Get Your Sexy On Fashion Show

Last year, I had the good fortune to have met Miss Tierra Sedgemore, the delightful woman behind the brand Size Sexyclick here to for that story 🙂

Early this May, Tierra hosted a fantastic evening of entertainment and curvy fashion entitled: Get Your Sexy On at The Uptown Lofts in Toronto.

CAUGHT ON CAMERA!!!  I just arrived at the venue (donning my uber short haircut out-out for the first time).  Here I’m  getting the inside scoop on how the event was gonna unfold.  Chatting with the dynamic duo – Tierra & her hubs
These events are always a great opportunity to catchup with the lovelies of the plus-sized communities in the city.  As well as seeing all the gorgeous fashion-forward creations of independent designers up close and personally.

Take a look at who I bumped into that night:

Good thing I made that poutty-face, or I’d have missed out on these lovely bracelets 😉  “Thank-For-Coming” gifts created by Maryanne of MyBeadedDesigns, click here for more on her.
OK!  Back to the event!!!

Swarovski PAW & My Beaded Designs

This table is covered in lovely jewellery by My Beaded Designs.  These unique and custom handmade creations are the brainchild of Maryanne Walczak, a Toronto-based artist.SEXYPLUSPREVIEWF14-37I had the pleasure of meeting this crafty gal last month at SexyPlus Clothing’s exclusive blogger soiree.

PPMeow & MyBeadedDesigns
Me with Maryanne, Owner/Designer of My Beaded Designs

Turns out she’s been a long time follower of PPMeow!  She was touched by the blogpost I did as a Tribute to the passing of my pup, The Berto a few months ago, and wanted to gift me a set of memorial Swarovski PAW jewellery to help lift my spirits and keep his memory with me always, by way of these symbolic pieces 🙂  (Isn’t she the sweetest?)

The special collection gifted to me in the picture below included:

  • small Swarovski PAW Print necklace (Black Clay, Clear Swarovski Chatons – hung on a 24 inch silver plated ball chain with an 8mm Swarovski Jet Black Crystal)
  • Swarovski Dog PAW Print keychain (White Clay, Hematite Swarovski Chatons, Cute Charms and Chinese Crystals
  • Swarovski PAW Print Earrings (Black Clay, Clear Swarovski Chatons on silver plated lever back earrings – 12mm)
Your Collection 2
The beautiful gift set of  Swarovski PAW jewellery

Each piece is made with love by Maryanne, using an Apoxie Clay and then she hand sets each of the Swarovski Chatons (ie. the crystals).

My Beaded Designs original Swarovski PAW Print Necklace was designed and created almost 3 years ago.  The very first PAW Print necklace was donated to Urban Cat Relief (UCR) in memory of a kitten that volunteers tried to save, but couldn’t. Maryanne spent quite some time trying to figure out how to create something beautiful as a memory of such a sad event. Many tears were shed while Maryanne was making this first piece. And ever since that dreadful day when that kitten passed, she was determined to help UCR raise money so that they can do what they do best. Since that time she’s been able to create and donate to Cuddly Cats Rescue and Sanctuary and several other animal rescues and causes – donating $5 from the sale of every Swarovski PAW Print Necklace.  And she is now proudly known among these communities as “The PAW lady” :).

In 2014, Maryanne got involved in Toronto’s WorldPride event and introduced a few new pieces into the PAW collection:
– Rainbow PAW Print Necklaces/Keychains
– Love PAW Print Necklace/Keychains

Rainbow PAW Prints
Rainbow PAW Print Necklaces/Keychains
Love PAWs Necklace
Love PAW Print Necklaces/Keychains

From now until the end of the year, Maryanne and My Beaded Designs will be donating $5 to the Pomeranian and Small Breed Rescue (PSBR) in honour of Bert’s memory from every Swarovski PAW sold!! 🙂

Most of these Swarovski PAW Print Necklaces are priced at $15 (+shipping).

Orders can be made via the My Beaded Designs Facebook Page or via the Artfire Store (however, please note the store is not up-to-date).

Please use the code “PPMeow” when requesting your orders friends, so that the donations for PSBR can be tracked and collected easily from now until December 31, 2014.

I am personally very pleased and proud to be wearing such a lovely, stylish symbol of puppy love in memory of  The Berto.  AND am trilled to be able to help support Pomeranian and Small Breed Rescue in his memory at the same time  — Thanks so much Maryanne & My Beaded Designs. xo\
