{swank}review & giveaway: stella & dot

CONTEST CLOSED!  Congratulations to Sarah Hood - she won a $50 Stella & Dot gift certificate courtesy of stylist Stacy Williams!

I have been obsessed with Stella & Dot for a couple years now after a close friend of mine introduced me to the company.  How can a woman not be obsessed with necklaces, earrings, rings, purses - you name it!  So you can imagine my excitement when Stella & Dot stylist Stacy Williams contacted me to host this stylish giveaway opportunity!

Stacy Williams

Stacy signed up with Stella & Dot approximately 4 years ago with the intention of earning some side money to support her designer shoe and clothing habit.  She was already a jewelry fanatic and thought Stella & Dot would be a great way for her to earn it for free and half price, all while making cash to spend on other things {like designer shoes and clothes!}.  Her Stella & Dot "hobby" turned out to be so fun and lucrative that Stacy now runs her business full-time.

Stella & Dot just released their Summer 2012 Collection and, let me tell you, it is drool worthy.  I am loving the bright colours that have me dreaming of a tropical island vacation.  One of my favourite pieces from this collection is the Palamino Necklace with gold and coral detailing :

Palamino Necklace - $144

Since the necklace is heavily detailed, I would wear it together with a classic pair of gold studs, such as the Essential Ball Studs {as seen in InStyle}:
Essential Ball Studs - $39
And a Lindsay Bangle {multiple colours} in Orange:

Lindsay Bangle - $64

I am more of a earring girl so I couldn't help but drool over the Capri Chandelier Earrings {$54}, Marchesa Studs {$32} and Charlize Teardrop Earrings {$39}.  Can you see a {turquoise} pattern here?!  I also love the Bianca Tassel Necklace {$144} and Paige Enamel Bracelet {$64} - swoon.

All prices quoted above are in Canadian dollars.
