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.

A Gorgeous Weekend Was Had…

Maylana's Closet

Wearing a vintage beaded scarf I picked up for $4!!
Also wearing earrings from the Maylana’s Closet “Touch of India Collection” coming soon.

Hello fabulous people.  This morning truly looked like spring had finally sprung! After a gorgeous Saturday, a grey and dreary Sunday, today truly is starting out to be absolutely gorgeous.  Can we finally exhale our collective breaths that spring has arrived?

 I had a terrific weekend, I went scouting for vintage finds, at one of my favourite spots in Maryland, and came across a few goodies.  I found this gorgeous brand new sequined French Connection dress, with tags, which retailed last season for $248, selling for under $100,!!!  Alas, it was not in the Maylana’s Closet budget!

Liz Claibourne

I also found this gorgeous Liz Claiborne ankle length coat dress for under $5!!  I have not been a fan of Liz Claiborne for a number of years now, but this dress was too fantastic to resist.  I’m going to wear this unbuttoned up to the thigh with shorts underneath, cinched at the waist with ankle strap flats or high heels depending on my mood, and then paired with a colourful clutch. Very 50’s.

Those of you who follow my blog, know I love Instagram {as well as Pinterest!}; here are some of my weekend images. If you’d like to follow me on IG, you can find me @Maylana.

I hope your Easter weekend, was as blessed, fabulous and productive as mine.  Wishing you a Glorious Monday and a Fantastic and Amazing week.

A Few Of My Favourite Things…

In Daily Musings, New Loves! on August 31, 2012 at 5:47 pm

Very much in love with this handbag by J. Mendel

Today should have been my monthly Object’s of Desire posting, where I would post something ultra extravagant, if I had unlimited funds and/or a Black Amex card.  Unfortunately my day started really late, so instead of giving you a half ass post, I’m posting a few of my favourite things.

I’m totally in love with the entire J. Mendel collection, lots of black {my favourite colour} as well as a strong reds, camels and greys. Click here to be taken to their boutique.

The Long Weekend…

In Daily Musings on May 25, 2012 at 11:01 am

 

Well it’s finally here, the weekend we’ve been waiting for.  For me it means 4 whole days of relaxation, cocktails, a good book and fabulous company.  It’s time for some bright colours, high-heeled sandals and teeny bikinis if you can, or an elegant one piece if you can’t/or don’t want to.  It’s all about looking good, feeling good and putting your stylish foot forward; and just being you!  let’s get ready for summer!  Today I’m posting a Smorgasbord of pics for ideas and inspiration.

 

Have yourselves an amazing, tranquil, and pleasurable weekend.  I know I’m going to!

Smooches!
