A few years ago I became a Stylist for an amazing brand called Stella & Dot; a company made by women for women selling stunning jewels and accessories.
A Stylist visited my little office in Winchester 3 years ago, left a Look Book for us to peruse and I was hooked. A couple of months later I signed up to work with them and became my own Stylist.
Now I must admit that after three new jobs, a house move and now expecting a baby I’ve not given this wonderful brand as much attention as it deserves, but it’s time to give it my all and fall in love with the products all over again.
Who are they:
Stella & Dot are an accessory company founded by Jessica Herrin, based predominantly in the US they came to the UK in 2011 and have been going from strength to strength since launching here. You can’t buy their items in stores; they are available exclusively through local Stylists or online.
The beauty of this is that you’re almost guaranteed you won’t see someone else at the school gate in the same necklace or shopping in town with the same tote. If you are fortunate enough to see someone else out and about with a Stella & Dot piece, give a little nod and a smile. You’re both part of the same exclusive club.
Amazing products at affordable prices:
Stella & Dot sell everything you could need to accessorize your outfits from simple studs and everyday staples to full glamour statement pieces worthy of the Oscars. Not being a regular red carpet attender myself I tend to favour the more delicate items but with summer, comes the need for big and bold colours so I am partial to a statement scarf or bag too.
Versatility; it’s not a word often associated with jewelry but Stella & Dot have truly mastered the versatile accessory. Necklaces such as the Sutton can be worn 5 different ways; front and back to reveal different colours and textures, detachable strands that can be worn alone, if you can envision it you can do it.
There are items to suit every budget with much of the range under £50.00 they make perfect gifts or treats for yourself.
How to browse and shop:
As mentioned earlier, Stella & Dot items are not available to buy in stores, they are exclusively available through Stylists. You can shop at home through Trunk Shows; a local stylist can visit your home where you and besties can try samples on and test the products out before you buy, shop online at your Stylist’s dedicated website or request a Look Book and flick through at your own leisure.
If you’re looking for a special piece to make your outfit really pop but need some inspiration, check out the Stella & Dot Instagram page or Pinterest account or search #stelladotstyle to see how real people wear theirs.
There’s never been a better time to have a look, the New Collection has just launched and it is stunning. My personal favourite is the reversible infinity scarf in rich burgundy – I am a sucker for this deep red colour and being reversible it’s like getting two for the price of one.
Check back shortly for my round up of my favourite pieces available from all collections, but in the meantime, grab a cuppa and take a little me time to have a look at the delights available online.
