Meilily Product Pick & Product Photos!
Are you ready for the most amazing high heels ever? For Spring 2009, Brazilian shoe company, Melissa, collaborated with British fashion designer, Vivienne Westwood, to design the hottest high heel shoe of the season as part of Westwood’s Anglomania Collection.
The Lady Dragon slingback heel by Melissa and Vivienne Westwood is made from sustainable natural rubber, and features a sweet plastic heart on the front of each shoe.
These aren’t your ordinary heels! The Melissa Lady Dragon currently comes in several fun and unique colors: Blue (fantastic baby blue with red heart), Pearl (soft white pearl with red heart), Salmon (peachy salmon with black heart), and Yellow (butter yellow with black heart).
Meilily has exclusive photos of the Lady Dragon in Pearl for your viewing pleasure!

Meilily’s Closeup Photos of the Lady Dragon in Pearl: (You can see that the material is actually somewhat pearlized and the plastic hearts are slightly matte. The shoes look anywhere from pearly white to silvery tan depending on the light.)
Product Details: Not only is the Lady Dragon heel uniquely made out of easy-to-clean sustainable rubber like most Melissa shoes, but this peep-toe slingback is actually quite comfortable, with a cushy foam insole and adjustable strap. The Lady Dragon is also scented! The shoe features the signature Melissa scent, something like powdery fruits, supposedly added to cover the natural scent of the raw material. With the Lady Dragon, you can be extremely stylish while also being eco-conscious!
Where to Get It: Meilily tracked down available Lady Dragon shoes to Epaulet, a boutique in New York that carries a wide assortment of Melissa shoes, including the Lady Dragon in all colors! (eLuxury currently only carries the Lady Dragon in Blue.) Epaulet has really fast priority mail shipping (2-3 days) and free shipping on orders over $50. So if you need a gift for Valentine’s Day, the Lady Dragon from Epaulet would be perfect. [Currently the Lady Dragon in Pearl is sold out at EpauletShop.com, but other colors are still available.]
At $149 the Melissa Lady Dragon slingback designed by Vivienne Westwood is a veritable steal! The Melissa Lady Dragon in Pearl has even been featured in the LATimes.com slideshow piece, “The ones to watch in 2009 – Jelly Shoes.”
Meilily says: Love the Melissa Lady Dragon Slingback Heels!
