Be Grateful, Be Humble II 12

Let us be grateful to people who make us happy, they are the charming gardeners who make our souls blossom.
— Marcel Proust

Be grateful, Be humble. This is one of the most important things I have learned through my 16 ( almost 17 ) years of life. It is so important to be grateful for the things we take for granted in life. This may be the school we attend, our talents, our parents, friends, finances, country and so so much more. I think it’s so important to take a few minutes out of our busy lives to really appreciate life and everything it throws at us, whether it be good or bad. Don’t forget to stay humble as well. Humble people go far in life whether you want to agree with me or not. That’s my mind for y’all today! Now let’s get into this CUTE outfit :)


From my childhood I have always been the biggest girly girl, so dresses are kinda my thing. I wear dresses every Sunday but during weekdays I have always felt out of place wearing one. Going back to my girly girl routes and after seeing inspiration all over instagram, I decided to create this look . I decided to wear a turtle neck I recently thrifted with a denim dress I stole from my little sisters closet ( sorry Danielle ). To make the look a bit more casual I decided to throw on some bright white sneakers , white sunnies and called it a look.





Turtleneck shirt: Thrifted

Dress: Forever 21

Socks: Nike

Shoes: Airforce 1s

Sunglasses: Forever 21

Yes. I know I’m SUPER late on this trend…..


WOW. This trend is honestly one that I have had my eye on for the past few weeks. Even though I am not someone who has been into patterns, and what not, I am super into this trend. I love how this trend brings out a sense of confidence and boldness without intent. I am not an expert on trends, but I love to keep an eye out for them. This will be a regular post on my blog and I am not intending to spend a lot of time talking about the trend but I would love to keep you guys posted by showing you through the pictures and outfits I find all over Instagram and Pinterest.

whew what a day yesterday was…


On days like yesterday I like to ask myself. What does love really mean? Is it really physical touch and gifts? Is it just the thought of having someone to keep us from reverting to our lonely selves? is it really just the deep affection we feel for someone who’s been with us for a certain period of time? I always think back to this verse for comfort and true understanding of what love really is…

4 Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud 5 or rude. It does not demand its own way. It is not irritable, and it keeps no record of being wronged. 6 It does not rejoice about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. 7 Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful, and endures through every circumstance. ( 1 corinthians 13:4-7)


Whether you are christian or not, this is the foundation of love. To me, Love is sacrifice. it’s putting someones happiness before your own without damaging yourself. If you are in a relationship with someone and you find your self impatient, rude, jealous, proud, keeping records of wrong, is it really true love? Love has its ups and downs, but if we aren’t focusing and basing our love on these principles, is it love at all? There are so many relationships that are built solely on lust and desires that shouldn’t be the base of any relationship, but our generation seems to be obsessed with the fact that it’s okay. It breaks my heart to see more and more marriages failing and it looks like it is getting to the point where marriage might not be the goal after all, when it should be the primary focus. Love isn’t something that is easy to describe, in my experience it’s not easy at all. At a young age it’s hard to describe what Love is or to even comprehend the complexity of it, but all I know is that It’s something we all can’t live with out. The anticipation of loving someone for the rest of your life, or even learning to love the people right down your street, is definitely not as easy task, but it is not hard to take a step in the right direction.

That’s my mind on Love right now, I’m only 16 so hey what do I really know? Hope you guys enjoyed this post, I see y’all in my next post :))



As you all know I love finding new and upcoming creatives and reading all about what they do and who they are. I was recently reading Teen Vogues 2018’s 21 under 21 and saw this upcoming designer making clothing for women of colour based out of the 16th century spanish renaissance era. I don’t know about you but I could not stop raving about how creative that was. She realized there was not enough representation of women of colour in the painting of royals and decided to take that and bring it into modern day fashion!

Temi Adeola, also known as Tia, is a rising designer who was initially based in Lagos, Nigeria. In an Interview I recently watched about her NYFW debut with Nylon magazine, Tia explained how moving to New York truly inspired her to become more bold with her outfits and to take them to the next level. She wants to be able to create a look that would immediately allow girls to feel extra BOLD and CONFIDENT. Tia also added the sheer look to celebrate the female body, and the ruffles ( her signature look), to embellish the feminine look.

