My passion for creation is relevant in every step I take; whether it’s directly designing accessories for the collection, or building relationships with all the beautiful people I am so privileged to meet along this journey.

Credit for this fun photoshoot reaches out to a very talented business woman who feeds her creative side through the her vintage eyewear brand, Kajal of Kajal London. We first connected through a now very good friend of mine, whom I met in a factory elevator when I very first started calling NYC home. Hence not only am I humbled to be collaborating in Kajal’s Distinction Portrait Book, it is such an honour to witness us build such a supportive community. In a fashion world so often full of intimidation, it is as we step out of our comfort zone our businesses truly grow and flourish.

Today I’d like this feature to represent the #PowerOfHello – as you just never know what inspiration will be found through looking outward and smiling at strangers.

Jonas + the jona

I know we’re always posting about the beautiful women who inspires us, enrich our desires & passion to dream and reach for the stars…. however there’s no need to be sexist here, there are often very special men in our lives that deserve a spotlight as well.

Today (in great honorary of my new love for #ThrowbackThursday!) I would like to take a moment to thank a dear dear friend of mine.

Jonas has enjoyed many ’5 minutes of fame’ along his journey of life up to this point: with great success through TV + Film, owning a thriving Fashion Boutique in Brasil, astounding recognition as an interior designer and winning great accolades as a top host in the Rocky Mountains of Canada – to name just a few!

I am proud to say I’ve offered him up another, with giving him a gigantic piece of my heart for being such an influencer in the first footsteps of Sienna Ray… it’s on his very kitchen table that the first bag of Sienna Ray was created; with his genuine love to see me succeed that boosted my confidence to step into the world of handbag design.

Therefore I was able to share forward with you all a gift from Jonas, naturally he became the muse & name behind my effortlessly chic jona clutch. Always being up for a good time, big or small (ok not sure if Jonas understands ‘small’ as everything he touches in this world is extraordinary!) each moment alongside him is always special.

This little jona clutch grew along the first years of Sienna Ray with many tweaks and updates… with many of you making me feel honored by sharing, to this day, how you still use your clutches from five plus years ago – love you!

Sienna Ray enters the world of ‘bespoke’ with custom home furniture!

…well for the selected few to start – aka for the humble abode of own, my NYC pied-à-terre to be exact.

It’s a “cozy” kind of place. Truly makes up for lack of space with a splash of character here and there. Hence, why not take the opportunity to customize a few things. And as many are already are aware of, I have a little thing known as a love for soft silky leather!

Process was by far a ‘learn as I go’ experience. Just the way I like it, throwing myself head first into the challenge. Watch as I turn IKEA into Sienna Ray with a few simple tools and a ton of patience:

Nº 1 discover the perfect base, using cheap + cheerful IKEA klippan sofa

Sienna Ray Admires: Kaylee Johnston

Add a comment

My name is Kaylee Johnston, up-and-coming electro pop singer. I write all of  my own material and I’m currently working on my debut album. It’s Influenced by spirited females such as Heart, Joan Jett, Robyn, and Lady Gaga, my sound is up beat, fresh, and iconic.

My Sienna Ray bags are the perfect accessory for my busy life. Aside from the obvious items (cash, credit card, and keys), I never forget to bring a bold MAC lipstick shade and fav Barkleys organic mints. You’ll also find a little ziplock full of almonds floating around in there somewhere.

‘I have two Sienna Ray bags and I couldn’t tell you which one I love more. I have a light yellow leather bag that is really comfortable to wear, and I usually wear it on sunny days. My other bag is white leather with black salmon skin detail… this one is my go-to bag for late nights and good times!’ – Kaylee Johnston

Lisa’s Favs- 312style..so shoe me!

Add a comment

Lisa Goetzke was recently featured on [wander|lust]…around the world with Sienna Ray. Her fierce fashion sense and and spunk is directly portrayed on her blog  312style (so shoe me). We had the opportunity to ask Lisa her “fav” Sienna Ray styles and why. Here are her top 8 picks.

