Dear Edna…

I am so in love with June Ambrose’s Edna Frames.  The super stylist to the stars has launched her sophomore collection of yet another crowd stopping, “where did you get those fabulous shades“; in collaboration with Selima Optique, the trend setting luxury eye-wear brand.  Nothing says “I’m super gorgeous”, than big statement frames.  These will definitely be going on my wish list, and staying on my radar, as it’s time to give my beloved Prada’s a rest, and start searching for a worthy replacement for summer 2014.

Available online at Selima Optique. in Black, Blond Horn (shown) and Blue Crystal.

Shoe Dazzle’s Bow Tie…

Shoe Dazzle

If you’re looking for a lovely ankle boot, and don’t want to make a serious investment, try the Alecia ankle boot, available at Shoe Dazzle.  At a mere $46.00, you can afford to buy both colours {I’m loving the fuchsia!}  This little beauty is very elegant with a 5″ heel and 1″ platform, topped off with a demur bow at the heel.  Wear this ankle boot with a pencil skirt {with a nice kick pleat in the back of course} and a lambswool  or cashmere turtle neck sweater, or pair the skirt with a fitted jacket {leather would be lovely}, then add a motif tee for a fun yet chic look.

Donna Karen Blood Red…

In Object's of Desire on October 15, 2013 at 10:38 am

OK… So I’m browsing the internet hoping to find a dress for a major event I have to attend next month, and I come across this beauty in Donna Karen’s signature body conscious draping.  It is so out of my price range {and not really the style I was looking for at the moment}, but I had to post, because I love it!!! Price tag $1895!!! Available at Neiman Marcus, if you’re so inclined.

Zara copy anyone?

From The Archives…

Here’s another from the Archives, honouring International Woman’s day.  Every day is our day, because as women we must  always keep calm {and beautiful} while running the world. It’s been a crazy couple of weeks, therefore the soft relaunch of this blog is yet to happen, but there’s still 2 weeks left in September {time is going by way too fast}.  I promise to be back before  the end of  the month

Dreaming of Louboutins…

Louboutins Winter 2013As I was cruising and dreaming through the Saks Fifth Avenue website, I came across these gorgeous Louboutin booties. This is one of the things you do when on hiatus, dream of beautiful things for Autumn/Winter 2013. Click on the image to be taken to the Saks website, to view more of this gorgeous item.

I forgot to mention in my last post, that even though I will not be blogging much this summer, you can still find me on Instagram and Pinterest, both under the user name @Maylana, and of course Facebook and Twitter both under the user name @maylanascloset. 

I’d love it if you clicked the “Like” button if you do stop by my Facebook page.

Have yourselves a beautiful and sun filled day!

Monday Musings…

Remind Myself

Happy Monday Guys & Dolls!  I hope you had a gorgeous weekend.  Once again, we had amazing weather here in DC, but it seems that a lot of people I spoke with had rain.  At one point I wondered if I was in the Twilight Zone!

I took a wander around a couple of stores, while I was killing time for my dental appointment on Saturday.  If you love the Gap like I do, you’ll love these flat sandals, and dusty pink moccasins, for when you’re running around town, and your 4″ heels just won’t do!

The sandals were $39.99 and the moccasins were on sale for $27.99 which I thought was a great deal. Both items were made from good quality leather, which made them an even better deal.

A new Nordstrom Rack has opened up where Barnes & Noble used to be on 18 & L {miss that store, I love book stores, which are  quickly becoming a dying breed}.  I loved these Ferragamo sandals, again on the low side, but still very elegant with their ankle strap.  Personally, I think ankle straps makes the legs look sexier, whether it’s a flat or high heeled shoe.

These were retailing for $239 down from $450!

When you’re having a red carpet moment, here’s this sequined Bagley Mischka dress {which was quite heavy} retailing on the sale rack for $650 down from $2500 {there were many reductions before the $650 price tag}.

Bagley Mischka dress

If you’re wondering about the quote above, it’s because I love being different, I love who I am, and would never want to be anyone else.  The words above, remind me to always stay true to myself.  Today is the start of new beginnings and abundance.  Remember… “You are what you think“.  Wishing you a Beautiful, Fantastic and Absolutely Positive week!

Will Spring Ever Get Here?

In Daily Musings on May 8, 2013 at 10:39 am

Summer White

Well Darlings, Spring  has left us once again; it has been a rainy and dreary 3 days here in Washington, DC, the sun has once again disappeared.  Apparently this is the 2nd coldest Spring on record, and right now this spring is heading towards being the coldest.  It was slighter warmer this time in 1975! It makes me wonder what this summer is going to be like… Will there be one?

The above image was found on Pinterest; I thought she looked so elegant, with her white dress and nude shoes… very summer.  I also think the perforated snake-skin Piccadilly wedge by Belstaff {love the wood panel} below, would also be gorgeous with this dress.  Hopefully we’ll all be wearing our spring/summer niceties very soon; if this weather ever changes!

Happy Wednesday, Have yourselves a beautiful day!
