Sparkly Sunset-Atardecer Brilloso!

Sol Sisters find themselves being so blessed to know great people (this time specifically-Amber Aguilar owner of Bella Bridal) that allow us to work on being creative and having so much fun styling clothing pieces. Inez approached our good friend Amber if we could style one of her beautiful gowns for one of our photo-shoots. Amber is the owner of Bella Bridal Boutique in Downtown Mesa, if you guys are in the area definitely pay her a visit her gowns are to die for! She happily accepted and gave us one of her most favorite dresses for us to get creative with. We decided to do the unexpected and do Liz's hair in a fish tail braid instead of a more glamorous hairdo, purple color lipstick and a pair of Ray-Bans to go with the ensemble. Liz felt like a million bucks ready for the red carpet :)

Sol Sisters tienen la gran bendicion de tener buenisimops amigos/amigas (esta vez especificamente estamos hablando de nuestra amiga Amber Aguilar-duena de Bella Bridal) ke nos permiten expresar nuestra creatividad y ser creativas al estilizar diferentes piezas de ropa. Inez consulto con Amber y le pregunto si podiamos hacer style un vestido de noche para uno de nuestros photoshoots. Amber quien es la duena de Bella Bridal Boutique en el centro de Mesa felizmente acepto nuestra propuesta y nos presto uno de sus vestidos favoritos. Decidimos hacer algo inesperado y creamos una trenza de cola de pescado en vez de un estilo mas de glamour, color de labios purpura, y unos Ray Ban. Liz se sintio que estaba lista para la alfombra roja con este hermoso vestido :)

Thank you Amber,
Gracias Amber

Latino Fashion Live 2013

This past Saturday we had the pleasure of attending a fashion event at the Wild Horse Pass Casino! Returning for a second year the Latino Fashion Live event produced by Arizona Latinos is a show designed to showcase Latin designers who have created a presence in the valley and to highlight the influence that the latino community have in fashion. Sol Sisters had so much fun covering the event, networking and getting a closer look at the work of more talented designers! From local evening gown designer Natalia Acosta to international design house Ted Baker, the show was full of great style and gorgeous people! 

We leave you with a sneak into the evening...make sure to check back later on this week with a post covering more of the designers and the entire show!

Spring into Neon

"Life is so much brighter when we focus on what truly matters..."

For many of us today it's back to that weekly work routine and as I write this post I can't help but think of those people that are as excited with Mondays as they are with Saturdays and Sundays. I am happy to work in an industry I love...yet sometimes I can catch myself wishing of a different type of work week. This time around I am choosing to focus on where I am with my professional career instead of where I am not. I am focusing on what truly matters to me and  because of that my weekdays definitely seem to be getting brighter. 
Best of luck to you this week!

We leave you with a bright look we were excited to share. It all started with the black and white bolero jacket and with a need of some color the skinny jeans quickly made their way in. We wanted the look to pop so when we added the neon yellow top we fell in love with the color blocking combination it created. The ankle boots with fringe and multi-pattern clutch were a fun addition to complete the whole look. 

The look has a couple of this season's popular trends: color blocking, sheer top and black and white stripes.
What trends are you rocking?

"La vida es mas prometedora cuando nos enfocamos en lo que realmente importa..."

Para la mayoria de nosotros hoy es el regreso a la rutina semanal de trabajo y mientras escribo esta entrada no puedo resistir en pensar en aquellas personas que estan igualmente emocionadas con su Lunes que como con sus Sabados y Domingos. Soy feliz trabajando en una industria que quiero...y aun asi me encuento aveces deseando una semana de trabajo muy differente a la que tengo. Esta vez elegi enfocarme en donde estoy en my carrera profesional y no en donde no estoy. Se puede decir que me estoy enfocando en lo que realmente es importante y mis dias entre semana definitivamente son mas prometedores. 
Los mejores deceos para ti esta semana!

Las dejamos con un look brillante que estabamos emocionadas por compartir. El look inicio con la chamara  de blanco y negro. Era necesario incorporar color y los pantalones color purpura fueron la perfecta adicion. Quisimos que el look resaltara asi que cuando agregamos la blusa color amarillo neon nos fascino el contraste de colores y la combinacion que creo. Los botines con flecos y el bolso multi color fueron una adicion divertida para completar el look.

El look incorpora varias de las tendencias mas popular de la temporada: Contraste de colores, blusa transparente y rayas en blanco y negro. 
Que tendencias estas luciendo esta temporada?

A Casual Sunday.

Hey guys...Happy Monday! We had such a nice relaxing Sunday afternoon with great company as we celebrated a dear friends baby shower. The gathering was co-ed so it was nice to enjoy great food and conversation with all our friends in honor of this new baby boy we are all so eagerly awaiting! 

Due to the nature of the event along with a back yard setting we decided to pair this comfy and weather appropriate floor length cotton dress in army green with some casual sandals, a very basic fuss free look. We finished the look off with additional gold accent pieces. The LV tote and the relaxed wavy hair added to the perfect weekend look. We hope you had a wonderful weekend as well!


