This week’s #WCW is one of the greats…Sophia Loren; the embodiment of a mysterious, foreign beauty.
Beginning her career as a beauty queen at age 14, Sophia went on to dominate the film industry both in her native Italy and in the US. As the first person to win the Academy Award for best actress in a foreign language film for Two Women, Sophia was always destined for greatness. Although taking a step back from her acting career to focus on motherhood in the 70’s, Sophia continued to kill it in the film world – proving that women really can do it all. The release of her latest film, Human Voices, earlier this year has seen Sophia back on the festival circuit, and she is certainly not #sorryforpartying.
Sophia celebrates her 80th birthday this month, and is more fabulous than ever - and thats why our #WCW goes to her.
As Labor Day approaches, let’s send it off in style with the best food, drinks and of course, clothes of the season. We’ve teamed up with our favorite food blog, The New Potato to show you how to make your party unforgettable. Take note!
MAKE A STATEMENT
First, you have to dress the part. Make a statement in our favorite summer blowout looks:
Chilled out? The New Potato suggests a “mix of bossa nova, french pop, soul and samba - perfect for entertaining.”
Say Danielle and Laura: "A clean white theme in the summer with pops of bright color - try some fresh-picked flowers in little mason jars around the table, vintage glasses, or playful accents in your dishware. Once it gets dark, it’s nice to have candles lit and dispersed along the table."
Continuing the mini skirt mayhem, this skirt is a fun and edgy way to refresh your wardrobe. The skirt is fun, feminine, and SO versatile. Don’t believe us? Check out how we styled the MILLY Feather Mini five different ways here and get inspired to add some fringing into your wardrobe!
This week’s #WCW goes to the one and only, Beyoncé.
Referred to by the world as “Queen B”, Beyoncé lives up to her royal nickname. Born and raised in Houston, she performed in competitions as a child, but rose to fame as the lead singer of Destiny’s Child. She also played a part in the Grammy-award winning movie Dream Girls. Oh, and she’s released five albums, all having at least two songs hitting the top charts. Beyoncé never stops wow-ing the world. For example, when she dropped an entire album last year, or when she secretly released a song featuring Nicki Minaj last week. Another great thing about Beyoncé? She has a killer sense of style. Check her out in MILLY above~
So, Beyoncé, our #WCW goes to you. We admire you for your passion and intelligence, and your powerhouse vocals of course. Just keep doing whatever your doing, because its definitely working.

Tweed is back in a big way. Throw on the MILLY Piper Dress for a quick and easy outfit that is versatile and trans-seasonal: wear it with bare legs and sandals now, and add tights and boots when the sun starts to disappear.
Here at MILLY, we love the way leather adds a modern edge to your ensemble. Think classic leather pants in an unexpected texture, like these Python Leather Leggings, or a leather trim to modernize a staple sheath dress.
If you’re ready to make a statement, we are obsessing over this metallic Leather Pencil Skirt…it’s the perfect way to revitalize your wardrobe whilst maintaining a classic feminine silhouette. Dress it down with a fun Tee like this one, or mix it up by adding a knit for some contrasting texture!
