I recently discovered Renata & Jonathan Jewelry and Art through Twitter and we tweet from time to time. Not only are they super nice but their collection is absolutely amazing! If you’re big fan of  vintage and fairy-tale then you’re gonna LOVE Renata’s imagination and creativity. She uses handmade recycled bronze and silver to make them look eclectic and unique. As for the artwork, that’s when Jonathan comes along, He specializes in original art prints, custom shop and blog banners.

Here are some of the items that I love, for more you can always go to their shopping site!

Renata and Jonathan Miniature Terrarium Pendant Necklace

This Miniature Terrarium Dome pendant necklace is a love at first sight. I absolutely amazed by the great details on this sterling silver necklace. US$75.

Renata and Jonathan Herkimer Diamond Necklace

If you wanna go a little bit fancy, then you will love this gorgeous Herkimer Diamond necklace. So sweet and magical, just like Renata said, it brings you back to your childhood dreams! US$125.

Renata and Jonathan Life's a Carousel Pendant Necklace

When I was a kid, I love the carousel very much, actually I still do now. This classic and vintage looking necklace certainly reminds me of my younger years. It’s too bad that we hardly have carnivals now, it would be great to ride the carousel again. This lovely necklace is made of brass and I totally dig the look. US$34.

Renata and Jonathan Isabelle's Flower

What a cutie, don’t you think? This adorable 7 x 5.557 inch print is painted digitally from a hand drawn sketch and photographic textures. I love the innocent and mischievous look on this pretty little Isabelle. US$32.

Renata and Jonathan Madonna Print

Now we go for a more “serious” one, the Madonna Drawing Study of Raphael. This beautiful print is sketched by hand in graphite then scanned and painted in Adobe Photoshop. The image area is 10 x 8 and then printed via inkjet on archival Hahnemuhle water color paper (8 1/2 x 11). US$28.

Renata and Jonathan Rose Red Embrace Print

Crave for something more romantic and emotive? I present you this lovely Rose Red Embrace that’s originally created in watercolor and now is printed on 7 x 7 fine archival watercolor paper. What an art! US$32.

I hope you enjoy their fabulous arts as much as I do!

What Does Your Lingerie Say About You?

Filed under Lingerie 

by Vie on September 28, 2011

It is inevitable that lingerie has become part of our necessity and I must say wearing lingerie to bed is a luxury to me. Although I normally sleep with my hubby’s t-shirts or tanks but there are times when I wanna feel sexy and pretty in lingerie. With so many types of lingerie out there, it’s always fun to choose which suits us the most and this inspires me to write about it. I had good time writing about the relation between bags and personalities and I’m glad my readers and friends are enjoying that fun post. Again, I’m no psychologist, this is purely my personal opinion! : )

Babydolls Playful and Sweet

1. Victoria’s Secret Satin Babydoll. US$48. 2. Victoria’s Secret Chiffon and Lace Babydoll. US$48.

Most of my girlfriends who choose baby doll say that the reason why they prefer this particular style is because they can move freely in it and it’s usually very comfortable. And not just that, baby dolls are often sweet looking and tend to give you that playful vibe. I don’t know about you but baby doll is on top of my list.

Chemise Sexy and Flirty
1. Jezebel Red Chemise. US$34. 2. Elle Macpherson Obsidian Lace Chemise. US$125.

Chemise is my second choice for nightwear. I always feel sexy and alluring whenever I put my chemise on. Maybe because the fact that it’s figure flattering that makes it so flirty. Choose cotton for comfort and other material for a sexy show!

Camisoles Laid Back and Girly
1. Juicy Couture Ruffle and Lace Cami. US$48. 2. 3.1 Philip Lim Silk Camisole. US$165.

There’s nothing more relaxing and feminine than a camisole. Good thing about this nighty top is that not only can you wear them indoor but also outdoor. For extra girly touch, go for a silky one. They’re so pretty and totally comfortable. You can never go wrong with shiny and cozy cami.

Corset Elegant and Confident
1. Charlotte Russe Ribbon Trim Corset. US$22.50. 2. Stella McCartney Satin Corset. US$340.

Corset has been around for many many years and the reason why women love this underwear is for the fact that it tightens up your body right and enhances your curves. For that reason I decided to call you corset ladies, elegant and confident. Elegant for the designs that usually revolve around satin and lace, confident because you know you will definitely look hot in it ; )

Teddy Daring and Seductive
1. Victoria’s Secret Floral Lace Teddy. US$30. 2. Arianne Catherine Teddy. US$70.

