[now closed] GIVEAWAY: Stella & Dot!!

This giveaway is now closed!!


You all know I’m pretty obsessed with little details. And I’m also pretty obsessed with accessorizing. But what about accessorizing WITH little details? In my opinion, brooches are the lost, unsung hero of any jewelry box. A brooch has unlimited possibilities- and won’t weigh down your wrist/neck/ears. It is small and cute and can up the ante on an entire outfit.

Right now, my favorite brooch is this little bee from Stella & Dot. It is hand painted and while it is small, it makes a big statement. My friend Karen with Stella & Dot [store|facebook] was SO kind to send it to me, and I had a blast styling it:

The exciting news is that YOU have a chance to win it!! That is right, L&L is giving one lucky reader their very own Bee Brooch- courtesy of Karen with Stella & Dot [store |facebook].

  10. Cute brooch! I'd pin it to a scarf that was draped over the shoulders and use it to gather fabric from both sides in the middle.

  11. I'd also use it if I had a baggy shirt that was too big. You could gather the fabric in the back and use the brooch to pin it so it's more fitted in the front :)

  24. I'd love to use it to fasten a massive chunky knit for these winter months. It'd be a great splash of colour! I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

  34. I would put it on a head band since my (new) short hair is calling out for some sparkly additions! Plus my work wear has to be kept pretty minimal and simple, so any small flare I can add is welcome :D

    ReplyDelete
  35. I would attach it (carefully!) to a bright clutch like this (http://bit.ly/LwQJuT) Kate Spade beauty. I love bright colors and attaching it to a fun, solid color clutch of any color would be a wonderful spring/summer accessory. Accessorizing accessories with accessories? Yes please.
    Love the blog!
