Tradesy In and Out of Your Closet…

Tradesy!

I only heard about this resale site just this morning.  Since I’ve been out of the blogging loop for a while, I’m not even sure when it came into existence, well I’m glad I know now!! What is Tradesy you ask? Tradesy makes resale fast, simple and stylish; request a shipping kit, snap a few photos, Tradesy will enhance your image to make it look stunning, name a price (or they’ll suggest one if you need help) then use the pre-addressed shipping kit to send your items to them.  Once sold, items arrive in a Net-a-Porter worthy box to their excited new owner.

Tradesy takes 9% of the proceeds, and the rest is yours.  As a buyer, there’s also a money back guarantee, if your new items aren’t up to par!  You can also buy pre-loved and new clothing and accessories from Zara to Chanel to Hermes, just type in your desired brand name and the world is your oyster.

Tradesy seems to have a pretty large inventory for you to choose from.  If you’re looking for a new way to sell that Chloe Marnie bag, that’s been sitting on your eBay site forever, and hasn’t sold, Tradesy just might be the way to move it.

Happy shopping Darlings!

Bangle, Chloe & Theodora Wrap Bangle, Jewelry, Maylana's Chronicles

 

So my bangle arrived today! I was pleasantly surprised as I truly did not expect it until the end of next week, if that!  I commend MyHabit.com and their speedy shipping.  The bangle is absolutely GORGEOUS! It looks expensive, has a nice weight to it (I don’t like flimsy jewelry!) and will be my go to piece for a while.

As I mentioned in my post on Tuesday, the bangle was originally$78 reduced to $25, well worth it, in my opinion.  Wrap bangle is still available here.

This definitely is a lovely early birthday present to me! Let the celebrations begin!

Love, Light & Blessings!

So I’m crocheting away and watching TV at the same time, when Access Hollywood came on.  I was too lazy to change the channel so I continued to watch.  Now, this is a show I hardly ever watch, but today, I’m glad I did.  This simple and elegant Chloe & Theodora bangle was being showcased on the show and available for purchase via MyHabit.com, for the wonderful price of $25 reduced from $78! It’s 14K gold-plated brass and the stones are Cubic Zirconia. I just love a good sale!! You know I went to my computer immediately and placed my order!  Get yours, supplies are limited.

Obsidian Cuff, ofakind, jewelry, One of a kind #jewelry #obsidiancuff I just saw this beauty on Instagram, which was created by Stanmore NYC for Of A Kind, one of my favourite, what I call blog stores; and fell completely in LOVE.  This cuff is simply GORGEOUS!!!

Hello Darlings! So good old Valentine’s Day is upon us again, and even though it may be too late to order a gift for yourself or significant other to arrive tomorrow, you can still purchase these lovely paper weights from Mark and Graham.  I love this store, you can buy the most lovely paper, monogrammed stationery, and desk accessories, as well as some really beautiful leather items. I love anything paper or any item that’s going to make my home office look elegant.  I think these fit the bill.

And ladies, if you’re single on Valentine’s Day, treat yourselves to one of these, and place it in prime position on your desk, as a reminder to always LOVE YOU FIRST♥

Here is one of my favourite poems from Nikki Giovanni’s book “Love Poems” which I’ve owned for years, and always love reading from time to time.  Have a fabulously blessed Valentine’s Day Darlings… Mwah

Love Is

Some people forget that love is 
tucking you in and kissing you 
“Good night” 
no matter how young or old you are

Some people don’t remember that 
love is 
listening and laughing and asking 
questions 
no matter what your age

Few recognize that love is 
commitment, responsibility 
no fun at all 
unless

Love is 
You and me

Autumn Transitions…

In Daily Musings on October 23, 2012 at 12:10 pm

After the extremely hot and humid summer we had {100+ degrees, 20 straight days} I’m actually glad Autumn is finally here, with temperatures ranging between 65 and 75 degrees.  The mornings are now chilly {at least between 35 and 50 degrees} so you now have to dress in layers; but by mid morning/afternoon, its blue skies and gorgeous temperatures.

Here are some of my suggestions for key autumn transition pieces. I know you must have some variation of these looks in your closet.

Purple!! One my absolutely favourite colours. And yes, I will be creating hats similar to this one… Love It!!!

My best purchase of the season ~ Zara Studio Coat which is now sold out

The Maylana’s Closet “Grand” Cowl ~ 85% Wool, 15% Alpaca ~ More colours on the way!

Always have a pop of colour!

oversized sweaters, cowls and extra long scarves are must haves!

Very much in love with these Steve Madden “Fraankie” Boots ~ For $150 they’re a great purchase, compared to others. ~click to buy ~

This is is going to be an ongoing post, I will be posting more ideas for your fall/winter wardrobe, as well as posting some of my own key pieces.

Giuseppe Zanotti’s Special Edition…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on October 11, 2012 at 4:23 pm

I’m just loving the beautiful red shoes Giuseppe Zanotti has just released.  These beauties are a recreation of the red mules, the iconic actress, Katherine Hepburn, wore in the classic movie, Summertime, which was released in 1955 {I love black and white/old movies, the clothes, the style!}.

This beautiful recreation in suede with gold piping, studded with red crystals will truly make you the belle of the ball, this upcoming holiday season.

Find them here at Shoescribe.com

Betsy Johnson’s Zig Zag Heels…

So much has happened since my last post a week ago! Fall arrived, new contract keeping me busy, attended a very elegant fashion affair; and now I’m nursing a horrible head cold. So here’s a quick post for you, until I’m feeling better.

I found these colourful Missoni inspired shoes by Betsy Johnson and thought they were worth posting. Click here to purchase

I’d wear these beauties with a black menswear inspired pants suit accessorized with a rose gold clutch in order for the shoe to make it’s own “quiet” statement.

See you soon Dahhlings!

Toting My Own FNO…

In Charities, Daily Musings on September 10, 2012 at 7:03 pm

I just received my Fashion’s Night Out tote bag from QVC {Ordered it on Thursday}, who powered the fashionsnightout.com website for last week’s event.  I must say I am surprised that the quality is as good as it is {which it should be for $50!}.

It’s manufactured by Brahmin {pricey handbag company} from heavy-duty cotton, with really nice quality soft leather handles and side accents; not the cheap crappy stuff.

The best thing about this tote is, that the net proceeds raised from the sale of this Vogue designed bag, will benefit “Fashion Targets Breast Cancer, the charitable initiative of the CFDA Foundation, Inc.
