Slaying in a Winter Wonderland…

Happy New Year Everyone and Welcome Back! I hope your 2017 Holiday Season was joyous! We’re officially in 2018 and the beginning of winter so you know what that means…Snow! Though it’s Full blown Winter now with Snow Storms or in the case of what what the eastern seaboard was recently hit with a “Bomb Cyclone” that should never mean you can’t be fashionable! As discussed in previous posts, I’m extra and while I want to be warm I also will be stylish and trendy. My Sole Sistas and I decided what better way to start the year than with a Collab and thus the “Winter Inspired” theme was given life. Since we all live in various parts of the country our Winter looks definitely Vary but they will ALWAYS be stylish!For me a mix of blue and white seemed appropriate for the season and weather. I decided to pair a Long Sleeve crew neck top with my “Miracle Skinny” jeans by JustFab, added my off white faux fur vest with a hood and my white Breanne pointy toe bootie from Shoedazzle to complete my look. As you can see I look like the cold never bothered me anyway.😉 My Sole Sistas styles themselves like this RobinCarrynStephanieMonicaYuritzi

Each one showcased how they keep stylish even when there’s snow on the ground and from they’re awesome looks I can just SEE the snow melting from the heat they bring! What do guys think? Would you rock these looks? How do you style yourself during the winter? I’d love to know if there’s anything I’m missing out on! Drop a comment below. As always Thanks so much for stopping by.

In the Navy…

Hi Everyone and Welcome back! I know by now you know me and how I feel about blue, but I didn’t have a lot of the color Navy in my closet and couldn’t tell you why I’d steer clear of this particular shade. It bugged me enough that I didn’t have it that I started actively looking to add it to my wardrobe and in the process fell in love with the hue.

My first addition of Navy was a big gorgeous handbag named “Rocklan” by JustFab (purchased last year) and when I saw how dark the color was but still pigmented to show that it had color that made you see it wasn’t the color black I was intrigued. I decided I needed more of this Fab and versatile color. My next addition was a chiffon long sleeve navy off the shoulder top with blush flowers. It was so cute and flowy with a touch of sexy because of the off the shoulder aspect. My navy collection began to grow.

Recently a coat that I received from my first PS by JustFab box (see two previous posts) and fell in love with (The Faux Suede Drape Coat) came in 2 other colors, Oxblood (Bordeaux which as you know a favorite of mine) and Navy! I HAD to have them both! So during one of JustFab‘s awesome sales I ordered the navy coat and these phenomenal OTK heeled boots in navy named “Leona”. To me they were a match made in heaven and I think when you see the pictures you’ll agree. As you can see not only is Leona a gorgeous boot because of her rich navy color but she’s also sensible because of her chunky heel for more comfortable and longer wear but she’s also sexy because of her lacing detail in the back that could play peek a boo when paired with a skirt or dress. Did I mention she comes in Wide Calf and Wide Width and is super comfy? You’re welcome! 😉 The Faux Suede Drape Coat is pretty perfect in any color. The navy off the shoulder top worked perfectly with this look as well with its pops of blush from the flowers making the top pop. The JustFab jeans Im wearing in cool blue contrast beautifully with all the Navy in this ensemble. I loved how they all came together to make this Navy look grab attention.

With my newest additions fitting in so beautifully I know I’m very happy to be in the navy. How about you? Did you love anything from this look? What would you have added or changed about this look? Are you a fan of Navy? I’d love to know! Drop a Comment down below. As always Thanks so much for stopping by! Wishing you and your loved ones a Very Merry Christmas!

Feeling Green with…Love

Hey Everyone, I’m back! Ever feel like there’s a color in your closet that you wear MAYBE two times a year but otherwise it’s never really bought out? That’s how I felt about the color green. It’s a beautiful color and I do like it but it was never really a color I wore often unless it was Christmas and or beginning of Spring and even then I might lean more towards flower prints then green and it’s many beautiful and various shades because I felt it wasn’t as flattering on me as it maybe on others.

Well Ladies and Gents enter JustFab. I’ve been a customer and a VIP for a long time and it DEFINITELY has its perks! I have already told you how much I’m loving the embroidery on things especially boots and booties, well they released this gorgeous flower embroidered peep toe bootie named “Bianka” that I just had to have! As you can see she’s beautiful and can be worn for both Spring AND Fall and she has touches of green in her. I was hesitant because as much as I wanted her I couldn’t picture wearing her with anything in my closet but as usual JustFab was prepared for people having the same dilemma as me.

They created this faux suede Moto Jacket in a STUNNING shade of Hunter Green and that folks is as they say is history. I ordered both and with my black Miracle Skinny Jeans I received from my Awesome Stylist Dani in my PS Box from PS by Just Fab (See previous post for more details) I had an instant rockstar look that was edgy, sexy, feminine and colorful too! Check it out.

I really enjoyed putting this look together and everything fit so comfortably too. I would definitely wear this look out to a concert or comedy show or a night out in the city. The jacket is warm and has great pockets and is SO soft. The richness of the green in this jacket has totally changed my mind and I’m looking forward to adding and rocking more shades of green into my wardrobe.

What color have you had an about face with recently because of a really stellar piece? Drop a comment and let me know in case there are other colors I need to start really looking at. Lol! Interested in becoming a VIP to snag these booties and or that jacket for $10 as your introductory welcome? Click here. JustFab.com/invite/SCerda. As always Thank You for stopping by!

Leopard Meets Roasted Pecan…

Hey Everyone, I’m back! I hope your Thanksgiving was wonderful and that you had plenty to eat and many people you love to spend the holiday with. If you had to work on the holiday I’m sorry about that but I hope you got that Holiday Money! LOL! Gotta think about Silver Linings. Anywho You’re probably wondering about my title and what I could possibly be referring to by “Roasted Pecan” well let me tell you, Roasted Pecan is a beautiful new color used to describe a brown orange. It’s a perfect fall color and I gotta say I’m loving it!

I was lucky enough to get to try a PSxJustFab Styling box. PS stands for Personal Styling by JustFab. It’s really an amazing deal. You take a short quiz about your taste in clothes and your preferred style and size and a stylist puts together a box for you. You can leave notes for them like you’re trying to add more color to your wardrobe or you want it to be more for work or for social engagements etc. You get to see the box and swap things out for other things they’ve chosen for you. You get 5 items. Once you’re satisfied with your box you click to confirm to send it and boom it’s delivered right to your door for you to try on at home. There’s still free exchanges and returns like JustFab regularly does. If you keep the box it’s $75 if you only keep a few items you’re charged for those items plus a $20 Styling fee. How awesome is that?

So I got to receive a PSxJustFab box and my stylist named Dani Alvarez who is so amazing, cute, on point and stylish she nailed my whole box! She even added pieces and colors I wasn’t sure about (including the Roasted Pecan) but assured me I’d love it and she was absolutely right! Everything in my box I loved but what stood out most was the Roasted Pecan Drape Coat and it’s softness. I could not wait to wear it! Finally on Thanksgiving I debuted this baby and I think you’ll agree it was worth the wait. My dress which complemented the coat so well was a Burnt Orange or Brick Red by Gabrielle Union from her New York & Company line and I decided to pair this look with my gorgeous Animal Print Sandal named Lilith by Shoedazzle. This whole look came together so seamlessly, I couldn’t have planned it any better.Each color/Print stood out but worked well for the over all look. I couldn’t have been happier. Like I previously mentioned the coat is so soft, warm and comfy and so rich in color I had to get it in the other two colors it comes in (Navy and Oxblood)Leopard is a classic and can definitely stand out by itself but when paired with such a vibrant and beautiful color it only makes the print stand out more, so when my Sole Sisters and I decided we wanted to do an animal print collaboration it was a no brainer for me to pull out the gorgeous and magical coat again and this time add a little more fall friendly pair of animal print shoes. Enter Neysa by Shoedazzle, a beyond sexy OTK boot. She comes in a variety of colors like solid Black, black Patent leather, gunmetal and of course leopard. I myself have her in Gunmetal as well. She’s super sexy and a perfect match with these Miracle Skinny jeans (Also from my PSxJustFab Box and another great pick by Dani.) And this off the shoulder top also from JustFab from last year. They teamed up to make an amazing look that’s perfect for going out with the girls or a date night with just the perfect amount of “Roar!”

My Sisters wanted to share how they do animal print and because they’re some of the stylish people I know I couldn’t wait to see and get ideas different from mine.What do you guys think of Animal Print are you a fan? What’s your take on Roasted Pecan? Are you a fan like I am? Chime in below I’d love to know! As always Thanks so much for stopping by.

Crazy for Camo!

Hey Guys! Welcome back, I’m sure you’ve noticed that Camo has come a long long way from being just the colors of our strong and brave military men and women. It’s become an awesome fashion trend as well. It’s also more then just your army green and navy blues but there is even pink/blush, Grey/black and white too!

There are so many ways to wear it from clothes to shoes to bags and even hats and jackets! I decided I needed to have more of this trend in my closet and set out on my search to find a traditional Camo piece that really called to me and man did I hit the nail on the head! Let me share with you these gems I found. This fabulous Tunic Dress by Fashion Nova is everything I could have asked for and has definitely set the precedent for my love of Camo. The material is thick so it’s great for the fall and even going into the winter months being able to layer with it since It’s already long sleeve. Because of its Style and the Camo print it can literally go with everything! Black, Olive, Green, Blush, Denim even Bordeaux! The choices are endless for this piece! Fashion Nova never lets me down! I had to pair her with these amazing OTK boots named Addylin by Shoedazzle. The Button detail up and down the boot gave me total military vibes and the color just screamed “Im PERFECT for that dress” and I agreed whole heartedly! As you can see this dress though it’s a Tunic Style it is a body con version of it which I’m more partial to. Tunics are more loose and flowy so a belt can be added for style and to accent the shape of the wearer. As you can see Addylin is awesome because she has a side zip for easy on and easy off and there’s a slit in the back of the boot at the top of the thigh so there’s a little more breathing room if needed. This beautiful torso length necklace is by Shoedazzle. It’s lovely and femenine and dainty and a perfect contrast for my look. Shoedazzle REALLY outdid themselves with this OTK Boot. From color to style she’s amazing. She’s Unique and the Perfect color to add to a fall collection. Not only is she comfortable as she’s a platform boot so you can have longer wear from her but she comes in Wide Calf and Wide Width as well so She is big calf friendly and I’ll be able to wear her with jeans and leggings as well as amazing dresses like this one.

Me and my Sole Sistas have put together some Camo inspired looks as well in case you’re hesitant and unsure of how to incorporate it in your closet or looks. I personally can’t wait to add more Camo to my closet. Do you love Camo? If so what pieces do you have in your closet? Drop a comment below and share with me. As Always Thanks so much for stopping by!

🎃One Bad Witch 🎃

Hey you guys, Welcome back! Halloween is around the corner so this week I wanted to ask you guys is it possible to make a cool and recongnizable costume out of stuff in your closet? I say ABSOLUTELY! Not everyone has the funds every year to spend on an expensive costume that you’ll most likely wear once. I know as a mother of 4 children that one costume alone can be expensive but add more children and those numbers multiply quickly, not to mention kids are tough on them and they don’t last very long because most are cheaply made now a Days. 

    My Sole Sistas and I wanted to do a Collab of costumes you can create or looks to do to help be festive for the holiday, So I’m gonna share a hack with you on how to create a costume from your closet with minimal and cheap additions to complete the look. No every costume doesn’t have to be a “sexy” version of whatever you decide unless that’s your personality or preference. As you all know I’m extra so I like to be the one in heels but not always. For this costume I thought heels would work well and really sell this look and I think they did and here’s how it came out. I decided I was going to be a witch since I had an asymmetrical Long Sleeve LBD (Little Black Dress) in my closet from Just Fab that hadn’t gotten love in a year. I decided that adding a few pops of color would make my witch look stand out and be a little more fun. So I went to The Dollar Tree and purchased my purple and black witch hat and broom for a dollar each. So cool right? And they’re adorable and different so they definitely add color to my LBD. I even took my pics at the “witching hour” to sell the my witchy vibe 😊Next we have my awesome stockings that are so perfectly witchy (if I do say so myself) that I purchased off Amazon for $10. They’re comfy and fun and I think they’d even look great under distressed denim for a pop of color and a different take on stockings under distressed denim. Next we have my amazing booties named “Shylan” in black by Just Fab. This gorgeous and sexy Bootie screamed “Bad Witch” to me since She has leaf details in black all over her which makes her better and more chic then your average black Bootie and you guys know I’m here for that! She also comes in animal print and sparkles!  I think they worked great with this look. Lastly we have my makeup. I used the MorphexJaclynHill Palette by Morphe to do my eyes because that palette is amazing and so pigmented I didn’t need to use a lot. I used the shimmery purple named “Royalty” and I softly smoked it out with black eye liner. On my lips I have the Ciaté London Glitter Lipstick in Fortune sold at SephoraAnd this is how it all came together. $12 for a “sexy” Adult Halloween costume? Almost unheard of! Now when I go trick o treating with my kids I have another closet creation in mind which I’ll share on my IG Page, however My Sole Sistas and I wanted to Collab again to give you guys ideas and inspiration for Halloween Looks on a Budget in case you have parties to attend or just have to dress up to go trick or treating with your kids or family and you need something affordable and easy to do. Here’s the looks they created. Robin became a Flower Witch with Embroidery on her dress she turned a stylish dress into a stylish costume. Danielle became Little Red Ridinghood with a cute sweatshirt dress with a Hoodie and a sexy pair of OTK boots voila transform into a costume for a party or meetup. For more details on their looks follow them on Instagram. @RobinAvidor and @Adidaswoman. What did you think of my look? Did I miss anything? What would you have done differently? What look was your favorite? Drop a comment below and let me know. As always Thank You for stopping by!

Can OTK boots more then just sexy?

Hey Everyone! Welcome back, today I’m talking about Thigh High or OTK (Over The Knee) Boots again. I know I’m obsessed with them especially during fall season and honestly with good reason. They really are versatile and can help make your look say something depending on what they’re paired with. They can help up the sexy in your look or the soft and romantic in your look. Not sure what I mean by soft and romantic? Let me show you. Meet Shondell. A beautiful Thigh High Boot by Shoedazzle. She is almond toed, and has a gorgeous gold detail on her chunky heel. I paired her here with a black pair of Distressed Jeans and off the shoulder peasant top both from Fashion Nova. We can clearly see that Shondell is sexy but she’s not over poweringly so because she was paired with colors as soft as her grey and the billowy style of the top helps mute the sexy vibes a thigh high boot might give off as well. Here’s a close up of this beauty. The material she’s made of is a cloth so she has wonderful stretch and she comes in wide calf for those who like me have a wide calf and love thigh highs but want the extra space for Pants to wear w her. Her gold detail on her heel really do make her stand out as not your standard grey chunky heel thigh high boot. ShoeDazzle really made a stunning boot! I LOVE the ruffle details of this blouse from Fashion Nova. The billowy sleeves and just the top in general remind me of old school romance novels which I grew up on so no wonder it drew my eye. Did I mention she also has a beautiful tie detail on the back of her thigh? She’s a must have for a Shoelover’s collection but especially for Thigh High lovers EVERYWHERE. This look gave me perfect soft and romantic date vibes and I hope it did for you too. You don’t want to miss out on Shondell. She also comes in black if Grey isn’t your thing. What’s your take on this beautiful OTK boot? Drop a comment below. As Always Thank You for stopping by!

It’s time for Brunch!

Hey everyone! If you guys are anything like me you love food. I love all meal times if I’m honest but there’s just something about mimosas, specialty omlettes and bacon that just does it for me. So Brunch has a special place in my heart and is always a special outting for me. However just as much as I love brunch, I love the fashion a brunch entails. There are SO many different ways to dress. Depending on your location and who you’re brunching with. Since I’m “extra” When I do brunch I prefer a sexy yet comfy (I need room to eat after all lol) almost glam look like this.

  This beautiful criss cross spaghetti strap tie dye dress I’m wearing is from Fashion Nova, my Bordeaux Heeled Sandals are named Neri and  are from Shoedazzle and my Sunglasses are from Go Jane. I chose My dress because not only is it beautiful but it’s versatile because it can go from day to night with just a change of heels and a clutch. My Neri heels also can be worn with jeans and be just as attention grabbing. 

  My Stylish and Fashionable Sole Sistas and I decided to do a collab of brunch looks to showcase the different ways and styles one could do brunch in, I think it came out amazing because there’s truly something for everyone no matter your age.  This lovely lady named Myisha @mys_elegance went for a monochrome look with shoes being the pop of different. Both her adorable crop top and studded skirt are from Fashion Nova as well and her shoes are also from Shoedazzle. See why we’re Sole Sisters? This Beauty named Stephanie @StephanieGivesYouLife is serving with her brunch look. Can’t you just picture her in the city? Here she is rocking her light weight trench coat from JustFab, her tank from Target, her white pants from Curvy Sense, her quilted leather crossbody by Rebecca Minkoff, her blocked suede heels named Akela by JustFab, her scarf that she used as a stylish headband by MaxStudio and her retro sunglasses by American Eagle. Then we have this creative stunner named Moreinke @biolascollection slaying in pants she rescued from Goodwill and a Top she DIY’d by cutting up a skirt! Shoes of course by Shoedazzle.  How awesome is this look?This hottie named Danielle @adidaswoman is giving innocently sexy vibes in her babydoll like skater dress and necklace from Shoedazzle and wedge heels from JustFab. With those legs and that smile you can bet she’s a blast at brunch! This beauty named Michelle @mz_michiiboo decided to play in print and I’m loving it. This gorgeous skirt in African Print paired with a 3/4 sleeve button down white blouse makes for a simple and elegent look no matter the occasion. Allowing you to play with color AND print without overloading the senses. Paired with simple nude platform pumps. Last but definitely not least we have this lovely named Robin @robinavidor and she opted for Tie Dye just as I did. Her look however Tank top and high low maxi skirt is from Khols. With stylish and comfy bronze booties with strap details named Cidley from Shoedazzle this look is definitely comfy yet elegent and of course chic.

And finally here we all are in our collab picture posted on Instagram (Follow me if you aren’t already @SarasTrendyStyle)  offering you 7 different looks and styles you can opt for the next time you do brunch. And when you do go here’s hoping you have a wonderful time eating, drinking and of course serving and slaying! Thanks so much for stopping by. Till next time. 
With Love & Style,

Sara
