it’s the subtle superstars along our paths that make it all worthwhile…

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 & Co. PopUp Shop in New York’s Nolita ♥

Add a comment

 Sienna Ray & Co., lovable leather handbags & accessories, has spread its wings from Vancouver to NYC’s Mott Street in a PopUp shop sure to please. The boutique, which will be open from Thanksgiving weekend until Christmas Eve, offers a selection of special edition handbags, clutches, cosmetic cases and leather goods catering to the East Coast woman. For the first time Sienna Ray & Co. will debut a capsule collection of men’s small leather goods, RAY87, including wallets, cardholders, and laptop bags. The PopUp will be a true reflection of the brand’s marketing statement, ‘luxurious from the outside in’, capturing the playfulness in the overall shopping experience for it’s customers.

The boutique will embody a similar vision to the handbags: clean and inquisitive, giving customers the opportunity to touch and feel the product, also to see that there really is more then meets the eye. Each handbag is multifaceted just like the New York woman, a bag to rely on that can be with you and enhance your energy from day to night.

“Immediately when we signed the lease I wanted to include other inspiring designers in this opportunity and initiated a series of events ‘PopUp in a PopUp’. I wouldn’t be where I am today without all the help and support from friends, family and industry successors. I feel the PopUp shop is a true test to the brand. I see crisp white walls, edited product, multiple color stories; with accent of our signature lining from dress forms to delicately wrapped Christmas parcels, surrounding the atmosphere with holiday love and gift giving.

The location could not be more fitting in the high-end independent design area of NoLita. I feel extremely humbled to be in a radius of talented designers and brands. I am equally so proud to embrace my Vancouver roots, being situated on a prime shopping trail of Canadian success starting with Artizta on Broadway/Prince, John Fluevog footwear on Mulberry and now Sienna Ray & Co. around the corner.”- Founder & Creative Director, Natalie Kathleen

The Sienna Ray PopUp is located at 252 Mott St, just north of Prince St. Open 7 days a week Novovember 23 – December 24, 2012. Store hours: 11AM-7PM Mon-Sat & 12pm-6pm Sun.

3 years & drastic transformations in fashion

 

MTV Video Music Awards, Sept. 13 2009

 

nerdy chic- Nokia Plaza L.A. LIVE on Feb. 13, 2010

 

all grown up- Golden Globe Awards on Jan. 16, 2011

flashy central- Aug. 14, 2011 VH1 Do Something Awards

 

with the queen of fashion during D&G celebration- Fashion's Night Out on Sept. 8

 

Breaking hearts all over the world, teenage music sensation Justin Bieber has some serious style. Over the past  three years he has completely transformed his look from geek to chic. (he also probably has the best styling team to help out) Justin is not afraid to take risks in his wardrobe, and is now even considered a fashion icon. Baby, baby, baby, OH …we want to see more from the “biebs”!

 

celeb sightings: Bring on the “babette” for Sienna Ray (Scarlett Johansson)

Add a comment

sexy scarlett johansson rocking a cross body

 

better believe this is a babette!

 

The sexy movie starlet, Miss Scarlett Johansson always looks chic- even when she is out and about on the town. Sienna Ray’s babette mini cross-body in jet black can keep her style on track. Known as the adventurous bag, “babette” is compact but clever. Whether you opt to grab the slim top handle or rock the adjustable chain strap, this bag is ready to go anywhere at anytime. A hidden mobile phone pocket, dual interior compartments & outer recessed zip pocket keeps your possessions in check and you footloose & fancy-free.  Scarlet and Sienna Ray’s “babette” are both total babes!

travelled thursday: Polish dupe of Rachel Zoe’s new apartment

Add a comment

Everything Rachel Zoe does these days seem to make such a statement. Remember my recent obsession with Lulu Frost rings, well she just blogged about them and everyone is going ba-na-nas for the rings.

I just saw an episode of the Rachel Zoe project of her moving into her new apartment. It’s very clean and there is a lot of white. Check out this house designed in Poland that resembles what Rachel Zoe has. Isn’t gorgeous?

loving the chalkboard wall

gotta love the high ceiling

great possibilities for mix and matching

talent tuesday: fashion’s night out 2011

1 Comment

Fashion’s Night Out (FNO) was originally conceived by Anna Wintour in 2008. For me, FNO is like a city wide fashion show that is open to the public. Designers and important people in the fashion industry make appearances at retail stores that are showing their latest fashion. FNO is definitely a love child of fashion and fun.

