    Is it really August already??  This summer is moving way too fast, but on the bright side, we have tons for you in store so let's get shopping!  Last week we hosted our annual White Party Fashion Show and featured over 160 brand new pieces!  Guests enjoyed not only viewing our new collections, but being the first to shop these new looks.  In this show we feature end of summer pieces and then transition these styles into fall.  It's our biggest show of the year and it's no secret as to why!

    As much as we hate to admit it, we know that fall is right around the corner.  With that said, it's exciting to see what's on trend and work on how to choose pieces that easily transition from summer into fall. Some hot items sold out but we have so much greatness still in store and available for you to snag and incorporate into your new wardrobe. So much is on the rage this year and we have scoured the racks to bring you the best new fall looks of 2018.  

    The cold shoulder and off the shoulder trend is still in full effect and is only getting better with the change of season.  From blouses to knits and incorporated into  dresses, jumpsuits, and rompers, this look is fun, stylish, and super trendy.  We have some amazing pieces to get you started.  Equally in line with showing a little peek-a-boo skin are open backs and side cut-outs.  

     
    Bold colors, stripes, and the ever coveted black and white patterns will help round out your summer wardrobe and move you into fall.  Spring and summer aren't the only seasons to exude vibrance. Be bold and beautiful this fall and make a statement with your look. Navy prints are in right now too.  We have several items and prints in navy tones.  It's such a classic color that transitions from summer right into fall when you pair pieces with denim, light jackets, and ankle boots. Black florals are on point this season and look amazing in the upcoming autumn months. 

    We managed to find some amazing jumpsuits and rompers for this season. We always talk about how easy these are to style.  Add some statement jewelry and a great pair of heels and you're ready to rock!

    Kimonos are another great option and should be a staple piece in your closet. Throw one over a solid jumpsuit, or pair it up with jeans and a tee.  It's another super easy way to pull your look together with very minimal effort. Speaking of minimal effort, we chose a great selection of tops and sweaters this season to get you out the door in a snap.  Ruffles, stripes, twists, and lace ups make styling easy and give you a very simple yet unique, casual outfit. 

    We talk about the importance of layering every year. Layers, upon layers, upon layers, right? Right! Layering is fun and helps you beat the temps this time of year. Cool mornings and evenings but warmer days make it difficult sometimes. Just make sure to grab your layers. 

    Simple twists and variations on previous looks and trends simply vamp up your style game and your closet for something new and exciting.  Look for pieces that make great staples, add a couple splurges to mix it up, and always choose items that are true to you.  Staying within your style limits will aid in keeping you feeling confident and being confident is sexier than any pair of skinny jeans!  If you're unsure, I say give it a try.  The power of a fabulous new outfit has an amazing effect on the soul!
     
    It’s always exciting to see what’s on trend for the new season. I love to see how it compares to last year, the years prior, and date back to when we saw this trend last. It's thrilling how styles circle back around and I really enjoy the variations on these “comebacks” so to speak.  With all that said, stop in and see us!  We have new arrivals daily and several fall must-haves in store now and yet to come.

    Think Spring!



    Can you feel spring in the air? With some of these Michigan days we've been having at random it's hard to imagine that we still have a few weeks of winter left. Spring Break is right around the corner. Easter is coming. Swaying trees, tall grass, and fresh blooms are on the horizon. At Sofi Stella, we have been anticipating the ever coveted season of spring...with fresh, new fashion and incredible looks of course!

    This year, Sofi Stella decided to do something different for our fabulous customers. If you haven't viewed our Spring 2018 Look Book, then what are you waiting for!? After much work and collaboration we unveiled our beautiful Look Book online. Just click on the link to open the book and voila! You can shop every piece in store or online. But hurry, these looks won't last!

    If you love bright, saturated colors, then you are in luck! We have some amazing pieces on trend that are simply stunning. We are all about the bold and the bright...and the beautiful. Dresses and jumpsuits, we've got your covered.

    We often think that spring is just bright and cheery and all about florals, which it is, but don't forget that gray and blush are the perfect neutral colors that never go out of style. They are your easy, go-with-everything color. Paired with white these colors look so light and airy which scream out spring and pose as go to colors this season.

