We hosted our friends and family for a night of drinks, snacks and holiday shopping a few weeks ago, but we wanted to post a few pictures and thank everyone for coming! Hopefully all of the Christmas gifts were big hits....

Congratulations to Cibeline!

Our friend and fellow boutique owner, Cibeline, has moved her fabulous shop from Davis Square to Beacon Hill, so we all (Laura and Rebecca from Crush, Brooke and Steph from Mint Julep and Leah and Records from Jean Therapy) came out to celebrate! The new space looks amazing and the store is packed with holiday duds and great gifts too. If you're in the neighborhood, pop in to say hello!

Introducing.... Bundle! Big Style for Little Ones

We're proud to announce that our dear friend, Allison, has opened the cutest little shop catering to the minis in our lives. After several cold Saturday mornings searching Manhattan for the perfect gift for her dear friend Christine's new baby girl, Allison was surprised and frustrated by the dull mass-market collections and the extremely overpriced alternatives. Soon after, she decided to leave her Wall Street career and open a children's clothing boutique. She's done an incredible job, so if you're in NYC, come check it out. The store is stocked with great gifts for the holidays.

128 Thompson Street, New York, NY

Top Dress

Did anyone catch Bravo's Top Chef this week? Judge Gail Simmons (from Food & Wine Magazine) sported my favorite Nanette Lepore dress from this fall! Sorry ladies, we sold the last one this week...but we do have many other stunning Nanette Lepore dresses just in time for holiday party season!

Brookline First Light Festival this Thursday!

Years ago, before we opened Mint Julep, Steph and I marked the beginning of the holiday shopping season by attending the annual Brookline First Light Festival. Cupcakes at Party Favors, live music in the stores, checking out the holiday wares in the unique shops.... so much fun!

Now, as part of the the Coolidge Corner shopping district, we love being part of the celebration! Mint Julep will have a live musician and yummy holiday sweets, so come visit us and join in the holiday cheer.

The schedule of events is on the First Light website:

Thursday, December 4th
5 - 8 pm

See you there!
