My Top 5 Stella & Dot Necklaces for Spring

Share Button

The new spring 2014 Stella & Dot line is out and I do have my favorites — however, I also like some of the classics such as the Pegasus which I think is one of the most epic pieces they have EVER created!

The truth is  — I am a bit of a Stella & Dot junkie. Good thing my friend and dealer stylist Kristin helps feed my addiction, otherwise I’m not sure what I would do!

Here are a few of my favorites for this season.

I know. I KNOW! And that’s my sweet girl in the Medina — because she’s too good for a cloth bib —  hahaha! Can you imagine?

Each piece is so beautiful and there is something so special about each one.