1) Bridget Glowing Tote in Sky
    The perfect pop of color this summer in a perforated leather tote. Perfect for pairing with a neutral mini dress and floppy hat for instant summer style.
2) Bobbi Slip-Strap Bucket Satchel in Jet
    Every woman needs a great black bag and the Bobbi is just that. Luxe black leather with a signature shine and antique copper details makes this a timeless treasure with a stylish twist.
3) Golde Switch-Strap Hobo in Tokyo
A deep purple textured leather can be worn as a neutral or as a pop of color and the adjustable strap offers new options on how to wear this oversized hobo.
4) Mimi Cross Body Fold Clutch in Mimosa
Modern geometric design in a butter soft leather offers versatility as a nighttime clutch or a daytime crossbody.
5) Jovie Pleated Tote in Capri
A refreshing jade hued bag will add an unexpected pop to summer basics, plus the rectangular shape and pleated textured leather adds a signature high-end touch.
6) Pippit Glowing Mini Cross Body in Lipstick
A hot hued bag in the perfect shade of red with a crossbody design that’s made for all your outdoor summer events – think street fairs, music fests and more!
7) Thelma Strappy Flat in Black
A necessity for summer this strappy black flat with gold hardware can be worn with casual cutoffs or a chic maxi dress for day to night versatility
Babette Mini Crossbody bag in Bedford & Sky
The quintessential crossbody bag in a neutral putty tone with pops of sky blue and gold create a signature style that can be worn with everything, anytime.

“Here are some snapshots of today’s outfit. As you can see it is all about the details with my new bag from Sienna Ray (love it so much), skull hairband, gold rings and Prada inspired sunglasses.

Hope you like the photos sweeties!”

You look fabulous Meanz- thank you so much for being a part of our style movement.

sweet spring picks! (the essentials for 2012)

Add a comment

Spring is the full swing! Here at Sienna Ray we are so excited to flaunt our new “field of dreams” SS12 collection filled with pops of bright color to accentuate any outfit! We also feel that there are some necessary wardrobe staples that every woman should get in her closet for spring 2012. We understand the terms “ballin on a budget” – basically look rich and shop cheap (as blogger Denny Wenny would say). Here are our tip picks- do I smell a shopping spree coming on? ;)

This bright yellow lemon structured  blazer from Top Shop is a MUST! We love the color and it screams spring. For $132.00 it is a piece that will stay in your closet for quite some time.

This bright pink blazer from H&M is the definition of chic, and for $29.99- WHAT A STEAL! Can we please have this in every color??!!!

We have to be a bit bias ;) These sky blue “avenue” leather loafers are from Sienna Ray & Co.’s SS12 collection. They are made with the softest lambskin leather, “smooth as butter”. These babies are  supper light, and will give you the illusion of walking on air! The avenue loafers go for $288…after all, shoes are a girls best friend.

Get your sparkle on! These glitzy glam flats are also from Sienna Ray & Co.’s SS12 collection. The “Louise” flats are the perfect summer shoe- from the beach to the Hamptons they are extremely wearable. They are made from the finest leathers…$149 & made to last! Every woman loves a little sparkle!

Step up your color game this spring! Colored jeans are in! Put away those old blue or black jeans, and get daring. These coral skinnies are from Paris Blues for Alloy, don’t worry you won’t have to break the bank- $29.90.

IN LOVE with these Jcrew tall café capris $89!!! They come in 9 different color options, what a perfect pair of pants for work! Spice up your office wardrobe with some color.

Simple, clean, and comfortable (in a variety of colors) for $ 17. Victoria Secret’s boyfriend T is a necessity for spring, and that’s that!!

What is summer really without a maxi dress? If this AX Paris bag over vest dress is not already in your closet then you are committing a fashion crime. For £20.00 get on it!

Three words: spring time swag! We are ♥’n the “Dalilha” sunnies by Jimmy Swagg. Big framed and oversized glasses are SO in for spring, get with the now. For $50 these shades will keep you cool all summer.

