Accessories can improve (almost!) every look

I was flying back from France to Miami on a “close-to-ten” hours non-stop fly… my only thought while enjoying first class pampering service was to catch up on email, and updating my blog… after fighting the French cab driver, security at the airport, and an early check in, I finally sat on my well deserved seat…
After being surrounded with all the glamour that a festival like Cannes can bring you, with designer dresses and the best accessories from all around the world …

There she was, the comfortable cougar first-class-traveler with her LV handbag/carryon combo, 100 carat ring, votox lips, multi plastic surgery, hair extensions and bling bling everywhere… you get the picture… and yes… pink sweatpants!!!

I have to tell you, I know I always say and strongly believe that accessories have the power to change any look, to transform the most common attire into an iconic statement of fashion… well now I have to say: accessories can improve “ALMOST” every look… if there is a look accessories can’t help is the “confi-sweatpant (juicy sign in the butt)” look…

I’m sorry but there’s nothing you can do about it… there is nothing any accessory can do to help… there’s no project runway challenge, no emergency make-over or fashion police who can save this from disaster…

There is no fashion necklace, pair of earrings, hat, bag, bracelet or watch that can help this look… Nothing! Nada! Zero!
So, I now stand corrected… Accessories can improve (almost) every look… and unless you have a closet full of sweatpants, enjoy accessorizing…

The best of Cannes is about to begin!

So, what makes the Cannes Festival a special event???

I began to put together a list of things which to me make Cannes one of (if not the) most glamorous event(s) of the year!!
  • Amazing Cultural Mix: Allow me to start by saying when you mix such a variety of cultures you end up with a perfect combination of amazing fashion. Artists from all around the world get together to showcase their own work but also to admire the work of other great actors, actresses, directors and producers… no matter the language and the nationality, they’re ALL there… by the way did you know that this year’s guest of honor is the Egyptian film culture? I am pretty sure we’re going to see a great display of dresses, jewelry, accessories and much more all together in one place.

  • Great films: I can’t talk about Cannes Festival and without mentioning it’s movies, documentaries, short and long that get to be displayed for the first time… all in one place...

  • This isn’t Hollywood: No Steve-O’s or Flavor Flav … nope… this is an exclusive event, only the best more gifted artist are invited there, so expect beautiful people, with class, glamour, and fashion sense… ready to have some fun

  • A Beautiful City: As a final touch I have to include the city, Cannes itself, as a paramount element adding the ribbon to a perfect event; it’s simply a beautiful place….

Summing it all up, get ready to enjoy an extraordinary mixed of cultures, selected and exclusive invitees with great sense of fashion, gathered to admired some of the best in cinematography under the beautiful Cannes sky.
Don’t miss it and enjoy!

All Moms are beautiful

We are only a couple of days away from Mother’s Day and what a perfect day to show MOM how much we love her and care for how she feels and looks. So, I found this day as the perfect occasion to give her something unique, something that she will always remembered as your Mother’s Day gift and the most important….that she will feel beautiful, chic, elegant and sophisticated, with a little edge… because we believe All Moms Are Beautiful.
I decided to put together a few pieces that I strongly believe make the perfect gift for Mom and no matters what her style is, she will feel pretty, beautiful… because each piece embraces different personalities and styles.
I consider myself a bit exotic; therefore the first piece I want to show is all about exotic, tribal and artisan jewelry. This is a Pajaro Limon (pah’-hah-ro le-mone’) beautiful bracelet made in brass and cooper that meshed together form the shape of a surreal parrot and embracing a tree leave. [http://tiny.cc/3aa3e]

My second suggestion for Mother’s Day gift is a Liquid Metal bracelet; more edgy, modern, but red-carpet ready designed by famous and friend of the MetalReaction family Sergio Gutierrez; as you may know many celebrities including beautiful Annete Bening have worn Sergio’s Liquid Metal designs.

Next I want to introduce you to Lattimo, a glassy collection full of colors and shapes. This necklace, made in chain and adorned with five colored glass jewelry pieces is perfect for and everyday mom who wants to feel young and happy [http://tiny.cc/krcyr].

And my last suggestion comes from NOI; all the pieces on this collection are made in pure South American silver. I personally love these earrings; the shape is very unique and chic… they are perfect for any accessorizing any look and feel pretty in any occasion [http://tiny.cc/ts2a6].

Happy Mother’s Day to all the moms out there!! We believe All Moms are beautiful
