Meilily Hot Happenings! Glamour “Fashion Gives Back” Designer Totes for Charity!
Right now, as part of Glamour Magazine’s Fashion Gives Back program, you can pick up special designer canvas tote bags exclusively at Bloomingdales NY (or Bloomingdales.com) for $35 each, and 100% of the proceeds will be donated to Dress for Success!
Glamour got six talented young designers to each design a Fashion Gives Back tote to benefit out-of-work women who need a boost. Tote bag designers include Jason Wu, the young Taiwanese designer who’s dresses have graced First Lady Michelle Obama on her first Vogue cover (and at President Obama’s inauguration), and also Brian Reyes, design duo Bensoni, jewelry designer Pamela Love, Gossip Girl designer Abigail Lorick, and shoe designer Alejandro Ingelmo.
Meilily’s two favorite Fashion Gives Back totes this year are from Jason Wu (his black gradient design is both elegant and exciting) and Brian Reyes (his red and black floral tote looks at once exotic yet strangely familiar).
Which designer tote do you like best?
**Stay tuned for more totebag photos, and Meilily just might be giving away one of these designer totes soon!
Bringing you the hottest happenings… Meilily!

Meilily Product Pick! Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation!
I don’t know why it has taken me so long to rave about Giorgio Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation (LSF)! Armani LSF has been one of my favorite liquid foundations ever since I first picked up a bottle in Europe, and I just re-purchased another bottle during a recent Neiman Marcus Armani beauty event.
Let me warn you that the money spent on a bottle of Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk Foundation could probably feed a small village, but fortunately this foundation —› › Continue reading

Meilily Free Stuff Alert!
Get a Free 3-piece KMS Haircare Set!
Did you spot the special Ulta coupon page in the latest InStyle Makeover issue? It’s easy to miss, but inside the current issue of InStyle Makeover, which features Vanessa Hudgens on the cover, there is a somewhat hidden special offer from Ulta for a free deluxe trial set of three KMS California hair products!
How to Get a Free KMS California Hair Product Set at Ulta:
This Ulta KMS offer does not mention a minimum purchase requirement nor does it require you to purchase any KMS products! How cool is that?! Oddly, the KMS offer looks just like any of the other ULTA ads peppering the pages of this issue of InStyle Makeover.
Once you find it, simply tear out and bring the KMS offer page from the InStyle Makeover issue to an Ulta store, and get a generous KMS hair product set free through October!
More Details on Redeeming the Free KMS Offer + a KMS Set Product Photo:
