets. There is a glow around the world that only happens for a short time as the weather changes. It is a transition from fun summer memories to holiday cheer. However, the best thing about fall is the layering of clothes, boots, and cold weather accessories that come with it. 
Fur vests are my fav staple for F/W, they are timeless and versatile. Fur vests can be styled several ways, fur (real or faux) adds texture to any look.  Layer waist length vests over a dress or high waisted skirt for a day to dinner look. A longer vest works well with pants or leggings or over/under a jacket for a more casual look.  R…
