MICHAEL HILL | Unboxing 2 gorgeous pairs of earrings

The Lady-like Leopard has a new unboxing video on YouTube featuring a couple pairs of gorgeous earrings from Michael Hill. I haven’t done a video in eons and I’m really excited to share this one with you!

I’m a sucker for earrings. I’m obsessed with them. I collect vintage earrings and have my ears pierced a total of 10 times (and counting). Oh, let me tell you a funny story. So the other day I was on the streetcar on my way to TOM* Fashion Week and I overheard this kid talking about me to his dad. He goes, “Wow! Look dad, that girl has so many ear piercings. I wonder where else she has them. I bet she has one on her eyeball!!!”

I didn’t turn around to face him though because I didn’t want to burst his bubble that I do not, in fact, have a piercing on my eyeball. Kids…

Anyways, I was super excited when Michael Hill contacted me for a collaboration – AKA a little glimpse into earring heaven! My package arrived yesterday afternoon and I couldn’t wait to open it up. I picked out two pairs of earrings that I feel best describe my personal style: minimal with a twist. You’ll see what I mean when you watch the video.

Thanks Michael Hill for sending me these stunningly perfect earrings! I’m sure I will get plenty (if not too much) wear out of them. Now, check out the full video below! Which earrings are your favourite? I can barely decide. No, actually, I’m not even going to try to decide.

THE SHILANGO LAUNCH | Behind the scenes at the official photo shoot

About a month or two ago (so, this counts as a #ThrowbackThursday post) I helped style a photo shoot for Shilango Jewellery for their official launch! Last September Shilango had what they call a ‘soft launch’ but now it was time for the real deal. Paola Silk, the beauty & brains behind Shilango, got some of Toronto’s best like Shayne Gray Photography, Sherlyn Torres Beauty and model Abbie Oliveira together for the shoot.

We worked for hours on end, photographing every single piece in Shilango’s collection! Abbie brought some outfit options and I worked with three of them creating a day time look, a night on the town outfit and a neutral one to show off some of the brighter pieces. It was a lot of fun! But then again, with great people, how could it not be a good time? It was a long day but definitely one filled with lots of laughter – and coffee, lots of coffee.

Thanks everyone for a great shoot and thank you to Shilango Jewellery for including The Lady-like Leopard in your launch. Love you!