    Everything from trendy to basics is available right now. We strive to bring a variety of looks and options for you to have fun with. Items you can put together as we’ve featured them and pieces you can add to your closet and style on your own. Our boutique jeans this season are extremely comfy and oh so cute! You won’t be sorry once you try them on. Leggings are always in style and you must see our cute and trendy styles.

    We have stocked up on some amazing transition pieces too. Lightweight sweaters pair well with jeans and ankle booties which easily take you into summer with cut off shorts and sandals for chilly evenings at the beach. A great sweater dress pairs well with boots and a light jacket that you can peel off as temps rise throughout the day.

    Our resort wear this season is the best it’s ever been! We have some beautiful cover ups to keep you stylish at the pool, beach, or simply cruising around the resort. Grab yourself a floppy hat and large beach bag and you’re set. (Don’t forget your sunscreen and your sunnies!)

    Do not forget the most important accessories…jewelry! A long necklace, gorgeous statement earrings always add that little finishing touch to any outfit. Be sure to check out our unique pieces this season that will have heads turning.

    We couldn’t be happier with our 2018 Spring Look Book this year. The hard work and dedication from our staff and crew is immeasurable. We hope you love it as much as we do! Now, hurry, and get shopping!

    Don't forget we carry some amazing candles in such wonderful scents.  My kids always comment on our room sprays...I run around my house spritzing like crazy and it smells so good!  One of my favorite things about Sofi Stella is walking through the front door, being greeted by a smiling face, and the amazing smell that overwhelms my soul.  (Psst, your home can smell like this too!)
    Beanies, scarves, home decor, candles, clothing and more...we can help you finish your list!  If you're not sure what to get, a gift card is always a great option.  We'll wrap that too!

    What’s not to love about this time of year!  Yes, it’s cold and only getting colder, but that means sweater weather is finally here to stay!  It is time to layer up, cozy up, and do it in style. We have tons of sweaters in all different shapes and sizes to keep you warm and toasty this fall and winter.  From sleeve detail to loose or fitted options, we are confident you will find what you’re looking for.

    A few weeks ago, we had our annual fashion show featuring looks for both women and children.  Now is the perfect time to grab those holiday outfits for yourself and the little ones. Church, parties, family photo sessions, we have got your covered for the holidays this year.  Whether you are looking for casual or dressy, we have several options in store to suit your needs. We have gorgeous party dresses as well as vests, sweaters, and trendy tops.

    I have mentioned previously some of the amazing fall trends this year and a quick reminder that velvet, red, faux fur, metallic, retro, and blush are trending big time this season! Plaid is always in style and looks so good.  We are loving a simple top with printed sleeves, so cute and trendy for this time of year.  Winter florals are easy to style and require minimal effort to complete a look.

    We have tons of denim in stock right now and we love the way our boutique jeans fit. Check out all our styles as well as other pants options.  Options range from the destroyed look, to frayed ankles, or plain for a more polished finish.

    News alert- Beanies are in stock but they do sell out quickly. Check out the new pony/top knot beanies we are carrying in 4 different colors.  Add a scarf and you’re set.

    Have you seen our new home décor?  We are loving the holiday items in stock right now and you will too.  Whether you need to redecorate your own home, or gift a friend, there are several pieces to choose from that will not disappoint.

    It's hard to believe that our annual Holiday Fashion Show is coming up this weekend.  With this weather we've been having, it barely feels like fall!  Nonetheless, our staff has been working hard to gear up for what we believe will be another fabulous show to bring you tons of new arrivals for fall, winter, and holiday looks. 
    What's so special about this show is that we have women and children of all ages modeling this years trends and styles.  Located at the beautiful Crystal Gardens, we will showcase over 100+ pieces while guests enjoy an evening of dinner, fun, and fashion.  This is truly a family affair!
    As our models take the stage, guests can expect to see outfits and styles that are casual and dressy which cater to all.  Our little ones love to strut their cuteness on the runway and they absolutely shine with poise, character, and tons of personality. 
    Not only do we feature the clothes, we show you ways to style these looks. As always, all items are available and ready to shop immediately following the event.  So, if you are one of our lucky ticket holders, you get first dibs!  Not to worry if you were unable to attend this year.  All items will be in store and online after the weekend.  
    If you're local, come on in next week and see all the new arrivals first hand.  The store will be cluttered (in a good way) with this season's best!  We are ready to style you for family photos, holiday parties, and any oner event you have this season along with every day attire!

