Birkenstock Love…

Birkenstocks - Arizona Silver

 

You’ve just got to love Birkenstocks.  They have been around since the beginning of time. (at least it seems that way, I think Moses was wearing them!) A shoe that most of us would not have been seen dead in 20 years ago, but has now become an iconic style statement for every Stylista worth her salt and a wardrobe staple.

I myself own a couple of pairs, which I bought back in the mid 90’s and early 2000’s, way before they became the trend of 2014.  They are still  going strong today, and are in great condition.  The original Birkenstock, appears to be a shoe, that no matter what you do to them, they still keep going, and the comfort factor cannot be denied.  I think that’s why hippies loved them way back when.

A few companies have jumped on the Birkenstock “style” band wagon, Zara, Target, Steve Madden to name a few, creating their own version of this comfy shoe, but in my opinion, nothing beats the real thing.  Created in 1774, when Louis XVI ascended to the throne of France, a history tidbit that really has nothing to do with this post, but I thought I’d throw it in for good measure!

I don’t think this unlikely style statement is going anywhere any time soon.

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…

Sugarplum Booties For Spring…

Jeffrey Campbell Sugarplum Bootie, Maylana's Chronicles, Maylana's Closet, #jeffreycampbell

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.

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.

Be Creative, Be Inspired,  Be Amazing!