This is a bit of a different post because this year I really want to emphasize versatility and creative content on this blog. Hope you guys are having a great start to your year and are still keeping up with your goals, cos I’ve already seen some people vow to change in 2020 already. 2018 was the year I tested out the waters in the blogging and creative industry and I truly do feel that If I add as much hard work and commitment to this passion of mine, this blog will continue to grow and be successful.


So, For this post I am going to be showing you guys the sneakers I feel were in this year ( 2018 ), and have been extremely popular. PLUS, I really want all of these hehe. I am not a HUGE sneaker head, but as my style evolves more into the streetwear side of fashion It’s something I have started to look into and love. There is not much to explain about these shoes so I will include the instagram handle of each shoe in each pic so you guys can check them out :)


Hope y’all liked this post and found inspiration to go out and get some cuteee sneakers, okay love y’all

xoxo SJ


It’s another Fashion post! You guys really like it when I post these, so I came through.


So, I’d like to thank Misguided for sponsoring us. No i’m kidding I wish LOL, but as you can see my friend Samantha and I are both styling the cargo pants we both bought from Misguided USA. The quality of these pants in my opinion were the perfect fit. They are really high waisted which is something I was really hoping they’d be, and I was excited to see that they came through with what I expected. Since this was the first time I had personally bought anything online, I would definitely rate misguided a 9/10 and would love to shop there again.

My only disclaimer about buying clothes from misguided is that since they are an American store there will be an extra tax that will be sent a few days after you checkout your items, just so you are aware.








So, I hope you guys enjoyed this post. Tell me if you want to see more reviews or anything at all!. Be sure to check out my instagram @stellajanexo :))

This is me stepping up my game and posting more outfits, you’re welcome.


As you all know, I am 16 and a junior in high school, This means my future is coming up fast. Sometimes I feel like I have it all together and I know what I want to do for sure, but recently that’s all changed. I have always been so scared of going for my dreams of working solely in the fashion industry even if it’s not what my parents are others want for me. It’s kinda scary, following your dreams. I think thoughts like what if i don’t succeed? what if my parents were right? should I have become a doctor all along?

I was having a little chat with my dad and I asked him a really good question. I asked if he wakes up happy to work everyday. He told me how much he loves what he does and advised me that it’s my life and I should do what I know will make me happy in the future. I was always scared of asking my dad, I really don’t know why. Maybe it was the feeling of thinking he would be disappointed in me, but look how that turned out!


My advice to anyone who feels the needs to go against their passion to impress others is stop. Its your life! You should be able to follow your dreams, BE A RISK TAKER, live out your passion and most importantly to be happy. I know it sounds super cliche but TRUST ME, you will be happy in the end. I am not saying I suddenly have my whole life figured out but, it’s definitely a step in the right direction.


Hope you guys enjoyed todays post! Let me know if you don’t like it or love it more when I include stuff in my personal life in my posts, I honestly just feel the need to encourage people out there and help them if they are going through any hard times. If you guys ever need anyone to talk to remember I am always there :))))

Technically I look super cold and not gonna lie it was 3 degrees outside, but I got to shoot pics for y’all so we’re all good! I am honestly IN LOVE with the layered gold chain necklace trend right now. Not only is it a big fashion trend, it’s representing hip hop and rap culture which I respect and love as well.


I recently went thrifting with my dad and that is where I found this Amazing utility vest. I wasn’t sure how to go about styling this to start out, but after trying it out with a few different outfits, I realized I love the pop of colour it gives with a monochromatic base.





Hope you guys enjoyed this post. I will make sure to come through with more outfit posts since you guys really seem to love those. Make sure to follow my instagram to know when I post :))

These are the kind of videos I used to love to watch on youtube because honestly, your girl needed the tips. I am technically not completely broke since I have a job, but was I spending all my money on unnecessary clothes with probably my whole paycheque? Maybe. I decided to share with y’all some tips that I have found to be recently useful so you guys still look good but, yunno, on a budget.

  1. Quality over Quantity

When it comes to buying a lot of clothes versus quality clothing, I used to go for the quantity method. I thought buying a lot of cheap clothes would be better but trust me, it’s completely wrong. When you buy clothes that that are cheaper, the colours tend to fade faster and the overall quality of the clothing item goes downwards incredibly fast. I’m not saying all stores that don’t have expensive clothing immediately are going to be bad quality, but sometimes you can just tell. Some ways you can immediately tell if something is higher quality is if you can see the strong stitching, strong fabrics, metal zippers, etc. When I started buying more clothing that were higher in quality, I wanted to wear the item more and find more ways to style it as well.

