Talk about off-beat brides! Wedding Bells magazine did a beautiful editorial entitled Paper Doll, and thought of CTVC for jewels!
It just goes to show that one doesn't only need "safe" jewelry to adorn a spectacular wedding dress. Making a unique statement specific to your day is IN!

Open this issue of Glamour magazine and you will see everyone's favourite new star, Janelle Monae. Look a little closer and she's wearing CTVC vintage Chanel earrings!
Monae is known for her classic tux-y look. Naturally CTVC was the perfect choice to accessorize. She is the perfect example of how vintage and a timeless look will never go out of style.
Glamour disclosed some of Monae's tips to find your own style. One of her main points was "Be timeless. I don't like trends; in photos, I'm not expired."
We agree, Janelle!
Stay Fabulous (And Timeless!)

I was so thrilled to be featured in an up-and-coming Canadian fashion magazine called Plaid. Headed by Odessa Parker, it is a trail-blazing look at offbeat style. I sat for a great interview with Parker for the summer edition of the magazine, and was delighted when she brought a copy to me!
Photographer Brendan Smyth did a great job!
The interview is very comprehensive about my history with collecting and the photos feature some of my favourite pieces, including the Schreiner cluster I was wearing that day:
You are now able to purchase Plaid at Chapters/Indigo. For now take a look at their website!

With all the wonderful color that has been appearing this year in the fashion industry, who ever thinks of black and white anymore?? I do!! I have a fabulous story of black and white jewelry on New Additions this week.
These treasures can be worn in all seasons and add a punch to whatever outfit you imagine.
My Tip: Don't think of rhinestone jewlery as just appropriate for the evening. I wear them with jeans and a tee shirt as well for an extra pop!

One of our favourite style icons, Samantha Beckermand (1/3 of the dynamic Beckerman Bite Plate trio), recently rocked 1920s celluloid bracelets from us at CTVC as part of a collaboration with Juicy Couture.
These types of bracelets have become extremely rare! They're from the 1920s and are crafted from celluloid, a type of plastic often referred to as "French Ivory". The crystals adorning them really make them sparkle. They look completely fantastic in groups, something Samantha fully embraced with this deco rock n' roll look!
