Melissa’s Stella&Dot Party + GIVEAWAY!

Tuesday night I hosted a Stella and Dot trunk show at my place. I have never really been super into designer jewelry mainly because I have a hard time dropping that much money on accessories, however, I think Stella has won me over! Let me tell you why — so you’ve probably seen their collection online and in catalogs, etc. but what you can’t see is the versatility of many of their pieces. Oftentimes when you pick a necklace, you are actually getting multiple necklaces in one! Same with earrings. So many of their pieces can be taken apart and worn different ways — more bling or less, longer length or shorter, etc. Plus it is DURABLE and very good quality! I was super impressed after actually taking the time to get my hands on some of these pieces. I finally understood what all the hype was about!

My childhood friend Nicole is a S+D stylist and she talked me into hosting and then helped me throw the perfect little show! To make the night a little more inviting for my ladies, I threw together a few easy apps, made some apple cider sangria, and burned a yummy pumpkin candle. Perfect girl’s night in!

Nicole shared her beautiful collection, offered us some tips and tricks, and gave her opinions on best-selling items and we all played dress-up with her jewels! It was so much fun! I’m going to share my 5 favorite pieces, but there are SO SO SO many more to choose from! And because I am loving their stuff so much — I want to give a piece from their line TO YOU FOR FREE!! You can enter to win these perfect little Isla Earrings on the rafflecopter at the end of this post. Entry details are below — HOWEVER — if you shop my trunk show and purchase anything you automatically get 5 extra entries!! And if you were at my actual party make sure you enter and get your 5 extra entries for your purchase! Winner will be chosen randomly on November 18 when the party closes!

You can shop my trunk show through November 17th right here. Also keep in mind — Christmas is right around the corner, so if you don’t want anything for you, now’s the chance to get some shopping done for another lady in your life!

Here’s what I am loving from Stella+Dot right now!

The Sutton Necklace – you guys, this necklace is MAGIC. I mean honestly. You can wear it 5 different ways and it is GORGEOUS! There a few variations of the necklace but my favorite is the mixed metal silver and gold one!

The Renegade Cluster Bracelet in Gold – if you follow S+D on any sort of social media you have probably seen this bracelet. I am obsessed with it. It is the PERFECT addition to any bracelet set and adds a little bit of spunk to your arm. It also comes in silver and rose gold, but you know me…gold everything always.

The Nancy Studs in peach – I bought these earrings from a friend’s trunk show and I wear them EVERY SINGLE DAY. They are my favorite go-to stud earrings and they go with EVERYTHING! They come in two other colors but I loved the peachy-pink tinge these had!

The Kaia Pendant – I probably wouldn’t have even thought twice about this necklace until Nicole told me to try it on. YOU. GUYS. This necklace is EVERYTHING. It is the perfect balance of making a bold statement while remaining low-key and classy. The pendant itself is backed with real leather so as to not ruin your shirt or scratch your skin when you wear it and it looks GORGEOUS on. Definitely will be using my hostess credits for this pretty!

The Signature Engravable Bar Necklace in Gold – I LOVE this necklace. It is the perfect piece to layer with your other necklaces while holding some sort of meaning at the same time. The bar necklace is engravable at no extra charge and is the perfect little piece to carry a special date, your name, an initial, map coordinates, or whatever else might be meaningful to you. Like I said before, I love this necklace layered with other pieces but it’s also the perfect little pop of pretty by itself for a busy day of errands.
