And now, my list of MUST-SEE vendors participating in StyleFIXX! Though every vendor at the event will have amazing finds, these are among the ones I am most excited to shop.
Who: A charming, relaxed boutique where members get what they deserve...major discounts!
What: Spirit 75 is all about freedom of expression, and freedom from fashion with an outrageous price tag. Members of the boutique are automatically signed up to the brand's customer loyalty program "Free Spirit," offering 15% off discounts all the time! Free Spirit members are then awarded points each time they make a purchase (both online and at events), where $1 = 1 point. Membership levels are tiered meaning once you spend beyond a certain threshold your account is automatically upgraded, so that 15% off becomes 20% off, 20% off becomes 30% off...you get the idea! The discounted prices never expire and can be used whenever you want. For full details see their membership policy here.
Who: Jessica Herrin, CEO and Founder of Stella and Dot, is a woman of many talents. Using her business savvy and innate sense of style, Jessica created a company that not only sells great jewelry (and now scarves!), but one that offers today's modern woman the opportunity to have it all: professional success and a job you love.
What: Stella and Dot is a San Francisco based company that empowers women to succeed professionally while allowing them the flexible work schedule that a typical 9-to-5 does not. As a consumer you can shop their irresistible jewelry and accessories collection online, or you can work with a personal stylist to host exclusive trunk shows for you and your friends.

Who: Jewelry designed and founded by lifelong friends, each piece is created with you in mind.
What: Though only wholesalers can get in on the goods online, Kendra Phillip jewelry is sold at many Boston-based boutiques. The gold and silver toned collection is as beautiful as it is delicate, and each piece truly feels like it was handmade just for you. To see a full list of where you can get your hands on these gorgeous pieces (besides at StyleFIXX of course!), click here.
Who: Kristine Isberg, founder of chic and sensual lingerie boutique L'Ecole Nuit. Recognizing that the night often evokes a certain feminine mystique not readily apparent during the day, Kristine set out to create a lingerie company that empowers women to own la nuit and embrace their sense of romance and adventure.
What: A selection of delicate and exquisitely crafted merchandise offered by exclusively European designers, L'Ecole Nuit organizes its collection according to the personality of the wearer. Not sure what kind of femme you are? Click here to decide for yourself.
Who: Hairo Wash and Blow-dry, a Newbury Street salon offering a one-price-fits-all blowout that is sure to make your mane look like you stepped out of the shower and onto the red carpet.
What: From their signature big-volume blow-out to their more tailored-to-you looks, each blow-dry is only $35 and includes a shampoo and conditioner. For $10 extra you can sink into total relaxation as their experts go to work giving you the best scalp massage of your life. No longer are those attempts at recreating glamorous celebrity styles a source of frustration and blood loss (one can only hold a curling iron above one's head for so long), at Hairo you will leave looking and feeling your most fabulous.
