So… I’m embarking on the trip of a lifetime in April.  It’s actually a country on my bucket list!!! I AM BEYOND EXCITED!!! I won’t reveal where just yet, as there will be extensive blogging and Instagraming all about it, while I’m there… Please stay tuned!

Too Late Marimekko…

Banana Republic & Marimekko Polka Dot Dress #bananarepublic #shopping, banana republic, Banana Republic & Marimekko, Marimekko Well guess who overslept and woke up at a 7:00 a.m. to try to snag that gorgeous Marimekko skirt from Banana Republic, only to find out that the sale was open to card holders (which I’m one) 2 days early, and that it was the first item to go!!!!  This is what happens when you have too many things going on at the same time!! I need an assistant… Stat!

I was able to snag the strapless dress, which if I like it, will become my Saturday running errands dress.  For all of you who were able to grab the skirt… Congrats!!  I do have several skirts in the same style as the Marimekko skirt, so I’m not too crushed about it.  Apparently it’s also in stores, but I really don’t have time to run around looking for it.

Donna Karen Blood Red…

In Object's of Desire on October 15, 2013 at 10:38 am

OK… So I’m browsing the internet hoping to find a dress for a major event I have to attend next month, and I come across this beauty in Donna Karen’s signature body conscious draping.  It is so out of my price range {and not really the style I was looking for at the moment}, but I had to post, because I love it!!! Price tag $1895!!! Available at Neiman Marcus, if you’re so inclined.

Zara copy anyone?

Pant Dress

Naeem Khan Resort 2014

I absolutely adore cigarette pants with an open ballroom skirt {with side pockets no less!}.

This style is a throwback to the 1940’s.  Very elegant!

Love This Dress!!!

I love everything about this dress and the photography.  I love the way the photographer captured the dress, like a beautiful exotic bird, spreading her wings, showing you what she’s got! Stunning!

A Gorgeous Weekend Was Had…

Wearing a vintage beaded scarf I picked up for $4!!
Also wearing earrings from the Maylana’s Closet “Touch of India Collection” coming soon.

Hello fabulous people.  This morning truly looked like spring had finally sprung! After a gorgeous Saturday, a grey and dreary Sunday, today truly is starting out to be absolutely gorgeous.  Can we finally exhale our collective breaths that spring has arrived?

french connection dress dual

 I had a terrific weekend, I went scouting for vintage finds, at one of my favourite spots in Maryland, and came across a few goodies.  I found this gorgeous brand new sequined French Connection dress, with tags, which retailed last season for $248, selling for under $100,!!!  Alas, it was not in the Maylana’s Closet budget!

Liz Claibourne

I also found this gorgeous Liz Claiborne ankle length coat dress for under $5!!  I have not been a fan of Liz Claiborne for a number of years now, but this dress was too fantastic to resist.  I’m going to wear this unbuttoned up to the thigh with shorts underneath, cinched at the waist with ankle strap flats or high heels depending on my mood, and then paired with a colourful clutch. Very 50’s.

Those of you who follow my blog, know I love Instagram {as well as Pinterest!}; here are some of my weekend images. If you’d like to follow me on IG, you can find me @Maylana.

I hope your Easter weekend, was as blessed, fabulous and productive as mine.  Wishing you a Glorious Monday and a Fantastic and Amazing week.

Spring is Finally here… Kind of!

Maylana's Closet

Well today is the official first day of spring.  With temperatures in the high 40’s low 50’s (plus overnight frost) it certainly does not feel like it.  The most important thing is, it’s officially here, which means we have lovely warm weather and blue skies to look forward to.

haught hippie dress

With thoughts of spring in the air, I thought this lovely floral dress by Haute Hippie at PiperLime.com was a good representation of the weather to come. It’s a little on the expensive side at $565! but I’m sure you can find something very similar at H&M,  Zara or any of the other major chain stores.  If I find an alternative, I’ll feature it in a future post.  Click on the dress or the link to be taken to the PiperLime website.

Wishing you a Marvelous and Amazing Wednesday!

Ooooh Shoxie…

Shoxie Dress

 While going through my Instagram feed, I discovered the lovely boutique Shoxie!  When I saw this wrap maxi dress I was completely bowled over.  At $125.00, I think it’s a steal in order to look gorgeous, for the upcoming summer affairs, where you want to look simple, yet elegant, and very nicely put together, without too much fuss.  I’ve got my eye on either of the black and white striped dresses myself, or maybe the coral… decisions, decisions.

How would I wear? Sky high wedges and a neon clutch (post coming soon); topped off with my Tom Ford red lipstick in Cherry Lush, and I’m good to go 🙂

Make your way to their lovely online boutique here or click on the dresses above to be taken right to them!

A Rather Mint Friday….

In Daily Musings on July 20, 2012 at 9:30 am

My “Seeing Red” post {https://maylanascloset.com/2012/07/11/seeing-red/} went rather well (thanks everyone :-)), so I decided to showcase another colour that I love.  Here are my mint favourites. Enjoy!

Mint Fascinator and mint pleated dress, paired with a gorgeous olive Celine Trapeze bag (oh how I want that bag!) is a beautiful combination.

Mint crystal pleated dress, how it flows!

It has mint in it! Isn’t it gorgeous ~ The Deloris Petunia Cuff http://www.etsy.com/listing/64134075/custom-diamonds-are-a-girls-best  ~ Watch out for a future blog post ~Absolutely Gorgeous jewelry

I’m not sure what I love more, her funky afro or her mint coloured Mongolian fur jacket!

Simply Gorgeous! This is what you should wear while preparing yourself a little snack!

Do you see those mint crochet shorts?  ~ I could crochet my own pair! I’m also loving that ring with the ocean blue nail polish

There’s mint in here too! Limited edition Style Icon Tribal Skirt (UK) £29 ~ http://www.styleiconscloset.com/product/african-tribal-print-skirt

For me the styling of this shot is simply stunning!!!

Tranquility!

A Shabby Chic Vanity ~ A must!

…And to top it all off you must have a mint cream cupcake!

…Or would you rather mint/chocolate chip ice-cream?

My week has been really busy, but I’ve tried to continue to post beautiful things for you.  The past week is my idea of sparse posts, lots of gorgeous pictures with a little editorial.  I’m hoping to be back to full editoral content soon. Have a wonderful Friday, and have yourselves the most amazing, fun-filled {and cool} weekend!

Smooches!
