Stella & Dot

This past weekend, I hosted a Stella & Dot Trunk Show for our CP Moms Group!

I love the Stella & Dot brand. They have an innovative social shopping concept. If women got together to design their dream job, this is what it would look like! The mission of Stella & Dot is to give every woman the means to style her own life. They have a vision of the world where strong women live bold and joyful lives. Doesn't that sound wonderful?!

It was the perfect opportunity for our group of Moms to get together. In our busy lives, it is important to take time out for ourselves. We spend the majority of our time caring for our children with special needs, and it can be challenging. An evening spent with other Moms who know what we're going through can be just what we need to recharge and refuel. And what's more fun than playing with jewelry and browsing the latest trends?

Our stylist for the evening was Pamela Meester, independent stylist for Stella & Dot. Pam also happens to be an Aunt to a sweet little boy with cerebral palsy.

Pam shared with me how working with Stella & Dot has enriched her own life -

"Being involved in such an exciting opportunity has brought out passion and motivation in me that I had never anticipated.  It has allowed me to bring together my love of fashion and friendship, but it has also given me flexibility to work while staying at home with my 16 month old.  Stella & Dot is more than just fashion, it is an amazing community of women who support and motivate each other to live happy and joyful lives and I am lucky to be able to share this opportunity with others.  On top of that, it warms my heart to be able to give back to the community through the Stella & Dot Foundation, which to date has raised over $1.6 million towards causes such as Breast Cancer and Autism Awareness." 

We had a wonderful evening! Thirteen women - all mothers to children with disabilities and complex medical needs - bonding and building friendships; offering support and being supported. Connecting with other Moms and building a supportive community is a necessity when we are in the trenches of the challenging yet ever so rewarding job of raising our families.
