Rockin' My S&D Everyday


It has been almost five years since I signed up to be a Stella & Dot Stylist. It has been fun and I have met many wonderful people and women thru marketing the pieces and doing trunk shows. I have had supportive friends and family and had eight women on my team at one point. Nowadays, I haven't had the time to invest in this business but I love the flexibility of it. My site is up 24-hours a day and I am a walking billboard with all the pieces I wear every single day. I either post pics on my Facebook page or via my Instagram (user: bappletree).

The new Summer Collection just launched and I made a few purchases. I have tons of samples still and have tried to sell them thru friends and family, the few trunk shows I do do and via my Facebook page. But I wanted new pieces to add to my very large collection, especially with my new adventure happening at DWSF in San Francisco. I alerted my cousin of my recent shopping spree and she said I need to 'model' them. Oh, the selfies. Sick of them yet? Well, it seems to be the best way to show how I wear these gorgeous and fun pieces and what I pair them with and where I wear them to. I can't say I go to anyone's blog for their OOTD (Outfit of the Day) posts and I wouldn't expect you to come to mine to see what I'm wearing that day. I have a simple kind of style but I like to be bold with my jewelry and my shoes. I wear A LOT of black so when shopping, I try to make it a point to stay away from that appealing color and add more vibrant colors to my wardrobe. But funny how one of my favorite stores is White House Black Market. I can't stay away. They have a lot of my money and I get nice discounts. I actually have to thank the S&D sponsor I was under for turning me onto WHBM. Her name is Natalie and she posted this one black dress with white polka dots and  a big floppy hat.  It was adorable. So I guess posting what you're wearing does indeed influence people. I am just making the disclaimer that I do not think I'm 'Miss Fashionable' or that people should dress like me. I am just sharing the jewelry and yes, sometimes what I'm wearing makes me feel pretty and I want to share. Do you mind?

Here are some pics I've posted in the past. The jewelry is all Stella & Dot and may or may not be available today. But if you love the piece, make me an offer. I might be willing to part with it.

Can't remember the name of the hoops but they are discontinued and I lost them. So sad.
