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!

How Beautiful….

These ladies look!  Queens of their domain. All of them regal and proud in their finery.  A friend of mine posted this on Facebook today, and I just had to share. The question my friend asked was, “What do you see when you look at this photo?”  What I saw was how proud they are, they look noble and confident. They also look as though they’ve seen a lot.  There is also an air of total grace, a sense of togetherness and a sense of family; whether they’re related or not, they’ll stick together through thick and thin.  As I said to my friend…  “I’d love to wear one of  these dresses with a pair of 5″ heels and call it a day” Maybe with my Jeffrey Campbell Lita shoes, don’t you think? Enjoy your Tuesday afternoon.

Proud black women in their finest!

 

I Love My Star Sign…

For those of  you who know me, you know I love big statement rings. My rose quartz ring is always a conversation starter and I treasure it dearly (see pic below).  After browsing through my absolute  favourite shopping site, Etsy, I came across this fabulous Aquarius statement ring. I love being an Aquarian, we’re quirky, artistic, kind, moody, forgiving, a whole bunch of wonderful things! The quote by the sellar regarding this ring was perfect… “You know when you’re at a swinging party and some slick stud sidles up with the old school classic, ‘what’s your sign”‘ As far as I’m concerned this ring is perfect for addressing this question with a elegant flash of the hand! For those of you wanting to make your own statement, there are other sign rings, as well as other beautiful and original accessories at LarkinandLarkin at www.etsy.com

My Beautiful Rose Quartz Ring - Bracelet post coming soon!

I’m Loving Jeffrey Campbell’s…

Lita Shoe!  Well it looks like Lita is here for a while and not going anywhere. Lita had a grand debut  in July 2010 and even had a first birthday party last year; and she’s still going strong.  There have been so many variations of this shoe boot you don’t know where to start, suede, leather, metallic, skin print, studs, lace, patterns, fur, you name it, Lita’s rocking it. There is not a colour way or fabric Lita doesn’t come in. I will be honest,  I didn’t know how I felt about her when she first came out, I had a kind of love/hate relationship with her. Then I saw her dressed in purple suede (see pic), in pink suede,  in turquoise suede and snake-skin (should I go on?) and I was sold.  Black seems to be the hardest colour to come by and is on back order in some places.  Now, nearly 2 years later I’m trying to decide which Lita to buy first (I need at least two).  There’s a huge Lita following on Instagram  (you can also follow me there on iPhone/iPad under Maylana) or you can check her out at  www.jeffreycampbellshoes.com, Nordstrom, www.solestruck.com and www.revolveclothing.com where there are great selections.  I’m about to get my Lita on, I’ll let you know what I end up with. Smooches!

Love This Boot!

Love These…

“New Loves” will be all things fashion or otherwise, loved by me, I’ll tell you where to purchase and what I think if and when I buy the item featured.  Hit the “Like” button if you like them too… Happy Monday!

Here’s the first featured item…  Designer flats you can fit in your handbag & wear all day, every day or when you need a rest from your 5″ heels.  I just discovered these gorgeous flats on Facebook, they were also featured on the Oprah Gift Finder. I love the turquoise non slip soles and the gorgeous packaging.  Starting at $155 at www.Tiek.com  Take a look at all the fabulous colours and styles (leathers and metallics).  Yes these are expensive, but as far as I’m concerned, we’re worth it!! I will be treating myself to a lilac pair or these fuschia pink ones, they’ll look gorgeous with my daily head to toe black outfits when I need them.

Fold up and put in your handbag
