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.

More Vintage…

Maylana's Closet

Yesterday, I posted a couple of pieces, I found at my favourite vintage store; I forgot to post this gorgeous black slip and peach coloured ballerina style nightgown, that I thought you’d love to see.  I’m going to try the peach gown with a knee-length tank dress, belt it and maybe an additional vintage petticoat underneath to see how that works.  I’ll let you know 🙂

A young lady I met, while shopping, picked up these beauties for $5!!

It’s another gorgeous day, a little chilly, but I’ll take it, because the sun is shining very brightly!

Loving Vince Camuto…

Vince Camuto Sandals

 

I was in Nordstrom on Sunday, having a look around, and I came across these beautiful Vince Camuto sandals.  The colour is an absolutely stunning vivid blue suede, with a snake patterned heel and ankle strap.  I can see this with a little summer dress in white, paired with a yellow clutch {colour blocking at it’s best} and a statement necklace.  At $128, I think they’re nicely priced, for a gorgeous statement sandal.

Roll on Summer!

In Daily Musings on October 19, 2012 at 9:08 am

I’m really thanking God it’s Friday today.  Another long grueling week is coming to a close; but the weekend is finally here, and I’m going to enjoy it to the max!!!

I just found these chevron striped Louboutins and they have already made my morning while drinking my cup of hazelnut coffee.  I’m hoping to find other images of this shoe, so stay tuned.

I’m also planning to visit the Women Who Rock exhibition, which is an interactive retrospective, spotlighting more than 70 artists at the National Museum of Women In The Arts; here in DC until January 6.   Blog post on this groundbreaking presentation coming soon.

Have yourselves a Fabulous, Extraordinary and very Chic weekend.

Giuseppe Zanotti’s Special Edition…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on October 11, 2012 at 4:23 pm

I’m just loving the beautiful red shoes Giuseppe Zanotti has just released.  These beauties are a recreation of the red mules, the iconic actress, Katherine Hepburn, wore in the classic movie, Summertime, which was released in 1955 {I love black and white/old movies, the clothes, the style!}.

This beautiful recreation in suede with gold piping, studded with red crystals will truly make you the belle of the ball, this upcoming holiday season.

Find them here at Shoescribe.com

I’m Back!!!! Rocking Studded Chucks!!!

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on October 6, 2012 at 6:09 pm

Well After my mini hiatus, due to illness, I’m back! Look out for new posts, new outlook, new attitude.  These studded Chucks should let you know exactly how I’m feeling…  FULL OF LIFE, FIERCE AND READY TO BLOG ON 🙂 These chucks have a true rock chick vibe and I’m loving them!!

How would I style?  I’d wear a vintage men’s sweatshirt, DIY of course,with the neck cut at a slant, so its off the shoulder, some really skinny jeans or leggings, or, since we’re having a little Indian summer; instead of the jeans I’d pair with my short cargo shorts and my Longchamp bag in Bilberry thrown in for good measure; of course we can’t forget the Baroque Pradas!

Available at Free People Click here Also available at What Goes Around Comes Around click here.  And for those of you so inclined, there are many tutorials available online, to show you how to stud the pair you already own.

It’s good to be back!

Smooches Dahhlings!!!

So much has happened since my last post a week ago! Fall arrived, new contract keeping me busy, attended a very elegant fashion affair; and now I’m nursing a horrible head cold. So here’s a quick post for you, until I’m feeling better.

I found these colourful Missoni inspired shoes by Betsy Johnson and thought they were worth posting. Click here to purchase

I’d wear these beauties with a black menswear inspired pants suit accessorized with a rose gold clutch in order for the shoe to make it’s own “quiet” statement.

See you soon Dahhlings!

J. Crew And Jayne’s Ballet…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on September 18, 2012 at 7:41 pm

I’m in love with these ballet flats from J. Crew.  With it’s very lady like, yet edgy, gold chain T-strap. it’s the ideal dainty running around shoe, when heels just won’t do, but you still want to look chic.  Also available in black ~ $198 at J. Crew.

I had to post this shot of Linda Rodin from the J. Crew 2012 fall campaign, who is still fierce at 63 years old!  ~ Stylist turned beauty guru, still modeling, running a successful skin care line for mature women, among other things.  I love this quote from her “You can’t chase youth. You’ll just look older with a face lift.” How true!

This is going to be an extremely busy week, so my posts might be sparse; but I’ll try to send out a few short posts to keep you smiling.  Look out for some great images from New York Fashion week, courtesy of my friends over at Medina=Citi {yes the equal sign is deliberate}.

Do wonderful things with the rest of the week!
