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

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…

Anti-aging Cream in the News Again: Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense – Scientifically Tested, Proven to Increase Demand

Tuesday, April 28th, 2009 | Beauty and Science, Photos, Skincare | 10 Comments

Beauty & Science News! from Meilily

Scientifically tested, and proven to…  increase demand?

Boots No 7 skincare is in the news again!   New research apparently confirms the efficacy of yet another Boots No 7 anti-aging product, and reminds us of what happened the last time Boots skincare was in the news…

Boots is the UK beauty product manufacturer that fueled the desire of women everywhere two years ago when their extremely popular Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Beauty Serum (a.k.a Restore & Renew in the US) was shown to increase the youthful appearance of skin. [Remember how that very same Boots anti-aging serum sold out everywhere immediately following a BBC television show announcing its positive anti-aging results?]

This time it won’t be Boots’ Protect & Perfect serum flying off the shelves. Instead, the mass-market product at the center of the latest scientific study is the Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum.

Results from a new year-long scientific double-blind study funded by Boots and published online today in the British Journal of Dermatology showed the anti-aging efficacy of the Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum, demonstrating “for the first time, that a commercially available over-the-counter ‘anti-ageing’ product improves the appearance of facial wrinkles when used in the long term.”

The same research team has apparently found that both the original Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Beauty Serum and the Boots No 7 Protect & Perfect Intense Beauty Serum can stimulate production of a protein that promotes skin elasticity called fibrillin-1. The latest study links the improvement of facial wrinkles in photo-aged skin to the serum’s ability to restore this fibrillin-1 protein, but does not specifically breakdown the particular contribution of key ingredients to this effect.

Meilily’s Thoughts on the Study Results and  Product Comparisons

Meilily posits that the new scientific results may be part of an extremely smart marketing strategy for Boots…  › Continue reading
