So January brings dark days and cold weather, but that doesn’t dampen the spirits of a Stella & Dot stylist like me!
This month brought me rewards, encouragement, support and more importantly a new collection The all new spring collection landed earlier this month and whilst I’ve been busy ordering new samples and booking in parties to debut the collection, I can finally take a moment and share a few of my favourite pieces from the new line.
So at the end of last year, we were given a capsule collection as a teaser of what was to come, with the Norah collection. It definitely didn’t disappoint, we were sold out on the earrings and necklace at such a fast rate, I knew it was going to be a winner.

Immediately I was struck by the colour, which I absolutely love! Freesia was noted as one of the hottest spring colours to watch in the Pantone fashion colour report for SS14, Other notable colours which have already been seen on the high street was :

The jewellery had just the right balance of metals versus colour this season, which was great as I love to have variety for my clients to see at their parties. The main colours seen this season were soft pastels and a lot of bold reds, greens and of course yellow!
One of my favourite’s this season was a beautiful statement piece called the Elodie a beautiful, mixed stoned necklace filled with soft green and coral hues.

I added the silver to my collection, I love the gorgeous black stones which give it a luxe look.
|More is more when you layer up! Somervell in silver teamed up with Sutton necklace.|
The peach version is also very beautiful and looks very elegant and will add that extra sparkle to your day or evening outfit.
A new sparkly bracelet was too introduced which will complete the somervell and look great stacked with our Stella & Dot favourites which is the Amelie available in silver, gold and peach.

One of the more long awaited pieces finally made it in to the new collection. As a stylist we are always asked for what we don’t have, one of the biggest sellers for us since Stella & Dot arrived on our shores was the very cool renegade bracelet, many have imitated but you just cannot beat the quality and craftsmanship of our best-seller.
With sales increasing for the likes of Michael Kors and Marc Jacobs I too was mesmerised by the rose gold trend (but went with gold and tortoise shell in the end!) and with that, we were pleased to show off our new rose gold renegade, the perfect accessory to wear with your watch!

The bags and scarves had new additions and saw lots of laser cut designs. What’s great about Stella & Dot is the laser cut design used on their accessories is a patented design and exclusive to them only, though with it being a growing trend I’m sure we’ll see very similar styles out on the high street.
