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.

Add a comment

What can possibly be better than drinking beer  on the street and eating oysters all day? The Stone Street Oyster Festival is coming up next Saturday, Sept 22nd in NYC’s Financial District. The party is located on Stone Street and Hanover Square- hosted by financial district stalwarts Ulysses Folk House and Harry’s Café and Steak.

What to do on a Wednesday night? West Village it is!

Add a comment

 Fashion week does not start until tomorrow…what’s a girl to do on this mighty fine Wednesday in New York City? Let’s make it a West Village kind of night @ Windsor! Today just happens to be the opening of football season, Giants verse Cowboys…and I know what you thinking (football really?) but it’s more about the eye candy then the game. The Windsor is not your typical sports bar, it is a SUPER CUTE small spot on on west 4th street with “social sensibility” (meaning a good crowd).  Not only is the crowd and decor on point, but so is the food. So put on those skinny jeans and grab your girls after work for happy hour.

A sports bar in NYC not filled with tourists TOUCHDOWN ;) See you there xx

we love america

Now go in your closet and pull out the red, white and blue…it is going to be an AH-mazing week/weekend!

WHAT SHOULD I WEAR?

To all of my fellow dress divas- go bold! Pull pieces out of your existing wardrobe (red white or blue) and spice up with a belt and some jewelry…nautical works too!

Now that your outfit is ready, what about your nails? Go for a USA pattern! If you don’t have the time, remember you can stop at your local drug store and pick up some patriotic nail stickers! A manicure in 5 minutes.

WHAT SHOULD I BRING TO THE PARTY?

revolutionary berries! (supper easy to make)

instructions:

Melt 12 ounces of white chocolate chips in a microwave according to the package directions (make sure the container and the berries are dry; even a little moisture will alter the texture of the candy).

 One at a time, dip strawberries into the chocolate and then into blue sugar or edible glitter.

Set them to harden on waxed paper.

 Makes 35 to 45 decorated berries.

nations b-day nachos!

instructions:

Place blue corn tortilla chips on a foil-covered baking sheet coated with cooking spray.

Sprinkle the chips with shredded Monterey Jack, then bake at 350° for 5 to 7 minutes.

Top the nachos with salsa and sour cream.

who doesn’t like JELLO SHOTS?

instructions:

Cut an Orange (or lemon or lime) in HALF and gut it.

Mix the jello shot (1 cup hot water, box jello, 1 cup various liquors)

Stir till disolved

Add the jello mix to the half shell and refrig for 3 hours or more.

Once solid, slice and serve! emomum

WHAT DO TO?! (FOR ALL MY LAST MINUTE LADIES)

NYC

Macy’s fireworks

Macy’s will have fireworks being released from four barges in the Hudson River. It’s the 36th Annual Macy’s Fireworks display and this year’s theme is Ignite the Night. This year’s fireworks soundtrack has been dubbed “America’s Mixtape,” and will feature both patriotic and pop songs that will be performed in sync with the fireworks. The music can be heard on 1010 WINS and Fresh 102.7. The night’s line-up will include performances by Katy Perry and Kenny Chesney. If you’re not in the area, NBC will broadcast the fireworks live beginning at 9 p.m. EST. The best places to see the fireworks will be along the West Side Highway on the north-bound lanes and 12th Avenue between 14th and 59th Streets; some side streets between 11th and 12th Avenues and at Pier 84 (access from 44th Street).

HAMPTON

Tommy Hilfiger East Hampton Summer Kick-Off Event

This notoriously All-American brand celebrates our fine country with a soiree at the gorgeous space above their East Hamptons store.  Expect to see your favorite employees from all the East Hampton stores in attendance…maybe even get a glimpse of Mr. Hilfiger himself!

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)

trendy tips tuesday: Get Inspiried & in the Holiday Spirit- Christmas Windows are Here!

Add a comment

Entrance of Barney's NYC-Leave it to Lady Gaga to turn Christmas into a holiday for her Little Monsters.

 

Macy's Herald Square was all about charities this year- their theme was "make a wish"

 

it's all about the "snow & bubbles" this year for the famous Saks Fifth Avenue window

 

Bloomingdales' windows showcase designs that were used on previous years holiday shopping bags.

 

"What is Christmas made of?" Lord & Taylor teamed up with children in nearby schools and rescue shelters to and featured their drawings as inspiration for this years holiday windows.

"fantasy world" pretty much sums up Bergdorf's windows this year. It can be described as "Narnia" meets "Under the Sea".

 

I hope we inspired you to check out this amazing holiday windows! It only happens once a year- so bundle up, grab some hot cocoa, and get on it! Here is a walking map of the windows, have fun! xo

The question of the night that's got everyone buzzing- did j.Lo copy britney spears' nude bodysuit look? My answer= NO! This fashion diva looks fab & is working it (even after two kids)

 

Taylor stole the show! (with awards & her fashion) This 21-year-old country superstar won artist of the year, the ceremony's highest accolade. You go girl!

 

HATE IT! I know your trying to make a rocker girl statement- but the shoes + terrible hair was not flattering to say the least. (baby your the firework tonight...literally)

 

All grown up! Power couple of the year looked "old hollywood glam" last night and we LOVE IT.

 

The "black barbie" looks like a green balloon! I love you nicki and at least you take risks...but your stylist should be fired.

 

WOW! This 90's feminist hippie cleans up beautifuly. Simple, elegant, and figure flattering...we LOVT IT!

 

this genie does NOT fit in the bottle anymore! Cristina we love you & know that you are a mom now- we are ALL for curvy figures but girl WEAR SOMETHING THAT FITS! One wrong move & you'll be pulling a janet jackson.

 

 

Sienna’s Stories : “Steven P. Jobs, a visionary.”

Add a comment

Our lives are forever changed & enriched by the products continually produced by Apple.  Of course Apple products may not belong on the same pedestal of water, oxygen and other nutrients necessary for life…  Nonetheless, in my mind they fall to a very close second or third. (Not to mention the fact that I received an iMac in grade school which I then to my delight upgraded several times.)

Steve Jobs has changed the world of technology forever. Ten years ago, in October of 2001, Apple introduced the iPod. The concept of a music player had been done before. Technical associates, salespeople and research analysts all had commented that the price Apple decided on was the worst decision ever and that it would go, nowhere. Two years later the same comments were made about the iTunes music store and paying for virtual music files. As we all know now, not only were these successful ventures, but the predecessors for so much more (including for many other copycats).

Many tend to overlook his past projects, or were not around when these events took place. Steve pioneered the process of placing advanced forms of technology into the hands of people to use in their everyday lives. Apple may not be branded a PC but it was the first and most user friendly “personal computer” to ever exist. Apple continued to first develop their line of desktop computers with innovative varieties then turned to laptop computers, to handheld. However, that is too simple a statement for the transformation all these ventures had on the world of technology. (Pirates of Silicon Valley, a great story of Steve Jobs & Bill Gates).

 

As he leaves us, he managed to impress us once more with the boundaries he breaks with each update. Many do not realize how revolutionary the soon to be released iPhone update is.  Just as in the past, people spoke negatively of the possibility for the iPhone to possess Siri. Which according to Apple, is “the intelligent assistant that’s there to help. Just ask. Ask Siri to make calls, send texts, set reminders and more”. The Siri will instruct your iPhone to perform tasks with just the sound of your voice. THIS WILL MAKE LIFE SO EASY! (I thought he had already made it as easy for us as he was capable of, especially with walking  GPS apps!)

It takes people like Steve Jobs to really go in and change things, to make things happen. Not to worry, he has built a great team of successors, I still expect great things from Apple.

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: 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!

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
