Jada Pinkett Smith Wears Stella & Dot Jewelry on New TV Show ‘Gotham’

FOX is rolling out a new TV series Gotham, and Will Smith’s actress wife, Jada Pinkett Smith, is casted to play Penguin’s boss, Fish Mooney. Her red short hair and bold ensembles really showcase her character’s qualities. They pretty much portray her as being a badass boss. And it’s awesome.

Jada’s character Fish Mooney was recently spotted wearing the gold Pegasus Necklace from Stella & Dot on a recent episode of Gotham. The statement necklace features an intricate big of hand sewn feathers on to silk organza, so it’s lightweight and surprisingly easy to wear. [Fox TV show Gotham, Season 1, Episode 2; Monday, September 29, 2014]

Screen shot 2014-10-09 at 11.23.09 PMThis necklace is a celeb fave, and has also been seen on Kathie Lee Gifford, Kim and Kourtney Kardashian, Bachelorette’s Molly Mesnick, and in magazines such as InStyle and Lucky.

Molly Mesnick Wearing Stella & Dot Necklace on Bachelor in Paradise Finale

Some found drama, while others found love. Sigh. The finale of Bachelor in Paradise was a little underwhelming for me, buuut…. I like it that way. It means that the show was a little more ‘reality’ than ‘tv’ and that’s fine by me. I liked that the previous (and successful) Bachelor and Bachelorette couples made an appearance on the finale to give some love and relationship advice – very cute.

Oh, and speaking of cute. Did you see Molly Mesnick on the finale? Side braid, red lips and light blue halter dress? Umm, hi! Molly looked gorgeous! And to top it all off, she wore the Elodie Statement Necklace from Stella & Dot – a smashing combo of silver with yellow-lime and blue stones. A true stunner. Just like Molly!

Natalie Morales Wearing Stella & Dot Necklace

New anchor Natalie Morales was spotted wearing Stella & Dot jewelry again on camera on the NBC morning talk show The Today Show. She wore the edgy Cassady Collar Necklace from Stella & Dot, but paired it with a soft pink blouse to soften it a bit. I love this combo. The statement necklace is very versatile because it has both silver and gold metals, so it goes with everything!

Bachelorette Andi Dorfman Wearing Stella & Dot Bracelet on “After The Final Rose”

Yayyy! I think we can all agree that Josh is a great match for Andi from this season of The Bachelorette. Sometimes – well, many times! – I don’t see the love between the two contestants. But I do have to say that I think Andi and Josh are truly in love and very happy with each other. I think it’s reflected through their actions, especially on tonight’s “After the Final Rose.”

Nick came out and revealed some private details about his and Andi’s relationship (such a no-no!). But Andi took it in stride, and responded with grace, honesty and dignity (how she’s handled most everything on the Bachelor/Bachelorette franchise, in my opinion).

Andi looked especially stunning, wearing a short, revealing lace dress from Lover (which, by the way, is a whopping $1,150!)… But fear not. You can have a piece of Andi’s style for much, much less than that.

Andi wore the Stella & Dot Amelie Sparkle Bracelet with her thousand dollar dress on the Bachelorette’s “After the Final Rose” finale episode. [ABC's The Bachelorette, Monday, July 28, 2014, After the Final Rose]. The bracelet is super sparkly, fun and pretty… For a not-so-whopping $39. It also comes in gold & peach (like a rose gold) and silver & grey.

See what other Stella & Dot jewelry Andi has worn on her season of The Bachelorette!

HDSDI Bag Mentioned as Summer Must-Have by Annalee of “Hello Handbag”

My girl Annalee Shelton from Hello, Handbag mentioned the best-selling How Does She Do It Bag as one of her summer must-haves! Thanks for the shout out, Anna! xo Read the original post HERE on her blog.

