She's here to give you some of her own personal fashion tips from the Stella & Dot fall line as well as providing a special surprise for one of my lucky readers!!
Dying to find out more?!? I know you are, so just keep reading....
Fall is right around the corner and the department stores are brimming with Fall fashions. I don’t know about you, but this year I’m not feeling like I have extra money to spend updating my wardrobe with the “latest and greatest” especially when a lot of these items won’t be in style next year. Maybe the clothing trends of over the knee boots, jewel tone dresses and leather jackets aren’t very practical for your every day routine and budget either. Stella & Dot, though, can provide you with some fabulous, budget-friendly ideas to jazz up your wardrobe.
Charm Necklace or Bracelet
Whether you are showing off your children’s birthstones or your own personal style, a charm necklace or bracelet is an excellent addition to your wardrobe.
The also make fabulous gifts—wouldn’t grandma love a necklace with her grandchildren’s’ birthstones?
If I am going to buy a statement necklace I want one that I can wear with jeans and one that I can wear dressed up. Meet Chloe and Claire —at $49 each these pieces certainly fit the bill. I love adding the Sasha Flower Brooch of the Claire Necklace.
Layering is great for a variety of reasons. Versatility is key when you are shopping on a budget and it’s great when you can layer your pieces to create different and new looks.
The Penelope Necklace looks great with the Gabrielle Citrine Necklace. I like this look with a cardigan sweater or anything with a v-neck. The Penelope Necklace looks great alone with anything. I throw it on with my yoga pants when I’m running around town and don’t have time to get dressed.
My mom’s favorite layering pieces are the Signature Dot Disk Necklace with the Charmed Life Necklace The Signature Dot Disk Necklace also looks great with the Starfish Necklace. The Signature Dot Disk Necklace can be worn long or short with these pieces, which just adds to its versatility. These pieces can be worn with absolutely anything.
For the past year I have had customers ask me for a Bee Necklace. I never knew those pesky little things that sting you would be so desirable in the form of a necklace!
I love stacking bracelets. An armful of bracelets can take an outfit from drab to glam in a second. Below are some of the bracelets I like to stack.
Soiree Pearl Pave Bracelets (my favorite combination are the Champagne and Brown)
Vintage Twist Bracelets. I love wearing both the gold and silver together and stacking them with the Devi Bangles.
