Hi Darlings!  For those of you in the DC metro area, I hope you’re enjoying this freaky 70+ degree weather. Unfortunately, we’re about to take another big dip in temperature, within the next couple of days, so enjoy this gorgeous weather while you can.  If spring ever decides to show up, these Sugarplum booties by Jeffrey Campbell should be a definite must have.  

It appears this style of bootie is all the rage for 2014, {Sarah Jessica Parker, has an open toed version, Zara also has something similar, to name a few}.  I don’t really follow trends, but this is a classic that has been around for quite some time.

Available in a multitude of interesting colours and textures, I do have a soft spot for these beauties in pastel pink leather.  Available at Nasty Gal

Such A Darling Shoe, And Other Musings…

Darling Shoe by Jeffrey Campbell

I’m in love with the “Darling Pump” by Jeffrey Campbell.  There’s nothing like a simple high-heeled pointy toe stiletto in a fabulous pop of mint.

Spring 2013

It’s Friday, the weekend is here, right now it’s 78 degrees, so with the sun shining brightly, I wore my own pops of colour.  If you love the bangles, they are available in the blog shop; more beautiful colours to be posted this weekend.

I’m planning to see “The Great Gatsby” this weekend, I’ll give you my take on what appears to be a very extravagant and fabulous movie, directed by Baz Luhrmann. Although I haven’t seen it yet, I have a slight issue, that Mr. Luhrmann decided to use modern-day music, i.e. Rap, and Pop as the musical score for a film taking place in the art deco, flapper era {after all it was executive produced by Jay Z}; but then again Baz has always thought outside the box with his movies.

I’ll refrain from judgment until I’ve actually seen it; it’ll be interesting to see how it all goes together…  Stay tuned!

Have yourselves a beautiful and fabulous weekend.

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.

They’re Going To be Mine…

Just discovered these booties from one of my favourite shoe designers, Jeffrey Campbell.  This cute pair called the Antonio, I would have called them Victoria, or Elizabeth myself, but I digress.

These vintage inspired booties are a beautiful nude colour with gold accents. It’s the gold ornamentation, which really got me; it’s nice to have a bit of flash on your shoes/boots. These will definitely be going on my Autumn/Winter wish list.  Also available in black suede.

Price: $305 ~ Available at Bona Drag  Click Here

Happy Friday Dahhlings!  Have yourselves an extraordinary weekend… Mwah!

Got Black Milk?

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on May 11, 2012 at 11:40 am

Happy Friday fabulous people!  Those who know me or who’ve been following my blog, know I adore Jeffrey Campbell shoes/boots. The Lita shoe boot in all it’s variations has been a mild obsession of mine to say the least. Well Mr. Campbell has done it again. 

This time JC has teamed up with Black Milk Clothing to bring you the most creative limited edition boots seen in a while, with their screen printed comic strip artwork and psychedelic prints; these will surely become collector’s items. 

All your favourite Jeffrey Campbell styles, the Lita and the Night Lita, which is part of the heelless trend we are seeing lately, has had a rather artistic makeover.  Now as much as I love the heelless trend; I’m not sure if I’m actually going to buy a pair ( though I really want to) this is a shoe I’m going to have to try on to see what form of balancing act I’m going to have to perform in order to actually wear them.  No online shopping for these babies. I may stick with my Lita’s; it’s just a matter of deciding which print.


Pre-order yours at www.solestruck.com 

Also see the gorgeous screen prints on leggings, tee shirts, dresses and other clothing at www.blackmilkclothing.com

Well daahlings, have yourselves a glorious and blessed weekend, see you soon.

Like A Rockette…

In New Loves! on February 28, 2012 at 11:21 am

I don’t think I will ever stop wearing wedges, the higher the better. The wedge seems to have been around since time began, there has always been some variation of it throughout the ages.  Also, wedges provide the perfect balance and are much more comfortable to walk around in instead of a pair of stilettos.  Though I do love my stilettos  they just don’t work for me for every day wear as often, my feet can’t take it after 20+ years of wearing 4″ heels. 😉

 I just found Jeffrey Campbell’s Rockette Wedge in this gorgeous shade of blue suede at Urban Outfitters.  Jeffrey Campbell seems to be the “It” go to guy for gorgeous, well-made and unusual shoes under $200.

 

 

Available at  Urban Outfitters and other stores – $175.00

I’m Loving Jeffrey Campbell’s…

Lita Shoe!  Well it looks like Lita is here for a while and not going anywhere. Lita had a grand debut  in July 2010 and even had a first birthday party last year; and she’s still going strong.  There have been so many variations of this shoe boot you don’t know where to start, suede, leather, metallic, skin print, studs, lace, patterns, fur, you name it, Lita’s rocking it. There is not a colour way or fabric Lita doesn’t come in. I will be honest,  I didn’t know how I felt about her when she first came out, I had a kind of love/hate relationship with her. Then I saw her dressed in purple suede (see pic), in pink suede,  in turquoise suede and snake-skin (should I go on?) and I was sold.  Black seems to be the hardest colour to come by and is on back order in some places.  Now, nearly 2 years later I’m trying to decide which Lita to buy first (I need at least two).  There’s a huge Lita following on Instagram  (you can also follow me there on iPhone/iPad under Maylana) or you can check her out at  www.jeffreycampbellshoes.com, Nordstrom, www.solestruck.com and www.revolveclothing.com where there are great selections.  I’m about to get my Lita on, I’ll let you know what I end up with. Smooches!

More Colours

Love This Boot!

 

Sparkly!!
