San Francisco-based social shopping startup Stella & Dot has a unique business model. Founded by entrepreneur Jessica Herrin, the company provides women with the opportunity to become independent stylists and sell the brand's one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories through in-home trunk shows and online. Their designs, which are all under $300, have been featured on the pages of Vogue and Lucky, and worn by stars like Katy Perry and Fergie.
To toast the launch of their spring 2012 collection, yesterday Stella & Dot invited a group of LA jewelry fiends to makeup and beauty lounge Blushington for a night of treats, touch-ups and adornments. We stopped by to check out the brand's latest range, which includes a nice mix of grab-and-go pieces for everyday wear and statement numbers to show off in. The s'more cupcakes and free Blushington makeup applications offered at the event weren't so bad, either.
