Fabulously Head Wrapped!

What I love about Instagram is that you meet and are able to follow the most interesting and creative people.  One of these people is a beautiful woman by the name of Paola.  Paola Mathe is a lifestyle blogger of Haitian descent based in New York City, but to me she is so much more than that.  She is beautiful, talented and moves to the beat of her own drum.  She exudes so much life and happiness,while embracing her rich Haitian culture.  Paola appears to be enjoying every single minute of life.  To me Paola is a woman who is living Boldly!

I have been following and collecting Paola’s Fanm Djanm (which means “Strong Woman”) head wraps for quite a while now.  These gorgeous creations are a statement unto themselves.  With their gorgeous colours and patterns, they are a sizable length, to create whatever style of head wrap you desire.  To make even more of a bold statement, you can also purchase and add a head chain; these stunning pieces of head/hair jewelry will surely cause you to stand out from the crowd.

Paola is an entrepreneur and blogger who truly inspires me.  Paola, you are a true Fanm Djanm!

To purchase your head wrap, visit Paola at her beautiful website

Pucker Up It’s National Lipstick Day…

Hello Darlings!

In honour of National Lipstick Day 2014, I had to post one of my absolute favourites, which I have posted here before.  I absolutely love Tom Ford’s Cherry Lush, which is my all time favourite red to wear, when I’m in the mood.

Another favourite colour of mine is Laura Mercier’s Dusk, which just this second, I’ve found out has been discontinued!! I’ve found it on Fragrance.net (click link above).  I must have it! Dusk was the perfect pink, with a mauve hue, when you just needed a little something.  I normally layer this colour with Touch (above) by MAC which is also one of my go to nudes.

Whatever colour you decide to wear, pucker up, wear it confidently, and be the amazing Sylista you truly are.

Remember to live life with passion!

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.

Hi Darlingsheart Red

My posts are a little scant right now, because life is really busy, lots going on, and has also taken an unusual turn, but in the very near future, I will be making important lifestyle changes, where I’ll be able to do exactly what I truly love… “Blog, Style, Vintage™” Stay tuned!  Sometimes you take on a project, which in the beginning you thought was going to enhance your life, but instead has caused you to continually turn to God, to help get you through each day!  Without going into details, it has yet been another teaching moment to guide me through this exciting, and wonderful, yet complicated journey called life.  No matter, what, I am Truly Blessed Beyond Measure!

This quote really spoke to me today…

Quote - I do not exist to impress the world

 

This weekend in DC was simply glorious!! We truly could not have asked for more, the sky was azure blue, with snow-white clouds and a lovely breeze, even in the high 80’s.

Everywhere I went, everyone just seemed so happy, and there were tons of babies everywhere which is always an adorable sight to see.  Church as always was a joy to attend. I truly love this time of year.

I want to wish you a beautifully blessed week, and until next time, remember to…

Quote - Be Who You Are

 I’m re-posting my anthem, “I’m Every Woman” by Chaka Khan for the “I’m Every Woman” out in this world.  Click on the link and enjoy!

Until next time… Peace, Love & Blessings

Too Late Marimekko…

Banana Republic & Marimekko Polka Dot Dress #bananarepublic #shopping, banana republic, Banana Republic & Marimekko, Marimekko Well guess who overslept and woke up at a 7:00 a.m. to try to snag that gorgeous Marimekko skirt from Banana Republic, only to find out that the sale was open to card holders (which I’m one) 2 days early, and that it was the first item to go!!!!  This is what happens when you have too many things going on at the same time!! I need an assistant… Stat!

I was able to snag the strapless dress, which if I like it, will become my Saturday running errands dress.  For all of you who were able to grab the skirt… Congrats!!  I do have several skirts in the same style as the Marimekko skirt, so I’m not too crushed about it.  Apparently it’s also in stores, but I really don’t have time to run around looking for it.

Banana Republic, Marimekko & Me…

Banana Republic & Marimekko

Well Darlings, I for one, cannot wait for the release of the limited edition capsule collection from Banana Republic and Marimekko.  Now this is a collaboration I can work with.  I will have my Banana card at the ready, especially for the skirt above.  I love a full midi skirt with side pockets, which is always a classic and timeless look.

Marimekko’s signature bold prints have graced clothes, fabrics, furniture, and tableware; and now Banana Republic has collaborated with the Finland based brand to come up with what in my opinion, will be a sell out collection {especially that skirt!}.

The two looks below are also on my radar, I’m loving  those cropped pants!!

Set your smart phone/tablet a few days ahead, to remind you, the collection debuts in select stores and online May 22.
