Sparkle Friday…

Sparkle Friday Compressed

Hello Darlings, today is Sparkle Friday.  This has been the most challenging week to date, and these shoes, which I found in the back of my closet, just this morning, did the trick.  Don’t you just love shopping in your own closet?  I have no idea why these shoes got relegated to the back of the closet, but here they are to cheer me up on this beautiful (yet overcast) last day of the week.

Wishing you the most fabulous and chic weekend, and to all the Beautiful, Caring and Hardworking Fabulous Mothers, who shower unconditional love to their families every day, have a beautifully blessed U.S. Mother’s Day

And remember…

If you’re looking for a lovely ankle boot, and don’t want to make a serious investment, try the Alecia ankle boot, available at Shoe Dazzle.  At a mere $46.00, you can afford to buy both colours {I’m loving the fuchsia!}  This little beauty is very elegant with a 5″ heel and 1″ platform, topped off with a demur bow at the heel.  Wear this ankle boot with a pencil skirt {with a nice kick pleat in the back of course} and a lambswool  or cashmere turtle neck sweater, or pair the skirt with a fitted jacket {leather would be lovely}, then add a motif tee for a fun yet chic look.

Remind Myself

Happy Monday Guys & Dolls!  I hope you had a gorgeous weekend.  Once again, we had amazing weather here in DC, but it seems that a lot of people I spoke with had rain.  At one point I wondered if I was in the Twilight Zone!

I took a wander around a couple of stores, while I was killing time for my dental appointment on Saturday.  If you love the Gap like I do, you’ll love these flat sandals, and dusty pink moccasins, for when you’re running around town, and your 4″ heels just won’t do!

The sandals were $39.99 and the moccasins were on sale for $27.99 which I thought was a great deal. Both items were made from good quality leather, which made them an even better deal.

A new Nordstrom Rack has opened up where Barnes & Noble used to be on 18 & L {miss that store, I love book stores, which are  quickly becoming a dying breed}.  I loved these Ferragamo sandals, again on the low side, but still very elegant with their ankle strap.  Personally, I think ankle straps makes the legs look sexier, whether it’s a flat or high heeled shoe.

These were retailing for $239 down from $450!

When you’re having a red carpet moment, here’s this sequined Bagley Mischka dress {which was quite heavy} retailing on the sale rack for $650 down from $2500 {there were many reductions before the $650 price tag}.

If you’re wondering about the quote above, it’s because I love being different, I love who I am, and would never want to be anyone else.  The words above, remind me to always stay true to myself.  Today is the start of new beginnings and abundance.  Remember… “You are what you think“.  Wishing you a Beautiful, Fantastic and Absolutely Positive week!

A Gorgeous Wednesday…

Evy Shoes

Hi darlings, it’s an absolutely beautiful day, with an amazingly blue sky, and not a cloud to be found.   After 3 days of dark heavy clouds and the pitter patter of rain, it was a relief to wake up this morning, to see sunlight streaming through my living room.  I have a small crystal ball hanging in the window, so I was welcomed to a glorious rainbow spectrum, swirling around the room… Lovely!

The photo above, of the  Zara shoes, I mentioned in last week’s post, “Zara Spring Things” was taken by the lovely Evy, who is one of my favourite Instagram friends, and also a very new blogger over at FashionistaOver40.  Evy has the most amazing and elegant style, with a fashion stylist eye for detail, and is also a true shopaholic like myself.  Please take some time to stop by her blog, and show her some blogger love.

We’re half way to the weekend, and the weather is supposed to hold up between now and then, we’ll see!  Wishing you the most Fabulous Wednesday.

Andreia-Chaves-shoes-Naked-Shoe-(Black-Nude)-010604

These incredible shoes from Brazilian designer Andreia Chaves, are handmade to order, taking approximately 4-6 weeks for delivery.  With a 5.5″ heel and 3/4″ platform, these sky-high heels are a cross between fashion and mathematical engineering. With a whopping price tag of $2,795.95, it’ll be interesting to see which actress/singer/reality show person, will be seen wearing them first.

What are your thoughts about them?

A Very Chic Friday, With Water…

Jimmy Choo Shoes

It’s been a busy day, so today’s post is going to be short and sweet.  Aren’t the Jimmy Choo shoes above just simply gorgeous!! Spring has truly sprung with these beauties.  Also the photography is whimsical and beautiful; I imagine an updated and rather stylish Alice falling down the rabbit hole in “Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland“.

I’m also in love with the silver Tom Ford Sandals below, they’ll  be added to the “Maylana’s Dream List“, which I haven’t created in quite some time.  Look out for new dream list items soon.

I’m on a major health kick right now, and I wanted to share this refreshing detox beverage, which I like to drink often.  It’s very simple, lemons, cucumbers and mint! Click on the image to be taken to the lovely “The Denver Housewife” blog; who has more recipe details, and who posted this beautiful bottle on Pinterest.

I want to wish you a Fabulous Friday and a Fantastic and Inspired weekend.

Maylana's Closet

Hello Darlings! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend as I did.  You’ll be happy to know that the Maylana’s Closet Blog Shop is finally open! Right now the bangles shown above from my “Touch of India Collection”  are available for purchase; there are also a pair of exquisite earrings {seen in 3rd pic below, 5 sets available) also for purchase.  There will be more eclectic and beautiful items coming to the Blog Shop very soon.  Click on the link above, and let me know what you think.  Please bear in mind, it’s still a work in progress.

Pedicure

Part of my weekend was spent pampering myself, so I decided to give myself a pedicure. Color used was Estee Lauder Béte Noire ,{dark purple} with Sally Hansen Diamond Flash Top coat. {Sandals are by Zara, circa 2009} Ladies, pampering yourselves on a regular basis, is conducive to your well-being, it’s a must!

I plan to invest in a tripod very soon, so that I can start taking full length self portraits with my Canon T3i; I realize fully now, that as a blogger, a tripod is your best friend!  In the meantime my trusty iPhone is going to have to do.  Here’s a peek of what I’m wearing today.

New York Tee Shirt

On Saturday I decided to represent my 1st adopted home, New York!!! It was where I lived, my first 15 years in the U.S.  I truly miss living there, there is nothing else like NYC! {click on the link, to hear my favourite New York song}.  So with a pair of scissors, I slashed the neck of this tee-shirt, and I was on my way; having my own personal New York minute.  I hope to take a trip there soon, great blogging material there.

I did not get a chance to participate in the Cherry Blossom Festival on Saturday {I found 1000 other things I needed to do}, but I’m still hoping to bring you some gorgeous photos at a later date.

To round things out, I found this quote on Pinterest and simply love it…

Love

Have yourselves the most fabulous Monday; make sure that YOU make it Amazing!
