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

Featured Look: Camel, Capes, & Jeggings for Fall

Tuesday, September 21st, 2010 | Fashion, Featured Looks, Shoes, Style Picks | 2 Comments

Meilily Featured ShopStyle Look: Camel & Capes for Fall!

Gearing up for warm Fall spices, jewel-tones, and soft textures with uber-trendy jeggings.

Judging from the trends at the Fashion’s Night Out runway show (webcast), it looks like Camel is the hot color for Fall fashion! This Look centers around a beautiful Alexander McQueen Wool Kimono Cape in Camel ($3,420). A girl can dream, can’t she?!

The one thing in this look that I probably won’t be wearing anytime soon is the jeggings (jean leggings). Despite the fact that jeggings make my legs look like two fighting elephant seals, I so want them to look good on someone else – perhaps someone wearing a classy camel-colored cape

Featured Look: Benefit Cosmetics SF Blogger Party Outfit by Polyvore

Check out Meilily’s look from last night’s Benefit Cosmetics blogger party at the San Francisco Benefit Boutique!

I attended the Benefit blogger event to preview their three new Fall 2010 products, and had a great time! What’s not to love about meeting and chatting with Benefit’s awesome Global Trend Artist, Annie Ford Danielson (daughter of one of Benefit’s founding sisters), and also trying out hot new beauty products while sipping mini cocktails with cupcakes and grilled cheese from the new American Cupcake shop?! So glad I went!

Polyvore was there too, and they recreated my outfit as an online Polyvore set (see above). This works the same as creating a look on Shopstyle, and it’s fun to do!

I actually wore a gray knit dress by Iisli, Carmen short boots by Frye, and a gray scarf from Target, but you get the picture. Check out the end result up on Polyvore!

Hope you enjoyed this look! from Meilily
