playlists & a giveaway: with tomate depingles





you know what i really love in fashion?
a gorgeous personality to go with an uniquely gorgeous look. i think the two working together is what pull off truly sensational, forward thinking fashion!

enter the wonderful tomate d'epingles! a sisterly duo who handcrafts gorgeous statement jewelry that possess the magic of speaking volumes without saying a word: just like great art does! and these two nicies are among the loveliest handcrafters around!

i have to tell you: i'm the proud owner of a number of tomatedepingles pieces (you know how i love fun jewelry!) and without a doubt, whenever i wear a piece, folks swoon over it!
and... as soon as i put on a tomate de pingles piece, i gotta say.. i just instantly feel gorgeous & smiley! magic, huh? keep reading to see how you can WIN one!

i love tomatedepingles and the brilliant ways artists Guylaine and Isabelle (one of whom is now working on their jewelry-ing full time! yay!) combine recycled, natural, vintage & retro elements into their magnificient accessories. film negatives into earrings, reclaiming leather into rings, these personality pieces are sure to charm!

{i thought you might also like to know that i love their work so much that this season some lucky rikrak customers receive tomate d'epingles jewelry as a gift with their purchase! you'll love it!}


so check out their beautiful shop, read a little bit more about these superstars here, and bask in the delight that by purchasing tomatedepingles, you're supporting eco-forward, cutting-edge, thoughtful fashion! now let's listen to their playlist!

dj: tomate depingles

playlist theme:
songs that make us happy &
that we just cannot not dance to!


1. Blind - Hercules and the love affair
We fell in love with this band and the lead signger, Anthony. He has such a spectacular voice!

2. Rainbow Warriors - cocorosie
cocorosie is a very fun and fresh band that has an aesthtic we adore


3. Fashion - David Bowie
David Bowie is an inspiration to us everyday... He has always been a trendsetter and everything he touches is gold

4. Underpass - John Foxx

This song is the quintessence of alternative electro in the 80s... we just adore it!


5. Just Can't Get Enough - Depeche Mode

How can anyone not dance to that song? Depeche Mode is awesomeness

6. Holiday - Madonna

We've been fans of Madonna since the very first album. We used to dance to her vinyl records in our pjs as kids :o)


7. Self Loathing Rulz - Shout Out Out Out Out

SO4 is a young canadian electro pop band. They rock in concert, its a must see!


8. Mixed Bizness - Beck

Beck is another one of those artists we've been following since the beginning. He has edge and humour... how fabulous!


9. Canned Heat - Jamiroquai

Retro sounding but always fresh and new, Jamiroquai has got it all


10. J'aime la bourgeoisie - numéro#

This is from the first album of a couple of friends of ours who have a fabulous electro pop thing going on.


in their own words: "we love music, we love to sing along, even sometimes indulge in kareoke, we love to go see good shows, discover new music... But we also love to DANCE! Its the best way for us to disconnect with all the rest and just have fun!"
