The Nutcracker Giveaway

Banana Republic sweater Topshop skirt (similar) | ASOS clutch | J.Crew metallic heels | Kendra Scott ring c/o | Michael Kors watch | Ally + Zoe earrings

A couple weekends ago I had the pleasure of attending my first performance of The Nutcracker. That's right, first performance ever. Can you believe I've never seen it before?! It was just as enchanting as everyone told me it would be and what made it even more special was getting a chance to meet a couple of the ballerinas and take a tour backstage after the show. I truly felt the magic of the season and certainly won't lie that it made me as giddy as a kid in a candy store.

It only felt right to wear a feminine floral skirt for the evening (I misplaced my tutu ;), but it sure didn't match up to the beautiful ballerinas dressed in over 2,000 yards of net and tulle with 200,000 jewels sewn in place. Don't believe me? Well you can see for yourself! Thanks to The Boston Ballet, I'm giving away two free tickets to a performance of The Nutcracker this Thursday, December 18th at 7:30pm at the Boston Opera House. Enter the Rafflecopter below for your chance to win! Hurry though, the contest will end in 48 hours and I'll contact the winner shortly afterwards.

Follow the @bostonballet and @losofancy on Instagram as an entry into the contest. Contest open to Massachusetts Residents only.

Moments of Chic with Piperlime

J.Crew jacket | Piperlime Collection blouse c/o | Sabine pants c/o Piperlime | Pour La Victoire heels | Rebecca Minkoff bag c/o Saks Fifth Ave | J.Crew necklace | Kate Spade Shawna sunglasses

Hi there! I hope you had a wonderful and cozy holiday with your loved ones! It was snowing at home in Rhode Island on Turkey Day and then mother nature threw some 55+ degree temps our way over the weekend - she is such a tease. I took advantage of the slightly warmer temperature and fashioned my second Moment of Chic outfit with Piperlime (check out my first post here).

I love a good silk blouse in the colder months because it's certainly the most versatile top to own. Tucked in with a full flair skirt, underneath a blazer with skinny jeans, layered under a chunky knit sweater, or with a simple pair of printed soft pants like I'm wearing here - it's a wardrobe staple. I love it buttoned up to the neck to showcase a statement jeweled piece under the collar. I kept it monochromatic at the top and stuck to the grey and black color pairing that never fails in the winter time. The pants takes the look of comfort to another level of chic. They're a pair I would even consider wearing to sleep, is that weird? Nothing wrong with finding multiple ways to wear it! =)

Bash Studio x LoSo Fancy Giveaway {Closed}

The holidays are here and I'm sure you already have your social calendar booked with parties to attend, but when it comes down to what you're going to wear do you have your festive accessories lined up? Teardrop earrings, a bold necklace, or a statement clutch? If you answered "No" to the latter, today's your chance to change that. I'm so excited to be co-hosting this giveaway with my talented friend Kathryn Yee, event designer and founder of Bash Studio, to give one lucky winner this Charming Charlie Gold Glitter Hex Clutch.

So don't be shy to carry that sparkle around with you in the daytime - show it off for all the world to see.

To enter the giveaway, fill out the Rafflecopter below - both entries are mandatory for consideration to win.
And for an extra entry, comment on this post below by sharing with us how you would style this clutch for a casual brunch date or holiday bash!

Dagne Dover

Banana Republic top | Madewell denim | Steve Madden pumps | Dagne Dover Mini Tote c/o | Michael Kors watch | J.Crew necklace

I love a good handbag that allows me to carry the everyday necessities, especially for those weekend days in the city when I'm out running errands for hours with a brunch meet up with friends in between. And now with the weather getting colder I actually need a bigger tote to include the winter essentials like leather gloves, hand lotion, and hairspray (for my crazy static hair) to name a few. I love this Dagne Dover mini tote that has great compartments to keep all my products organized and easy to find. I'm a huge fan of cross body bags and the fact that this mini tote gives that as an option is a plus for me.

In other news, did you notice I chopped off my long locks? I was inspired by Lo Bosworth and Lauren Conrad's recent transformations that I just had to try it out for myself. I've never had my hair this short, probably not since I was 5 years old, but I've been embracing the change and growing to love the length. I may actually keep up with this lob for a very long time.

I wear this almost everyday because it looks simple chic with v-neck tees, chunky knit sweaters, and my silk blouses.