To list a couple of my favorite in store events on 10/8…

Phillip Lim boutique will be transformed into a ‘Girls on Bikes stop’ in the vein of a truck stop but for chic girls around town who ride bikes! 6pm – 11pm

Oscar de la renta will have a special FNO collection available online

Alexander McQueen Collect one of a limited number of FNO2011 keys containing a special code for the chance to win an Alexander McQueen Folk Tote. Enter your code online to see if you’ve unlocked the gift.

modern monday: W London

Add a comment

Lately I’ve been attending a lot of charity and social events. A fashion and finance mixer I attended this Friday at the Hudson Terrace got me fantasizing about me throwing my own mixer at a fabulous venue. I had heard a lot about W London, but unfortunately have not been to London, England myself yet. The pictures I found provided me with an excellent idea of what the venue is like though. I’ll be sure to send my readers invites if I ever get to London and have enough dough to throw a party at the W London.

wouldn't mind waiting for the elevator!

love the hanging lamp

cooler than the snack bar at some hotels?

modern and futuristic

talent tuesday: max azria, resort 2012

Resort 2012, unlike the fall where everything was about skin tight skinny jeans and jeggings, is all about volume and fluidity. I’m happy to say, now that clothes don’t hug every curve of my body, I feel a little better about treating myself to a nice ice cream sundae every so often.

Here are some of my favorite  pieces from the Resort 2012 collection. Photo credit:Style.com

I’m Gemma Burgess,Creative Director of New Issue Design. My company specializes in editorial design and I have worked on many high profile magazines both in Canada and internationally. Originally from the UK, I moved to Vancouver 2 years ago after travelling the world for 7 months.

I knew Natalie back in London, England where I worked for the Cosmopolitan Group and since moving to Vancouver we have become very good friends. You can always find us enjoying a cocktail or two at various trendy Yaletown bars or checking out the latest fashions in Holts.

I love all of Natalie’s luxurious bags and already have quite a collection. My absolute fave though is my stylish black leather ‘Gem bag’ that Natalie named after me, which was an honour. It is such a neat design and I can dress it up or down depending on how I wear it. It is just the right size to carry my wallet and the all important lip gloss on a night out.

It has even been known to carry one diaper and a packet of wipes, so I can be a chic mom on the go with my 15 month old son. Who said moms can’t be glamorous!

From stunning ballads to toe-tappin’ grooves to rhythmic original music, this songster has mega vocal chops with her own unique sound. Her original compositions showcase her dynamic range and combine quirky lyrics with major elements of romance and cool groove. The current goal is to create “jazz for the new generation,” and unite old school sounds with new school ideas and concepts. She has produced 3 CDs: one EP studio album (Girl From Ipanema), Live @ Rotary Centre For The Arts (sold out), and Live @ Firehall Centre For The Arts (with a 4 piece band).

Jackée will be heading into the recording studio to record her highly anticipated first full-length studio album. The album features top Canadian and American musicians coming together to play in the band. She will be recording several original songs as well as some jazz standards and covers. Jackée is really excited to be finally putting together a full-length album that represents all sides of her personality, groove, eclectic energy and love of languages. 

An upcoming tour is in the works. Jackée and her quartet will be touring British Columbia in the fall. They start in Vancouver and play the Cellar Jazz Club on wed Oct 6. Their last performance at the club was sold out and reservations are highly recommended.  HYPERLINK “http://www.cellarjazz.com/” \t “_blank” www.cellarjazz.com The quartet travels through the province to such places as Kelowna, Vernon, Kamloops and Victoria.  Make sure to spread the word, the next tour won’t be until spring 2011!

Having first met the talented Jackee preforming quartet style ala swank rooftop of a gastown penthouse for the inaguarl Designers on Designers event, I have yet been able to get her tunes out of my head.

The utmost favourite is by far her rendition of ”Girl From Ipanema” – which you’ll notice compliments our ss2011 behind the scenes video (coming soon) with an effortless coolness & so suited for a summertime picnic affair.

Not only do we at Sienna Ray love Jackee, she been busy for the last 2 years and making her mark as one of Canada’s new and exciting vocalists. As a vocalist and composer Guillou creates an organic well structured canvas. Jackée’s voice is raw and emotional with intensity so sultry that it lingers long after the last note.

We are thrilled to have such a wonderful individual to kickoff our ongoing “sienna ray admires” posts!

steph relaxing with her sunday belt purse

stef and her sunday belt purse

I’m Stefanie, I live and play in Kitsilano, Vancouver. I am currently at school studying Italian and Spanish in the Romance Studies program at UBC.

The last couple of summers I have been in Sardegna, Italy working at a street night market selling little wooden dolphins to tourists! This allowed me to enjoy what beautiful Sardegna has to offer: beaches, sun, gelato, and warm friendly people. I learned my love for the Argentine Tango there, where I had my first lessons, and now I try to dance at the Vancouver Milongas as much as I can!

I discovered my awesome Sunday Belt when I was working at Hum on Main Street, and I saw it on a customer. She looked so comfortable and hip with her hands free and I had to know where she got it from!  I am so happy with my belt now, as it has helped me learn how to carry only the essentials with me;)

Everyone who compliments me on it has to touch it, and feel how beautifully soft it is! I know I will be making use of it for a loooong time.

In my belt:  I have my ipod, my phone, chap stick, a little change purse and all my cards.

Sunday belt purse can be viewed online or purchased at your local sienna ray retailer.
