Wow, has it been that long since I last posted? Hope you didn’t miss me too much! Apologies for my absence in this small corner of the bloggersphere – I’ve been somewhat distracted!
But I’m back and with a bang too! The end of last month saw the launch of the AW13 collection from Stella & Dot.
This coincided with our annual sales conference which was in 3 words – Amazing, inspiring and a whole lot of FUN! With the collection available to view and try on, it definitely helped me decide what new pieces I was going to add to my ever growing collection of samples!
So where to begin, the new collection, brought style, versatility and lots of colour for the new season ahead.
My personal favourite and had me very excited was the stunning Frida Necklace
Inspired by the artist and legend Frida Kahlo
the Frida necklace is, loud, proud and bursting with colour! With a mixture of soft peach tones against the deep blues and turquoise this necklace makes a statement for sure!
I wore it out the other day just to the local shops (I just wanted an excuse to wear it asap) and I found myself stopped by women asking me about the necklace. One woman proceeded to follow me through 2 shops just so she could show her sister! I never mind, it proves that as a statement necklace it’s doing it’s job and looking fabulous at the same time!
Another favourite is the Kahlo collection a luxe set enriched with mixed metals and sparkling crystals giving it that extra WOW factor.
I always felt that when it came to mixed metals there was a little gap which as a stylist can prove a little tricky especially for certain clients that want just that bit more! But the design team have finally filled the void and brought this amazing show stopper. I have the bracelet which is a statement piece on its own, but at the viewing I just couldn’t help myself in trying on the necklace!
With new purses, scarves and now cases for the modern woman to carry her ipad in, the collection was the biggest one I’ve seen since becoming a stylist. It would seem that we generally release 2 major collections each year with 2-3 capsule collections in between.
I could go on about all the different pieces but I’ve highlighted a few – all are available to buy online at my online boutique
You can see bold colours and mixed metals will most definitely be playing a big part of your Autumn/Winter wardrobe! I’ve already had my eye on a few key items of clothing and footwear which I know will look amazing with my new jewellery and accessories!
In my next few blogs I’m going to focus on 1 or 2 pieces in particular the amazing Sutton Necklace
which is a fantastic piece of jewellery and at such great value for money as it is 5 necklaces in 1 and yep I’ve tried and tested all 5 ways and they look fabulous!
Remember you don’t have to host a party to get your hands on these fantastic accessories, you can shop online from the UK and NI via my online store
Why not pop over there now and see the whole AW13 collection.
Leave me a little note and tell me what your favourite piece is!
Until next time lovelies!