Four perfect bags for summer outings

I love the summer! This season, my dogs and I pack up and head out of doors as much as possible. Here’s what I carry when I go…

To a bbq:
BBQs are my favorite! I usually bring a bottle of wine or two, so I carry a big tote. My go to is this beautiful Michael Kors Saffiano.

http://hellohandbag.blogspot.com/2013/07/current-obsession-michael-kors-saffiano.html

To the park:
On Saturday mornings I often go to The Trails, a tiny cafe in Griffith Park. I usually take a durable crossbody, like the Whipstitch Crossbody Saddle Bag ($49 at Urban Outfitters). It keeps my hands free to pick up the delicious apple pie from the window, and can keep up if I decide to go hiking to work off that whipped cream I ordered.

http://www.yelp.com/biz/the-trails-los-angeles

To Disneyland:
For a day at Disneyland I carry a big crossbody with a zipper. It has to carry water bottles, layers of clothing, and lots of sunscreen! It needs to be lightweight, and it has to let me have my hands free. I usually take my favorite Susan Nichole Blossom, it’s a vegan leather bag with pockets you won’t believe. Unfortunately it’s not available anymore, but I was thrilled to see the Skylar on sale for just $38!

http://hellohandbag.blogspot.com/2013/08/review-susan-nichole-blossom.html

To the movies outdoors:
When we go the any of the outdoor movies in LA, we really do it up! We clear out all the cheese, crackers, munchies and wine at Trader Joes. You need a big bag to fit all that! I carry my trusty “How Does She Do It” by Stella & Dot, seriously best purchase ever. I love the stripes, and it has a water bottle holder inside that’s just brilliant. The How Does She Do It is only $89, and if you get one right now you also get a free Detachable Strap which would be great for keeping your hands free hauling all that food in!

Extra bonus! A calendar of ALL the outdoor movies in LA!

What do you carry over the summer?

Bachelorette Andi Dorfman Wearing Stella & Dot Blue Earrings

I am such a hopeless romantic. I’m such a sucker for goofy guys, and this week’s episode of The Bachelorette delivered some romance and sap… along with some, um, drama, too. Ha! But who can resist nine hot guys acting like a mime? With full face paint? And stripes? In France?

Bachelorette Andi Dorfman had a ball with the guys while they learned how to mime in France, during week 5 of seson 10 of The Bachelorette. And she looked darn good, too. She wore a white lace top with light blue calceldony stone earrings from Stella & Dot (the stone looks like an aquamarine, but it’s a gorgeous, light blue, aqua colored semi-precious stone).

Get the earrings here for just $49!

What to Wear on Summer Weekends

Memorial Day is behind us… So what does that mean? It’s summer! Well, it’s unofficially summer, but the sun is shining, the weather is warm and  summer festivities are ahead of us. Here are some suggestions on what to wear to this summer on your fabulous, fun, relaxing weekends. Whether you are headed to a bridal shower, BBQ, concert, park or girls night out, I have a fashionable outfit suggestion for you!

~ Cheers to a fabulous, stylish and super fun summer! ~

 

Screen Shot 2014-05-16 at 3.27.15 PMA summer BBQ calls for a casual and comfortable look. Start with a breezy summer dress and your trusty denim jacket. Then layer a few delicate necklace, like the On the Mark Arrow necklace and Celia Pendant – it’s a great way to add sophistication to your favorite outdoor ensemble without adding bulk. The Jacinthe bracelet and Monterey Hoop earrings are a great way to finish the look. The last step: don’t forget your fave flat sandals. And keep it simple with by only bringing the essentials in a cross body bag or a small wallet. Your margarita never looked so stylish!

Look “pastel perfect” with this bright yellow top and a turquoise pop from the Elodie Statement Necklace. Heels and a blazer make this chic enough for a nice evening out, but the boyfriend jeans (a great summer staple) and the neutral Avalon Perforated Tote keep it casual.  This look gives a warm weather refresh to your favorite year-long staples. You’re ready for girls night or a movie date with your honey.

Screen shot 2014-05-28 at 10.37.57 AM
If you’re headed to a summer concert or outdoor event, bring a scarf for breezy nights and wear your trusty sneakers to protect your pretty pedi.

Stella & Dot Highlighted on Fast Company

How Stella & Dot Is Giving Old-Fashioned Direct Sales A Mobile Makeover

How a doing-it-all mom became an entrepreneur–and uses tech savvy and common sense to keep her business running.

When she founded Stella & Dot in 2003, Herrin had envisioned it as a direct sales company that would give its sales people, called “stylists,” a way to live balanced flexible entrepreneurial lives. Based on her own experience, she knew things had to change if she wanted to really scale the business.

