Recently, the corporate team at Stella & Dot asked Stylists to share on social media why we style. Reading the posts of why other Stylists style is so inspiring! To see the posts search #whyistyle or #sdjoy on Instagram.
There are several reasons why I style. As a working mom of 2 boys with a busy PR firm, I used to crave time outside my home office to connect with other women. Being a Stylist lets me connect with other women in many ways - both in our Stylist community through the amazing friendships I've made, and through the people I've met by doing trunk show styling sessions at their homes. These 90-minute styling sessions aren't just about the jewelry (though that's a major perk!), it provides connections around kitchen tables and in living rooms with women I wouldn't likely have met without being a Stella & Dot Stylist.
Another reason I style is the flexibility to be home when my boys get home from school to simply enjoy the blessings that "ordinary days" of childhood offer. Helping with their homework, reading with them, going for a walk, making cookies... and just "being there" is so important to me. I don't want to miss out on these moments and since I make my own schedule, I don't have to.
Being a Stylist also gives me confidence. I am up-to-date on all the current trends in accessories and get fashion tips from our home office, including regular updates from our Chief Creative Officer, Blythe Harris as well as our our Style Director, Rachel Suter. Gone are the days when I thought I could never pull off a statement necklace over an animal print paired with a bright sweater. I feel "cuter" and more pulled together which leads to a confidence that pours into my everyday life.
The reason Stella & Dot Stylists style are all so very different. What will be yours?
