the summer goddess glow : #creamsicle

summer goddess glow #creamsicle

We all know pink & red are the ways to play it safe with our luscious lips… and I don’t know about you, but the bright crayola colored lips are a bit too way-out-there for me to jump on that current trend bandwagon!

Needless to say I found a happy medium solution today!

So extra fitting, this soft creamsilce orange shade keeps the final lingering days of summer at the forefront of my smile.

west village wednesday…get your shop on!

Add a comment

It is a B E A U T I F U L day in New York City & the fashion elite are about and about decked from head-to-toe. Spend your Wednesday in the West Village with the trendiest boutiques in town. Smaller boutiques= a better/exclusive shopping experience with unique pieces that you will not find anywhere else.

 SAMPLE is our new fav spot to hit located between Elizabeth and Bleecker street. Besides being located in a great area, SAMPLE is famous for it’s “basic” knitwear that will keep you coming back for more. The boutique also carries a line, Vessel, which is produced and designed right here in New York City. Not only are the pieces fashion forward, the designer will take your measurements for a custom fit. After you have checked out all of the fab ready-to-wear hit the accessories wall. Our personal favs are the adjustable crushed diamond pyrite cocktail rings by Forma from Italy.

One more thing you should see in the boutique…SIENNA RAY!! We are now being carried by in the store, how fabulous is that? I smell a shopping spree.

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.

Seophora exclusive nail laquer stickers by OPI

Up your nail-art game! We are obsessed with these artsy stick on options. Just when we thought we have seen it all-along comes Sephora with their totally rad entry into the category. The new Sephora by OPI Trend Tips are the same trusty old nail polish strips we’ve all come to know and love, but in an amazing array of super-cool new patterns. (much more variety & better quality then Sally H.)

genious designer Jason Wu for Target!

Next month, Jason will debuts his 53-piece “gamine chic” collection for target, a very tightly edited collection compared to the 500 missoni pieces that took target by storm. The goods look pretty cool, with a certain ladylike appeal to match that of Wu’s very pricey main line, and the prices are certainly cheap ranging from $30-60. CANT WAIT!!!

Maini for H&M= MAGIC!

Versace relaunches line for H&M...i smell sucess?

H&M is on fiyahhhh! They just announced its next designer collaboration will be with Italian fashion house Marni. The Swedish retailer caused global hysteria earlier this month when the Versace for H&M line went on sale, and its earlier collaborations with high-end brands such as Lanvin and Sonia Rykiel have been just as successful. It will be available in 260 stores worldwide and online as of March 8, 2012. Will you be buying? 2012 will also see the release of a second round of designs from Versace creative director Donatella, whose Fall 2012 sold out in just half an hour in some stores. Fans of the collection can start preparing for the launch of the Versace for H&M cruise collection. Last week a spokesperson for H&M confirmed Donatella’s Spring pre-collection will be available January 19, although only in countries where H&M has an e-commerce site such as the UK, Germany, the Netherlands, Denmark, Sweden and Norway. Get your credit cards ready!

Oscar de la Renta for Beats by Dr. Dre

gime gimie gimie!!

Oscar de la Renta just released a set of luxe headphones in collaboration with Dr. Dre, which we are extremely excited about. The Beats by Dr. Dre headphones are covered in silver fox fur and of course, PETA has something to say about it. They sent a letter directly to Dre asking him to keep fur and exotic animal skins out of the product. Dre & Oscar haven’t made any comments about it yet- but lets just say I hope they stay just the way they are.

 

#1.

artist Yayoi Kusama for Louis Vuitton

Louis Vuitton’s collaboration with the late graffiti artist Stephen Sprouse in 2001 was probably the most exciting thing to happen to the monogrammed bag since the invention of the alphabet!  Their newest collab with Japanese artist Yayoi Kusama, who’s known for her red-and-white polka-dot art, might be just as brilliant. What fashionista doesnt have a soft spot for a little Lewy? Her spots will appear on LV products ranging from bags to clothing to jewelry this summer (though don’t plan on finding them on the Fashion Week runways in February)

This year shine brighter then the star on the top of your  Christmas tree (or lights on your Menorah) by frosting yourself with fabulousness! We all know that diamonds are a girls best friend ;) but so are emeralds, rubys, and sapphires. Treat yourself to a timeless piece of jewelry that you’ve been eyeing. We are so busy running around for the holidays buying everyone gifts, preparing to cook a huge feast for the fam, and decorating every corner of our houses/apartments that we put ourselves last. NO MORE! We deserve it…as the master Madonna would say ” cause we are living in a material world and I am a material girl”.  Happy holidays- xo

Our list has a little something for everyone ;) xo

sienna ray admires :: diane williams

Add a comment

My name is Diane Williams. I am a grandmum, and an executive with NuSkin Enterprises. We help people feel healthier and look younger, and empower them to build financial security. This makes me very happy.

I recently went on a wonderful Mediterranean cruise, and I took my Sienna Ray bag with me. It was the perfect companion – next to my husband. I typically carry everything in my bag – phone, makeup, notebook, wallet, brush, breathspray, and business planner.  And while travelling, of course, I needed to add a camera, passport, map and hand sanitizer.

