Cleaning and Poshmark

My birthday is right around the corner. In fact, my birthday is on Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. It is a few days from now and I look forward to a weekend of fun with the people I love the most. My family took me out to dinner and told me that they did not want to let my actual birthday day to go by without doing anything so my dad is going to make me my favorite cake! I am writing to you guys today because I have a new YouTube video out now! I decided to film myself cleaning my awfully messy closet and the process that I personally go through when I clean my closet. I am going to try my best to maintain the cleanliness of my closet and break old habits of just tossing clothes here and there. If you would like to see how I cleaned my closet, please give my video a watch, thumbs up and subscribe to my channel!

One thing that I did not mention in my video, but I will mention here, is that I now have a Poshmark account! For those of you who aren’t familiar with this app, it is an app where you can buy and sell all your fashion items to and from others. I was hesitant to make a Poshmark account since I dislike the fact that everything needs to be an app you must download on your phone, but I went ahead and got myself Poshmark after re-seller stores did not take my items for their worth.

You guys, I have some never before worn dresses from Gianni Bini and Hell Bunny and some other cool things you may like! Cleaning out my closet made me really ask myself whether or not certain items still needed a space in my closet and because of this, anyone who finds me on Poshmark can look at some of my items and purchase it! I promise you guys that I do not charge that much for these designer items!

My Experience: Dillards 50% Off Clearance Sale

You guys…

People are so crazy, it’s not even funny. When you hear a security guard tell people not to push, shove or run in the store, you know that sale has got to be good…

You all know I am a bargain shopper and I love a good sale. Dillards had their additional 50% off already marked down items and you bet your peach, there was a crowd waiting outside Dillards this morning around 9:30 a.m. before their doors opened at 10!

I decided to take the opportunity to film from my point of view, the crowd I saw outside the store’s doors this morning.


Dillards always has these sales the first day of every year and it’s a one day only sale which is the main reason so many people go crazy over it! I took some video of the crowd outside the store and the long line I stood in just to get to the shoe section!

If you want to see those videos, please find me on Instagram @alamocitysara to view that craziness! The shoes and purses were the craziest sections because lines had to be formed and only so many people at a time were allowed to go in at a time. The shoe section gave everyone who stood in line a sheet of paper for people to write down what shoe they wanted, size and color they requested (see image below.) You had to stand in 3 lines before you can even get to the register. The first line is just to get into the department. The second one is where you go to request your size. The third line is to pick-up your shoes and then you can head to the register to pay.


I stood in line for a long time and took a chance on a pair of shoes. Sadly, I’ll have to return them since the size didn’t work out for me. This brings me to my next point, when you participate in sales like these, you only have 3 days after the purchase to return the item you bought if it doesn’t work out. I will probably find myself at Dillards tomorrow returning the shoes that didn’t work out for me, but at least I can get my money back and use it for something that will work out for me.

My family had more luck than I did! My mom was able to get the comforter set that she wanted, my brother scored a pair of name brand pants and my father got a pretty cool jacket! The rest of my first day of 2018 consisted of time with family. I got to see my cousins, aunts, uncles and grandparents. This includes my grandpa who will be turning 90 years old this April! I am so grateful that he is able to see 2018. He is the most interesting man you’ll meet! Now I can relax in the comfort of my home with my family and I wouldn’t want my life any other way right now. God is good. I’m honestly just glad I was able to return home with my arms and legs still attached to my body!

Stay Stylish and Hello 2018!


Closet Series: My Shoes

Okay, I mentioned on here that I was going to do a closet series in one of my previous posts. If you are new here, this means that I am going to be doing a series on my YouTube channel where I show viewers exactly what is in my closet. I am dedicating videos to focus on a specific collection of clothing or accessories, so I started off this series by showing you my shoe collection!

Being a fashionista that is actively on the lookout for current fashion trends, but on a budget at the same time, I tend to hold onto a lot of my items for several reasons. First off, trends from the past always have the potential to come back. Secondly, if my items are in good condition and fit well still, why would I toss them unless my personal style has changed? Lastly, I just love having several options and pieces to work with!

I am going to put my latest YouTube video on here to show you all my shoe collection. Just a fair warning, I have A LOT of shoes. In fact, this video is almost 20 minutes because of all the shoes I have! I encourage all my followers on here to subscribe to my YouTube channel, especially if you love fashion! Other than my love for fashion, I have a deep love for music, so I added some music that I really love to the background of this video, including a song from a young, local artist here in my hometown! Always support local businesses and local music. By doing so, you are helping someone’s dream get that much closer to them! I hope to see you all subscribe to my YouTube channel 🙂

Thank you for reading and Stay Stylish!

