Twice this week I have zoned in on someone’s jewelry and the brand was Vita Fede, a brand I had never paid that much attention to. The jewelry in question was the leather and chain wrap bracelet, and I thought it was stunning and had an earthy elegance about it. Upon further investigation, I discovered I was drooling over the Capri 5, which wraps around the wrist five times. There are two more models, the Facino, which wraps three times, and the Monaco wraps twice.
The edgy wraps are made of curb chain made of rose gold, sterling silver, and gun metal nestled on top of supple lamb leather in a variety of colors. The magnetic or snap closure allows the addition of more bracelets to build on. The effect is a casual cool that works whether you’re working or playing.
I may not have been paying attention, but high-end fashion magazines and celebrities certainly have. Vita Fede jewelry consistently pops up in editorial fashion shoots, and on celebrities like Halle Berry, Jessica Biel, and Anne Hathaway, who are fans of the wrap bracelets.
The creative force behind the Italian jewelry line is Cynthia Sakai, who is inspired by the universal appeal of art and architecture. The craftsmanship shows an artistic sense of Asian, American, and European influences that have made the luxury brand so universally appealing.
“Born in LA, made in Italy, inspired by the world”
The Monaco is bigger and bolder but not louder. It makes a statement with just a hint of intimidation. You can see the rest of the Vita Fede Wrap Bracelet collections at Intermixonline.com.
I created StylEnigma in 2014 to celebrate the beauty of individuality and creative personal expression. I love the idea of being a canvas and expressing myself by transforming into the embodiment of my mood or the mood I want to be in. I am fascinated by different beauty and style standards, and fashion instinctively incorporates both. I’ve written for decades and use writing as a form of education, but I haven’t had the time or mental capacity to dedicate to my project for a long time and I’m anxious to get back to creating content about the beauty of individuality.
I’ve never been into cliques or trends because I’ve always believed that personal style supersedes trends. I’ve never been a follower or stressed about being liked because I learned at an early age that you’ll never please everyone, so you might as well be yourself. Of course, that doesn’t come without its challenges. We should celebrate uniqueness more.
I love dark colors like black and midnight blue. I own so much black clothing I’ve been accused of being in a perpetual state of mourning. I love nail art; in fact, I started this blog because of a Nailasaurus nail art post, and before that, I owned a nail and skincare salon. I have a major collection of nail art images I have never posted, which is shameful. However, I’m going to rectify that character flaw by sharing my nail art journey.
As a lupus patient, I am also learning how to make ADHD work for me (a factor in post shortages) and it is challenging. I am also learning how to create and edit videos, using Vine product reviews as the testing ground.
Thanks for hanging in there with me,
