Charming Charlie in Canada

Last year, one of my best friends moved to Vancouver after landing a job as a flight attendant with Air Canada. It took almost 12 months, but I finally made it there to visit her!
I had never been to Vancouver before, so I had a great weekend seeing the city and of course getting some shopping done. Included in my shopping  travels was an amazing trip to one of Canada's very first Charming Charlie stores in Surrey!

The location I visited is at Guildford Centre in Surrey, BC. There are three other locations in Canada right now, one in Victoria at Uptown Centre, as well as two locations in Ontario, in Brampton and in Vaughn.

I first discovered Charming Charlie back in 2010 during one of my first visits to Arizona. I remember walking in and being totally floored by the everywhere! And best of all, everything was organized by colour.  Since then, CC has been a "must visit" store every time I'm in the US, which is only a couple times a year (if that) imagine how excited I was when they announced they were coming to Canada!
After visiting the store in Surrey on March 21, I can happily report that Charming Charlie in Canada is all I would dreamed it would be! It's the same beautiful, bright, colour-coordinated store and has great jewels for great prices, just like in the US! 

I spent a good long while in there, mostly just ogling the prettiness but also making sure I looked at every display so that I didn't miss anything. 

I also wasted a lot of time trying to decide what I wanted. Shopping is hard when you want...well...everything. Charming Charlie doesn't make it any easier either because a lot of the time if they have something in one colour it might be there in another how do you choose?!
If you're like me, you don't choose, you just get both.
In the end, I left with lots of beautiful things. A few items for spring, a few adorable nautical themed pieces, lots of simple, dainty things (I am really into simplistic right now!) and even an adorable travel case to take everything home in.

Earrings: here and here
Rings: here.
Silver floral bracelet: here

I can't wait to style all of these fun things! Calgary's spring is off to a chilly start, but some of these pretty pieces are totally going to make it more bearable!
If you're not already, make sure you follow me on Instagram to see how I wear everything!

Big thanks to Charming Charlie for sending me on the funnest shopping spree I've ever been on, and to all of the staff at the Guildford Centre store for being so friendly and so helpful.
Welcome to Canada, Charming Charlie!

  2. I actually didn't know Charming Charlie had come to Canada until I saw your Insta posts! I'm so excited, since I've only been to the store a handful of times...but I love fun jewels!
