    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.

    The Cold Shoulder Craze is in full effect this season. We've seen it for awhile now and it is definitely here to stay!  Whether it's a cold shoulder cut or off the shoulder look, this is one trend that you will want to take part in.  There is no age restriction, so don't be shy!  With so many looks and styles, there is sure to be the right one out there for you.  

    A cold shoulder cut is no different than wearing your favorite tank. Think of it is a little added flare and perhaps a little extra warmth if the sleeve length is longer. We have been adding tons of new styles and choices from casual to dressy. These styles come in not only tops, but dresses and rompers too.  
    A basic knit with a cold shoulder cut out is fabulous and helps to add something unique to a standard solid or striped top.  This easy breezy look pairs well with jeans and shorts and can be finished with sneakers, converse, flats, or sandals.
    I'm really loving the OTS look as well. We have some stunning pieces in store if you're feeling a little bold.  Ruffles are all the rage and we have selections for you with or without the ever coveted ruffle. 
    Now, what to wear underneath these fancy cuts...a bra, obviously! But what kind?  It all depends on the cut.  Many tops can be worn with your every day bra. Some may require a racerback style and some will need a strapless.  If you're not a fan of strapless, try a sticky bra!  If you absolutely need the comfort of a standard bra, consider a cute bralette.  Something with thin straps or a little lacy detail might be just the right touch and there are so many options available. 
    Be sure to check out our website or stop in store for more to come.  We post new arrivals daily on Facebook and Instagram so be sure to follow us there so you don't miss out on What's New.  Many items sell out quickly so be the first to be in the know and get your hands on something fabulous this season!

    Last Friday, we hosted our best fashion show to date!  Over 120 pieces of new and exciting fashion was featured.  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 and exciting spring wardrobe. So much is on the rage this year and we have scoured the racks to bring you the best spring looks of 2017.   

    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, this look is fun, stylish, and super trendy.  We have some super cute styles to get you started.  Equally in line with showing a little peek-a-boo skin are open backs and side cut-outs.  This style top looks very cute with a cami or bralette for added coverage.  
    From light, to bright, neutrals, and prints, we have so much in store to cover all style bases.  A knotted front tee or high low top easily jazzes up your look with very minimal effort.  Bell sleeves and ruffles add a little more spice.  Sleek lines and sweetheart cuts add a bit more glam and class. Distressed denim in jean, black, or white (even pink) will have heads turning in our favorite boutique style jeans that fit like a glove.  
    Tis the season for showers, weddings, and upcoming graduation parties.  We have several options from dresses to rompers ready to go.  These looks always require minimal effort.  Add some great accessories, adorable shoes, and you're set!  Don't forget to add a fun spring jacket to complete the outfit and add an extra layer of warmth while temps slowly begin to rise. 
     
    Spring Break is also right around the corner.  Spruce up your suitcase with casual knit dresses, scalloped shorts, or an amazing maxi!  You can never go wrong with a maxi dress or skirt.  Lightweight gauchos or wide leg pants can be simply paired with a casual tank and some cute jewelry to feel instantly dressed up.  
    We here at Sofi Stella, are ready for spring and all things fashion!  Stop by or shop online today to see all the new looks available and ready to go.  Don't miss out on some fabulous pieces.  My personal post fashion show haul is the biggest it has ever been. I literally had to hide all of my goodies and have been slowly putting away piece by piece hoping my splurge goes unnoticed! Shhhh!  Spring is most definitely in the air and our closets are ready...is yours?
    Much love and thanks for your continued support! 
    We couldn't do it without YOU!

    Spring is in the air... 

     

    If you're local then you know this weather we have been having is insane!  Signs of spring have put a little more pep in all our steps.  At Sofi Stella, we have been adding fabulous new spring arrivals daily. It's time to put away the grays and bring on the blush, florals, and whites.  
    Adorable knit tops pair well with denim and white skinnies.  If you're heading on vacation, some destinations still cool down a bit at night so shorts with sandals or wedges are great options.  Add a long beaded or tassel necklace for a little extra flair. 
    On days when you're running behind, a cute cold shoulder knit with a great pair of denim, some sneaks, and a ball cap will get you out the door in no time.  The ever coveted top knot is always a perfect option.  Try tucking one side into your pants and you're instantly on trend and feeling fabulous in your cute and cozy knit top. 
    We love everything from basics to trendy to dressy.  One thing we strive to do is select pieces to compliment all styles and allow for you to style them with ease. Our annual spring fashion show is less than a month away and over 100 new items will be featured and added to our collection.  If you weren't able to get a ticket this year, be ready to shop in store or online Saturday morning of March 25th to grab yourself some amazing new items and spring staple pieces.

    New Year, New Fashion!

    The new year has come and it is already flying by!  Many of us set forth with our new goals and commitments, and revisit the old ones that need work.  It's super important to take care of bodies in every way that we can.  Whether its by eating healthier, getting in some more exercise, or simply feeling put together.
    What makes you feel put together?  Is it hours of primping each morning with full hair and makeup, a cute top knot with some athleisure wear, or rocking some jeans with a hoodie and pony.  Whatever it is, do it.  Don't feel bad if you're not dressed up like other moms in the school drop off line.  Don't look down to other moms still in their pajamas in that same line.  We all live different lives and have different stories.  But, what we should all be is strong, confident women.  If pajamas are your jam, rock them, and check out ours because we sure do have some cute ones!
    As Sofi Stella has expanded over the years, it has allowed us to carry more and make sure we have something that caters to all styles. We bring in a lot of basic pieces because basics are our staple pieces. They are intended to be worn as is or dressed up more for those who like to take it to the next level.  So you don't feel like getting dressed one day and want to be comfortable. Throw on a basic tunic, some nice leggings, add a cute top knot with a little mascara, and you are dressed up with hardly any effort.  When you're feeling bold and edgy grab a pair of distressed skinnies with a button up or leather jacket, add a scarf or a beanie with a cute pair of Converse and you're good to go. When you have bed head and need to be ready in a flash, a beanie is you're best friend (along with dry shampoo)!  If you need to be ready for work or a little more classy for the day, a simple dress, a statement necklace and some heels will do the trick.  I love the challenge of putting multiple pieces together and mixing prints and patterns but this can be frightening to some.  Dresses, jumpsuits, and rompers are easy go to pieces that do not require much else but some simple jewelry. 
    My point is, you don't need to be a fashionista to be fabulous or look fabulous. You just need a store that carries a variety of options that suits your style and needs.  If you need help, ask!  We love to help our customers find what they're looking for.  That's the beauty of a boutique.  We aren't here to hound you and pounce on you as soon as you enter the store. We truly want to help you if you need it and we enjoy you as a customer and helping you get exactly what you're looking for.
    If you haven't attended one of our fashion shows then what are you waiting for?  Our shows consist of everything we bring in store, from basic to the extreme.  Our Girls Night Out Spring Fashion Show is happening on March 24th and will be featuring some amazing new styles for spring as well as resort attire!  Tickets to the event go on sale this Saturday, January 21st at 10am and you will want to book fast as our events sell out quickly.  Grab a friend or two, get your tickets, and come enjoy a fun night out with the girls.  Our shows feature over 100 new items and are ready for you to shop immediately after. Be the first to get your hands on that stellar spring dress or awesome new vest you see featured!
    Make this year a year to remember and one that you have tackled with all your might.  When you fall down, get back up and keep going. Be strong, be confident,and always stay true to YOU!
