Giveaway Preview #9: Wendy Needham, Stella & Dot

{To celebrate of the 5-year anniversary of Less Ordinary Designs, I'm hosting a huge set of giveaways November 12 - 16.  Throughout this week, I'm featuring all of our participating vendors!}


I became acquainted with Wendy Needham a few years ago when she became one of my customers (and referred lots of other customers to me)!  She's so fun to work with!

Wendy is an independent stylist for Stella & Dot, a boutique style brand sold exclusively online and through trunk shows.  With a design house in New York City, and corporate offices in San Francisco, she sell jewelry, scarves, leather goods and now the most amazing soy candles.  Stella & Dot offers amazing quality jewelry that you would find in many of the top department stores, but for a fraction of the price.  Over 50% of their line is under $50.   

I can imagine that you've probably already heard of Stella & Dot, because I've never met anyone who doesn't love their jewelry!  I actually had another Stella & Dot representative approach me about participating in this giveaway, too!  Everyone loves this stuff!

Wendy got involved with Stella & Dot in 2011.  She says:
"After heading to Scottsdale for a long weekend with my very best friends in April of 2011, they all convinced me to come home and do something that would give me the chance to help women feel beautiful.  We poured over a Stella & Dot lookbook, and each of them said that they would love to be able to help me launch my business by hosting a trunk show.  My husband was completely on board, especially after he saw how much fun I was having!"

Boutique style jewelry and leather goods, as well as the most beautiful scarves that are made by the same hands making pieces for Coach, Kate Spade and Marc Jacobs!  The jewelry has been seen on countless celebrities such as Selma Blair, Jennie Garth, Fergie, and more!  It is constantly featured in Glamour, Lucky and Instyle weekly and is one of Fortune 500's fastest growing companies!

Wendy has a tendency to love timeless classic style, with a pop of color and or pattern.  This is true when it comes to her house, her clothing and her jewelry.  She loves to invest in something that is well made and gorgeous, knowing that she will get the most creative use out of it for years to come.  Stella & Dot is her perfect match.
