Friends – about three weeks ago, as you can see from my Instagram pic below, I went to my mailbox and squeeled with delight to find the 2014 Spring/Summer Stella & Dot Lookbook had arrived!!! Even my pup, Bert seemed excited 🙂
I dunno about y’all … but I might love jewellery and accessories a little more than I love clothes. Why? Because they ALWAYS fit!!! If you’re like me, you’re used to going up and down in weight constantly. Which often means money spent on fab pieces of clothing only getting worn once or twice before it’s too big or too small to look “good” on you anymore. Buuuuut when you buy a lovely piece of jewellery or a fab pair of shoes or an amazing purse/scarf/hat…typically, no matter when you wear it again, it’s gonna look as fantastic on you, as the day you bought it!
Two years ago I got introduced to this fabulous line of jewellery and accessories through a girlfriend who hosted a Stella & Dot Party. Think Tupperware party meets the uber chic & fashionable. It is here that I met the lovely and stylish Amy Lazar Kleiman, Independent Stylist for Stella & Dot. And we became fast friends!
I’ve come to own and love many Stella & Dot pieces over the last few years … many of which I’ve incorporated into outfit posts on this blog already [See Shades of Grey for Spring, #BOPO Art Installation, Cherry Bomb, Pretty in Pink, and Navy Polkadots] . Now, if you’re new to discovering your love for Stella & Dot, you may be taken aback at the price-points of their items. I was too at first. But what I’ve come to really appreicate is the uniqueness of the jewellery – you are NOT gonna to find everyone and their sister wearing these pieces when you’re out and about, like you will if you’re wearing cheap costume jewellery of the Reitmans, AdditionElle and Forever21’s out there. Now don’t get me wrong, I’m all over the “Buy 2 get 1 free” deals on the sale racks of these spots too, but Stella & Dot’s quality and selection really is far superior than anything you’d find at the mall.
The best part about purchasing any thing Stella & Dot is the hassle free return policy, the low flat shipping rate and the fact that they stand behind the quality of their goods. The Bianca Tassel was one of my first and still beloved pieces I purchased. It goes with basically everything and I wore it often. Sadly, I’ve had bad luck with loosing a bobble or two. I alerted Amy, my Stella & Dot Stylist, and she took care of everything! Within a week I had a BRAND NEW Bianca Tassel Necklace at my door to replace the broken one – easy peasy!
With Spring just around the corner …. Amy and I will be bringing the readers and followers of Petite Plus, Meow! some exciting opportunities and a contest in a 3-Part Blog Stella & Dot Post! Exciting!!!!