Rebecca Minkoff: Guitar Pick Hinged Cuff Review

Rebecca Minkoff is a fashion designer with her own global brand where she sells apparel, jewelry, handbags and even footwear for women just to name a few things. The CEO, co founder, and brother to Rebecca, is Uri Minkoff who has his own line of men’s accessories. I had never heard about Rebecca Minkoff until my father gave me one of my Christmas gifts which was Rebecca Minkoff’s Guitar Pick Hinged Cuff bracelet in gold.


My father and I both love music. We both get really passionate about new music and classic tunes and introducing people to new music. So when my father saw a bracelet with a guitar pick that said Love on it, he purchased it for me.  I can go on and on about spending the majority of my childhood in the CD room listening to my dad’s CD collection and any albums that had interesting artwork or an interesting band name, but I want to dedicate this blog to reviewing this product.

First off, this isn’t something that I asked my father to get me for Christmas. He told me that he was shopping for my mom, when he saw this bracelet and thought of me (my heart is melting right now) and he himself had never heard of Rebecca Minkoff. He found the bracelet inside a department store, but it can also be found on her website at

I LOVE the bracelet. My initial reaction when I saw it was to put it on! I removed the tag and clipped on the bracelet on my left wrist. I grew curious about this new brand that I went straight to her website to look at more things. If you sign up with your email, you can get 15% off your first purchase!

As my day had progressed on Christmas, I was super happy to show off my bracelet when I noticed a problem…

The $58 bracelet’s clip was not getting the grip it needed to stay on very long.

If I could give this bracelet five stars, I would have. But for a $58 bracelet, you would think that the clip used to secure it around your wrist was a better quality. I would put on my jacket, it would snap off. I would raise my hand, it would snap off. I would shake someone’s hand, it would snap off. Unbelievable and definitely unacceptable.

When I told my father, he had told me that someone had left a review of this same bracelet with the exact same complaint. I am going to review it on Rebecca Minkoff’s website and say the truth. The truth meaning that the bracelet is beautiful, but really needs a better way to secure itself around your wrist. The part of the bracelet that I’m referring to is the one circled below.


My father was able to take care of this issue by securing the clip together, and tapping it gently with a hammer to flatten the little ball point so that the clip wouldn’t break away from it so easily. Although the solution was a simple one, customers should not have to do this at all. Especially for $58 worth.

The items in her site are overpriced, but she does have an under $100 section and an under $50 section. Jewelry and accessories are the most affordable options on there. Never be afraid to give an honest opinion or experience about something new. I love that Rebecca Minkoff is a young fashion designer who made her dream happen, so the least I can do is be honest with her about my first impression of one of her products so that her company knows what they need to pay more attention to.

I love my bracelet, just not the hassle. Always remain grateful and do not be afraid to give new things a try!

Stay Stylish!


Last Day of School Outfit + Future Plans


I know many of you hear these words when someone has had enough of whatever is going on and are really frustrated. HOWEVER…I am actually saying this in total happiness and joy because I have officially completed the Fall semester of 2017! I can finally focus more on my personal endeavors for the next two weeks, which means I will hopefully have some more YouTube videos posted on my channel for you all to see as well as more blog posts on here. I still post daily on my Instagram account which you can find at: alamocitysara

I miss writing on here and I know that I haven’t been as active as I have in the past, but with the workload of being a full-time student out of the way, I know this will change. I have only received one final grade which was a 97 in Business Communication. I am still waiting for my other grades, but as soon as I get them, I will let you all know. With that said, I want to take a moment to congratulate anyone who may be graduating this year! I personally do not know anyone who is, but for those all around the world who are…


Although I am done with school for now until Spring, I wanted to show you guys what I wore for the last day of school. I wanted to end this tough semester on a good note, so I wore my power color: Red!


My mom thinks that I am obsessed with plaid and you know what? She’s absolutely right! Especially red plaid! Black and red just go so well together and I just love wearing these colors. More than half my closet consists of these two colors together and I wouldn’t want my wardrobe to be any other way. A lot of those who have red hair refrain from wearing red clothing because they think it will be a bit of an overkill, but in my book I strongly disagree.

To quote Sheryl Crow’s lyrics, “If it makes you happy, it can’t be that bad!”

Everything in this outfit are pieces that I’ve had for at least two years. The plaid top is from Macy’s and the brand is Material Girl. You cannot see it in this picture, but on the back of this blouse where my shoulders are, there are black sequins! Sequins are a must in your outfit if you plan on going out on New Years Eve!

My leather skirt was on clearance at Express. Still a shopper on a budget here! The tights are from Target and the flats are from Shoedazzle. I’m due for a new pair of black flats now that I think about it. I also want to bring up the fact that when I woke up yesterday morning, I had no idea what to wear. When in doubt, go for one of your go-to outfits or keep your outfit neutral with a pop of color. This will give you an effortlessly cool look for the day.


  1. Loved Ones

Other than my fashion endeavors, I plan on spending some time with loved ones. I get so busy with work and school that it is always a struggle for me to make time for everyone I care about that does not live under the same roof as I do. I struggle with the fact that I spread myself too thin because I try to make time for everyone. So even though I am looking forward to spending time with friends, I am also going to challenge myself to continue to put myself first.

