DC Style Watch: Layer it up!

I’m excited!! Today we announce our Stella & Dot Vintage Twist bracelet giveaway winner from last week’s post!

The entries are in, the name has been chosen, and the winner is . . .

TIFFANY… Congratulations Tiffany!!!


DONDRA… Congratulations to you as well!!!

I decided to pull TWO names and give away TWO bracelets.  Tiffany and Dondra,  you both “liked” my Stella & Dot fanpage and you both left notes saying you liked the silver version of the Vintage Twist from my e-boutique!!

Message me your shipping addresses at elegantcoretta@gmail.com and by this time next week you’ll be walking around in your boutique jewels!  And, stay tuned for another upcoming huge giveaway!  I’m spreading the Stella & Dot love, ya’ll!

This is the Silver Vintage Twist Bracelet that the ladies won! Wonder what they are going to wear it with?

Friends, this bracelet is one of those pieces that is worn perfect day or night, alone or as a layering piece. For the past few seasons, the layering trend in particular has resurged on the runways. It’s a great look for your personal wardrobe that really brings the exclamation mark to a clothing ensemble.  Y’know, that pop!

Now, I know there will be some fab necklaces and earrings in the following pictures, but try to focus on the layered bracelets for a second before you check everything out at my e-boutique.

For those of you who love the Vintage Twist bracelet from the giveaway, it can create an uber stylish/”young Hollywood” look when worn with a leather band or spiked jewelry (see below).

Now, I don’t know about you, but I’ll be the first to admit that I was tardy for the layering party. Yes, I’d wear bangles that came in stacks of multiples, but typically I wore single bracelets alone and it didn’t really occur to me to pair them up until I saw how easy and creative it was with my Stella & Dot pieces.

Your mission:  Show off your imagination by mixing and matching your arm candy.  You can even post your signature style on the Stella & Dot corporate facebook fan page .  You might be our next style muse!

Your jewelry girl,

Coretta Johnson Gray, Stella & Dot Independent Stylist
