Welcome to the Dollhouse

I'm always down for any sort of event. Shopping, tweetup, fundraiser (love a good cause), concert, social or even to premier/preview something. So when I received a text about the Boston's Bazaar new event series, even though I didn't remember signing up, I was intrigued. You are sent the date and time but not the location. That is disclosed the day before. Exciting, but can also be inconvenient for some I'd imagine. The location was the Bell in Hand in Faneuil Hall. The event boasted an art show then the "dollhouse" which featured artists and retailers like Ragnarok, Lola's Urban Vintage, Jen Covino and even the ever stylish Christen Mitchell was there selling some old threads.

For the next time, I plan on attending with others or at least someone. I love meeting new people, but it seemed more of "do your own thing" kind of pop up. The music was perfection though. Anyone who plays MIA and M83 are cool in my book.

Calico Shopping Party!!!

I frequently peruse the site and find myself obsessing over every top or accessory, like the hammered cuff. The great thing about loving a store/site is also loving the owner and following her on twitter! I was so excited when she gave me the option of having a shopping party. A hot Summer night with aweome girls, clothes, accessories, wine & snacks??? Yes please!

Hammered Cuff!!!

Easy day

I had the day off and I knew it would be beautiful out. I bought a fantastic maxi skirt from BCBG awhile ago, but had yet to wear it. Today was the day and I had a dash of inspiration from Jamie's blog: featuring maxi dresses paired with vests! Perfection. I took the skirt and converted it to a dress, threw on a belt, a vest and voila! To further complete my look, I ventured into the copley farmers market and started browsing around. I found the Happy Scarves kiosk and got a black fedora.

Skirt: BCBG
Vest: Ben Sherman
Hat: Happy Scarves
Earrings: Aldo
Sunglasses: Forever 21
