{Giveaway} Grace Gallo Jacket and Necklace

FOF Grace Gallo is giving away this tailored, plaid jacket and stunning onyx necklace (retail value: $680) from her new line, Grace Gallo New York. Enter to win by leaving answering this question in the comments below: Where would you wear this blazer and necklace?

FOF Grace Gallo was born in Italy but grew up in Australia, where she spent 12 years working for the largest fashion retailer in the country, Coles Myer, on their advertising and marketing campaigns. She left Australia in 1992, when her career led her to Hong Kong to work on international marketing for a few Hong Kong based fashion companies. Grace’s company transferred her to New York in 1999 to set up their U.S. operation. Once she had that accomplished, she launched her own consulting and marketing business in 2001.  Inspired by New York, a place where she felt that she could achieve anything, she decided to fulfill her dream of having her own fashion line. “I felt that women needed some guidance on how to dress in the workplace,” says Grace, “and I wanted to help women do just that.”

Grace started product development for her line in 2010. Since she had worked in the fashion industry for so long, she had many contacts to reach out to for guidance. During the two years that she spent creating her line, she spent time in her birthplace of Italy, gathering expert advice on which fabrics would maintain a crisp, tailored look that she wanted her line to have.

Grace launched her line just last month, exclusively for sale on GraceGalloNewYork.com, and already she’s working on new additions.  She’s currently working on getting Grace Gallo New York into specialty boutiques, and hopes to have retailers pick her line up within the next few years.

“My line is classical, yet incorporates new trends,” says Grace.  “My designs lend themselves well to career women who doesn’t have time to go from the office to home to change to go out for dinner–they transfer well from day to evening.”

    Being a pastor’s wife, I have found that the members of our church love to see their “First Lady” dressed in lovely attire. The jacket is timeless! The beautiful necklace frames the face and draws attention to the lovely open collar. I already have a beautiful black hat that would be just perfect.

    The first place I would wear this blazer and necklace would be the opening of my friends little Bistro. The great part of this blazer is inside her Bistro are tables with awesome vases painted with blues and blacks, this blazer is the perfect fit for the opening. The necklace “wow” the silver just pop’s you can’t help drawing your eye to that piece, perfect combo. Love the flower on the blazer, so many different outfits and places to wear this set, thank you for this chance

    I would wear this gorgeous blazer and necklace everywhere! Together they are absolutely stunning. This is such a funny thing: I just saw a photo online of Sarah Jessica Parker wearing a blue and black coat–and I saved the photo. I adore these two colors together. Then, this email popped up–and I see that there is a chance to win this same color combo in a jacket. Be still, my heart!!!! I really, really want to win this combination.

    I also am an avid collector of gemstone jewelry. I have a huge display of rocks and crystals. I also make jewelry–but, I have given away more jewelry than I kept. As I am designing and making a piece of jewelry, a person would come to mind–and I knew that this jewelry was meant for them. It would be wonderful to win an onyx necklace for myself to keep!
