My name is Mariam Jangda. I serve style dreamers and doers who want to have fun with local fashion. As a Canadian, I must support (and shout at the top of my lungs) entrepreneurs who have a passion for their brand and a great story to tell.
My passion for all things fashion began quite early. Being the youngest of three children, I felt entitled to my mom and sister’s things. Rummaging through vintage pieces and playing dress-up made me realize that accessories are the icing on an outfit. The right accessories can have a positive outlook on how you feel at that moment. Don’t the right pair of heels make you feel like you can conquer the world? Why, yes!
You shouldn’t stress about what’s on-trend or looks the best together, but be honest with yourself and have fun in the process of discovering your personal style. Taking myself into account, my style has changed and grown so much over the years. There was a time when I HAD TO match my purse to my shoes, but now I’ve learned the art of contrast. Major style changes have depended on where I’ve been living and the company I have at a certain point in my life. Bauble Stories is meant to showcase those styles, influences from the market and to encourage women like you to take ownership of your personal style.
This blog will also be a creative outlet for DIY projects. I started a jewellery business in 2012 but after some unsuccessful feats, the project fell through. I’ve since picked myself up, learned about design elements and care about Canadian brands that have a story to tell; which I’d love to share with all of you.
I strongly believe in the motto “in omnia paratus” – ready for anything; which coincidently comes from my favourite TV show Gilmore Girls. (“Oy with the poodles already” and give me a shoutout on Twitter!)
Stick around to catch glimpses of what I’m up to from walks around the city, finding knick-knacks at local markets and let’s not forget encouraging you to support local dreams.
