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.

Sometimes a girl just has to kick off those pumps and get real, get comfy, get into some flats! I know what your thinking- flats are not sexy at all…FALSE. If you know the right look that can compliment your outfit, we promise you will still feel like the sex kitten you are meant to be. There are flats for just about any look: formal, casual, and mostly importantly for this time of the year- cold weather. Take full advantage of wearing those designer flat boots, oxfords, and loafers. Sienna Ray has put together the ultimate guide for killer flats. Next time you are ready to walk out the door in pain from your pumps…just remember you have options. xo

fab finds friday: Hidden Treasures @ “The Market” NYC

Add a comment

shopping for a bargain

 

inside NYC's "the market"

 

These days everyone is searching for a good bargain, “the market” NYC is the perfect weekend stop to shop. Located on a block that is pretty quiet during the week, St. Patrick’s Youth Center’s gymnasium at 268 Mulberry Street is transformed into a wonderland of independent fashion every Saturday and Sunday. This trendy indoor market has become the showcase for some of the city’s best independent designers setting up tables and racks of cutting edge handmade clothing, jewelry, handbags, hats and more recently, artwork. Some designers have even opened up their own boutiques but they still remain loyal by selling each weekend at the Market. The Market attracts a mixed crowd of shoppers each weekend, including tourists from around the world, locals looking for the next big fashion trend, and there’s the occasional celebrity sighting too – Leonardo DiCaprio (incognito) has been seen picking up a t-shirt or two, Debra Messing likes the jewelry, and Sienna Miller. You never know what you’re going to find!

wish list wednesday: Loving These Louboutin Flats!

Add a comment

fabulous "fred clous" flats

 

I think that almost every fashionable women in the world has a new pair of “loubs” on their wish list. Christian Louboutin’s are usually known for their sky high stilettos with  signature red bottoms- but these babies have stole my heart (and I’m sure yours too)! These fabulous “fred clous” flats are a bit more delicate then last seasons “fred flat spikes”, yet remain supper edgy at the same time. Of course there is one tiny catch to these puppies…their price tag at hefty $1, 295! (hey if you got it flaunt it)

 

oxford studded flats by urbanog $22.20

 

primlico studded brogues from topshop $180

 

"stud-ies" show flats from modcloth $44.95

If you are balling on a budget try these options. They might not be Christian Louboutins BUT they are still supper trendy and have the same style aesthetic. (plus way more affordable)

Sienna’s Stories : The Four Seasons

Add a comment

This morning, opening my curtains I was greeted by numerous rays of sunshine. However, stepping out of the front door I was welcomed with the crisp bite of Mother Nature, FALL IS UPON US!

I look forward to this day, a lover of all seasons; I tend to play favorites with Fall. As this weather approaches we all come to find that our outerwear and accessories bear more importance to us than the underneath. Bring on the layers, bring on the boots, and bring on the soup!

There are countless symbols that Summer is over & Fall is upon us. I know for some it hits earlier during annual Labor Day celebrations, ironically a day typically paired with pouring rain and not a single ray of sunshine. For others, it is when Starbucks brings back the pumpkin spice latte or endless sales as stores make room for previews of Winter Collections. For me, Fall creeps up, but has not fully arrived until that first perfect day dictated solely by mother nature.

Which is why I am so excited to dust off my fall wardrobe for what I hope will be a full week of Fall. One pair of boots I am most looking forward to debuting is the Banana Republic “Ryder Rainboot”. The perfect choice when the weather will most assuredly be unpredictable but it is important to look polished, work appropriate, while still battling the bad weather.

Banana Republic, Rainboot, Riding Boots, Cold Weather

The past couple weeks I pulled on boots with tall socks only to end up sweating by the afternoon. The next day I opted for my trademark trench and rain boots, which I ended up carrying around instead of wearing. I was a little too eager to start the Fall season. Good news is, I have reusable bags stored everywhere for these kind of situations (thank you multiple Anthropologie purchases).

So, as I finally reopen the Fall section of my “Great Food Fast” Martha Stewart cookbook I will share my favorite cold weather soup with you! What do you look forward to most about the change of seasons? Besides an excuse for soup every day, the change of seasons for me marks an excuse for a new pair of boots, or several.

Sienna Ray xx

 

Pureed Butternut Squash Soup (adapted from FE “Great Food Fast”)

Serves 4 – Prep Time: 25 minutes – Total Time: 45 minutes

butternut squash soup, martha stewart, food everyday, seasonal soup, great food fast

Pureed Butternut Squash Soup

  • 2 Tbsp. Butter
  • 1 Small Onion, chopped
  • 1 piece (2 in) peeled fresh ginger, chopped
  • 1 garlic clove, chopped
  • 2 ¾ pounds small butternut squash, peeled, seeds removed, and flesh cut into ¾-inch cubes
  • ¼ cup fresh orange juice ( I have been known to add more depending on the taste, especially if I am serving it cold)
  • Coarse salt and fresh ground pepper

1. Melt the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook the onion until fragrant (about 2 minutes). Add the ginger, garlic and squash to the saucepan. Stir occasionally for 6-8 minutes. Then stir in 4 cups of water. Bring entire mixture to a boil; then reduce the heat. Simmer until the squash is tender, about 20 minutes.

2. Puree the soup in two separate batches. Stir in the orange juice (again to taste) and 1tsp or so of salt. Serve hot with pepper if desired!

Tip: When blending hot foods, allow the heat to escape to prevent spattering. Remove the cap from the hole of the blender’s lid and cover the hole with a dishtowel while blending.

modern monday: adjustable heels-choosing comfort or fashion

steps to converting heels to flats

changing from heels to flats in a few easy steps

 

patent leater adjustable heels

black patent leather-great for work

 

black strappy heels

black "mariella" strappy heels

 

What an amazing concept from shoe-company Camileon Heels …wish I have thought of this! How many times have you caught yourself running to catch the subway or trying to haul a cab in your stilettos? This adjustable shoe gives you the option to convert your heel to a flat in a few simple steps.

The main question we must ask ourselves as trendsetters simply comes down to this…are we choosing comfort or fashion? Even though this is one Ah-mazing idea, Camileon Heels does not offer a large variety of fashionable styles and materials for their shoes. Are these adjustable shoes really going to give the same affect as our fabulous designer 5inchers? I think not, go big or go home. The company is dedicated to improving design, fit, and comfort as they move forward.  I will definitely keep an on Camileon Heels to see how they progress into fashion “must-haves”.

To test these out for yourself, head to the Camileon Heels website.

talent tuesday: ballet flats from toms shoes

We’re all a fan of being comfortable and looking fabulous at the same time. Toms brand has definitely mastered the art of combining both. Their first collection of ballet flats are set to be released spring 2012. They are to be sold at an upscale  line at Neiman Marcus for about $125, and a core collection for other retailers, which will retail between $74 and $79. Here are pictures of the already- coveted shoes.

found: NEW designer west village boutique

As I was strolling down the sunny streets of the Manhattan’s West Village, the window display at this trendy boutique stopped me in my tracks! It was first the Brasilian melissa shoes that caught my eye, then realized the entire store was full of very hard-to-find international designers for both, men and women.  The fresh environment & chats with the Italian owner left me energized for the rest of my evening!

(the melissa shoes are in the back...)

 

Selection of designers available at Nida include: Jamin Puech, Szen, Traits, and Maloles.
