Lou & Grey Natick MA & giveaway (now ended)

lou and grey makers gift 1**The giveaway winner is Manda W.! Thank you all so much for entering!**

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.  lou and grey makers gift 2

Trying on Lou & Grey striped tee, scarf, and “Makers” jewelry (available in-store only)


The first item I picked for the giveaway gift package is this super cozy cable knit scarf. I hope L&G; will start offering their scarves online soon!lou and grey makers gift side by side 670Lou & Grey cardigan, J.Brand jeans, Nine West flats (on sale!), Tory Burch tote

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!

    Hi Prithi – good question…when I was in the store they told me it only came in two colors, the second being a really light lavender (which I see on the website). My guess is yes it is the black ivory combo but I agree it looks very different online! I'm sorry I didn't take a photo of the tag or color # : /

    Hi Oanh…I'm so glad you love LOFT! One of my favorite brands. Which version of the sweater are you referring to? Please share a link if you get a chance : )

    I don't think they sell any nail polish online, but the one in my post is by this company and they do have a website http://www.pritinyc.com/

    Hi Jean! I love the scarf and the necklace. I follow your blog just by having on my favorites and reading when I get a chance. I got home from work a little early on Friday-I randomly turned on the TV and there you were on the Meredith Vieira show!!! You looked adorable!!!! You were very natural in front of the camera–(even with Meredith rushing you a little too much 🙂 It was a fun segment to watch and I really did feel like I was watching a friend on TV!

  40. Not sure why my comment didn't go thru…

    Jean, thank you for introducing me to Loft!! I love it!! And I love the nail colors. Do they have a website to order nail polish from?

    Sasa, the Loft version of the sweater is soft, comfy and worth it! I got it when it was 50% off 🙂
