Sweet Treats for the Feet

Melissa shoes have long managed to bridge stylish and eco-friendly. The Brazilian brand makes its shoes of MELFLEX plastic, which is recyclable, flexible and cruelty-free. In other words, we think you are ready for this jelly … shoe. Melissa takes its brand seriously, and as a result, buddies up with names like Vivienne Westwood and Jean Paul Gaultier. Melissa’s newest partnership is with American designer and Michelle Obama favorite Jason Wu, who will put his spin on two classic plastic silhouettes: the Lady Dragon pump, a sling-back-toe heel, and the Ultragirl ballet flat. The designs will debut in spring, and each come in three colors: black, nude and burgundy. Available at Wynn Las Vegas.

Seven beauty bargains

By Whitney Urichuk

Everyone loves the thrill of saving a penny or two. Here are a few of my picks for good alternatives to high-priced beauty products: Suave dry shampoo. Back in the day, baby powder was known as the quick fix to tame oily hair. Today, a product on the market called dry shampoo does just that; however, most are expensive and don’t go very far. Problem solved! Suave has a brand (sold at Target) that not only holds its own with the salon brands but has an amazing floral scent. At only $3, I suggest you stock up.
