I recently had the opportunity to travel to Dallas to celebrate the opening of the first ever Stella & Dot Pop Up Shop! For those of you new to Stella & Dot, they are a lifestyle brand whose mission is to give every woman the means to style her own life. Every purchase supports an independent woman in business, her local community, and Stella & Dot's greater goal to create flexible income for women around the world. So you know I am ALL about a company that is all about women! The big deal about the Pop Up Shop is that traditionally all Stella & Dot products are sold through a stylist and not at a brick and mortar!
I was first introduced to Stella & Dot by my best friend, Charlotte. She has a been a stylist with S&D for five years and rocks her business as her full-time gig. She suggested (many times) that I incorporate Stella & Dot into my business here on MHM and I am so glad I did. I have been wearing the product for years, so it made perfect sense for me to share it! In fact, most of the jewelry and accessory pieces I wear are from Stella & Dot. SO if you are curious about hosting a trunk show and earning free jewelry (you can even host an online show) click here. If you are curious if a Stella & Dot side hustle is right for you, feel free to send me an email through my contact page OR you can read more about it here.
Now, back to the Pop Up Shop! The Stella & Dot team did such a phenomenal job of bringing the brands feminine vibe to life in Dallas. I could have stayed there and sipped lattes/ champagne while chatting with my new friends all. day. long.
One of my favorite vignettes was the “behind the design” display where they showed the sketched designs from Blythe Harris, Chief Creative Officer & Co-founder. I loved seeing the concept in a sketched drawing, then seeing the finished product! After meeting and speaking with Blythe about the designs, you can tell that she and the award-winning design team put their hearts and souls into making sure each piece is functional and beautiful. They think about every detail, creating custom facets for each stone, beading by hand, and fabricating unique metal components you won't find anywhere else.
One of the other things that I loved was that they included a wall of retired pieces from previous collections! It's always so fun to see how style evolves over the years.
Overall, my favorite part of the entire trip was meeting and getting to know the other ladies at the Pop Up Shop. It is so apparent that Stella & Dot is a sisterhood of women who are all about empowering women to succeed on their own terms and that is something to be celebrated.
The Pop Up Shop Will Be Open in Dallas from MARCH 22 – APRIL 20, 2019
3010 N HENDERSON AVE. DALLAS, TEXAS
Thank you so much to Stella & Dot for hosting me!
