Some of you might recall I posted about Ann Inc.’s newest brand, casual comforts line Lou & Grey, back when it opened up at the Natick, MA mall. They invited me back to check out their latest “Makers” items curated from artisans and small shops around the country. There’s handmade jewelry, books, lots of natural skin products and more which each would make thoughtful gifts. These Makers items are not available online, so I purchased some of my favorite pieces to make a gift package for one of you guys! This is a quickie in time for the holidays – simply fill out the Rafflecopter form at the bottom of this post, and I’ll draw a winner in 48 hours this Sunday.
Sidenote, I wore my drapeneck tunic up above which I posted about briefly during the last major sale. My usual size xxs petite fit well and the length is just right, covering up below the butt in case I want to wear leggings but not too long. The material is on the lighter side and is a soft and comfy knit for easy lounging.
Fitting room break – I had been eying this contrast cardigan online however it didn’t come in petite sizing. I tried on XS regular in-store and the fit was actually good for a casual, drape layer and wasn’t too long. It’s available starting in XXS regular online and for 50% right now!
The second item in my gift package is this hand-forged necklace from an jewelry maker in Portland, OR (trying it on in the photo above). I love both my statement and delicate necklaces alike, and sometimes all an outfit needs is a dainty piece to highlight the neckline.
As a lover of both cooking and DIY crafts, I was very excited to see this book which I selected as the third item in my gift package. I flipped through most of it and there’s an abundance of yummy-looking recipes plus easy crafts for the home (i.e. making a towel hanger with old knobs). All the books L&G; sell are curated from Word in Brooklyn, NY with the bookstore employees’ favorite reads.
Last but not least, I was a fan of this deep plum nail polish color for the winter. It’s made by a small business in NYC and is both earth and animal friendly – would make a great little gift for your friends who love such products!
To enter to win a gift package with all 4 items, please fill out the form below letting me know which way you follow this blog through, whether it’s Instagram, Facebook, or other – I appreciate each and every one of you! Winner will be drawn at random on Sunday 12/21 evening and will be notified via the email address provided. One entry per person, please. This giveaway will be open to readers with U.S. addresses only, but I’ll have another international one soon in a few days!
