#ARMEDBFF

Desiree Girlato

This past summer we held a special Instagram contest looking for two best friends to be the faces of our redesigned "Best Bitches" necklaces! Designed here in Toronto by Desiree Girlato, our sterling silver pendants are a classic old school throwback for life long besties who are kids at heart! 

"Here's to... the crap we talk, the crushes we stalk, the way we shop, laughs we can't stop, the gossip we spill, the looks that could kill. We'll stay together cause we are best forever"

Local Toronto ladies Cassie Fawcett and Marley Burgess were our lucky winners, and were treated like the super models they are with a photo shoot styled by the ARMED team!  The ladies gave us a little inside glance at their friendship below.

    We are both so spontaneous. No matter what the situation is, we will always say yes. 

5. What’s something your bestie does that drives you bananas?

    She makes me spend money because she knows I will always say yes to going out to dinner, or going out for drinks or going shopping.
