Meet Sarah

I’ve always been passionate about art, music, dance, fashion and film, but after getting a degree in Film Studies and after many cold winters in the Great White North, I decided to move to Maui to pursue other passions, namely surfing. I’ve lived in Maui for seven years and am so moved by the friendliness of people here, particularly my incredibly kind and supportive husband, my altruistic and gracious sister, and my spirited terrier-poodle. Living in Maui has really helped me to appreciate the simpler things in life, but my love for fashion has never gone away! After doing various administrative jobs, I worked for a jewelry designer and also as a sales representative for a few apparel lines.

Currently I work for a local clothing designer, who is unique, creative and encouraging of other women. It’s been an enriching and fun experience, and has helped me to realize that I want to explore another passion of mine: teaching. Now at 30, I’m getting ready to return to Canada, to pursue a Bachelor’s of Education in Adult Education. I’m excited to embark on this next stage in my life, and thrilled to wear Stella Carakasi’s fabulous pieces throughout this adventure!

What Inspires Me

I’m inspired by wild untouched seascapes, sublimely architected gardens, absorbing books, invigorating Autumn days, and road trips to small towns where I can just wander around and explore. I’m equally inspired by courageous women, whether they work in politics, music, the literary field, or even exist in the realm of fiction—women who are not afraid to break barriers, to speak their mind, and to invite dialogue and motivate other women to push the boundaries.

I’m also inspired by individuals who are selfless and compassionate, and who see the value in working with and helping others. I see these qualities in Stella Carakasi; she’s definitely a great example of a woman who is following her dreams and encouraging others to do the same, while cultivating a philosophy of sustainability and humanitarianism. That’s why I think the Stella Women profiles are awesome; they truly are an opportunity for women to work together and be recognized for the uniqueness that’s in all of us.

My Style, My Statement

Comfortable, elegant but also approachable. I love the delicacy and femininity of the Victorian era, the glamour and progress of the 1920s, and the pure fun and eclectism of the 1980s. I’m influenced by characters in films, by music, by artwork and simply by whatever my mood is at the moment. I love to accessorize, and Stella Carakasi’s pieces really accompany my diverse collection of jewelry. I also am nostalgic for the days when people routinely made an effort to look put together when out in public, and when I wear Stella Carakasi I always feel effortlessly stylish and modern, without being fleetingly trendy.

How I Feel When I Wear Stella

I am so delighted to have found what I consider a real treasure in the world of women’s apparel with Stella Carakasi’s gorgeous designs. I can’t stop buying them! It’s such fun to combine pieces together, yet also to complement other lagenlook lines that I own and love with them. I feel feminine in the soft colors and draping, never fussy. All the designs beautifully flatter the female form, without being constricting. The quality fabrics are breathable and comfortable, and suit so many occasions, whether that’s a day at the office, an afternoon shopping and or a special evening event. Stella Carakasi never fails to make me feel confident and distinct!
