Happy October 1! It’s still pretty warm in Houston, but I’m going to pretend the air is crisp, the leaves are crunchy, and the fires are blazing. Maybe I’ll turn the air conditioning reeaallly low and snuggle up with Coco and a mug of hot tea and flip through my favorite home decorating magazines.
October is a fun Stella & Dot month. My four-year Stellaversary – the anniversary of when I became an Independent Stylist – is this month, and I’m doing a special giveaway to one lucky reader to celebrate. We continue to raise money for breast cancer research, prevention, and treatment through our Breast Cancer Awareness Boutique, and our holiday collection debuts next week. We also have brand-new Trunk Show Exclusive Offers for our trunk show guests.
Breast Cancer Awareness Boutique
Every October, Stella & Dot supports Breast Cancer Awareness with a special boutique. 100% of the proceeds from the items in our boutique will support the Noreen Frasier Foundation’s work across North America. Do you know someone undergoing treatment for breast cancer or someone who is a survivor? One of these items would be a lovely way to show your support.
Our Strength Bracelet is inspired by the power and loyalty of the elephant. Shiny gold plating on a malleable brass bar with cutout elephant detail sits atop a hot pink leather band. Like the strength and design of a braided rope, the Inspire Bracelet is delicate and powerful. Shiny rose gold plating on a malleable brass bar with cutout rope detail sits atop a neutral metallic leather band. A heartfelt message expressed in the highest of standards in silver, gold and rose gold plating, the Hope Necklace is a reminder that you can and will persevere through whatever challenges you face.
I love the look of stacked bracelets – we call them “arm parties” at Stella & Dot – and Strength and Inspire are the perfect additions to any jewelry soiree!
Holiday Collection 2014
Our Holiday Collection debuts next Tuesday, and I can’t wait for you to see it! Sparkles and elephants and pink, oh, my! Elephants are a symbol of good luck, and it looks like this holiday will be a fortunate one indeed!
Style for a Steal
Did you know that over half of Stella & Dot’s line is under $50? We have everything from sparkly statement bracelets like the rose gold Amelie in the bottom left corner to classic hoops with a twist – small and large pairs with a removable spike drop, proving you can have great style without a high price tag. Click here to shop our Under $50 boutique.
October Trunk Show Exclusives
At Stella & Dot, we love to treat our trunk show guests to extra style for a steal, so we offer exclusive pieces for 50% off to every guest who spends $50 or more. This month’s Trunk Show Exclusive Offers feature my favorite bags and wallet and two sparkly, modern pearl necklaces.
I take my La Totale and Tia Cross Body with me on every trip. La Totale holds my laptop, planner, snacks, and water bottle and fits perfectly underneath an airline seat. The Tia Cross Body is perfect for travel. It is a slim, light-weight purse that unzips for a roomier profile. You can also detach the strap and use it as a clutch. I have the Mercer Zip Wallet in our snakeskin pattern, and I love it in the navy/red pattern. Wouldn’t the tote bag and matching wallet make a great gift?
Every woman should have pearls in her jewelry wardrobe, and our Dahlia Bib Necklace and Daphne Pearl Bracelet would be lovely additions to yours. Pair them with your favorite black or red dress for a chic statement during the holidays . To purchase one or all of these modern classics, click here. You must spend $50 to qualify for the offer, and there is a maximum quantity of one style per customer.
See, I told you October was a fun month! Are you as excited as I am to see all of our new sparkly goodies? Follow my blog to stay up to date on all of our latest releases!
