I wear a ton of Stella and Dot and feature it on the blog regularly like here, here, here and here (that is just naming a few)! As you know, I really try to feature and giveaway items that make sense for this blog and Stella and Dot makes perfect sense! If I can also highlight a friend…the feature gets that much better…..
This is my beautiful (inside and out) friend Lindsey. We met years ago when we both cheered professionally for one of my favorite NFL teams, The Philadelphia Eagles! Three seasons, a few years, two babies (mine), one glorious wedding (hers) and many memories later we are still dear friends:) We have decided to partner up and bring you this INCREDIBLE giveaway but more than that, she is sharing her Stella and Dot story and hopefully inspiring some of you along the way. I hope that you will pop by her shopping site when you are looking for beautiful affordable accessories:) So without further adieu…..meet Lindsey. Unfairly gorgeous, I know!
Q: What can you share with my readers about yourself?
A: I am an almost “thirty-something,” happily married, Jersey Girl – born and raised! For the past 6 years, however, I have become a traveling gypsy due to my husband’s career. Being a “baseball wife,” I have become a professional packer, a professional traveler, a professional mover, and for the second time in my life – a professional cheerleader! My very large and extremely close-nit family and my hysterical and fabulous beyond words group of girlfriends mean everything to me! Fashion and jewelry tak a close third in my world of obsessions!
Q: Why Stella and Dot?
A: To be frank, two reasons… One, I was obsessed with Stella and Dot’s product, and I just wanted to be a “hobbyist” (receiving the discount)! Two, I couldn’t go to a baseball game 7 days a week anymore. I needed something for MYSELF, that I could do wherever we were located. I travel approx. 4-8 times a month (every month), and I have moved 19 times in the last 6 years (my husband has been with 7 different organizations). Needless to say, the “baseball life” is a very blessed lifestyle in certain aspects, but it is also an extremely uncertain and stressful lifestyle in many other aspects. Never in my wildest dreams when I signed up to become a Stella and Dot Stylist and to do something “just for me” did I think I would be finding the dream job of a lifetime. I started off doing this for “fun money.” In just a year and a half…I have triple promoted to Associate Director, I have a team with over 25 amazing ladies beside me, and my money is still super FUN…but, it is also paying the bills! Bonus points…their product just keeps getting better and better with each new line!
Q: Why did you choose this particular bag to gift to one of my lucky readers?
A: I wanted to feature our La Totale Tote in Espresso Ikat simply because I am completely smitten with this bag! From quality to functuality to style to price point…this tote is everything! I’m constantly being stopped on the street and even being asked, “is that Louis Vuitton?!”…I knew right away this bag was a showstopper! One of a kind. It doubles as a “mommy bag” for all of my lady friends with kiddos, it’s PERFECTION for traveling, and yet, it’s still super chic!
