castellammare designs giveaway

This giveaway is now closed- thanks to all who entered!
Jewellery- c/o Castle on the Sea by Castellammare Designs; Jeans-Swapped; Top & Shoes- Thrifted

I love discovering new things about people I know.  Just recently I found out that one of my colleagues at Dress for Success is not only a pro at Excel spreadsheets (she saved my life with data entry), she is also a jewellery designer! She recently launched her Etsy shop,  Castellammare Designs (Italian for castle on the sea) which features funky, affordable and versatile pieces.  I'm Tinfoil Tiaras, and she's Castle on the Sea, it's like we're a match made in heaven watery royalty!  
I'm wearing the 'So You Wanna Try Neon' necklace as a belt (which I then wore as a hairband later in the day, versatile, just like I said!) & the 'English Rose' bracelet.
