Work Product Pick: United Nude Fold Elastic Bootie – Comfortable & Unique

Tuesday, November 10th, 2009 | Fashion, Photos, Shoes, Style Picks, Work Product Picks | 3 Comments

meilily-shoes-united-nude-fold-elastic-bootsMeilily: In search of the most comfortable and stylish shoes for the office…

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…

Glamour’s Fashion Gives Back – Designer Tote Bags by Jason Wu & More

Friday, October 9th, 2009 | Fashion, Hot Happenings, Product Launches, Stores, Style Picks | 2 Comments

Meilily Hot Happenings! Glamour “Fashion Gives Back” Designer Totes for Charity!

meilily-glamour-fashion-gives-back-totes-jason-wu-brian-reyesWhat do fashion designers, a women’s charity, and Glamour magazine have in common? Helping others through design!

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