2. Wear Accessories

Accessorize. This is the one that helps me the most honestly. You could wear the most BASIC outfit but add hoops, add a few layers of gold necklaces, add rings and honestly you look 100X better. It adds an expensive look. It shows that you put a bit of effort into your outfit even if you didn’t really intend to. This is probably my biggest advice because I just started wearing more accessories and I feel better and more confident in my outfits as well.


3. Go Thrifting

This is hands down my favourite tip. Thrifting is really where it’s at. When I go thrifting since I’m into men’s streetwear I am always finding the nice hoodies, sweatshirts and pants in the mens section. I love to go through and find clothes that I can cut and make my own so they aren’t the same old boring clothes I find. When you go thrifting it is so easy to find brands that are high end and vintage like tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, Levi, kappa, champion, fila and many more. I highly advice people to check out thrifting!!

4. Invest in the classics

This is one of the most important tips. Having a balanced closet is more necessary before you can go out and be adventurous with your style and everything else. Some staples that everyone should have are a plain white and black shirt, long sleeved and short sleeved, a pair of jeans, a jean jacket, a sweatshirt, and many more. Once you have all these it is easier to build outfits from them. While researching I found that if you have 20 shirts, to go with 10 pairs of pants, 5 pairs of shorts and 2 skirts, can apparently make over a hundred different outfits which is honestly amazing. SO, start slow, when you are on a budget the best thing to do is make sure you have all of the classics before you go out and expand.


5. Look for Sales

My last but not least favourite tip, is look for sales. I used to be someone who just sees something I liked and honestly just bought it. When you look for sales you really do save money that you could use to invest in other pieces and build your closet slowly through that method. I use apps/extensions like shoptagr that tell me when my favourite items go on sale. ( you should all really check out the app!) It is just a better overall tip to save money, even though it may take a lot of patience and waiting for that specific item to go on sale, trust me , its really helpful.

Okay if you know me you know that I LOVE fall, like I’m OBSESSED. Fall is just the perfect weather, it’s not hot and It’s not super cold. For people like me who live in Vancouver, it mainly means theres a lot of rain but I don’t even go out that much so thats’ not that bad. When i do go out, it’s finally time for me to layer and experiment with different pieces and to me that is what fashion is all about. So in this post get ready to read all about the latest and most crucial trends for this season. xoxo



Layering is for sure an absolute MUST when it coms to fall. When it is in the summer months, we try to wear as little as possible, on the contrary, fall is about wearing as much as you can to keep you warm, while looking cute as well. With layering you can layer sweaters, jackets, scarves, jewelry, and many more. Layering is honestly up to you, there is no “ fancy” way to layer. Below are some of the best examples from fashion inspirations all over instagram and google who take it to a more creative level whiles still staying cozy and warm.




Now this is the trend I have been wanting to hop on for the past few months. Statement belts. The two that You have probably seen a lot on social media, are probably the Gucci or off-white statement belt. If you go for a more simpler belt like the Gucci belt it gives your outfit more of a minimalistic, girly but bold view. It doesn’t even have to be Gucci, as long as it is a belt with a bigger statement piece to display it works! On the other hand if you wear a belt like the off-white belt you gain a more creative, extravagant, fashionable look because it is not any other belt looking at the length and many more other factors. I definitely want to invest in a belt like one of these and you should too to spice it up this season.




This is honestly a crucial must have for this season for sure! Not only does these keep you insanely warm, you can pair one of these with just about anything.You could dress up any lazy outfit just by putting on a cute coat and you are good to go. I love to wear hoodies and sweats at home and honestly when I want to leave my house I just put on my long fur jacket and people think i tried! So this trend is for all you lazy ones who still wanna look fashionable.. I got youu :)




The puffer jacket. This jacket was really big last year and I’m really hoping it’s going to come back this season. WHETHER it comes back OR NOT I still say its one of the cutest essentials to have for fall. It instantly adds a street effect to your outfit even when you don’t intend it. It can be dressed up or down, just like the previous coat trend. I will be definitely on the look out for one of these jackets this season and I recommend you do too!




PATENT LEATHER. This is a trend that is currently uprising this season and it’s honestly everywhere. When you walk into designer stores, basic stores in the mall or even thrift stores, you will see something to do with patent leather. It could be pants, shoes, clothes they have it. It brings a really edgy vibe and make you look more expensive and more elegant that you even intended to be. I for sure will be trying to find some patent boots for the season!!


Hope you guys enjoyed today’s post !! if any of these trends were interesting and you decided to buy any of these, be sure to message me on any of my social medias or send me an email :)

Street style is the style that has evolved faster than any other style that has evolved throughout the years. It's not only seen as a style, it is seen a an attitude, a representation of someones life. It is easy for everyone to be dressed glamorously and be photographed, but it is intriguing to see fashion icons being looked up to for what they wear out of the spotlight. With inspiration from Music , Social media and various fashion icons, this fast spreading new way of style has started to affect our culture in a captivating and incredibly fast way. This post will include a pictorial collection of the biggest street style icons back then, and some that are inspiring to me right now.

OKAY so first off I'd like to apologize for being so inactive on this blog.. I have so many visions and dreams for this blog but lack of focus and school and life was just getting in the way of what I love. Since School is finally out for summer I have way more time to invest in this blog and try new things and finally find my sense of direction for this platform.

Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
- Deuteronomy 31:6

Wow.. its been a while. Honestly I've been dealing with a lot of doubts and fazes in my life where I feel like nothing in my life is going to work out as planned but, the one thing I see I come back to is Fashion. It might sound cheesy but fashion doesn't stress me out, it doesn't make me worry or upset me, it rather brings me joy and brings out the brightest parts of me. I'm so thankful I have this blog to show everyone who I am under the stress and influence of the media. This is my confidence. This is me.

Hey guys!! 

Sorry I have been so inactive lately ;( If you follow my Instagram you would know that I actually went to Portland, Oregon last weekend for a conference called "Generation Unleashed". This conference was an amazing experience and I truly felt like my relationship with God, and the rest of the people I went to the conference with grew closer in so many ways. 



This outfit is the outfit I wore on the first day of the conference. It looked a bit extra compared to everyone there who was there in basically jeans and a T-shirt but I'm Stella and being extra is kinda my thing hehe.



I wore this red cropped sweatshirt from H&M, with my favourite black ripped jeans that I kinda just took from my mom so I'm not sure where it's from, with my faux fur coat and finally my vans old skools. The fur coat really makes the outfit look a bit more relaxed and comfortable but it also makes it look really over the top and cute. That's why I kinda wear it a bit too much. 



My friend Keithleen, wore an outfit really similar to the theme of my outfit as well. She wore a stripped shirt from old navy and a red puffer jacket from garage. She wore them with a pair of black jeans and high top converse.



Anyways, I hope you guys enjoyed this post and love this outfit as much as I do :))



Hey guys!!



Before I get into the post I just wanted to say I really like blogging on this platform. I really don't know why. I just feel so excited to come on and blog. It used to feel like something I had to do but now I'm taking it at my own pace and I'm really starting to enjoy it. 



This week was probably one of the hardest weeks I've gone through already this year. I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with life and who I am and the person I was becoming. I realized I was neglecting the real me and settling for the parts of me that other people are supposed to like. TRUST ME it wasn't really that big of a deal I felt that way for about 2 days and got back into my devotions and I feel WAY BETTER. Now to the outfits.



As you can see I really love my mom jeans so I paired those with a t-shirt dress that I actually tied up into a shirt. I finished off the look with my favourite grey cardigan and a purse I recently bought from Aldo :))



Hope you guys enjoyed this post!!

The harder you work for something, the greater you’ll feel when you achieve it.

Hey yalllsss,

So I decided to take a turn and talk a lot more about my life when I post outfits just so you guys can see a little more insight on my life and you can get to know me better post by post. This post was taken on a really rainy day, I mean it was pouring. I still wanted to shoot an outfit so of course I dragged my friend paula outside with me :) This is a really basic outfit but if you are into more minimal fashion like me I think you'll appreciate it more.


I just got back to school from Christmas break and it's honestly already stressing me out like shoutout to all the teachers who think it's okay to go right back to giving pages of homework when they obviously know you aren't ready for it. I totally love you.

The weather in Vancouver is honestly another thing adding to my stress. It's so cold and wet and it doesn't help anyone out. Going out is always a problem. Why can't we honestly just have sun for a couple months like L.A. OML. I still kinda like Vancouver I mean It's not the best but It's still prettier compared to other cities so II'm still grateful. If anyone wants to they can still come visit.

Anyways enjoy the outfit and have a good rest of your week :))
