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!

Bringing you the hottest happenings… Meilily!

The March 2009 issue of Vogue Magazine features an historic and inspirational cover photograph of First Lady Michelle Obama, photographed by Annie Leibovitz.  Looking relaxed, confident and real in the cover photograph, Michelle Obama is poised and calm in repose, wearing a beautiful magenta silk dress by Jason Wu.

It just might be true that Michelle Obama really is “the First Lady the world’s been waiting for” as Vogue Magazine has dubbed her.  Michelle Obama, who can pull off wearing both designer fashions as well as off-the-rack clothing from J. Crew and White House | Black Market, does not come across as stiff or guarded as First Ladies sometimes can.  We just can’t seem to get enough of First Lady Michelle Obama’s reachable style and down-to-earth presence.

Moreover, if the Michelle Obama March Vogue cover is any indication, this spring we are in for a treat, recession or not.  I expect that magentas, fuscias, and wines will be fashionable shades for spring, and that Taiwanese designer Jason Wu, › Continue reading
