"Bringing Beauty To All It's Glory"

Yesterday a friend and I went to the opening of WARRIOR - Bespoke Finery by John James at Gallery 101 (inside 100 Wines by David Walker)

Now, I have been to another show by John James (aka Erin Ignacio) a couple of months ago. (Click HERE to read the piece on The ARK show).
Naturally, since I find Erin to be truly talented, I was very eager to attend the "Walk Like A Warrior" show yesterday.

Well again, I have been "wowed" with a show of fine jewelry that happens to be running now until March 24th, 2010. You'll see gorgeous necklaces that incorporate a variety of natural elements. It's a fusion of materials really - quartz & crystals, linked chains, pearlalized acrylic, suede, turquoise, red coral (and more) used to create 'breath taking' pieces.

Oh man, I was literally blown away! If you are looking for a necklace that's bold & beautiful, makes a statement and exemplifies the extraordinary, then feast your eyes on some of the images below. If you live outside of Calgary, but are interested in getting your hands on one of these fierce necklaces - send me an email or leave a comment and I'll give you more info:)

The earrings that you see in some of the images above are created by Christina Ignacio-Deines (Erin's sister). Her jewelery line is called Integral and can be purchased through commission and email at:

Fox Sparrow Vintage Boutique Has Changed Things Up!

I've talked about Fox Sparrow Vintage Boutique a few times on The Creative Mixx. Now although I work with one of the founders, there's no bias here, cause they really have an amazing selection of Vintage finds.

They used to have a shop on Ebay which gave you the online bidding shopping experience. But it's official y'all - they have recently moved their shop over to Etsy (one of my fave sites). So, there's no more bidding peeps. Instead, you can purchase their clothing outright. Basically if you see something you like, and it's available? Then it's basically yours!!!

And here's a perk for those living in Calgary - there's no charge for shipping!!!!

Right now there are 12 items up for grabs and more items will be up next week and every week from now on!

These are my faves~

Kelly Madden's Clothing Rock!

Wowsers! This week has really been flying and I'm not complaining about it!
I mentioned that the weather's been on the "mild tip" the other day and it seems that its gonna be this way for a little while longer!!!

A couple of weeks ago I landed on Kelly Madden's website and I liked the subtle edginess yet sexiness in her designs. You can catch this Albertan designer at Edmonton Fashion week on April 7th 2010.

So, If you are in the Edmonton area, be sure to check out her show, cause you'll get to see 10 pieces from her Spring/Summer 2010 collection as well as 5 preview pieces of her Fall/Winter collection.

Could Spring Be Just Around The Corner???

Well it's was lovely today in fact we hit a couple degrees above zero!

This got me thinking......should I start to look for some fab spring outfits??
