On a whim, I entered an online Halloween Costume Contest posted on the blog of one of my favorite beauty brands, Thi Cosmetics, and… I won a makeover by super-talented makeup artist Taylor Pham!

Check out more photos of my very special makeover on the Thi Cosmetics blog (and additional photos by Kandidlight Photography)! It was an amazing experience (hair, brows, makeup, lashes), and I loved every minute of it! Thank you so much, Taylor and Mimi!

My costume entry: A handmade replica of the swan dress that Bjork wore to the Oscars. I later paired my swan dress with some Lady Dragon heart heels to complete the whimsical look!

About Thi Cosmetics: Taylor Pham started Thi Cosmetics with business partner and multi-talented friend Mimi Tran Rickett, and since then they have opened a gorgeous makeup studio in downtown Palo Alto, CA. If you’re in the area, definitely stop by – you’ll be hooked!

Read about all the details of my Thi Cosmetics Halloween Contest Makeover up next…

Meilily Hot Happenings & New Product Images!

The Fall ’09 Lady Dragon heels by Melissa & Vivienne Westwood Anglomania are now available, and Epaulet in New York just got an exclusive early delivery! They are apparently the only online retailer in the US to have these right now!!

If you’re familiar with Meilily’s love of the amazing Lady Dragon rubber heart heels by Melissa & Vivienne Westwood, you’ll know that Epaulet is Meilily’s go-to shop for getting these and other hard-to-find Melissa shoes here in the US. (Btw – Epaulet ships free and quickly within the US, and they also ship internationally!)


The New Fall ’09 Lady Dragon II Shoes

The new Fall ’09 Lady Dragon II slingback heels are still made with Melissa’s signature scented rubber material (and still run a bit large), but this time they feature a rubber bow in the front instead of a rubber heart. Also for Fall ’09, these new Lady Dragons come in darker colors, such as black and red. Oooh, who doesn’t like red shoes?!

And… if you prefer cute flats, Epaulet also just got a shipment of the new Melissa & Vivienne Westwood Fall ’09 Ultragirl flats with bow!
