5 Tips for a Calmer Happier Holiday Shopping Season and Beyond

Meilily: Bird Vine Jewelry Stand

Meilily Lifestyle: 5 Tips for a Calmer Happier Holiday Shopping Season: Habits, resources, and ideas to help us keep our cool.

It’s that time of year to re-visit our goals and inspirations (and our closets) to see what has been working and what hasn’t, and to find new ways to improve each day.

Let’s start with an easy yet powerful tip…

5. Make Your Bed - One of the easiest morning habits of many of the world’s most successful people is simply making the bed, according to bestelling author Tim Ferriss (“The 4-Hour Body”, Tim’s podcast episode on 5 Morning Rituals). This only takes 5-10 seconds to do, and creates a fresh space first thing in the morning. Also, developing small habits can help increase willpower, which will come in handy trying to resist shoes we don’t need.

4. Keep Calm and Step Away from Facebook - When you get the urge to check Facebook (link intentionally removed), instead, › Continue reading

Meilily Featured ShopStyle Look: Paris-inspired Print Blouse & Full Skirt for Summer/Fall!

If you’ve ever been to Paris and found yourself gazing longingly at any of the gorgeously understated shop windows, you’ll understand the inspiration for this Featured Look.

On my first trip to Paris, I stumbled upon an amazing window display for Parisian label, Cotelac. So delightful! Such casual sophistication!

When I soon discovered that an outfit of such understated sophistication as seen in the Cotelac shop window was not to be had for less than US$1,000, I vowed to return home and recreate the look for less.

Here is an admittedly more American take on the print blouse & full skirt combo inspired by Cotelac:
The look centers on a sheer print top in an enchanting woodsy green shade like this Maggie Ward silk blouse or a DKNY chiffon blouse with animal print (if you like that sort of thing).  Of course you’ll need a full neutral skirt like this Gun Print skirt by Porcelain (found at Modcloth) or › Continue reading

Sweetheart Necklace by Erica Weiner: Choose Your Lyrics

Sunday, July 15th, 2012 | Jewelry, Photos, Product Picks, Style Picks | Comments Off

Meilily: Erica Weiner Sweetheart Brass Necklace & Box
Meilily Product Pick: Erica Weiner Brass Sweetheart Necklace with Lyrics or Custom Text!

Erica Weiner is still one of my favorite indie jewelry makers.  From the ingenuity and whimsy of her best-selling handcuff lariat necklace, and now to the vintage sweetness of her letterpress lyrics heart necklaces, there’s something extra special about Erica Weiner’s pieces.

Earlier this year, during a sale, I picked up a couple Sweetheart Necklaces by Erica Weiner with custom stamped text on both sides.  The one inch brass heart is like a larger and flatter sweetheart candy heart on a 16″ chain, and with custom, slightly imperfect, letterpress lettering it looks rather striking and feels one-of-a-kind.

I chose to customize the necklaces with lyrics › Continue reading

Way back in March I finally ordered my very first Melissa Joy Manning jewelry piece, though I had been drooling over her jewelry for quite some time.

Vegan Eco-Friendly Coats from Vaute Couture: Featuring the Audrey Coat in Camel

Tuesday, January 11th, 2011 | Fashion, Photos, Sales, Style Picks | Comments Off

Meilily: Vaute Couture Audrey Coat
Meilily Style Pick & Photos: Vaute Couture’s Stylish, Vegan & Eco-Friendly Coats!

When Leanne Mai-ly Hilgart graduated from business school and founded her own company, we all got pretty lucky, because the company she started was Vaute Couture, bringing us drool-worthy vegan coats made from eco-friendly recycled materials. Vaute Couture is now starting to push the concept of vegan clothing to the forefront of fashion consciousness.

Vaute Couture first caught my attention last Fall when I saw their stylish weather-resistant coats online during a pre-sale.  When I found out that I could help finance their new production of Fall coats just by purchasing one in advance at the discounted pre-sale price, I was sold!

*Right now you can get 25% off new Vaute Couture coats with code LOVEYOU2 in celebration of their being named Company of the Year in the 2010 Veggie Awards.

What Anthropologie Got Me for My Birthday: Candle Necklace, Card & Coupon!

Monday, October 11th, 2010 | Free Stuff, Hot Happenings, Jewelry, Photos | 4 Comments


Meilily Hot Happenings & Free Stuff Alert: Special Birthday Gift for Anthropologie Members!

During my birthday month, Anthroplogie personally sent me a lovely birthday card and birthday gift. So thoughtful of them to remember my birthday! I know how busy they must be coming up with the cutest clothing every season, but they somehow managed to remember!

Perhaps it helped that I am an Anthropologie “member.” I originally signed up because it’s free and I like to shop there – plus they give you a membership card, the Anthro Card, in a really cute fabric drawstring bag. Since then, I have discovered some nice perks to being an Anthro account holder, including free shipping and now a surprise birthday gift!

What Anthropologie Got Me for My Birthday

Inside a lovely envelope of thick paper, I found a white card with a cupcake motif attached to a cute candle necklace › Continue reading
