I’m a big fan of jewelry, especially anything sparkly! But when I got my TK Maxx dress, I realised that I was in trouble. I needed something much more subtle around my neck than I would normally go for, and something more striking on my wrist. Plus there was a little too much blue going on as well. As the night of the MAD’s blog award got closer I panicked!
But Katie who has just started up a Stella and Dot franchise came to my rescue with some gorgeous pieces which she leant me for the night. The great thing about the choices that she has, is that much of it is the kind of statement jewelry that I like (which brightens up an otherwise plain outfit), but they also have the more delicate options as well, unlike other companies that seem to only stick to one option. You may well have seen some Stella and Dot statement pieces if you are a fan of Xfactor as several of the singers have worn it on the show.
I don’t normally wear brooches, but that is one of the great things about the Stella and dot teams; they don’t just give you jewellery, they also give you ideas on how to wear it.
I’ve become quite keen on the idea of brooches now! I might have to take a look at my Mums old stuff hiding away in a box and see if I can work out how to wear some of it now, having been inspired by this piece.
Then she leant me a really subtle necklace (I’m normally much more bling), but it looked gorgeous with my dress as it was already very sparkly. We went for small drop earings as I have shortish hair. But then for added a touch of bling with the bracelet.
Here’s a picture of them all separately, followed by one of them on me, so that you can see what they look like …..
A HUGE thankyou to Katie for her help and loan of the gorgeous jewellery! I wouldn’t have felt so lovely on the night without it.
