Love is in the air and Valentine’s Day is just around the corner! B and I decided that we won’t be doing a gift exchange this year, and instead will just focus on each other with a date night, TBD. He’s away for a month-long training, but will be back for the long weekend and I’m pee-in-my pants excited. Okay, okay, I know it has only been a week, but what can I say? I love my man.
If you’re also not on the gift exchange train, I say hop onto the treat yo self express. I hosted a Stella & Dot trunk show last weekend with some of my favorite gals, and I am completely in love with the spring line. Blues, blushes, geometric patterns, and moroccan flair all have a shining moment in the new line, and there is truly something for everyone. What’s there not to love?
P.S. Order by 2/8 for delivery by 2/14!
Last weekend my mom and sister Natalie decided to jointly host a Stella & Dot trunk show. I have eagerly been anticipating the change in seasons [I’m a sucker for crisp mornings when I can slip on my favorite Frye boots and a comfy scarf and call it a day] and was very excited to view Stella & Dot’s new fall and winter collection… in person!
Sarah, our Stella & Dot Stylist, pulling reams of glittering jewelry out of all-purpose “How Does She Do It” totes and expandable fabric “Getaway” bags [much like Mary Poppins and her bottomless carpet bag], decked out my mom’s cozy Virginia home with glitz, glam, and gold.
With a glass of vino bianco in hand, we scoured over the gems and baubles until we found something that caught our eye. My friend Lizzy gravitated toward the exotic “Pegasus” necklace, which seemed to be made just for her. Chelsea fell in love with the classic “Oasis Bib Necklace” while Natalie rocked the long “Kimberly Necklace” and my mom wore the “Chantilly Lace Cuff” and matching earrings throughout the party. It was fun to see which new styles fit everyone the best!
Some trends I’ve been seeing this season are versatile pieces that you can dress up, or down. My favorite from the collection was the “Kahlo Bib Necklace.” I can’t wait to pair this mixed medal necklace with a slouchy white T-shirt and a black blazer for work!
If you weren’t able to make the trunk show [or would just like to help my mom and Natalie earn free jewelry!], you can still shop online until September 6, 2013. Happy shopping!
