This is the first Stella & Dot trunk show I ever attended in 2012. It was hosted by a friend at her apartment in collaboration with a Stella & Dot stylist from Frankfurt.
The event was nothing more than meeting up with the girls over cupcakes and cakes, healthy drinks, and a good chitchat. Each girl brought their own treat, it was like a potluck.
Everyone had fun! The girls went home that afternoon happy from bonding with the girls and their chosen accessory already on the way to delivery. The host made some money but was more glad that most of her purchases ended up free because of the commissions she made from her pals´ purchases. But the real winner is the stylist. For a two-to-three-hour-collaboration, she made quite an income.
She wasn´t doing it full-time though. It was her part-time job which she does during weekends and holidays. Basically, whenever she wants.
But there are many stay-at-home women who are doing styling as a full-time job. They started with a noble capital, $199 sign up fee, and built their empire up.
Do you have a knack on styling? Why is Stella & Dot styling a doable fashion business for you?
1. Love what you do.
If you have a big love for fashion and style, doing styling as a business doesn´t feel like working. You love what you do, you´re having so much fun, and your time is very flexible.
2. Requires very small start-up capital.
For a $199 sign up fee you´ll get a basic kit which you can retail for $800. And if you sign up this February you´ll get a fabulous tote bag bonus.
With that revenue you can step up your capital to Essentials, $499, which you can get back for $2000 in sales, or you better opt for the Business Builder, $699, which you can recover from a good $2500 value on sales.
3. Online or offline styling options.
As a stylist you´ll share fabulous accessories and offer personal styling experience on Trunk Shows which you can do online or offline. If you already have a fashion blog (or thinking of building one), this is a plus.
5. Customers love Stella & Dot.
Because Stella & Dot accessories are designed by the best talents in the industry, and half of their accessories delight for under $50, your customers are going to love them. Many of your favorite celebrities and fashion magazine editors, as well as bloggers, are seen wearing Stella & Dot pieces. That´s enough to inspire the girls to purchase from you.
6. Tools for success.
All the essential tools and training, plus a back office providing customer service, technology and direct delivery to your customers!
So what are you waiting for? Love your life and start building the business you´ll enjoy now!
