I’m so happy to announce my collaboration Boga Mexico! This new online fashion magazine invited me to be part of their columnists sections which I was delighted to be part of. I took this great opportunity to explain more about my life and the real meaning behind The Street Styler and the not-so-glamorous yet intriguing world of fashion. 
The photos that I included in the article were taken by the amazing photographer Pepe Almazan during his visit to New York City. I went for a feminine-chic look that matched the streets of Soho, my favorite area in the city. 
Read the article here: http://bogamexico.com/sara-castillo/ yes, I’m even more happy that I could write an article in spanish again! Hope you enjoy it. 
From the bottom of my heart, thank you Boga Mexico for the amazing opportunity and to Pepe Almazan Photography for the collaboration (wait to see more of our shoot on the blog!) 
Love,
S

All About The Fur

Finally is starting to feel like a real winter, which means pulling out all the chunky sweaters and socks. 
For somebody like me that is used to temperatures above 100’s, this is an interesting experience. With the first cold day (which was nothing compare to is what’s yet to come) not even layering all my light-weight pieces was enough. 
One thing is going on vacations to Colorado, enjoying the snow and the outdoor activities to come back to your cozy cabin, put on your cashmere pajamas and enjoy a nice cup of hot coco by the fire… well, that just lasts for a couple of days and does NOT happen in our everyday lives so, I definitely need to start working on my real winter essentials. 
Chunky sweaters, fur and boots, that’s what comes to my mind. This cute navy sweater with fur on the sleeves is one of my favorites. Not only is appropriate for day-to-night but it is actually really warm in the inside!
Sunday walks around South Street Seaport are becoming my favorite, and now next to my photographer Jessie I will be able to bring you more breathless sights in the city that never sleeps. 
Love,
S

Lately I’ve been wearing too much pink. Not the bright pink color that makes your eyes hurt but the soft, girly, pretty pink. Maybe it’s my inner girly-girl but I thought in doing a quick post with this outfit to remember  you all about October as our Breast Cancer Awareness Month. We all know it as the pink power month to create awareness but it is also about taking action and prevent this disease. 
Even though you may not have a relative fighting against breast cancer, you know a friend of a friend, and I truly believe that’s enough reason to have the motivation to fight. We all dream of a better world so people like you and me live happy, but the only way to make it happen is by taking action and have the willingness to help.

Piperlime & Moments of Chic

I’m so happy to announce my first collaboration with Piperlime – Moments of Chic!
Living in a city like New York is always about being comfortable yet making a statement. Yes, it is the tricky challenge of everyday.
No matter how glamorous or extravagant your life is, you have to make your #ootd comfy for the streets. Trust me, is never as glamorous as it seems. Lucky for me, Piperlime  gave me the perfect outfit for me. I was excited when I got my package, not only because pastels are my favorite colors, but this blush midi skirt is right on time for the season. Enough of skinny jeans for a while – There’s always a way to make that summer-fall transition appropriate in a blush skirt. 
In this case, for a Sunday morning walking around South Street Seaport, I wore my Piperlime long sleeve top and midi skirt accessorized with my studded silver necklace, camel booties and my favorite black fedora hat to give what I call a bohemian-girly-girl vibe.
As the Moments of Chic phrase would say, is all about making every day and every occasion a moment of chicness, a moment to remember – and since I couldn’t agree more, I am very excited to be part of such a beautiful collaboration.
Thank you Piperlime for making me part of your #momentsofchic and for the fabulous outfit! How do you dress for a moment of chic?
Love,

Before the fresh breeze of the Fall hit the city, I needed to wear my favorite baby blue midi skirt. Although at the beginning I felt half-naked, I must admit this is one of my favorite looks – flirty, girly and polished. This proves that getting out of your comfort zone sometimes can turn into something great. 
Where did I wore this outfit? Well, I needed to take advantage and wore this beauty for Ricardo Seco’s fashion show. Yes, a genius/proud mexican designer presenting his collection at New York Fashion Week. 

Mexico is rich in culture, colorful clothing, delicious food and joyful people, so this look is just what I needed to wear to represent my country in such an important event. I added a white crop top to make my look more bright and girly; the lace detail on the bottom creates a silhouette that makes the look more sophisticated for the occasion. 

Nothing makes me more proud of my country than when I see people fighting for their dreams and making them happen, and so is the case of Mr. Seco and his “Dream” collection presented at the World Trade Center during New York Fashion Week. It was an honor being invited to such an amazing presentation. Looking at his Sporty-chic black and white looks walking down the runway combined with colorful accessories that represent our mexican culture brought a smile to my face and reminded me proudly that #wearemexico ! 

Love,
S

Walking on the streets of Manhattan is always exciting. On my free time I love to carry my red Nikon camera and see what new perspective and stylist tips I can grab from the streets – therefore my blog “The Street Styler.”
Well, this time was the beginning of Fashion week and while I was walking towards the Lincoln Center, I could see the extra glamorous details in some peoples clothes and accessories – while I kept walking it was not only one out of five in the street but even groups of people with extraordinary sense of style as if they were taking from a magazine ad.
The closer I was to the Lincoln Center, the more contagious was the environment of truly Fashionistas walking around and making the street their runway. Woman with transparent boots, oversized puffy skirts and even some of them walking with their dogs as accessories – and the boys with clutch bags, ridiculous cool sunglasses and extra layers of shirts that made them the perfect gentleman look.
New York Fashion Week is always the most expected time of the year for the fashion industry, is like a wake up call for every one involved – be it magazine editors, public relations companies, designers and models to even bloggers, make up artists and upcoming designers. It is the time where standing out is a challenge and taking your network seriously is the key to succeed. 
There I was walking around Lincoln Center with my red camera matching my red lips, ready to take some shots for today’s post. I must confess I was nervous about of the unknown but once I got there I felt I was finally in the right place. It is a breathtaking experience and luckily for my first day in fashion week, it was easier and fun as it looks like. 
Love,
S

The Romper – Part #2

As the days go by, I’m starting to feel like home. The difference between home and my new home are the new routines and the so many different things to do in the city. So many places to go, so many people to meet every week and so many outfits for each particular event. 
I believe there’s no better way to spend a weekend afternoon than with the perfect view and a fabulous outfit. Even though is the second time I post this floral romper, I love to play styling my pieces and transform them for different occasions – in this case I went for no accessories, just a simple messy bun and my bold orange pumps. 
The Grand Banks was the place of today’s post – for a boat-bar the best option is fresh, fab and comfortable. Add oysters, amazing ceviche, refreshing cocktails, perfect Hudson view and new friends, and honestly, what else can you ask for? This is what I call MY type of weekend. 

Love,
S
