Stella & Dot: Shopping for Summer Accessories

Anyone who knows me knows that I dream of shopping in luxury, with a glass of champagne in one hand, dainty eats in the other, and an array of beautiful items to peruse. So when one of my University friends asked if I would be interested in having a Stella & Dot shopping party, naturally I got super excited. For those of you who haven't heard of Stella & Dot, they are a jewelry company who have individual stylists who  help you host a trunk show, where you can get together with your friends, family, anyone you want, and shop their newest collections in your home. The lovely ladies Chantale, Shivani, Victoria, Rebecca (of Rebecca Elizabeth Designs), Irene, Alison (of Styling My Life blog), our stylist Shannon, and my mom all came to join in on the afternoon of shopping and treats.

I was very glad to finally get a chance to use some of the pins from my Fashionable Eats board on Pinterest for the event!  With the help of my photographer/bestie, we decided on a list of girly and delectable treats: citrus sangria, lavender lemonade, earl grey scones with devonshire and jam, meringue with whipped cream and raspberries, cucumber sandwiches, and lavender cupcakes with vanilla bean frosting. YUM.

It was a truly delightful afternoon of girl time, and of course, we all walked away with some stunning new jewelry that will be sure to be show stoppers! I decided on some serious statement pieces: a necklace called the Olivia Bib, and another called the Juniper, as well as a simple yet feminine Camilla cocktail ring. These are going to be great for adding some colour to plain tops and dresses this summer! 

The moral of the story? Girly days like these are a must!

Doesn't Irene just look amazing? I couldn't get over her sassy glasses and trendy collar!
