Last Minute Holiday Gift Guides

Think it is too late to do your Holiday shopping online and you will have to face the crowded malls to avoid being empty-handed on Christmas? Think again!

If you are a procrastinator like me, I have great news! I have compiled two gift guides with items that are guaranteed to arrive before Christmas.

A little trick to save you even more time is to enter the shipping address of the lucky ones who will receive your gift. A lot of items already come beautifully packaged, such as Stella & Dot, or companies offer wrapping as an add-on to your order.

Wishing you Happy Holidays and successful last-minute shopping!

Delicate Statement Necklaces

One question that I always hear as a Stella & Dot stylist is about my own favorite jewelry pieces. So today I want to show you some of my all time favorite accessories that I can’t live without.

I love big statement necklaces and the way they can transform even the most bland outfits. However, as they can be cumbersome to wear all day, I usually prefer delicate jewelry on the daily. Cue, my favorite delicate statement necklaces!
Just as big statement necklaces, their smaller cousins pack a big punch, but are much smaller and easier to wear. Another advantage of delicate necklaces is that they don’t overpower petite ladies, and still have a great impact on the outfit.

Here I am sharing my two favorite delicate necklaces that I simply don’t want to take off:

The gold plated Stone Tile Necklace with hand-set lapis stones is a stunner dressed up or down. Wear it with a neutral colored shirt for a casual look, or pair it with a royal blue lace top as I did for the biggest impact.

I adore how the different shades of blue complement each other, while the sparkle adds just the right amount of glam to this beauty. But my favorite part about this micro-mosaic necklace is its 2-in-1 versatility: By detaching the bottom pendant it converts into a more subtle arc necklace, and gives you even more ways to incorporate it into your wardrobe.

The second delicate statement necklace is a silver-plated collar necklace, with the perfectly fitting name “Swag”. The modern and sleek style can match a variety of  outfits, while always adding an understated elegance. A semi-precious howlite triangle shaped drop makes this show-stopper even more special.

Since these necklaces are so delicate, there is little risk of “overdoing” it with accessories. Thus, I like to finish my jewelry look with silver hoop earrings and a bracelet stack, as I am sporting the “Swag” collar.

When wearing the Stone Tile necklace, I love picking up the turquoise color and match with the same color ring and studs. But, of course, it is always a chic choice to let the necklace speak on its own.
