Best Looks of Fashion Bloggers in September

Posted on October 14, 2016 by sergio gutierrez

It's gradually getting colder on the streets as we move into the fall season. During the month of September we've had to update our wardrobe with warm clothes, leaving the summery looks behind.

We wanted to review the best looks of fashion bloggers during the month of September, where they show us how they adapt to the new season. Don't miss it!

1. Wendy Nguyen: Funnel neck sweatshirt & Tall boots


During the past month, Wendy showed us this fantastic look on her blog, with classic colors, perfect for this time of year.

We'd like to highlight the long boots, which we've seen in numerous fashion bloggers' looks this past month, so it seems they're a strong trend this season.

2. Extra Petite: Off Shoulder Sweater (Dress) Season


We love Jean, an adorable fashion blogger from Boston. She's less than five foot tall, so her blog is geared towards short people.

We like the look we've chosen for its originality: use a long sweater as a dress, and create this fabulous look. When it comes to dressing, creative thinking can achieve extraordinary results.

We can see brown tones in accessories, perfect for moving into the fall season.

3. Gal Meets Glam: Jumping into Fall


As we mentioned in a previous article, vintage style is a trend this fall, as Julia shows us in her blog.

In this fantastic look we've chosen, we can see a pretty vintage-style blouse, in classic tones, which certainly adds elegance to the whole outfit, but a more modern touch is also added with the torn jeans.

The leopard jacket adds a distinguishing touch to the whole look.

4. Unfancy: Fall Outfit


Caroline exhibits a beautiful look with her favorite palette of colors: Cognac brown, smokey black, and shades of white. The same one she uses to decorate her house.

Undoubtedly, a simple and elegant look, perfect for every day, suitable to get us into the swing of fall. And we love the open boots.

5. Wish Wish Wish: Brand New Basics


Finally, Carrie shows us that you needn't spend a fortune to achieve a good look this season.

Her modern lookis made up, mainly, of garments she's managed to pick up in the GAP outlet: a pair of girlfriend jeans, a plain white tee and a knit.

We can see how Carrie, as do many fashion bloggers, opts for the classic colors of this time of year.

 

And now it's up to you to decide: Which is your favorite look?

We hope this has given you some inspiration for updating your wardrobe this season. Don't forget to check out our shop online to pick up those garments which will finish off your look, and take advantage of the 20% discount in our Leather Bags collection (use the code SALE20LEBA) or enjoy a 20% discount in our SG Apparel collection (use the code SALE20SGAP), both are valid until November 20, 2016.

7 Trends for Fall 2016

Posted on September 12, 2016 by sergio gutierrez

Autumn is almost here, so it's time to renew our wardrobes to be up to date with the latest fashion.

Are you ready for the new season? Discover the seven trends for this fall that you cannot miss.

1. Military-style coats


Military-style jackets and coats with gold buttons are one of the big trends for this fall.

In Nordstrom you can find this coat that we really liked, it's available in two different colors, it's hard to say which is the nicest!


The best of all? It will match perfectly with our special-edition bracelet with an antique-gold finish.

2. Vintage Style


In general, everything that was fashionable in the '70s is back in fashion this fall, so if you still have all your clothes from back then, you're in luck.

There are also specialized shops which only sell vintage-style clothing. So whatever you buy is guaranteed to be in fashion!

One of the shops we like is ModCloth, where you can find this true '70s-style blouse.


We recommend you take a look at our handmade Italian leather bag, available in several colors, to complete the look.

3. Boho dress


The unmistakable boho dress is one of the trends which is coming back strong for this fall. It began to be seen on the streets this summer, but it will be more prominent now during the fall.

We really liked this one we saw in Lulus,but they have many more designs we love too, so we recommend you take a look at their shop online.


You can combine it with these earrings, with an antique-silver finish, from our special-edition collection.

4. Neckerchief


Another old fashion which sees a comeback this fall is the neckerchief. If you are one of those who always wanted to recreate the style of the movie Grease, this season you're in luck.

In Seasalt Cornwall, we found this neckerchief, available in several colors.


You can combine it with one of our special-edition rings.

5. Ballerina Style


Of all the trends for this season, this is one of our favorites.

This fall, tulle skirts, bodies and ballet-flats with bows will be in fashion... Everything that recreates the light and elegant style of ballerinas.

In Asos we found this pretty tulle skirtwhich we immediately fell in love with, it was love at first sight.


To complete this delicate look, nothing better than our most characteristic bracelet, with its fantastic silky feel, as with all our jewelry.

6. Cropped pants


These trousers have been fashionable before, and they will continue to be fashionable this fall.

In Nordstrom, as well as the military coat we showed you at the beginning of this article, we also found these trousers which are perfect for keeping up with fashion this fall.


You can combine them with our limited-edition bracelet with a beautiful Onyx stone.

7. Mustard color


And finally, the color par excellance for this fall: mustard.

An intense color with a strong comeback this season. If you want to be fashionable, you have to get a garment this color as soon as you can.

In GoJane we saw this pretty mustard-colored dress, a must-have in your wardrobe!


To complete the look we recommend this elegant bracelet with an antique-silver finish from our special-edition collection.

 

We hope you've taken good note of the trends for this fall.

The meaning of gemstones

Posted on September 01, 2016 by sergio gutierrez

Precious stones have been used since antiquity to adorn jewelry, not only for their immense beauty, but also for their given properties in popular culture.

