Jewerly Haul from Canada

Although I am yet to upload onto my computer the 500 (or more!) photos I took on my three week Canada trip, I have already photographed all my new jewelry from there that I got. I honestly wasn't planning to do much shopping on this trip, but as I walked into a small jewelry store in Old Town Quebec City, I fell in love with the jewelry they sold! $10 a pop, sometimes even cheaper. And the added bonus of the lead-free guarantee kind of won me over. So I decided to do all my back-to-school jewelry shopping back in Canada. Don't laugh when you see how many feather-related products I got ;)


 I love these earrings! This was the first time that I was able to find feather earrings being sold that weren't so long that they were up to my shoulders, nor were they those tacky neon ones that I so didn't like. I love the color and the style!

Lately I am easing into a boho style, and these earrings fit the mark. Kinda long, but oh-so-bold and I just fell in love with them!

$12.90 for designer earrings, anyone? Most designer knock-off jewelry is so tacky looking, but these look so authentic. Even if there was no such thing as the Chanel logo, I would have gotten these, they're so cute and go with everything.


And yet another feather print. This bright peacock print just caught my eye and when I saw it, I instantly thought of three shirts that would look great with it. Kinda went feather-crazy when I walked into this store, I know. At least I didn't grab that third pair of feather earrings I was so coveting ;)


And now, some Forever21 accessories that I got before. I feel that my style has changed a lot in this year, and I know it might change yet again, so right now I'm going for cheap buys that I can wear for a few months while they're in trend, and that's what I did with these pieces:

I don't wear a lot of arm-candy, but I do like wearing a bold bracelet once in a while, and these two seemed to fit right into my style.

 This photo doesn't do justice to my favorite necklace at all. But anyway, it's a bronze metal with that circle (Although the metal floral piece fell off the wooden circle, the horror! :O Better get a hot glue gun soon...) And I think I have worn it 10 times since I bought it, don't judge!

  11. Awesome jewelry finds, girl! Haha, loving the consistency with feathers here. I too go "iccck" when I see neon feathers. Seriously, what does neon really go with? When I see neon, I think highlighters for school. haha Anyways, glad that you enjoyed your little trip to Canada!
