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

What Anthropologie Got Me for My Birthday: Candle Necklace, Card & Coupon!

Monday, October 11th, 2010 | Free Stuff, Hot Happenings, Jewelry, Photos | 4 Comments


Meilily Hot Happenings & Free Stuff Alert: Special Birthday Gift for Anthropologie Members!

During my birthday month, Anthroplogie personally sent me a lovely birthday card and birthday gift. So thoughtful of them to remember my birthday! I know how busy they must be coming up with the cutest clothing every season, but they somehow managed to remember!

Perhaps it helped that I am an Anthropologie “member.” I originally signed up because it’s free and I like to shop there – plus they give you a membership card, the Anthro Card, in a really cute fabric drawstring bag. Since then, I have discovered some nice perks to being an Anthro account holder, including free shipping and now a surprise birthday gift!

Inside a lovely envelope of thick paper, I found a white card with a cupcake motif attached to a cute candle necklace › Continue reading

Had a great time at the Renegade Craft Fair in San Francisco this past weekend! Did you go? Loved meeting tons of designers and supporting small/local businesses at the same time.

Nous Savons, Twinkie Chan Crochet, I Made You a Beard

Nous Savons, Twinkie Chan Crochet, I Made You a Beard

Some of my favorite designers from the 2010 SF Renegade Craft Fair:

- Nous Savons: Not only were the lapel necklaces unique and fun, but creator Jocelyn Nguyen was really sweet and friendly.
- Catia Chien: Illustrations – Delicate and beautiful. The children’s books she illustrated looked great! (Btw: Catia’s not listed on the Craft Fair artists page.)
- Souldier: Loved their reclaimed seat belt camera straps when I saw them on Photojojo – So many cool colors! Picked up a forest green camera strap, and I’m still trying to imagine the car it came from! (Souldier also makes guitar straps.)
- I Made You a Beard: Well-fitting well-made yarn beards. Need I say more?

Meilily Product Pick & Photos: Nervous System Algal Bloom Necklace!

I first discovered Nervous System jewelry on Design Milk, when a white silicone rubber rodialaria necklace caught my eye, with its organic cells forming a sort of crystalline honeycomb blossom. I immediately picked up a large algal bloom necklace (shown here), a white rodialaria bracelet, and a small stainless steel rodialaria necklace. Love all of it!

Nervous System creates fascinating and unique modern jewelry based on natural geometries and system generated design. Their work is high quality, slightly geeky, and uber-gorgeous. Check out these photos!

This large Algal Bloom Necklace is one of my favorite pieces of jewelry from Nervous System, photographed here in gold. This necklace is gorgeous – I get compliments all the time. › Continue reading