We will explain the meaning of seven gemstones which are most valued by humanity, so that you can learn about the history which is hidden behind each one.

1. Onyx


There are several tones of this stone, but undoubtedly the most striking is the one which is such an intense black that it is hard to take your eyes off it.

It has always been very precious and used, above all, in jewelry. For example, it was used by the Romans to make earrings and brooches, and they added the signs of the zodiac to them, to use them as talismans.

Popular culture describes it as a stone which can attract and dissolve negative vibrations, thus protecting the wearer and transmitting seriousness, humility and confidence.

Leaving legends to one side, the onyx is undoubtedly a superb stone which brings elegance to any look, which is why we invite you to discover our limited-edition bracelet in antique silver with onyx, and the matching ring.

2. Emerald


The emerald, with its characteristic green tone, has always been extremely sought-after, given its rarity.

From the Egyptians, to the Mayans, up to the present day, it has always been one of the stones most valued by humanity.

Thus, it is no wonder that you can admire those most famous pieces in some of the most important museums in the world. For example, amongst the collection of the American Museum of Natural History in New York there is a valuable cup made completely of emerald, placed right next to “Patricia”, one of the largest Colombian crystals in the world.

Commonly known as the stone of love, the emerald is also the gemstone par excellence used to commemorate the 20th and the 35th wedding anniversary in some countries.

Amongst our collection of limited-edition jewelry, which can only be bought online, is this beautiful bracelet adorned with a unique emerald which will undoubtedly attract your attention.

3. Alexandrite

Alexandrite is an extremely rare precious stone which is fascinating to look at, given that the color of it depends on the light and the angle at which it is looked at.

It is a dark green gemstone, but it changes color in daylight, having a reddish purple glimmer, as seen clearly in the photograph.

It was discovered during the mid-nineteenth century, immediately becoming an essential gemstone in Russian jewelry.

However, there's no need to go there to enjoy it. You can find this wonderful bracelet with an antique-silver finish and a beautiful alexandrite gemstone in our shop online.

If you like it, don't think twice, because it is a limited edition.

4. Amethyst

Amethyst, with its beautiful violet colors, is undoubtedly one of the most treasured precious stones, along with diamond, ruby, sapphire and emerald which was mentioned previously.

The most perfect ones have been cut for jewelry for thousands of years, as the Egyptians did, and the rest are used in works of art.

It can be found in a variety of hues, which is why there are several jeweler's terms to describe it. The “Rose de France” variety is defined by its light lilac color, as pretty as that of the gemstone seen in the photograph, whilst the “Siberian” variety describes those which have a deep violet color with red hues.

It is commonly known as the stone of peace and love. Very often, couples exchange them as a symbol to strengthen their commitment. Many families also have one at home, as it is believed to have the ability to purify, clarify and harmonize the energy within the home, thus bringing happiness.

Amongst our collection, we have a magnificent necklace with an amethyst and an antique-silver finish, and with the matching bracelet, both are perfect to stand out from the crowd.

5. Malachite

Malachite has an intense dark green color, immediately taking our thoughts to thick forests.

It is one of the most ancient precious stones, used by different civilizations throughout history. It was worshipped by the Egyptian pharaohs, who almost always used it in their clothes and headdresses, since they thought it would help them to rule wisely. Today, for example, it is used as the base of the FIFA World Cup Trophy.

In popular culture, malachite is known as “the stone of transformation”, it is believed to have the power to help us see what we do not want to see, to guide us in times of change, to encourage us to take risks, to release inhibitions and express what we feel.

In our limited-edition collection we have a magnificent necklace, with an antique-silver finish, adorned with a magnificent malachite, without a doubt it would be worthy of Cleopatra herself.

6. Turquoise


This stone, scarce and valuable, has been treasured for thousands of years due to its characteristic color, which is usually blue-green.

It is a delicate gemstone, which is usually extracted by hand, and comes in a variety of colors, ranging from white to dark blue, including sky-blue, blue-green and yellow-green.

It has been used in all kinds of jewelry from the beginning of civilization, adorning the Egyptians, the Incas, the Aztecs and the Persians, among others. Many are believed to have the power to protect its wearer, attract fortune and happiness and stimulate beauty.

In some regions, it is used in love magic, giving it to the loved one with the aim of achieving harmony. It is said that if the love of the person who was given the stone fades, its color will also fade.

If you would like to wear jewelry with a stone as precious as turquoise, amongst our limited edition you can find this beautiful bracelet and necklace set.

7. Lapis lazuli

Lapis lazuli is an intense, deep blue gemstone, making it one of the most beautiful in the world; hence, it is widely used in jewelry.

It was much valued by the Egyptians, who used it to adorn the sacred scarabs and the funeral masks, since its color was considered a symbol of purity, health, luck and nobility.

Since the Middle Ages, it was made into powder to produce a characteristic ultramarine color, used for dying fabrics or used by the most illustrious painters, such as Leonardo da Vinci, being so valuable that it came to be called "blue gold".

Lapis lazuli has always been appreciated by numerous nations: For example, the kings of France adored this stone, which is why the treasure of the French crown has magnificent objects that include it, and today, it is the national stone of Chile.

Even among those who believe that Atlantis existed, there is the rumor that it rose thanks to lapis lazuli.

In popular culture, it is considered to be the stone of truth and friendship, and it is believed to foster harmony in relationships.

Amongst our limited-edition jewelry you can find this beautiful necklace adorned with a magnificent lapis lazuli, perfect for wearing day-to-day.
