A Chic Friday…

Where is it?

Hello Daahlings… Happy Friday to you. I’ve been so busy running around like a crazy person, I’ve decided to take another mental health day to regroup.  This is a quick post to say hello, and to say; have yourselves a marvelous and gorgeous weekend.  Do something amazing so you can look back on Monday, and say “Yes I accomplished that!“.

I found the above photo on Pinterest, my favourite place for inspiration, and just had to post it.  The sorbet colours, and the sexy peek of coral caught my eye;  I feel she’s asking “where is it?”  Maybe she dropped her Harry Winston earring!

Enjoy your Friday and remember to…

 

Smooches Daahlings!

Wear Do You Sika?? (Repost)

In Daily Musings on May 16, 2012 at 9:32 am

This is a repost of a previously writtien article.  Quite a few people on Twitter and Instagram loved this particular piece, and asked me to repost; so here it is.  Happy Hump Day to all my fabulous bombshells!

For my birthday a couple of years ago, my sister Althea, bought me the most gorgeous 1950’s style dress,with an African twist.  Designed by a wonderful designer named Phyllis Taylor in London, who is the owner of a beautiful little shop named Sika Designs in South London.  I have been hooked on Sika dresses ever since, I wish she had a store here (sigh).  Ms. Taylor  who is of Ghanaian heritage creates her designs in London, which are then beautifully constructed with couture worthy stitching in Ghana; using genuine African fabric.

The Daisy Dress – From the new Labyrinth Collection

 

Sika dresses are statement pieces onto themselves, with their full skirts and layered petticoats (purchased separately) worn underneath.  A wide sash belt tied into a bow is the finishing touch on most dresses, you can’t help but be noticed.  For me Sika dresses are  “Mad Men” comes to Africa!

While wearing a Sika dress, you look and feel like an exotic, beautifully wrapped gift.  My sister has purchased other items for me from the Sika collection which I love equally; and now that the weather is about to break, look out for that bright spark of African fabric  in sky-high heels walking down the street; that will be me. Say hello if you see me 🙂

I would post a pic of me in my dress, but the quality of the photo once uploaded was blurry and not blog worthy.  I’ll take another pic soon.

Chloe, Diane & White…

In Daily Musings, Maylana's Dream List on April 3, 2012 at 11:20 am

I just love these Chloe dresses! They look so light and airy and extremely fabulous with their fine accordion pleats.  I think you’d look stylishly cool attending a outdoor summer wedding reception in one of these.  I wonder if Zara or more likely BCBG Max Azaria will recreate a similar dress?  These two among others tend to copy straight from the runway, or maybe it’ll show up next year at the Chloe outlet in Woodbury Commons, NY, that will be the only way I’m getting one.

Diane von Furestenberg S/S 2012

If you’re looking for something nice and crisp to wear while out meeting your best friend for brunch at Bouchon Bakery in New York, one glorious spring Sunday, you can never ever go wrong in this beautiful white Diane Von Furstenberg dress.  Diane’s iconic wrap dresses are forever classic.  Similar styles are available at Zara’s, Topshop, H&M and the like, if you’re trying not to break the bank.

 Note: Because I’m not from the U.S., the  whole not wearing white before memorial day doesn’t apply to me,  who created that law?  I’ve read the history, but as far as I’m concerned it doesn’t apply.  Live dangerously, wear white whenever you like!  Always remember, a Diva sets her own rules, she never ever follows!

Take my quick poll and let me know what you think!

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
