Weekend Errands

Susana Fernandez | A Key to the Armoire

Weekend errands call for an easy and relaxed look, and nothing is more comfy than leggings and a tunic-style shirt, right? I added a bit of polish with bejeweled tortoise and antique ivory from the 30s. Adding a structured bag, like my Maxwell Scott Clarissa bag, and I was ready!

Back-to-Work Inspiration from Graphic Image New York

Susana Fernandez | A Key to the Armoire

Susana Fernandez | A Key to the Armoire

When September rolls around, the first thought in my mind is “Back to School”, which for me literally means…back to school, since I begin teaching again! It also means planning what to wear for a stylish return. Since I teach leadership, management, and human resources in a College of Business, I always like to dress professionally. After all, I feel it is important for students get a good example from their professors.

This fall, as you may have heard, green will be the shade of choice. Lucky me! Green is my favorite color so when I knew that I would be collaborating with the amazing company, Graphic Image New York, I immediately knew green would be the color for me. As for texture, the green crocodile-embossed leather just left me speechless. This luxurious and exotic leather is so, so, so close to the real thing, that you’ll jump for joy once you check the actual price of any of these pieces!

Yesterday, I told you a bit about Graphic Image New York, and gave you a brief “teaser” about how amazingly exquisite their products are. You can see it here. In this post, you can see how I used these beautiful pieces to inspire the outfit I wore to class. For many people, green is not the easiest color to style, and yet I find it a versatile neutral. Choose a shade with a bit of yellow in it, and it becomes warm; choose it with more blue, and it becomes cool. Once you choose the right shade, the possibilities are endless!

And don’t forget that Graphic Image New York is offering FREE PERSONALIZATION this week!

The Polished, Luxurious Desk with Graphic Image New York

A desk is a very personal thing. It should be practical enough for you to organize your work, but inspiring enough to entice you to want to sit down and work. Often, the décor is important, but so are the pieces you use for such a task.

Enter Graphic Image New York

If you are not familiar with their brand, you should remedy that…immediately! Their refined offerings will have you pining for work in no time! Sorry, I meant to say stylish work in no time!

Let’s start with a bit of background, shall we? Graphic Image New York has been making desks polished and luxurious since 1969. They are a family-run company that focuses on leather accessories ranging from custom orders to corporate gifts, and from leather-bound photo albums, to leather-covered pens, like mine. Their leathers are exquisite, and come from the finest tanneries in Italy and France.  Just to give you an idea, the embossed crocodile I chose for my pieces hails from Italy, and its striking resemblance to the real thing is achieved by painstakingly applying layer upon layer of hand-stained color under a glass finish. Trust me, you would need to be an expert to tell it apart from exotic crocodile. It’s that perfect!

As if affordable luxury and impeccable quality were not enough, Graphic Image New York also offers personalization, and I don’t know about you, but I get weak at the knees if monograms are involved! Yes, that would be the reason why ALL the pieces that they so kindly sent me were monogrammed! The best part about all this? Until September 29th at 9:00 am EDT, Graphic Image New York will offer FREE PERSONALIZATION!

Is there a better or more refined way to officially welcome fall? Going back to school has never been more stylish, right?

To see how my notebook, iPhone cover, business card case, and pen inspired my stylish back to school outfit, wait for my next post! You can now see it here!

Un escritorio es algo muy personal. Debe ser suficientemente práctico como para organizar nuestro trabajo, pero también inspirarnos lo suficiente como para hacernos querer sentarnos a trabajar. Con frecuencia, la decoración es importante, pero igualmente importante son las piezas que se utilicen para ello.

Y aqui es cuando Graphic Image New York hace su entrada…

Si no están familiarizados con esta firma, tienen que solucionar esto… pero ya! Su oferta refinada de productos les harán desear trabajar de inmediato! Perdón, quise decir desear trabajar con estilo de inmediato!

Empecemos con un poco de historia, de acuerdo? Graphic Image New York ha estado equipando escritorios con lujo y distinción desde 1969. Es una empresa familiar cuyos productos abarcan los accesorios en piel, que van desde albumes de fotos a plumas y bolígrafos, como el mio. Sus pieles son exquisitas, y provienen de las mas prestigiosas casas curtidoras de Italia y Francia. Solo para darles una idea, la piel troquelada en cocodrilo que yo escogí para mis piezas, viene de Italia, y su increíble parecido con el cocodrilo auténtico se consigue aplicando a mano, y con extremo cuidado, capa tras capa de color para terminar con una capa de brillo cristalizado. Créanme, necesitarían ser expertos en piel para diferenciarla del exótico cocodrilo. Es asi de perfecta!

Como si el lujo asequible y la impecable calidad no fueran suficientes, Graphic Image New York también ofrece personalizar sus productos, y no se si a ustedes les pasa, pero a mi me emociona todo lo que pueda llevar un monograma! Si, esa es la razón por la cual TODAS las piezas que amablemente me enviaron están personalizadas! Y la mejor parte de esto? Hasta septiembre 29 a las 9:00 am EDT, Graphic Image New York ofrecerá PERSONALIZAR GRATIS sus piezas!

A qué no hay forma mas refinada de darle oficialmente la bienvenida al otoño? Volver al cole o al trabajo nunca ha tenido mas estilo, verdad?

Para ver como mi cuaderno, cubierta de iPhone, sobre para tarjetasbolígrafo inspiraron el conjunto que elegí para volver a clase, esperen mi próxima entrada! Ya la pueden ver aqui!
