This past Tuesday my girlfriend, Julie, held a Stella & Dot party. See, I practically begged her to, as I was on the hunt for a specific necklace (and you can only buy Stella from a stylist). True, you could go online and purchase from one, but what's more fun than getting the girls together and squealing over all the prettiness? Not to mention trying it all on.
If you're not familiar with the name, Stella & Dot, let me assure you, you're familiar with their line - even if you don't realize it. It's all over the hottest celebrities and in the likes of pretty much every fashion mag from Vogue to Harper's to Lucky to People Style Watch. Apparently if you watch The Bachelor, those girls were dripping in it - which might have been their only redeeming quality.
Getting to see it in person was great, since the quality is exquisite and some pieces that looked nice online were gorgeous in real life.
This is the necklace that started it all, The Pegasus.
I had budgeted $200 for jewelry that night. This necklace is $198. So it was this or I could get a slew of other goodies. I decided to splurge as I've never seen anything like this before and Brooke (our S&D Stylist) had it in her collection, so I was able to put it on and check out the quality. Each gold feather is hand sewn onto the softest silk organza and looks stunning. Score. This is one of the most expensive pieces in the line, so don't let the price deter you, there are some great deals to be had!
Here is what I still have on my wishlist:
