Meet Stella | My Life-Changing Rescue Dog

One decision can change your life in ways you weren't expecting. Mine was on January 28, 2017. When I adopted an 8-week-old mutt from North Shore Animal LeagueI never expected that I would also unwittingly adopt a new passion, life journey and career change. Without Stella, I would have never appreciated the explosive growth in the pet industry, let alone the mission building around handmade and eco-friendly products. Prior to 1.28.17, I never imagined I'd set out on an entrepreneurial pursuit inspired by my canine muse. And I definitely never expected I would willingly trade the security of my full-time job for the insanity of starting a business in an industry I really knew nothing about. But that’s exactly what I did. It was all because of a little chihuahua-terrier mix that I discovered what I was truly passionate about. She also connected me with a community of the most supportive, dog-obsessed-parents that would eventually make it possible to operate Stella's Styles full-time. From sewing bandanas in my basement, the Stella's Styles brand was born with a little luck, a supportive dog-loving community, and a whole lot of dog-inspiration. Dogs have an amazing ability to bring about changes in our lives that we never imagined. Stella helped me find my passions and inspired me to pursue them.

Meet Katelynne | The human making your pet's favorite accessories

 I'm so grateful that I started this journey and never looked back. I am very passionate about Stella's Styles and the mission we're carrying. I love the the creativity I express by designing your bandanas and bows, I love mailing packages of joy, and I love that I get to work alongside the dog that inspired it all, everyday. I also absolutely love the crazy dog-obsessed community we've become a part of. But most importantly, on my journey, I met fiercely empowering women owning and operating their dog-inspired business too. Alone, we are all just a bunch of dog-moms trying to navigate our way as new business owners. But together, we are a pack of dog-moms fiercely encouraging and supporting each other's journey to becoming a successful women-powered, dog-inspired business. I've found my pack. 

From our fur-family to yours, I wish you the happiest tails
