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!

Shifting Gears

Edited by Jennine

It’s here. Summer’s (basically) over, back to school, back to work… even in fashion today is the official first day of Fashion Week madness, and New York is only the beginning. I’ve always thought once Labor Day rolled around, we shifted gears realizing that the year is almost out it’s time to start packing it all in! This week, we’ve got an amazing round of links…seriously, it was so hard to pick only 20. Style Amor wonders if we really need fashion week at all… Heavy Heels sense the Winds of Change, as models start chopping their locks, The Demoiselles start a getting healthy project for a bunch of ladies, kaKofonie Of si(gh)lenS gets an remarkable interview with Patricia Ayers.
