"Extra-Special" Jewelry Trend

Fashion & StylePosted by Gaetana Tuesday, January 16 2018 09:31AM
A lot of jewelry trends are stating dainty layered pieces are the style to lookout for but if you follow fashion and trends then you'll know there's one trend that all the fashion girls are wearing. It started popping up last fall and no one predicted it would be a major look. It's been dubbed as the "extra-special" by shopping destination Net-a-Porter. What's "extra-special"? In plain English, it's earrings that stand out from the rest. In shapes inspired by fine art, nature and rendered to embrace their imperfections. These earrings can be worn as a pair or alone as a single piece giving an eclectic take on asymmetry. No matter how you decide to wear this statement-making pieces, let them take center stage while pairing down all your other accessories.

Now here's some piece you can find at Satin Doll & Co. and make into the "extra-special" trend.

Pantone Color of the Year 2018:Ultra Violet

Fashion & StylePosted by Gaetana Tuesday, December 19 2017 07:31AM
Pantone has release it's color of the year for 2018 and I'm happy to say it's a shade of purple. If you were to ask anyone what's Gaetana's favorite color they would say purple. I'm super excited it's this shade instead of a pastelly tone because I've been there and done that literally. I've had pastel bedroom walls from the time when I was 9-10 then again from 13-17 or 18. With a dark shade of purple for the carpet. Yes, I was one of those. So I can't wait for all the stores to start stocking this shade of purple. It's very wearable for all seasons and looks great on everyone.

Patone describes it as "a dramatically provocative and thoughtful purple shade. PANTONE 18-3838 Ultra Violet communicates originality, ingenuity, and visionary thinking that points us toward the future."

If you remember stars such as Prince, Jimmy Hendrix and David Bowie loved this shade of purple. Even kings. It definitely a shade that expresses individuality. Also emotion, and when a person usually wears this color they're going to make a mark on the world. (ie:Prince).


So enough chit chat on this amazing color. Here's some pieces that you can readily available at Satin Doll & Co. and be on trend.

July/August Must Haves

Fashion & StylePosted by Gaetana Tuesday, September 12 2017 10:14AM
The summer is basically over here in the northeast so I finally have time to do a proper blog post featuring my monthly favorites for July and August. They're are mostly hair item minus one jewelry item.So enough chit chat and onto my must haves.

You might of seen my post on Instagram about my hamsa bracelet that was missing for months but resurfaced one day when I was cleaning in the most unlikely place. Since I found it and repaired it it hasn't left my wrist except for one day when I forgot to put it one. Hamsa's are a symbol of protection and ward off evil in a nutshell. My original piece was all rose gold plated but I had to repair it with gold tone chain and findings. Nevertheless, I still love it. You can find a similar bracelet on our website but in silver tone. Silver Tone Hamsa Chain bracelet

Now with this next product I love what's in the container but of recently this brand has showed it's true colors. I won't touch on the controversy because you already heard about it and has moved on. But when I found it in my hall closet I said I would rather use it then toss it in the trash. Despite the company the product in this jar is pure gold. Shea Moisture Raw Shea & Cupuacu Frizz Defense Hair Masque is the business. One it smells so good but my thick hair loves it. I've noticed less frizz when I use. Will I be repurchasing??? I'm on the fence about that one. But since I stand behind my reasoning for not supporting this brand any longer I won't be repurchasing no matter how cheap you can find them. I'll pass but if you do still support this brand I would purchase this product.

Hold up, stop the press. Who knew Madam C.J. Walker was still in business. I didn't until I went to CurlFest.Now you know she's an OG of black hair care. I tried it and love it on the first try. I finished 2 packets with almost two months. Yes I was using is sparingly. One it smell soooo good, two the consistency is thick and a little goes a long way.Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Wonderful Deep Conditioning Masque is the business. It is going to be a staple in my hair care routine.My hair loves moisture and this product gives the moisture it craves and then some. Try it you'll love it. Available at Sephora.

When it comes to this brand I love Eden BodyWorks and the same can be said for their Jojoba Monoi Line. Their Natural Deep Conditioner is a must for my hair routine. I really should of picked up a full container at CurlFest. Well now I know. This conditioner in combination with my other regular conditioners makes my hair happy. Leaves my hair moisturized and helps makes the detangling process easier. Definitely adding this to my must have conditioners. Available at all your retailers.

I have a love and hate relationship with Creme of Nature. I love the scent of it but if I use it too regularly I'm over it.Nevertheless, I was loving there Intensive Conditioning Treatment. If it comes in a bottle like their shampoo does then I've used it in the past. Hands down my hair loves their entire line. It's never heavy or overly thick. My hair just absorbs it and makes for easy detangling. Leaves my hair moisturized. Available at all your retailers.

I started using the Eden BodyWorks Coconut Shea Leave in Conditioner when I finished my regular leave in. It can be used on a daily basis but I mainly used it after I washed and deep conditioned my hair. Even when I used it in the middle of week on dry hair it add the needed moisture my hair was craving. Super light, no,flaking or product buildup. I'll definitely be purchasing this product in the near future. Available at all your retailers.

Now this product surprised the hell out of me. I love me so Design Essentials. By day 3 of any hair style I do in my hair (ie:wash and go, twist out, two strand twist, bun,pony tail, pineapple) my hair is screaming for moisture. I normally spritz my hair with a little bit of water then a moisturizer and restyle. I instead used this in place Design Essentials Natural Coconut & Monoi Curl Enhancing Dual Hydration Milk.Wow! It has milky consistency, super light but highly moisturizing. A little goes a long way. I sealed with oil and my hair was good to go. I will definitely be purchasing when I go in the store. Try it. You'll see exactly what I mean. Available at all your retailers.

July and August were hair products heavy since it was the summer and I tend to spend a lot of time in the sun.Which results in my hair getting fried and needing a ton of moisture added.September has only started so you'll have to wait and see what I'm loving.

Trending: Insect Jewelry

Fashion & StylePosted by Gaetana Tuesday, July 11 2017 11:31AM
Not many women like any insects of any kind. So I find it super hilarious that insect jewelry is trending. Well not really because I've been known to design tons of insect jewelry (ie: dragonflies, butterflies) in the past. So if you're a huge fan of "insect" jewelry with out even realizing your are then you're going to love this trend. You can find it in several different types of medium from metals, to glass, to resin, to acrylic. The options are endless.

Here's a couple that you can find at Satin Doll & Co.
