Dear Prudence: A Sponsor Spotlight for Fashion Friday (GIVEAWAY)

As I have found my fashion footing in the last few years I am finding that one of my go to ways to take an outfit from meh to wow is with accessories. It was a conscience decision to start wearing more necklace and earrings since before they had frankly always intimidated and confused. But with the advent of Pinterest I started paying more attention to how other women were using accessories to make their outfits pop.

Back when I highlighted my favorite places to shop for accessories I tried to keep my choices to stores that were national, but truth is there are a few local boutiques that I love to shop at as well. Top of that list is Dear Prudence.


Dear Prudence has stores in Gaslight Village (East Grand Rapids) and MoDiv (downtown). What I love about them is that they have a bunch of lines that are made in the US and many that are made right here in Michigan. I love buying from local artisans and I find their prices to be very affordable. In fact I did a fair amount of my Christmas shopping last year at Dear Prudence and had some very happy family members. Besides jewelry, they also carry apparel and home items. Everything to keep you on trend.

I always hesitate highlighting very local stores since my readership is from all across the US, but lucky for you they have an online store!! They carry the super trendy bubble necklaces. I have my eye on this tortoise cuff. And these gorgeous earrings will help me with my commitment to get out of my “silver hoops” rut.

My absolute favorite part of Dear Prudence is the story behind the store. In 2011 the founder found out that she had uterine cancer. As I have mentioned before, my grandma died of uterine cancer so it is something I think about. But after a year of treatment, she was cancer free and decided to pursue her dream of opening Dear Prudence. How awesome is that??!!

Dear Prudence is a monthly sponsor of Just Jilly starting in August, but I wanted to tell you about them now because next week is their one year anniversary. July 31st they are celebrating and want you to join in. And the awesome part is they are giving 10% of all their sales to Ele’s Place in Grand Rapids. Not surprising considering their ongoing commitment to being active in giving back to our community.

So PLEASE make sure to stop by one of their locations and shop next week!!

To celebrate even further, Dear Prudence wants to give away a $25 gift card for a mom items for their store AND a $25 gift card for kid items. Two giveaways at once so more chances to win! Good luck.