    Fall is almost officially here and we have some important business to discuss…what are the 2017 Fall Fashion Trends? Well, I’m glad you asked! We have some trends that are definitely still here to stay and some fun new looks on the rise. The ever coveted cold shoulder and off the shoulder style is still in full effect and only gets better with each new season. Our blush color we love so much is also still very on point and even moving slightly into a pale pink version. However, pink may take a backseat this fall because there is a hot new color in town. Red is most definitely the power color this fall. Whether it’s a simple pop of red or head to toe, you will want to get some red in your life this season. If you’re feeling a little bold, then grab yourself a pair of flats, ankle booties, or a killer pair of red OTK boots. A red coat will have you equally turning heads. Often we say that less is more, but from what I am seeing and hearing out there, the more red the better! I am a sucker for anything fur…fur lined, fur vest, fur coat. Fur is coming back again with a twist. Try something new and look for something vintage inspired with your fur. If you can’t find something vintage, don’t fret, any fur, as always, will do! How do you feel about fishnets? I mean, take me back to my tap dancing days, right? Wrong! Fishnets are in this season. I like to see them in place of tights or trouser socks under cropped or ankle length pants. You can vary this in many ways. You could wear them in place of tights under a dress as well. Add some OTK or ankle boots to complete the look. A few other trends that go hand in hand are 70’s plaid and retro hats.

    We love plaid, we love hats…throwing a 70’s vibe on that makes it that much more fun if you ask me! Glitter, metallic, and leather, oh my! I saw a lot of this shopping in NYC recently but I couldn’t quite bring myself to make any sudden purchases. Gold and silver metallic boots were all over. I’ll leave them in the store for now, but hey, if you’re feeling it, grab a pair, you can’t go wrong! Leather studded anything is killer too. I perused over several leather clutches and small crossbodies with unique embellishment. Wide belts, florals, and mid lengths skirts aren’t anything new. Simple twists and variations on previous looks and trends simply vamp up your style game and your closet for something new and exciting. We talk about the importance of layering every year. Layers, upon layers, upon layers, right? Right! Layering is fun and helps you beat the temps this time of year. Cool mornings and evenings but warmer days make it difficult sometimes. Just make sure to grab your layers. For something fun, add layers of sheer for a little flare! It’s always exciting to see what’s on trend for the new season. I love to see how it compares to last year, the years prior, and date back to when we saw this trend last. I’'s thrilling how styles circle back around and I really enjoy the variations on these “comebacks” so to speak. With all that said, stop in and see us! We have new arrivals daily and several fall must-haves in store now and yet to come. We are gearing up for our next fashion show which will feature both women and children’s holiday and winter styles! This is a great event to bring your daughter too! Limited seating and tickets are going fast. Order online now! www.sofistella.com

    2 Weeks ago Sofi Stella featured over 100 new pieces at our annual White Party Fashion Show. Everything was perfect from the venue, to the models, the staff, and of course our guests! While several items have already sold out, there is still so much in store waiting for you. At this show, we aim to feature end of summer styles as well as what's new for fall this season. The colors this time of year may still be bright and vibrant but are perfect to snatch up for those end of season events, upcoming fall getaways, and of course to incorporate into your fall wardrobe with layering. We are all about the layers and super cute jackets to fight the morning chill as we head into the back to school season. Cold shoulder, off the shoulder, and ruffles are here to stay. If you haven't bit the bullet yet, now is the time! We have some fabulous tops and dresses in these styles available. Gorgeous dresses are waiting for you too. So many cuts, lengths, and prints for you to choose from. Do you have any end of summer or fall weddings coming up? Grab something from Sofi Stella and be sure to turn heads. Lace detail is so classy and always adds something extra to a piece. We also have some very dressy rompers as well. Not feeling a romper? Then jump into a jumpsuit! We always have great jumpsuits but this season, I don't think we have ever had as many that are so amazing as what we showcased last week. The walk through style maxi is where it's at right now. Imagine it, a romper that is short in the front and long in the back from a sheer skirt that splits open in the front! Sounds pretty spectacular right?!? This trend is on point and you know you can find it at Sofi Stella. We have talked about our boutique jeans in the past but just in case your new to us, let me tell what you're missing!

