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?

 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.

Trina At Banana Republic…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on June 8, 2012 at 1:03 pm

The Trina Turk capsule collection for Banana Republic, which was released yesterday, is in my opinion very Miami. Swirls of pinks, purples, blues, greens, and oranges. This colourful collection makes you want to sit fly out to the Caribbean to a swanky hotel and sit in a lounge chair by the infinity pool, while you sip delicately on a Pimms cocktail. Now wouldn’t that be lovely!

My favourites from the collection are a short strapless dress and a one shoulder number, going for approximately $150 and $130 respectively.

Love the one shoulder dress!

Love this dress!

This collection will probably go quickly, so mosey on over to www.bananarepublic.com to buy your little piece of vacation paradise.

The Long Weekend…

In Daily Musings on May 25, 2012 at 11:01 am

 

Well it’s finally here, the weekend we’ve been waiting for.  For me it means 4 whole days of relaxation, cocktails, a good book and fabulous company.  It’s time for some bright colours, high-heeled sandals and teeny bikinis if you can, or an elegant one piece if you can’t/or don’t want to.  It’s all about looking good, feeling good and putting your stylish foot forward; and just being you!  let’s get ready for summer!  Today I’m posting a Smorgasbord of pics for ideas and inspiration.

 

Have yourselves an amazing, tranquil, and pleasurable weekend.  I know I’m going to!

Smooches!

How Beautiful….

In Daily Musings on January 31, 2012 at 3:11 pm

These ladies look!  Queens of their domain. All of them regal and proud in their finery.  A friend of mine posted this on Facebook today, and I just had to share. The question my friend asked was, “What do you see when you look at this photo?”  What I saw was how proud they are, they look noble and confident. They also look as though they’ve seen a lot.  There is also an air of total grace, a sense of togetherness and a sense of family; whether they’re related or not, they’ll stick together through thick and thin.  As I said to my friend…  “I’d love to wear one of  these dresses with a pair of 5″ heels and call it a day” Maybe with my Jeffrey Campbell Lita shoes, don’t you think? Enjoy your Tuesday afternoon.

Proud black women in their finest!
