We are a brand born of a love for the beauty of restraint in design, the inherent grace of feminine strength, and the necessity to treat our environment and each other with love and respect.
Each of our carefully researched, styled, tested and distributed collections reflects a particular aesthetic and ethos. We hope some of these speak to your own style, and help you refine and redefine your own look and style philosophy in the process.

This year, Carolily is a proud sponsor of the Red Dress Gala in Kelowna and will be one of the designers in the fashion show. We could not be more excited to support such an incredible cause!
In preparation for this year's event, we also want to make sure that we help you look and feel your best. There is nothing quite like walking into a room radiating beauty and confidence. Here are some of our tips for getting gala ready!
But first, what is the Red Dress Gala?
The Heart Truth Kelowna, also known as the Red Dress Gala, is a fashion show fundraiser in support of the Heart and Stroke Foundation hosted on October 21. The evening serves to educate, empower and encourage women, and those who love them, to place women’s heart health first.
The Heart Truth Kelowna has raised more than $125,000 in the past 5 years and has firmly established itself as the premier fundraiser for women’s health in Kelowna.
If you'd like to purchase tickets for this wonderful event, you can do so HERE.
Be True to You
One of our most favorite things about dressing up is you can take it as an opportunity to express yourself. There are such a wide array of cuts, colours and styles available that you don't ever have to wear something that you don't feel 100% comfortable in. There is nothing more attractive than someone who is completely confident in what they are wearing.
Accessories Are Key
Often, the difference between a good outfit and a great one is the accessories. They not only help to compliment what you are wearing, but they are another outlet of self expression. A stunning braceletor statement-making necklace can help take your outfit up a notch. And to be clear, this doesn't just apply to the ladies! Lapel pins and pocket squares are essential for any gentleman!
Below are a few of our favorite ways to add some personality to your outfit.
Have Fun With It
No matter the occasion, have fun with your outfit! Whether that means stepping out of your comfort zone with a different colour, having a custom necklace or lapel pin made, or trying a new hair style, you may be surprised how good trying something new makes you feel.
How Carolily Can Help
If you have your dress or suit selected already, email us a photo to give us an idea of the look you're going for. We can either help select one of our Signatureor Statementpieces, or create a Customone-of-a-kind necklace or lapel pin.
We are so grateful for the opportunity to support the Red Dress Gala, as well as the Heart and Stroke Foundation, and look forward to seeing everyone in a couple of weeks!
A special thank you to our fabulous photographer, Elizabeth Dunning, and our beautiful models, Lisa Stephenson, Dave Stephenson, Matthew Hammond, Lisa Kelley, Hannah McNee and Tara Sebastianis.

Over the past three years, we have seen countless small businesses shut their doors. Far too many shops were unable to cope with the loss of business and were left with no other choice.
If we want to see small business not just survive, but thrive, we have to take our power back from big corporations!
