Piecing it together...

Lately, I’ve been looking for a pair of earrings that are small and elegant yet edgy enough to make a statement. My personal style varies depending on my mood hence, why I like to keep an eclectic mix of classic accessories. So, you can imagine my excitement when I came across these earrings (at Little Burgundy in Sherway Gardens):

The earrings also comes in a silver plating but, the warm gold seemed perfect in light of my wardrobe.

Anyways, being the classic klutz I was, I ended up losing 1 out of the 3 pieces that make up the Benscoter earrings, while setting my bag down. Though, to my surprise, the sales girl was incredibly kind and didn’t hesitate to reassure me. She even suggested ordering from their website since, the store had none of the gold left.

Little Burgundy offers customers the choice of ordering their items online for free shipping (in Canada). They do try to ship the items off to your address the next day but, it really does depend on the stock at their warehouse.

I received my earrings a week after ordering, in a biodegradable package (trendy and environmentally-friendly) and I couldn’t be happier.

I guess the reason why I’m gushing about Little Burgundy is because, it’s among the few stores that maintain a cool yet mod approach through the products they offer. Despite being a chain store, once inside, the decor and great customer service really add to your experience. Plus, the designer selections offered (i.e. Jeffrey Campbell, Herschel, House of Harlow 1960, Marc Jacobs…etc) are worth your while!

Looks like the staff of Little Burgundy will be seeing me waltz into their store slightly more frequently from now on!

My mother is the child in this photograph. Her father, my Grandfather, C.T. Benscoter is beside her, and his sister Anna is beside him. Behind them is the older generation. C.T.’s mother, Ida Taylor is the woman on the far right, and next to her are her siblings. The photograph is a great portrayal of the ancestral world.