2. Fitness

I am also going to try to focus on my fitness during these next two weeks. I am a runner, but I hate treadmills. I only want to run if it’s in the great outdoors, but if it’s cold outside, I am not going to want to leave my warm house! I also rely on the gym on campus and at work to help me stay active and fit, but if the facility is closed, so is the fitness center! Let’s not forget the fact that my hardcore Mexican family is going to be making a ton of tamales and all these other goodies and I cannot say no to food!

3. Reading, Writing, Drawing

When I am not drowning in homework or focusing on fashion and I get some time to myself, I am usually doing one of these things. I am going to be reading a few books, starting with The Night Circus by Erin Morgenstern and Save Me From Myself by Brian Welch, (Korn’s former guitarist). I’ve read Welch’s book before, but I want to read it again! The Night Circus is a book that I started reading, but never got to finish. I already have these two books on hold at my local library.


I hope that anyone who is a student enjoys their free time as well as all hard-working employees who are getting some free time during the holiday season. I hope everyone gets to have a great time and enjoy themselves. While not on here, you all will now know what I will be up to!

Thanks for reading and stay stylish!

Pumpkin Patch Dates and YouTube Videos…It Just Keeps Getting Better!

Every fall calls for a photo shoot in the pumpkin patch! This is exactly what I did Wednesday and I am going to be using the footage for a future video on what to wear on a Pumpkin Patch date.

I am going to release this video right after Halloween on perfect things to wear on a pumpkin patch date! I am going to show you my top three favorite outfits to wear to the pumpkin patch that are perfect for fall and practical for us southern girls who are still experiencing warm weather right now.

The video will hopefully be released on Nov. 1st which lands on a Wednesday.

I want my channel to release videos on Wednesdays every week. I couldn’t decide on a day so I figured I would just go for the day that lands right in the middle of the week. This is also the day where I have the most free time. I also got my friend Nikole Jackson to help me in this video. She is a beauty guru with her own YouTube channel and is really great at what she does so I highly recommend subscribing to her channel and following her on social media if you have not already! I will be putting her information at the end of my video so you guys can check out her work!

Here is a sneak peak of the 3 outfits that I filmed for this video.




As you probably noticed, all of these outfits have the color burgundy. This is definitely my go-to color for fall and my favorite color is red, so I naturally gravitated towards created these outfits and felt that the pumpkin patch really makes the outfits stand out.

Other colors I enjoy wearing for fall are emerald green, black and a plum purple. Would you guys be interested in seeing some outfits in these colors?

On a side note: I have released my Pocahontas video on my YouTube channel! I did a little more stuff with the editing and am still messing around with it. Let me know what you did and while you are there, be sure to subscribe to my channel! On my channel you’ll find fashion, some makeup, and some overall silliness.

My Pocahontas video is right below for you to watch. I have 4 subscribers already!


Outfits of The Week: Part 6

Hello everyone! Welcome back to my blog! It’s about that time where we reflect on the outfits worn this week so let’s get started!

Monday- This skeleton shirt is from Target and of course I was sporting a Halloween inspired shirt to kick off my week. Even though the weather here is all over the place, I am still trying to get into the Halloween spirit and get ready for fall. I paired this blouse with some faded purple pants and wore some grey shoes from Shoedazzle to top it all off.


Tuesday- For Tuesday I wore a burgundy skirt, also from Target, and decided to pair it with black tights, boots and blouse. Since red is my favorite color, I decided that I would wear red lipstick and a red rose necklace that I got from Hottopic several years ago. The skirt is a soft suede material and I love that the studded pocket detail gives it a vintage-y look to it. The necklace also looks like it would have been worn in medieval times, while the rest of this outfit was kept pretty modern. This outfit was my favorite one from this whole week.

Wednesday- You know I love my high-waisted jeans from Fashion Nova. I wore high-waisted jeans by them on both Wednesday and Thursday because they are the best pants ever! I wanted to look put-together yet stay comfortable on this day so I wore some comfortable flats and layered a skull kimono I got from Hottopic, over a simple black tank-top. Still in that Halloween spirit!

Thursday- Thursday is usually my most casual day out of the week as far as outfits go because this is usually my longest day and I cannot afford to have any wardrobe malfunctions interfering me. Simple does not have to be boring though! Luckily bright colored tops with lace detail can save the day! Now-a-days even sneakers are fashionable. I love these sneakers from Steve Madden. I have also worn them in one of my previous ‘Outfits of the week’ blog posts so I’m sure they look very familiar.


Each week continues to fly by so fast! I am pleased to say that I am surviving my classes and slowly but surely learning how to edit videos. I am very excited to see things come together! Let me know which outfit was your favorite!

Have a great weekend and stay stylish!