Everything fits neatly into my wonderful bag.  And it looks slim, trim and beautiful. I absolutely love my Sienna Ray bag!

trend report: Psychedelic Furs that are FAB

burberry prosum- a very "cruella de vil" vibe

 

roksanda ilincic- totally rad! (great color combo)

 

carven- i am craving it!

 

prabal gurung- pretty fabulous

 

emanuel ungaro- AHmazing

 

PETA we are sorry- but fur is just too fabulous! It seems that nearly every designer in the industry is making the rainbow connection & giving their plush pelts-fox, rabbit and mink vibrant dye jobs. (and I’m not complaining!) In times of an economic downturn, the fashion world looks to ways to renew our desire for luxury. Can you say contradiction? BUT in many ways it stands to reason that fur has played such a prominent role on the runways for years *running* the luxury upscale market. Colored furs have always been around, but they are back on the block and here to stay for winter2012. Santa is coming soon…is a psychedelic rabbit or mink on your Christmas list? x0

thirsty thursday: Champagne Campaign!

Add a comment

champagne campaign

 

moet gold case- top of the line

 

asti dolce- ballin on a budget

 

Who says champagne is only for special occasions? We believe that everyday is a celebration (the little things in life), or otherwise known as a “champagne campaign.” Do you know that champagne first gained it’s reputation because of it’s association with the anointment of French Kings? Europe decided to spread the message of this fab sparkling wine and it became a symbol of luxury and power. Now to the good stuff! Here is a little tip for you: pouring champagne while tilting the glass at an angle and gently sliding the liquid along the side will help you with all of those bubbles! (you can impress while your pour) If you are ready to dish out the doe then your best bet is a bottle of Moet. If you are ballin on a budget then we suggest a bottle of Asti- amazing taste for a cheap price. Also keep in mind if you want a sweet taste instead of brut look for the word “dolce” on the bottle.  Enjoy for champagne…and don’t forget to share! ;)

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.

feminine friday: healthy looking skin with rodin olio lusso

Add a comment

It’s important for women to take care of skin in order for it to age “gracefully”. According to the healthy skin bible, sunscreen must be put on every day and reapplied every so often through out the day. The most overlooked rule is definitely moisturization. It is an quick and easy step that makes a huge significant difference on the complexion of your skin.

Rodin Olio Lusso here makes oil products for the face, body, and hair. Luxurious ingrediants like jasmine, rose hip seed, sweet almond, jojoba, calendula, and many more are used in the products. Even the packaging looks luxurious and expensive.

modern monday: modern dining etiquette

Add a comment

3 important factors to good etiquette: phone, social graces, and conversation topics. Boarding school nailed proper dining etiquette into my head that sometimes my friends make fun of me for being such a goodie two shoe. However, I still think dining table etiquette is still important and relevant in 2011. My friend was just out on a date and her date would not put his phone down, such a turn off. Read this great article by Asia Tatler before going out to dinner with your significant other’s parents for the first time or going on that important lunch interview. It may seem boring but you might want to thank me after!

Who would want to use their smart phones to tell time if they’ve got a fancy, fabulous, statement piece of jewelry watch on their arm? Don’t worry, if you can’t afford Chanel, Swatch has some pretty good selections that won’t break your bank.

perfect for the winter

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?

well-dressed wednesday: bags to Fall for

Add a comment

Though spring is my favorite season of the year, I prefer dressing in sumer/fall clothing. There’s something aesthetically  pleasing about light jackets, maxi skirts, white jeans, and booties. For the fall, I’m loving the capsule bags in varsity colors (maybe because I am a rising senior in college and I am having college withdrawal symptoms already?)

feminine friday: engagement rings

Add a comment

I’ve recently been watching the CWTV’s Shedding For the Wedding show. It got me thinking about which kind of an engagement ring I’d want in the (not near) future. It’s normal to ponder these things right? Or have I been influenced by my friends who, on our senior trip, flipped through magazines in search of the perfect wedding dress. What do you think of my find (assuming Mr. Right is very wealthy)?

might hurt someone's eyes when in sun

An investment worth making? A good pair of optics or sunglasses. They are great fashion accessories that help you look sophisticated, mysterious, and smart. Take good care of your specs and they will last you years.

Yesterday I had forgotten to bring my glasses to work. My eyes were crying for help by the end of the day, they were so strained! If I had a pair of stylish Oliver peoples optics, I would probably wear it 24/7 and never have to go a day being blind at work again!

The new Singapore Airlines suites

first class seating for VVIPs

only very long legged children could kick your seat

If given a choice between a first class ticket or a luxury hotel room suit, I’d definitely go with the first class ticket, especially if it’s with Singapore Airlines. Their first class seating was voted best, placing Emirates second. Check out the perks of flying first class!

What you get for your $$: Dom Perignon and Krug champagne, Givenchy sleep suits and slippers, Ferragamo toiletries, a down duvet and oversize pillows, 23 inch LCD screen, noise cancelling headphones, and more.
