On Monday, a fabulous group of bloggers, friends, and entrepreneurs gathered at Shake the Tree in Boston's North End to celebrate a night out hosted by your's truly! We had an absolute blast shopping at our favorite clothing, jewelry, and decor boutique while sipping on sangria and munching on arancini from Bacco, quesadillas from Urban Cantina, wraps from Going Bananas, and sweets from Bread + Butter (yeah, we definitely exceeded our calorie goal for the day, sorry PactApp)! And we know that shopping can be stressful sometimes (hmmm should I get two of these cute stackable rings, or three?!?!?!?!!!)...luckily, Exhale was there to provide back massages and mini reflexology sessions.
It was a full house, and it was great to see some of our fellow Boston Bloggers in the mix, including Annie White, Boston Day Book, Danielle Kempe, Dear Friend, Elizabeth Swartz, Faith Towers Design, Feathers and Stripes, Fenway Fashionista, Lifestyle of a Fashionista, Notes on Lifestyle by Georgina, Prim & Propah, Rentwhich, and I am probably missing a bunch more (please let me know in the comments)!

Nashville gal Mary Seng of Happily Grey is one who exhibits a natural ease. Her style is simple and she is seriously a pro with showing an idyllic juxtaposition of high and low items into one photo shoot-worthy look, ironically, full of color! Mary has grown her brand to new levels in such a short amount of time! She can rock a cape, a tomboy baseball hat and the highest of heels like no other. Happily Gray is sure to be the next blog you bookmark as your daily read!
Which look above of Mary's is your fave? Comment below!

Looking to dress to kill-it with the boys? Sandy is always a trusty costume for those not looking to break the bank. Bust out your pleather leggings, some heels, a cute black top and red lipstick and you're done! Acceptable costume attempt for the lazy gal, and totally hot.
Need to dress up but show zero skin and play it super safe? Rosie the Riveter is a great option and basically just requires you to make a Canadian tuxedo look a little bit more girly. This outfit is a favorite of mine for any corporate party where the last you want to do is look inappropriate or like you don't know how to have fun.
And lastly there's Katie, the hot girl from Wet Hot American Summer. This costume shows off your humor and taste in movies, all while contributing minimal effort and zero dollars. If you don't want to be Katie but have some other camp-y uniform ideas, really anyone from this movie's cast will be a hit at the party.
What are you dressing up as for Halloween 2014?

Have you guys check out This American Life's latest project, Serial? It's my latest addiction and is a podcast that unfolds one story a season. This season follows the story of Adnan Syed, who was accused of killing his high school ex-girlfriend back in 1999, and has been in prison for the last 15 years.
All the stars showed up for the debut showing of the Alexander Wang x HM line. What did you guys think of all the neoprene, spandex, mesh and mini backpacks? What, if any item, will you be first in line to buy?
That's all folks! Have a great week and don't forget to share your own updates with us via twitter at @justusgalsbos.
