While many people gravitate towards dark clothing in the colder months, I like to wear lights & brights to contrast the dreary weather.  I took colour cues from my favourite brightly patterned scarf and paired winter white with a pastel cardigan and vivid accessories.  I wore this outfit on Saturday for an afternoon of shopping at a holiday craft show, enjoying peppermint hot chocolate at a local cafe and date night at "Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs 2" (adorable, highly recommended!)

I wish days were longer so that I could blog on a regular basis like before, but life has other plans for me.  I'm still working full-time at Dress for Success Ottawa but have now added to that a part-time job at twiss & weber, designing a new website, taking a stylist course at QC Style Academy and thinking about starting a non-profit.  Phew its busy over at Tinfoil Tiaras but I'm still finding minutes in the day to put together cute outfits- because there's always time for that!


What's your cold weather dressing style?

tiaraiconCastellammare Jewellery

It's been over a month since I last blogged and I've missed y'all! I've been busy with work, cruising the Southern Carribean seas (photos to come) and an exciting new collaboration with Castellammare JewelleryCastellammare designer Marianna asked me if I would act as her vlogger for a few short videos on accessorizing and jewellery display for her website.  We had a lot of fun and I wanted to share with you the first 3 videos (shot on location in my clothes room by Kelly of Enter Kelly).

Happy watching (perhaps followed by some Castellammare jewellery shopping!) and until next time, ciao bella!