Hola chicas...Feliz Lunes! Tuvimos un Domingo tan lindo y relajante con gran compania  mientras celebramos a una amiga en su baby shower. La reunion fue para hombres y mujeres, a lo cual nos permitio disfrutar de linda conversasion y rica comida con todos nuestros amigos en honor de este lindo pequeñito que esperamos ansiosamente!

Debido al tipo de evento, lo cual se celebraria en el jardin decidimos combinar este comodo vestido largo de algodon en color verde militar con unas sandalias casuales en color dorado. El vestido fue una pieza muy apropiada para lucir en un dia con clima poco caluroso. Acabamos el look con algunas piezas adicionales de color dorado, bolso LV y cabello ondulado que complementaron el vestido para un look de fin de semana. Esperamos que tambien hayan tenido un lindo fin!

MIM Rocks Fashion 2013

This past Friday night we had the pleasure of attending the MIM Rocks Fashion 2013 event. It promised to be a night of great fashion, styling, spring trends, music and networking...we are happy to report back that it did not disappoint. Brian Hill, director of Phoenix Fashion Week and his team who hosted the event did a great job of making the blogger audience (and by that we are really speaking for the Sol Sisters team) feel as if we were a big contributing part in the success of the event, so thank you for expressing that to us throughout the night! The event was held at the Musical Instrument Museum, a beautiful space dedicated to empowering individuals through music and musical instruments. We were able to learn about a non-profit organization that particularly empowers youth in Arizona to follow their musical dreams...that's pretty awesome! We experienced first hand the influence this organization has had on a very talented young singer who performed for two songs during the show. It was obvious that the music played an integral part in the show.

The evening for the Sol Sisters team started with a media conference where we participated in a Q&A with the boutique owners, designers and stylists being showcased that night in the show. This was a great opportunity to learn more about what makes them successful individually and the value they see in things like social media, among other great questions. We were happy to walk away a little more enlightened by what they were able to share!

The first collaborative team consisted of stylist Rochelle York and Clothes Minded Boutique. We enjoyed seeing color play the biggest part in all of Rochelle's looks and how she showcased some great trends.  Color blocking, florals, high waited bottoms and bold accessories made their way down the run way in all her looks just perfect to get you through the season. It definitely got us all excited about spring! If your a local to the Phoenix valley make your way down to Clothe's Minded in Ahwatukee and experience for yourself the one of a kind pieces they offer!

The second team was made up of stylist Yekatherina Bruner and Divaz Boutique. This was the collection that stood out for us the most for three reasons, one they all managed to share very feminine and delicate elements while still being sexy, secondly all of the pieces that Yekatherina selected had unique cuts and an obvious organic feel to them that just yells spring to us and lastly the music selection that played during her show was the one that spoke to us as much as the looks did! Divaz is already a go to shopping destination for the Sol Sisters team so we know your going to love it if you have not made your way to one of their locations! Divaz also has an online store for those of you that live outside of Arizona...take a peek!

 The third collection of looks was the only menswear line of the night showcasing pieces from Amir's La Voute vintage shop. The collection was styled by the owner himself Amir Saebi. His mix of modern trends and vintage pieces made each and every look stand out for all the right reasons. It was inspiring to see how he dressed up every jacket with neckwear and at the same time gave them a playful and casual feel!  We are looking forward to stopping in soon and seeing more of his amazing inventory, you should too.

The fourth collaborative team consisted of stylist Fawn Cheng and Design house ENVY by Khanh. Khanh was one of the emerging Phoenix Fashion Week designers of 2012 and also one of the two local designers who showcased their spring collection at the event. For us it was very present that he as a designer embraces the female body and allows that to play a part of his creative designs. His use of bold colors and shapes really capture his innovative thinking and creativity throughout the collection. Fawn's use of evening hats with every  look made us stop to analyze what she was trying to say to with such statement...could we read it as sense of sophistication?  mystery? elegance? perhaps even all of the above! We do wish she would have taken bigger risks with the styling and in selecting the rest of the accessories for the looks. We look forward to following first hand where this emerging designer will go next!

The last contributing power team were returning stylist Brian Swan and Designer Bri Seeley of Bri Seeley design house. Bri is Phoenix Fashion Week's designer of the year for 2012 and the other designer of the evening showcasing her spring collection. Full of ombre qualities and feminine flair her designs made a statement down the runway leaving us with a sensation that each look strongly conveys understated sophistication. Brian on the other hand left us wanting to see a bit more and it was a challenge for us to identify his influence throughout the collection. We felt there were multiple looks that where an open canvas to create something more. We look forward to seeing more of him and his talent, there's no doubt he's got a lot to say.

{The stylists of the MIM Rocks Fashion 2013 event}

The night was about paying tribute to Arizona's top stylists, with that said we feel its only appropriate to add in our two cents about what it means for us to style a look...
For us its is an opportunity to take risks in ways where you can trully surprise and inspire people. When we style we see it as if we are creating a recipe and we know all the main ingredients need to work together but then we go beyond that and take an opportunity to really come up with the unexpected and create something that speaks to others.

We had such a great time at the event, being in great company, surrounded by so many fashionistas and more than anything that we had the opportunity to cover it as media guests!

Much Love,
xoxo Sol Sisters