Teddies are my least favorite lingerie to wear, but that doesn’t mean I don’t like looking at them. As a matter of fact, I’ve found so many cute and daring ones. For those who choose teddies to be their sleepwear, I’d say you must be pretty daring and seductive. This is definitely another good way to wrap your body and to tease at the same time.

So what do you think ladies? What type of lingerie are you? : )

Gianfranco Ferre Spring 2012 Ready to Wear

Unlike the others, Gianfranco Ferre plays with more subtle colors such as white, black, a little bit of magenta and purple. I think the collection is a bit more minimalist and futuristic. I’m loving this super sexy long dress, it is very “outer space” and at the same time totally fashionable. Get more scoop of Gianfranco here.

Bags and Personalities: Which One are You?

Filed under Bags 

by Vie on September 23, 2011

People often ask whether I’m more of a bag or shoe person. I always find this hard to answer because as a girl, I like them both! However, if you make me choose, I’d say bags. Judging from the amount of handbags I have compare to shoes, I guess I’m more of a bag kinda girl. Lucky for me, most of my girlfriends here share the same interest. Out of curiosity, I recently started to observe and to connect between bag styles and personalities. After some careful considerations, I have come up with my own conclusions. Now since I am no psychologist, this article is made based on my personal assessment and for the sake of having fun. Hope you find this enjoyable : )

Tote Fun and Casual

1. Juicy Couture Gen Y Bow Tote. US$88. 2. Michael Kors Leather Tote. US$198. 3. Kate Spade Fox Chapel Tote. US$295.

I realized that most of my bags are totes and I think the reason why I love them is because not only are they spacious but also fun and casual. Whether they’re made out of leather, canvas or polyester, they tend to give me a laid-back feeling. Tote works best when you often find yourself in a hurry (I find myself shoving stuff inside my tote all the time because I don’t have time to carefully organize everything, especially when I’m shopping ; ) Oh, tote is also a perfect and stylish way to carry your laptop. I do this all the time, too : )

Satchels Trendy and Fashionable

1. Steve Madden Bdanity Satchel. US$88. 2. Elliott Lucca Roma Satchel. US$198. 3. Guess Groovy Box Satchel. US$118.

The secret lies on short handles that allow you to carry them firmly. Some prefer to circle it around their arm for extra presentation, making it a perfect arm-candy. Another thing about satchel is that most of them are completed with extra shoulder strap, in case your hand is tired from carrying all those essentials. This is my second favorite when it comes to handbag style. Plus, satchel is not just for women, men can get away with this, too!

Clutch Practical and Efficient

1. Fossil Emory Clutch. US$65. 2. Rebecca Minkoff Rocker Clutch. US$330. 3. Topshop Padded Heart Clutch. US$45.

The reason why I think clutch = practical and efficient is because people who carry clutch as their daily bag would pack only the essentials such as purse, phone and lipgloss. Very practical and totally efficient. I like going out with clutch from time to time because tit’s less hassle and I feel more free.

Hobo Stylish and Relaxed

1. Guess Fallon Hobo. US$125. 2. The Sak Olema Hobo. US$89.99. 3. Betsey Johnson Acid Rose Hobo. US$148.

Hobos have become one of the most popular handbag styles. 2 handles for 2 styles, carry them in your hand or just hang them on your shoulder. Either way, you would still look stylish and relaxed because they go with almost all types of clothes. Most of my girlfriends prefer hobos for these 2 particular reasons; easy-styling and relaxing.

Crossbody Bags Sporty and Sassy

1. Calvin Klein Exclusive Bag. US$57.99. 2. Brighton Jet Set Bag. US$210. 3. Marc Jacobs Lizzie Bag. US$258.

There’s nothing more sporty and sassy than having a cross body bag. This is my choice whenever I’m traveling, I don’t have to worry about having too much stuff in my hands or having pain on my shoulder because this type of bag distributes the weight evenly to your body. I suggest you to choose this when you plan on having a trip or adventurous travel! You’ll find it much more easier to move.

So what do you think? Am I close? Let me know your thoughts! I hope you have fun reading it as much as I did writing it : )