Sizzle this spring/summer in swimwear by Askua Collections. Now I know what your thinking, not everyone is ready to bust of the bikini. Aksua also does customized bathing suits to fit on any body type. We love their collections of color and prints, summa time fierce!

Well we had to save the best for last!! This “babette” mini-cross body by Sienna Ray & Co.  is our #1 seller for spring $349 (a pretty penny yes but so worth it!). Whether you opt to grab the slim top handle or rock the adjustable chain strap, this bag is ready to go anywhere at anytime.

Boom, done, over. The “jolie” everyday satchel by Sienna will be your new best friend. Big enough to use as a carry-on for traveling, and versatile enough to be your go-to everyday thang $449.

Whether she is in a costume bodysuit baring it all or glammed Sienna Ray’s “roxanne” east west satchel in jet black is the way to go! Our roxy (for short) is a compact version of the milife bag, it’s dual compartments & straps allow you to store and go effortlessly. Lady GaGa can even stash her bottle of wine in this baby (although she seems like a vodka girl to me)- whatever the case “roxanne” will be your new best friend.

From “Full House” to the front lines of fashion, Ashley Olsen is one trend setting sista! Cool laid back LA style sets the tone for Ms. Olsen’s look. Sienna Ray’s “prima” is perfect for travel and the jetset lifetsyle. This oversized satchel has just enough room for every thing a girl needs for an impromptu trip, without feeling too bulky. This closet staple is a must!

Sienna Ray's "miflie" bowling bag in jet

 

Perfectly Posh Victoria is at it once again! Always looking dolled up to the 9’s, she could use a Sienna Ray “milfie” bag to keep up with her luxurious lifestyle.   Not only is this handbag large enough to hold everything you could possibly need, it also has an optional cross body strap which enables the bag to be carried in a variety of ways.

spacious "milfie" bowling bag in cocoa

 

This modern milf has her hands full with a large family and so little time.  Sienna Ray’s “milfie” bowling bag in cocoa would be just the trick for Angelina Jolie! This beauty features two sizeable compartments with inner pockets, as well as easy to reach outer pockets. Whether you are storing baby bottles, disappears, or lipstick the “milfie” has a place for it all!

"jovette" fold over tote in caramel- supper soft leather

 

Cute and casual Jessica Alba is sporting a large handbag, which can only be worn one way. Sienna Ray’s feature “jovette” fold-over tote in caramel features a roomier design for daily necessities and is easily transformed into an appropriate night bag by simply adjusting the straps.  Any handbag with two looks is better than one!

well dressed wednesday: floral trends

cheers for fall flowers!

florals on the runway

I love that fall flowers are blooming. Though my favorite is the Tulip, I still find fall flowers very beautiful and intriguing. The Goldenrod, Japanese Anemone, Asters, Toad Lily are some of the beautiful flowers that bloom in the fall. This fall, flowers are translated through prints and accessories.

P.S. My recent receipt of a bouquet of red roses as a surprise practical joke from a friend got me a little curious about the (modern) meaning of flowers. Handy little guide in case you’ve recently received a bouquet of flowers from a secret admire or a special someone.

well dressed wednesday: featuring Kayture

Add a comment

This outfit was inspired by pebbles. They’re clean, white, and is strong and solid. The top Kayture is wearing is a white structured top. Her shorts are black which create a crisp contrast between the top and the bottom. I like the scalloped details because it gives the look a soft, yet clean edge. The Regal Sienna Ray bag is perfect for this outfit because we all know Sienna Ray is all about being luxurious from the outside in!

well dressed wednesday: denim fever

Add a comment

dark color palette = sophistication

Chambray has been big this year. It has influenced many designers to use more denim in their design. Accessorizing denim could be tricky because the garment is usually already very bold in style. Try pairing your denim piece with dark colored accessories for an edgy, grungy, and sophisticated look.

