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

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…

Farfetch.com promises to fetch visitors the best and brightest of goodies from around the globe, delivered directly from far-off locales. Therefore, the site features one of the most interesting selections of shoes, clothing, and accessories around.
Though even the sale items at farfetch.com may be too expensive to splurge on at the moment, the sale section, particularly the sale shoe section, is definitely worth an inspirational peek once in a while.
For example, on my last visit, I was awed by the artistic construction of purple suede pumps by Chie Mihara (from Maison Nipi, Vigevano), the angled ergonomics of calf-length boots by Opening Ceremony (from SIX, London), and the scalloped classiness of gray patent leather peep toe heels by Emporio Armani (also from Maison Nipi).
Btw, last time I visited farfetch.com, they even had the Vivienne Westwood + Melissa Lady Dragon shoes featured by Meilily in salmon, but unfortunately they sold out. Farfetch.com still has other unique Melissa shoes though, like the oddly appealing Mistrey by Melissa rubber gladiator sandals.
