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…

Meilily Hot Happenings & Haul Report: Barneys Sale = Marni Heels!
SF Barneys Warehouse Sale Highlights:
Not expecting to find much, I headed straight for the Barneys Women’s Shoes section at the back. (The women’s handbag and accessories selection was dismal, btw.) The first Sunday of the SF sale wasn’t too crowded and there was room to sit down and try on shoes. With shoes arranged by size in typical clearance fashion, only the right mate was available on the racks. Note: Each shoe box gets sealed with rope before you can take it over to the registers! Talk about security!
After trying on some ill-fitting Prada wedges and a chic Italian multi-strap zippered heel (just a little too large), I found some super-comfortable and cute Marni suede heels (photo below) that hugged my feet when I put them on. I was immediately sold!

In this Work Product series, I try to find the best work shoe of all worlds: a stylish and flattering office-friendly shoe that is, very importantly, comfortable to walk in (and I do mean walk not hobble). Brownie points for head-turning or compliment-inducing capabilities!
Most working professional women out there have a dilemma: wear stylish leg-flattering (yet crippling) heels or wear comfortable leg-shortening flats, or gasp even consider wearing 80′s era mid-heel pumps? What is a gal to do?!
The first shoe worth selecting as a Meilily Work Product Pick is… the “Fold” Elastic Bootie by United Nude! This shoe is amazing!
Check out these product photos and thoughts on the Fold Elastic Bootie…
