a lou debut

It's no secret that I love Lou & Grey (for proof, see this post here, here, & here) but I fell even deeper in love with them this month, when they debuted their new collection online & in stores. The updated color palette is soft & sweet, including lavender, white, & a lot of gray. Their textured pieces add a fun flare & their oversized basics make me want to wear them straight to bed. I already made a New Year's resolution to spend less time fussing about what to wear & more time being comfortable & cute.. which equates to more money spent at Lou & Grey (like this jacket.. swoon) & less time whining on my closet floor. Head on over to the Natick Collection (Lou & Grey is in the new wing, on the first floor, located next to Ann Taylor LOFT) & start shopping!

I teamed up with Dodge to celebrate Dodge Charger’s 100th year cruising the streets. To honor the iconic Dodge Charger car, I was asked to re-invent a classic piece from my wardrobe into a modern, current look. I racked my closet brain and quickly decided there is nothing as iconic as a pair of bellbottoms, especially when paired with a simple sweater and blouse. I love the extreme pant leg on this pair of Ksubi denim, which covers my heels & elongates my legs. Lucky for us, trends may come & go but the great ones will never go out style. 

Cheers to another 100 years of a classic car. Congratulations, Dodge! Click here to check out December's street style (I'm December 17th!) in honor of Dodge Charger's Anniversary on StyleList.

Ah, The Nutcracker. A beautiful compilation of dancers, music, movement, & design.. a necessary showing for Boston residents & visitors. I had the pleasure to attend a dress rehearsal for the Boston Ballet's The Nutcracker a few weeks back before opening night to get a front row seat at both the ballet & the gorgeous detailing that goes into each costume handcrafted for the dancers.

If you went when you were young, great.. but you need to go back now! Mikko Nissinen, the Artistic Director for The Nutcracker, decided in 2011 to transform The Nutcracker with new sets & costumes. Sets including ornate details & lavish finishes, & costumes focusing on specific color palettes, endless yards of tulle, & perfectly placed jewels. I sat front row, camera in hand, & watched the entire performance in complete awe of both the dancers & the vibrance that shined through every aspect of the show. Because I clearly love giving (helloo, 12 days of Christmas), I am giving one of you lucky readers two tickets to The Nutcracker for a showing this week. The show will take place at the gorgeous Boston Opera House & you can choose which date & time works best for you: Wednesday at 7:30 PM, or Thursday at 1 PM or 7:30 PM. This giveaway will only last for 48 hours so, hurry up & enter in the Rafflecopter below.

On the 11th day of Christmas, Allie gave to you..

A pair of Booty by Brabants leggings & one free Booty by Brabant class at The Club by George Foreman! I mean, these giveaways can't get any better, folks! I love supporting women entrepreneurs in the Boston area & Kelly Brabants is one of them. I met Kelly on the Levo Brand panel & was able to learn all about how Booty by Brabants started. Basically, it's all about the booty.. she not only creates amazing leggings (that sell out within minutes!) but she teaches Booty by Brabants classes in Fort Point (get a taste here) at The Club that shape & tone that booty of yours. Kelly's a sweetheart & has made quite a name for herself in only a few months. All you need to do is follow @bootybybrabants on Instagram & enter in the Rafflecopter below! The giveaway will end a week from today on Saturday, December 20th.

Custom rings from KHoff Designs! If it's not obvious, I'm not a huge fan of jewelry. I like to consider myself a simple gal when it comes to jewelry, so I am all for dainty neckalces & dainty rings.

Lucky for you, she's giving away 4 custom rose gold rings, 3 stackable & one of your choice. Once the winner is chosen, you will work with KHoff to figure out which fingers, which size, & which rings! All you need to do is follow @khoffdesigns on Instagram & enter in the Rafflecopter below.

On the 9th day of Christmas, Allie gave to you...

A hair appointment (plus 3 Kerastase products) from my lovely hairdresser, Dara, at Blondie Salon & Spa! I wish I was kidding when I say people stop me in the streets (literally..) to ask me where I get my hair done. I owe it all to Dara, who I refer to as a hair goddess, for my lovely locks. I've been every color under the sun (dark, blonde, ombre) & have had every cut imaginable (bangs, blunt, long) & I truly believe Dara knows her way around a head of hair. Blondie Salon & Spa is located in Waltham which is roughly a 15 minute drive outside of Boston. Just follow @blondiesalonandspa on Instagram & enter in the Rafflecopter below. This giveaway will end a week from today on Thursday, December 18th. I can't wait to see one of you rock some gorgeous locks!
