    When I saw this adorable “WDE” charm on my friend Katie’s Instagram (More about Katie below in Belles in Biz), I had to tell all of the Gridiron Belles about it. AND DO A GIVEAWAY!

    As promised, here is a little more info on our fellow Belle in Biz, Katie, the Belle behind creating the SEC items above!

    Name: Katie Lewis

    Team: Auburn Tigers

    Graduated from: Auburn University ‘06

    Biz:  Independent Stylist, Stella & Dot

    How did you get your start?

    I read the mission of Stella and Dot after a trunk show my mama attended, “To give every woman the means to style her own life…we have a vision of the world where strong women live bold and joyful lives. They know what they want and they work for it.” I signed up the next week, no regrets.

    And Now…?:

    I represent S&D’s line of jewelry and accessories, selling through in-home trunk shows and online through my personal website. I decide when and where to sell and how much time I want to invest in the business. I’m a party planner, fashion consultant and gifting guide. 

    Business advice to other Belles?

    Dream big. Like REALLY BIG! Figure out your “why” and then pursue it fearlessly – every day. Make a plan and take action; consistency and confidence will be key to your success. Remind yourself of your “why” every morning, then live it, love it, work it until it becomes reality.

    Favorite part about being an Auburn fan?

    Without a doubt, our game day traditions:  The eagle flying over Jordan-Hare Stadium before the game. Rolling Toomer’s Corner after a victory.  Mama G’s sandwiches and sweet tea.  I could go on…

    Favorite tailgate dish?

    Deviled eggs and pulled pork sandwiches.

    What do you always have in your touch down purse?

    My  touchdown purse is an orange Waverly Petite from Stella and Dot… it holds all my game day essentials:

    • Orange & Blue shaker
    • Scarlet & Gold face tattoos
    • Lip gloss
    • Sunglasses
    •  Cell phone to Instagram my favorite moments and outfits from the day

    Coach Crush? I’m on the “Gus Bus,” 100 percent. Talented, smart and confident in his signature game day attire.  What’s not to love?

    Who wins it all this year? Auburn, of course. War Eagle!

    Shop away, Belles!  We hope you’re the winner!
