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.

Halloween Sienna Ray Styled : The Designer Pumpkin Carving How To

Add a comment

It’s all in the details. The more unique the better. And matching our favorite outfit styling of mixing casual with formal / day to night / high and low we’ve taken a modern design approach to traditional pumpkin carving!

Ingredients are the usual: good group of friends, big orange vegetables, cutting & digging tools – plus a little acrylic paint for the going the extra ten yards.

Pull on your holiday spirit, roll up your sleeves, tis the season to let your creative juices flow…

 How to carve a designer halloween pumpkin!

Tips & Tricks:

Selecting Your Pumpkin:

*only one side will be seen so find a good “face” is most important

*try not to pick your pumpkin up by the stem as (like mine did!) you’ll tear the cute topper right off

Inspiration:

*think color blocking, traditional colors mixed with a pop color

Tools:

*local art store for acrylic paints and inexpensive brushes

*a couple good spoons for pulling out the guts

*thin serrated knife for detail cuts

*large sharpe knife for top and large cut outs

Design:

*can print a pic and use a toothpic to poke through creating an outline

*sharpie markers work great, soapy water can take excess off the pumpkin if you draw in error

*anything goes, think iconic rather than traditional to get the full designer pumpkin effect

Cutting + Carving:

*cut the top big enough to have plenty of room to get your hand in there to scoop out all the bits

*as a kid my favorite thing was to save the seeds and use mom’s special recipe for roasting pumpkin seeds

*make sure to keep the top/lid as this keeps the light inside

*covering the table in a plastic table cloth or even a bunch of garbage bags helps to let you get messy as ever – and I even used the covered table as my direct paint pallet

HAVE FUN, HAPPY HALLOWEEN!!

Tribal sure has made a place for itself in the seasonless trend section of my wardrobe. Something just simply fun about the hectic complimentary patterns. I’m loving the black+white contrast worked into a #toomuchisnevertoomuch mixup mashup of nail design.

..well the parrot is the queen of mockery. And we all know a little copy-cat action is the finest form of flattery!

Loving the color combo here, with a side twist of art deco and voila you’re weekly nails-to-get-noticed are ready to go.

Beads aren’t just for dresses anymore, treat your nails. Bring beaded sophistication to your nail beads, don’t they deserve it?

A dash of PUNK COUTURE @ The Met

Add a comment

So what to do when a Central Park picnic takes a rain delay….?

Take the girls to brunch and a bit of culture!

No need to look all too far away – been meaning to check out the PUNK exhibit since admiring all the rocker red carpet style from the Met Gala… while equally pondering just who were the stylists behind some of not-so-punk-tastic looks!?

And wow who knew what genius could be concepted with a few safety pins, studding, papier-mâché, spray paint & garbage bags!

BONUS discovery: new found love for the talent behind Maison Martin Margiela, impressive!

The mixer of the art world meets accessories, meets a whole lot of everything…!

It was a full house last Friday at 72 Wooster Street in SoHo. The crowd of eclectic young/old, creative/finance were there to explore the entertainment and shop the wonderfully curated mix of local underground artists and nyc accessory designers including AEA Jewelry, Shannon Shiang New York and Cestsla Jewelry – a sure inspiration for the first preview of Sienna Ray’s new lambskin jewelry collection!