In the past year in particular, Herrin has given the old-fashioned direct sales model a mobile makeover. And it’s working. Stella & Dot has 16,000 active stylists around the world and in 2013, the company made more than $220 million in sales, up from $100 million the previous year–thanks in large part to the company’s massive mobile push and integration of new technology.

Stella & Dot is what Herrin calls an “omni-channel business”–one that blends the in-person experience with technology. “For a lot of e-commerce companies, their challenge is competing with a company like Amazon. That’s why omni-channel retail can stand apart. It has something Amazon can never offer–a warm body on the end of each sale,” she says. “The use of technology has really unlocked how profitable this business can be.”

Here are four ways Herrin has worked mobile technology into her business model to help grow the company.

A virtual community with on-the-go training.

How do you train 16,000 stylists spread around the world? Stella & Dot has online affinity groups including ones for military spouses, stylists of color, stylists over 50, and the list goes on.

But the company uses more than just social media to connect stylists. Last month, it launched a mobile-optimized “Stylist Lounge,” which gives stylists mobile access to notifications, weekly training videos, peer-to-peer online training, and specific tools depending on how long they have been selling with Stella & Dot.

When new stylists log in, for example, they are given step-by step guidance on how to create their website, send their first trunk-show invitation, and make their first hostess call. More seasoned stylists in charge of teams can access business insights about their team and all stylists can easily choose and share from a collection of customized social media messages. “What used to be a log in and click, click, click is now a swipe and a tap,” says Herrin, who calls the mobile push an “on my phone or bust” model.

Staying lean and savvy about inventory.

Direct-sales models often require sellers to have inventory on hand to sell to customers, which means unsold stuff can quickly start to pile up in their closets. Instead of doing this, Stella & Dot uses trunk shows to test inventory. Last year, the company launched an iPad app for stylists called Dottie that not only allows them to place orders directly to the distribution center in real time when a customer makes a purchase, but also includes tons of images of products that might not be on hand.

The danger, of course, is that the human connection the company so values could be compromised by stylists having screens in front of their faces. But it’s a worry that’s been taken into account when designing the app. “We’ve obsessed over the ease of use,” says Herrin. “We want it to be intuitive so that it doesn’t take away from the human connection.”

Another addition is the social media group called the Style Council, made up of hundreds of the company’s top sellers. The group has direct access to the design and merchandizing teams and votes on the pieces in each season’s collection that are showcased most prominently. “The feedback is very constant in real time,” says Herrin.

Getting orders out instantaneously.

Gone are the days of driving around with trunks full of inventory to deliver. The Dottie app includes a form customers fill out when placing an order, which then gets directly sent to the distribution center. Before that was created, stylists had to keep track of orders on paper that they might not have a chance to submit until the following day. The automated form also lets customers double-check their information, which cuts down on mistakes.

A built-in marketing machine.

At Stella & Dot, stylists play a huge role in marketing. They upload trunk-show photos to the Stella & Dot Instagram feed and are encouraged to post about their work on Facebook. But social media aside, the company has also created a mobile notification that pings stylists when orders are shipped, including the names and notes they took on the customers who made purchases. They can then tap on their phone numbers to make a follow-up call.

Bottom Line: “Our mobile tool isn’t just about sales or transactions. It makes our stylists better at customer service,” says Herrin. “We are using the combination of high tech and high touch to do better merchandizing.”

Become A Stella & Dot Stylist This Spring & Receive $100 Extra in FREE Jewelry!

Just about six years ago, I went to a book signing in Southern CA and stumbled upon Stella & Dot. I had no idea what I was in for, but I had a feeling it was something great. I didn’t even wait a full 12 hours before I signed up the very next morning! Hehe. I figured I didn’t have much to lose… Give it a shot for $199? Why the heck not, I thought.

Fast forward to today and I work about 30 hours per week as a Director with this amazing company, and I’m earning more than I would be earning if I worked a 9-to-5.

