    With the winter style season vastly approaching, Y.A.B. wants to embark upon preparing a vast array of women for holiday looks and we feel that this would be a befitting event to do so! We have connected with Stella and Dot as well as styling consultants from The Style Dolls and Love of Style by Erika to present a unique spin on a jewelry party! We also wanted to find a way to bring together a vast array of women in age so this event is for women of all ages to attend!

    Stella and Dot, an Inc. 500 Fastest-Growing Company, is a San Francisco based social selling company that creates flexible entrepreneurial opportunities for women. Their boutique-style jewelry and accessories line is available exclusively through in-home Trunk Shows by Independent Stylists and online. Their one of a kind collections are designed by celebrated New York designers and featured in Gossip Girl, In Style and Lucky Magazine as well as on the wrists and necklines of today's hottest celebrities. The Today Show, Wall Street Journal and The New York Times have praised Stella & Dot for their innovative social shopping concept which brings together the best of ecommerce, social media, personal service and passionate earning to create the ultimate home based business for today's modern woman. http://www.stelladot.com/

    This event is in collaboration with many of our venture partners including: Let Them Eat Cake Detroit, The Akir Group, and Luxury Girl Boutique.

    There will be photographers present as well as fashion bloggers from FASH DET so get ready for an afternoon of chic relaxation.

    There will also be a raffle to win our "Relaxation Package" while at the event!
