I Want – The Vita Fede Wrap Bracelet



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.

Who doesn’t need beauty tips? A fool doesn’t need beauty tips, that’s who. When I say “beauty” I don’t necessarily mean makeup; it can be about how to improve skin texture and tone, or beauty alternatives found in the refrigerator.

My favorites:

91. “Balance out your shimmer. If you’re doing a shimmery eye, do matte lips”- Raychel Wade, founder of Cheek to Chic and La Prairie’s colour ambassador

79. During summer, “Its easy to forget that feet can get sunburned. Be sure to apply sunscreen with a minimum SPF of 50 when barefoot”- Dr. Leslie Campbell, DPM.

55. If you don’t have nail polish remover, apply clear nail polish over and then wipe off. It will remove old polish.

44.”You should always go to a hair-removal specialist, where waxing, laser etc. is their main business – don’t go to a nail salon for a wax”- Cindy Barshop, Completely Bare and Bravo’s RHONYC.

35.There are always cheap, natural and effective homemade beauty recipes.

23.”Don’t be too serious: It’s only Makeup! “- Francois NARS insists you play around with new colors.

18. If you choose to use false eyelashes, remember to use the dark glue as it will blend in with the lashes.

Shades of Great: The 7 Hottest Sunglasses to Expect in Spring 2013 | Photo Gallery – Yahoo! Shine


These revamped cat-eye shades are adorable. I’m not sure I can pull it off but I would certainly take a stab at it.

Spring is just around the corner which means it’s time to take a serious look at what will be protecting our eyes from the sun’s welcome but harmful rays. I love sunglasses; they are the epitome of cool and I wear them all year-long. There are actually people walking among us that believe sunglasses should only be worn during warmer months. I refuse to acknowledge their existence. Who can deny that such a functional accessory is an absolute necessity?

Do any of these sunglasses expected to make an impact this spring move you?

While taking into account that someone, somewhere will love them, I think these are hideous. I would like to meet the person who can pull these off. 


I love sunglasses with colored lenses. These are great for spring or a tropical beach…

These are a pair of pink Chanel‘s that I once had. I had an identical pair in black. It’s a sad story. Sigh…