a mom moment

Add a comment

I had the timely pleasure of a birds eye perspective on a very lucky little girls 10th birthday party yesterday afternoon. It was literally view a from above of a neighboring courtyard at my current residence in the west vilage of nyc, where a overly energetic and organized mother had arranged numerous games and stations of activities for the multiple of children to engage themselves in along with the lucky birthday girl – complete with a pretty piñata and a build your own ice cream Sunday parfait! The best part was that i could see the event was the glowing essence that all was put on with the same genuine, at-home pride my mom naturally shared throughout my childhood and into my adult life. The same natural enthusiasm she shared for the duration of each and every annual holidays she also shared between multiple weekly sporting events, family vacations, shopping days out and really even just every night at the dinner table.  Always proudly to express that she was “my biggest sports fan”. At times embarrassing but now enamoring.

So many memories created, so many more to come.

Happy mothers day.

Love, your baby girl xx

If you love life’s random coincidences as much as I do, get a kick out of this one:

Met with the lovely Robyn & Mauricio of Shine PR yesterday afternoon and as Mauricio is flipping through our autumn2011 catalogue his gaze is caught by one of the photo’s… then he flips through his iPhone and shows me the identical bench – but the photo is taken in a Mexico City park across the street from his home in 1982.  How cute!!!

manufacture day out: shopping for new leathers!

Add a comment
5am: alarm sings me awake, shower, primp & bare essentials to complete my “shopping for leather day” look…
7:30am: quick SKYPE call checking in on mom, thankyou airport wifi, taking in the not-so-often viewed sunrise and ready for a successful relaxing day ahead
10:13am: don’t knock the wish list, sun is shining and in strutting my stuff down the walkway outside airport departures (the longest line of taxis ever!) and I spot a sweet ruby red black cab in the mix and say in my head “oh that ones mine”, then what happens, I merrily trudge along, some young man rushes ahead of me and ha, the car waiting after him just so happens to be my red black can: a lesson in patience by chance…!
10:23am: wow, must say my expectations of this “middle of nowhere industrial city” of guangzhau was definitely only my projection; only now traveling the highway and it is gorgeously abundant of flowers and perfected tidyness, plus the driver understands English – well I’ll soon find out when I arrive to my hopefully correct destination: garden hotel to meet Franco
6:04pm: Haha what a great and surreal day: trekking through hundreds of suppliers in china with my very own chinaman – all paid for including a massive traditional afternoon feast!  Even finished the day early and now catching an earlier flight back to shanghai, success. Erika awaits me with champagne for pre-new years celebrations.

5AM: alarm sings me awake, shower, primp & complete bare essentials to efficiently perfect my “shopping for leather day” look…

7:30AM: quick SKYPE call checking in on mom, thankyou airport wifi. Basking in the not-so-often-viewed beautiful sunrise with a soy latte in hand, I know this day is going to be great.

10:13AM: first education of the morning, don’t knock the wish list!  Sun is shining, I’m casually strolling down the airport departures outdoor walkway (hunting for the front of the longest line of taxis ever!) as I spot a sweet ruby red black cab in the mix and say in my head “oh that one’s mine”, then what happens, as I merrily strut along, some young man rushes ahead of me and ha, the car waiting after him just so happens to be my red black cab of choice: a subtle lesson in “patience pays off”…!

10:23AM: wow, must say my expectation of this “middle of nowhere small industrial city” was definitely only my pre-projection; now traveling the highway for way longer than expected and it is gorgeously abundant of flowers and perfected tidiness with acres and acres of high-rise commercial and residential buildings filling the far landscape. Next step, I’ll soon arrive to my central destination to meet Franco.

6:04PM: what a great and surreal day: trekking through hundreds of suppliers in the presence of my very own personal leather handbag guru  - finishing up the day with a massive traditional afternoon feast was definitely a bonus treat and well deserved with 5 hours of “kid in a candy shop” feelings!  Not only did we successfully discover great new leather styles & colors (hold tight…. top secret for now!), I built a great relationship with my local manufacture and ever-so-more thrilled to get started on many more wonderful things for Sienna Ray in 2011.
