Meilily Hot Happenings & Haul Report: Barneys Sale = Marni Heels!

This year, the Barneys Warehouse Sale in San Francisco coincided with the Renegade Craft Fair, both at Fort Mason Center. Genius! Be sure to check out Meilily’s pics from the Craft Fair here.

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!

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…

New Melissa + Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon II Heels Now at Epaulet!

Wednesday, June 3rd, 2009 | Hot Happenings, Product Launches, Shoes, Stores | 2 Comments

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!

Meilily Loves: Artisanal Shoe Shopping at farfetch.com

Monday, April 6th, 2009 | Featured Shops, Product Picks, Sales, Shoes, Stores, Wishlist | 1 Comment

Meilily: Farfetch Shoes

Meilily: Farfetch Shoes

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.