    We carry a line that is so perfect you'd think they were $200+ designer jeans. If I'm being totally honest, they are even better than the $200 designer pair in my closet! They have just the right amount of stretch that doesn't leave you stretched out as the day carries on. From plain, distressed, and frayed at the ankle, we have many options for you to try on that are very true to size. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to keep up to date with new arrivals. We post new arrivals daily and you don't want to miss them! Stop in or shop online today to bring some exciting pieces into your closet and get a head start on your fall wardrobe!

    There is nothing more classic and elegant as the all white look. I'm talking head to toe dressed in white. This combo is perfect in the summer time. It is so pristine and polished. Sporting a neutral or light toned sandal adds the perfect finishing touch. 

    With our annual White Party upon us, I thought I would share a few ways to wear white to not only this amazing event, but elsewhere too!  If wearing too much white worries you in regards to potential spills and stains, then toss a Tide To-Go Stick in your pocket and throw those worries away!
    Some of my favorite pairings are blush and white, taupe and white, or floral and white.  Black and white will forever be iconic, so when in doubt, black and white it out!
    Mixing sheer with white denim and topping it off with a pop of color brings something exciting and unique to your overall style. A bright colored necklace or earrings, patterned clutch, or some animal print heels will do just the trick. 
    A light blazer or denim jacket goes perfectly with all white.  If you're looking for something to fight a little chill in the air but is more lightweight, wrap a chambray shirt around your waist. Even if you never put it on, it sure looks cute.
    Showers, weddings, vacations, and date nights, are just some of the few events to sport your white look.  We have plenty of options in store to get you started.  Beautiful dresses you can wear for work or play, tops that transition from daily errand running to hitting the town in the evening, or a stunning jumpsuit that is sure to turn heads.  Don't let the short weeks left of summer make you shy away from these purchases. You can bring your white pieces well into fall and winter with you.
    Surprise!  It's deal time...Let's get you styled and fabulous for your next outing. As a thank you for your continued support and reading along, you can shop online and checkout with code MEGHAN15 to receive 15% off your online purchase. What are you waiting for? Get shopping!
    We can't wait to see you at our White Party in August. If you missed out on buying tickets, be ready to shop all of the amazing new pieces that will be in store the next day.  You won't want to miss the new fall trends this season!

    Dress season is upon us!  What occasion do you have coming up? How dressy do you need to be? With so many new styles hitting the floor daily, we are sure you will find exactly what you're looking for. 

    Cold shoulder and off the shoulder is here to stay and we have some gorgeous cuts and prints this season.  Something strappy with gorgeous detail may be just what you need.  Anything with sleeves right now is super hot. The more detail the better. Did you ever think you could make a statement with your sleeves?  Well think again!
    Ruffles are all the rage. The more the merrier.  We cannot get enough ruffles!  Mixing off the shoulder with a ruffle will have you turning heads at your next big event.  
    There is just something about sheer that never goes out of style. Sheer gives you a bit of mystery, something unique. Sheer is always classy and elegant. It is the perfect go to addition to anything in your wardrobe.
    We love bold and vibrant prints but don't shy away from something in a more neutral tone. White, cream, and blush are colors that never go out of style so if you're looking for that one perfect dress to wear over and over stick with something simple.  Plus, you can never go wrong with a LBD!
    Weddings, graduations, showers, or date night with your spouse...a dress is easy and perfect for all of these occasions.  Complete your look with block heels or a backless heel this season.  Skip the stiletto and try some comfort on for size. 
    Sofi Stella also has some new jewels in stock. We all know the outfit isn't complete until we add the right accessories to jazz it up!  Turn heads this summer with something amazing that is true to your style. 
    On a side note, our annual white party will be here before you know it.  Keep a close eye for ticket sales and a close watch for the perfect outfit for this fabulous event. 
    Be sure to Dress the Part this year with your friends at Sofi Stella.
