Want to be Cinderella for a night?

If you are like me and dream you were living in a time and place where dressing in ball gowns and attending grand parties were a part of your reality, I have just the weekend plans for you!
This Saturday evening is the Austrian Society of Montreal's annual ball. It takes place in the ballrooms of the Ch√Ęteau Champlain Marriot hotel and offers a night of entertainment including music and dance, a five-course meal, casino and much more. All proceeds from the evening's event go to help great causes such as the SOS Children's Villages, McGill music students and LeaveOutViolencE(LOVE).
Flying solo? Even better! You may just meet a prince (or princess), I did;) So dust off your party shoes and join us for a magical night!

Then, get your costume on for an evening of Halloween fun including food, drinks, dancing, a lingerie fashion show featuring trink jewelry (!!) & more! The best part is that everything is FREE but donations to Centre Latitude Fitness' new foundation will be welcomed. They will be helping families in our community prevent illness by educating them in health, fitness & cool is that?!

Tribute to Coco, Mademoiselle

Yes, I recently saw the 'Coco avant Chanel' movie and haven't been able to stop stringing pearls since! Not only did Miss Chanel create a complete style movement but she also inspired oh so many designers and continues to do so, which is why I have decided to dedicate this blog to her. Thanks Coco! xo

trink History 101

For those of you who don't know me personally, I first started to sell my jewelry from a wonderful little shoe store called Europa shoes in Pointe Claire, formerly owned by my cousin's family, now owned by my dear friend Amanda. Not only did I start to sell trink at this boutique when I was just a teenager but it was there that I grew into the shoe/accessory crazy girl that I am now;) I worked there part time as I went to school and learned all about accessorizing as well as how to fit numerous shoe boxes into the smallest spaces (back-store strategies), which believe me, has all come in handy!! I retired from the shoe biz just in time to open my own boutique, trink, but still have jewelry for sale at Europa. So if you are in the West Island and need fabulous footwear (and maybe some trink), go see my friends at Europa, they will take good care of you! latest purchase from Europa, Manitobah mukluks! Look even better with crystals sewn to the fringes, courtesy of trink;)

Kytami for trink

Now that I got my excitement for fall out of my system, I would like to rewind to March 30th, 2009 when I had the pleasure of working on a photoshoot for trink with a lovely friend of mine, violinist Kyla Leblanc (Kytami), of Canadian music group Dehli 2 Dublin.
Kyla was in town, from Victoria B.C., for a show and was sweet enough to make the time to model for me! It was great to work with her as she is not only a talented musician but a natural born model as well, so we discovered! And at the end of our day of shooting, I got to relax & unwind to Delhi to Dublin, in show! Lucky me! Thanks Kyla xo

With the start of the new season now official, I thought it the perfect time to start something new...Your Weekly Trink!
Fall is my ultimate favorite time of year, crisp air, beautifully colored leaves, fabulous fall fashions... and fall jewelry!
This fall seems to be about bold pieces, bright colors and sparkle- three of my favorite things! So don't be shy, take out those jewels reserved for "special occasions" (every day is a special occasion;) and be glamorous!