That being said, more than half of our Stylists work their Stella & Dot on the side of another full-time job and/or alongside being a mom. They find great joy in calling something “their own,” meeting new people, and styling women. Stella & Dot — whether done full-time or part-time — has added joy, fun, & positivity to the lives of many women (and a few good men!) and it just might be the same for you, too!

ABOUT HOLLYROD FOUNDATION:

Inspired by a father and a son, HollyRod Foundation was formed in 1997 by actress,Holly Robinson Peete and her husband former NFL quarterback Rodney Peete. TheHollyRod Foundation is dedicated to providing compassionate care to those living with autism and Parkinson’s disease.

Efforts of the HollyRod Foundation are providing a better quality of life for individuals and their families.
Autism affects 1 in 88 children, 1 in 54 boys, and can decimate families physically, emotionally and most of all
financially.

HollyRod introduced the “Give the Gift of Voice” campaign in 2010, providing tablet computers and specially‐designed apps to help give a voice to those without.  50% of children living with autism have extreme difficulty
learning to speak, 25% of them never will. While these individuals may not be able to speak, they have much to
say and through the “Give the Gift of Voice” campaign, they can now make their voice heard. The Gift of Voice
campaign was so well received, HollyRod realized they needed to find a technology partner to fulfill all the requests.
In 2013, HollyRod began a partnership with Fuhu to provide grants for the Nabi tablet. The program is fully
operational and is helping children all across the country.

HollyRod is currently developing plans to create The HollyRod Autism Network at California State University,
Northridge, a unique constellation of autism resources, services, and one‐on‐one support, all with a family‐
centered focus. As Holly says “we need to help these children live their lives and achieve their fullest potential.”

Last April, Stella & Dot raised $120,700 from the sale of signature accessories in our Autism Awareness boutique.
Stylists across the US and Canada held thousands of trunk shows to raise awareness and funds towards
compassionate care for those affected by Autism.

The funds generated from this collaboration helped to support various autism summer camps, social skills and
adolescent prevocational programs around the US and Canada. We were also able to grant more than 100 tablets
to non‐verbal children with autism giving them the “Gift of Voice”.  This year, the partnership will allow us to serve
even more children and their families, as they navigate autism’s day to day challenges.
We are very grateful for your support!

Star Magazine Features Stella & Dot Necklace

Once again, Stella & Dot is in the press and coveted by magazine editors and featured in their editorial pages. In the March 2014 issue of Star magazine (with LeAnn Rimes on the cover), the gold and peach Somervell Necklace was featured in the “Hollywood’s Rocks” style article. The necklace looks terrific layered with the Christina Link Necklace or the Mae Necklace – both of which were designed to be worn together or separately. And the Somervell is also available in gold with clear stones or silver with grey stones.

Actress Nikki Reed Seen in Stella & Dot Tia Crossbody Bag

Twilight actress Nikki Reed has been spotted all over Los Angeles carrying Stella & Dot’s best-selling Tia Crossbody Bag in two colors: Cerise (a pretty poppy, orange-red) and black and white mosaic print. The A-list star looks so cute and casual – I love how she wears this bag for every day.

The best selling Stella & Dot purse can be worn three ways: cross body bag, over the shoulder and as a clutch. It also features a zip-around zipper detail that is as cute as it is functional. It expands the bag to create extra space. And just detach the straps to carry it as a fun clutch for evening. What’s more is that the interior lining is an adorable zig zag print. It’s quite possibly the perfect, most functional addition to any woman’s wardrobe.

Get it here: Tia Crossbody Bag in Cerise, Black, and Mosaic Tile.

What I Want Now: White and Navy Stripes

There’s just something about them: the clean lines, the nod to nautical nostalgia, the crisp color combo. Stripes are loved and adored by so many, and I’m certainly one of them. I think every girl at one time or another questions the stripe — Does it make me look wide? Can I pull it off? But a good stripe story is similar to that of Goldie Locks. We all must find a stripe that isn’t too big, too little, too bright, too bland… but just right.

Just right, for me, is a about a one-inch width, navy and white in color, and has a classic but flirty attitude.

If you haven’t found your stripe yet… Consider striped accessories first. Because a striped scarf doesn’t make your arse look fat. Yes, it looks good on you. And no, you don’t look like a sailor. Well, maybe a tad…. Actually, you look just right.
