How does a new pair of Steve Madden "Swindlee" sandals sound? (An amazingly cute, nautical inspired style!) And, pair those new sandals with a custom designed, matching necklace from local Saint John artisan, Emma Barlow from "Darling Dilemma"!
Sounds like fun!
Step 1 - Let's meet Emma from Darling Dilemma and the beautiful necklace she has designed for the giveaway!
Born in Ontario, but now living in (and loving!) Saint John, Emma has 2 fine art diplomas and a love for beads, jewelry design, fashion and expressing funky creativity. In getting to know Emma over the past year as a customer at our store, we'd best describe her as a gal who likes to "colour outside the lines"....a confident woman who isn't afraid to be unique with her style!
|Emma, the designer behind Darling Dilemma!|
Turning a personal hobby of creating unique jewelry pieces for herself, Emma started selling her designs to others when she opened her online shop on Etsy.com in 2010.
What makes Emma's designs so unique and special is that she never makes the same piece of jewelry twice! Her creations are completely one-of-a-kind, made just for you. You can request a special piece based on your favourite colours or, you can shop her one-of-a-kind pre-designed pieces on her Etsy shop. Whichever way you purchase a Darling Dilemma piece, you can be assured no other gal in Saint John will be wearing it! How amazing is that!
Here's a sampling of some of Emma's work....we love the colours, especially for pairing with bright Spring outfits!

Now the best part, here's a preview of the beautiful necklace Emma has designed to match the giveaway sandals! Oh la la! SO cute! Gold links, white lava stones, a dark porcelain bead and our favourite part - white ribbon around the neck, finished with bows!

Step 2 - Let's meet the "Swindlee" sandal by Steve Madden!
Swindlee is a fun and casual thong style sandal that recently landed at Manchester Shoe Salon as part of our Spring 2012 Collection. White patent leather and shiny gold loops creates a nautical look that screams summer and warm, sunny temperatures!
The styling possibilities are endless with Swindlee - a sun dress, crop pants, shorts, swim suit....we can see this sandal poolside or strolling the streets of Uptown Saint John!
