If I Were To Do It Again, Part Deux…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on August 15, 2012 at 11:02 am

After I posted this stunning wedding dress last week, I received quite a few questions via email and this blog asking where to find the dress, and were there more photos.  I originally found the dress on Pinterest.  I still believe this is a custom-made dress.

One of my new followers who goes by the name Precious (aka Valerie M-W.), did some very chic sleuthing and found the rest of the gown for me.  I was originally contacted by her friend Soyini G. who is getting married and was hoping to see more photos; well she enlisted Precious and now because of both of them, I am able to show you these beautiful images.  Thank you ladies!

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!

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!

Colour Block Monday…

In Daily Musings on June 25, 2012 at 10:23 am

Hi Daahlings! I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend. Mine was a very productive one.  I spent most of the weekend taking photos of my inventory for my new Etsy store (now to upload!).  As some of you may know, taking photos of clothes (or anything you want to post online) is a very time-consuming business; you’ve got to take a few shots in order to get 1 good one; so when you’re trying to add at least 5 images of an item, that’s a lot of shots.  I hope you’re weekend was as productive and lovely as mine, and that you are going to do wonderful things in this new week.

I found the photo above on one of my favourite sites, Pinterest, the yellow dress, the turquoise bag, the shoes, this photo is in my opinion, Perfect!! This is what colour blocking is all about. I thought it was the perfect image for a Monday morning.

This is my mood for today:

I hope you will be too!

Also, remember to enter the Maylana’s Closet L’Oreal Giveaway https://maylanascloset.com/2012/06/20/maylanas-loreal-giveaway/ ~ Ends Friday June 29th.

 Happy Monday and have yourselves a stylish and magnificent week!

Today has been the craziest and busiest day so far, therefore I have not had time to write today’s post.  I usually have what I call fill-in posts written in advance for when I’m busy, but I’ve been a little swamped over the past week.  Today I’m reposting an article that has been very popular and has generated a lot of interest.

To all my lovely bombshells who have been asking; the answer is NO!!! I have not found this bag; and not for the lack of trying!!  This aqua coloured Coach bag is the most elusive and obviously exclusive and rare Coach bag ever!  I have tried several avenues of trying to locate this bag, even calling outside the country; but to no avail.  This bag is easy to obtain in any other colour but the aqua; apparently Coach only released a very limited run in this colour.   At this time, we shall just have to continue to drool over the photo.

Stay tuned, I’m still searching!!!

ORIGINAL POST ~ APRIL 16, 2012

I just discovered this amazing aqua coloured Coach bag which I found on @justsitpretty’s Pinterest board. Do you hear me screaming just have to have!!! I am obsessed with this colour. This bag is simply gorgeous!!! It is 11:11 pm at night. I’m going to track this baby down tomorrow.

Update 4/17 – just found out from @justsitpretty this bag is called the Kristin Elevated Satchel and it’s no longer available in aqua… Bummer!  eBay here I come!!!

Have yourselves the most fabulous and amazing weekend!!

Oh Chanel….

I just found this gorgeous open-backed Chanel gown on Pinterest, and just had to post. It looks like an intricately beaded tattoo across your back. This dress commands attention! Only Chanel. Love it.

It’s Monday Already…

Wow… What a crazy weekend!!! Between creating iPad cases, shopping, a major photo shoot, and generally running around like a crazy person; I did not have time to write today’s post.  All will be well in the next few hours or more likely tomorrow.  In the meantime, I’ll leave you to gasp at the craziest pair of gorgeous yellow suede spiked heeled platforms; which must be at least 6″-7″ in height.  Photo courtesy of Rush Hour Fashions Pinterest shoe board!

Update 4/12 – I just found out this jewelry box can be found at Anthropologie and retails at $298… Wow!!

I was just browsing around on Pinterest and found this interesting jewelry box, and thought it interesting enough to post. I think I’m going to try to find one of these.

Friday Ramblings…

In Daily Musings on March 23, 2012 at 12:44 pm

Evy's springtime buys!

It has been an extremely short and busy week so, I haven’t been able to post as much as I usually do.  After my 3 hour doctor’s appointment on Wednesday ( I thought I’d be there for at least 45 minutes tops) where the doctor actually forgot about me. and had me sitting in the exam room for about an hour.  I did not leave my 3pm appointment until 6pm after being sent for an unexpected CAT Scan downstairs, where I waited another hour!  As you can imagine I was not happy!  This pretty much upset my equilibrium for the rest of the week!  I had to have a cocktail after that disaster.

A Razza-Tini after being forgotten about in the doctor's office, I deserved this!!

I hope you’ve all had a good week, it’s Friday and the weekend is here!! It’s supposed to be 85 degrees in DC today and off course 60% chance of rain tomorrow and Sunday… Oh well.  I was hoping to take pics of the cherry blossoms along the Tidal Basin, I guess we’ll see.  I will post about my afternoon in  DuPont Circle next week.  In the meantime, here are some random things which came across my path and peaked my interest.

My IG friend Evy posted the featured photo above of her cute spring trench and bejeweled shoes on Instagram. Shoes: Adrienne Vittadini “Sapphire” ballet flats, which she picked up at Marshalls.  I’ve seen these flats online and they are pretty expensive but Evy  was able to land a pair at a great price.  Trench by LEN in Minnesota.  This coupling is the perfect colour combination for spring 2012. It’s all about mixing your pinks, yellows, purples and greens and everything in between!

Another IG friend, “Flymanran” posted a pic of his tats. The detail is amazing, I can’t imagine sitting through that on a continuous basis!!  Beautiful work.

Amazing body work!

I just downloaded the album ‘Black Radio” by Robert Glasper which was released last month.  Absolutely fantastic!! Get it!! If you love  jazz with some funk, a little rap, neo soul with smooth jazz  thrown in for good measure, then this is the album you must buy.  Robert is a multi talented artist, who decided to create this concept album with its urban vibe to give jazz more flavour, which he felt was lacking.   I understand this is a departure from his usual material, he really hit the right chord here.  Well worth the download price.  I promise you will have this album on repeat.  Our favourite artists’ are at their artistic best on this album,  i.e., Erykah Badu, Bilal with Lupe Fiasco, Mos Def who is now going by the name of Yasiin Bey (more on that in another post), Lalah Hathaway, Musique Soulchild, Meshelle Ndegeochello (love her) the list goes on.  BUY IT!

I love this photo of Beyoncé’s, prettier and more talented sister (in my opinion),  which was on the cover of the March 16 issue of ES magazine (a British publication).  I love that she always changes up her style and never looks the same on any given day.  Do you remember the uproar when she took out her weave and cut her hair? Good for her I say!! I cut my locs 2 years ago and have not looked back since.

Love this Afro shot, which I found on Pinterest (my other favourite social site, along with Instagram), makes me want to go out and buy a big old afro wig, I’m pretty sure I could rock this look, with a bold print maxi dress, big funky jewelry and some high-heeled sandals. 🙂

Well these were a few of the things which caught my eye this week,  I couldn’t post them all as you’d be reading for days, so stay tuned.

And remember ladies….

Yes We Can!!

Have a fabulously, blessed and glorious weekend!

See you later Dahhlings!!
