Stella and Dot Is in the House – Giveaway Included

Late one night in a court yard next to acres of grape vines, I sat with a friend who shared stories behind each piece of jewelry she was wearing.

“This was my Dad’s first gift to my mother” (he had passed away).

“This ring came from Asia after the Vietnam war” and

“This was my Aunts, she passed away last Fall from cancer and wanted me to have it”.

It was memorizing, she was speaking of beautiful family heirlooms, none of them being diamonds or pearls, but each having far more (lifetime) value.

I thought about my own jewelry box. The velvet held very little. Disclosure – DH would completely disagree about griping from the lack of quantity in the velvet. He stands on the quality side of the fence and with that, yes, I am spoiled. Which perhaps brings me to my point. I felt during this Sonoma moment, a little more frosting in the velvet to someday share with my girls was needed. That night in the Napa Valley, I wished I had a bracelet to share a story about – that night became a jewelry epiphany.

Enter an Invite to a Stella Dot party from Ms. Lindsey . It was complete Kismet.

The invite was for a Stella & Dot trunk show. A new line of jewelry from Banana Republic’s ex-jewelry designer, Blythe Harris. After her stint in the corporate world she decided to start a new business. She created Stella & Dot and with her partners, an affordable jewelry line sold via personal ‘trunk shows’ was born.

So, after ‘trying-on’ numerous gorgeous pieces from the 2010 Summer Collection at Lindsey’s, I knew it was only a matter of time until I hosted my own trunk show. Besides, who doesn’t love an excuse to kiss the little people and DH nite-nite and get out to laugh a wee bit with your girlfriends.

Fast forward to last night. Jessica arrived early to set up her bling (it took 1.5 hours)

It was worth it.
