A Stylish Return…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on July 9, 2012 at 9:30 am

It’s been one busy week! After finishing up a contract, going to lunch meetings to discuss where I’m taking the Maylana’s Closet empire next; taking numerous photos for my Etsy store (still in uploading phase, its never-ending) and then on top of that melting away in 100 degree heat! I think I have good reason to be MIA the last 4 days.  Well I’m back, rejuvenated, creative juices flowing and ready to roll! You may have noticed a few minor changes.  I’ve finally figured out how to add a tag line to my site “Living Out Loud ~ Today and Every Day” It’s a motto I’ve been living by for the last couple of years and it’s served me well.

I’ve also added a Blog Shop page; watch that space {visit it now to see a beautiful outfit from the Alexander McQueen resort collection}; lot’s of beautiful things coming soon. It will be a duplicate of some of my Etsy store listings which contains vintage items, but there will also be new/preloved items which don’t come under “vintage”, Etsy is very specific.  I will also be showcasing huge colourful crochet cowls and hats created by me for Fall/Winter 2012. My About Page has also had minor tweaking.

I was going to write a whole post on my new HP TouchSmart 520-1070 computer, but for brevity, I’m now only going to dedicate a small amount of space to it. Of course that’s my new baby above and below.  All I can say about it is I Love It!!!  It arrived on Friday and I’ve been in love ever since. It has all the bells and whistles, multi-touch screen, wireless mouse and keyboard, 2 TB hard drive, with 8GB of memory; it’s like one giant iPad if I want it to be; and I now feel like I am blogging in true style :-).  As my sister stated, it’s “A sexy bit of kit” what does that mean? well in Brit speak it means it’s a beautiful piece of machinery. It’s black, sexy and chic, like a classic Chanel dress! for more info visit www.shopping.hp.com/

I hope you had a fantastic weekend as I did, even while wilting.  Today I woke up to 72 degrees, though humid, it was a relief!  Let’s hope this cooler spell lasts for a while.

Wishing you all a fabulous, productive and amazing week.

Smooches Dahhlings!

Heel ~ Less Wonders?

In Daily Musings on June 12, 2012 at 11:02 am

The perfect coffee table adornment!

I’m quite intrigued by the heel less shoe which is trying to be the current trend right now (note: I said trying).  Thanks in part to Lady Gaga strutting in her Noritaka Tatehana designed shoe back in 2011.   What I’ve noticed, is you either really hate this shoe or you really love it.  I’m still undecided as I don’t see myself wearing these 20 years from now (will these ever be vintage? NOT!).  I do think these red sparkly ones above would look great on display in my living room though; what else would you do with these shoes?.  I’ve written about these shoes before, but was inspired to write about them again after attending a fabulous event a couple of weekends ago.  There were at least 3 women teetering around in these imaginary 5 inch wonders. 

These look like weapons!

After some research and watching YouTube videos, I found out that these shoes are fairly easy to walk in.  Apparently the trick is that the shoes are actually quite heavy because they are weighted in the platform base under the toe.  Therefore, all your weight is forced forwards, then downwards, so you are unable to tip backwards (I’m still not truly convinced about that).  On the flip side, I’ve also seen YouTube videos of fashion shows, where models have stumbled and fallen flat on their faces; not a pretty sight!  This is probably the last time you’ll hear about these shoes from me for a while, I’m moving on to other interesting things!

Have an amazing Tuesday! 

 

Oh Alexander…

The house of Alexander McQueen continues to reign. Where else can you find engraved platform sandals? These beauties are beyond fabulous. How do you wear them? You put on your most daring dress, then sit demurely with your legs elegantly crossed and admire them, with cocktail in hand! (I’m all for dressing up at home). Do you really want to wear them outside?

I hope you’re having a fabulous Sunday it’s gorgeous outside; do something nice for yourself!

Stay Inspired!
