Hi Everyone!

My name is Marcela and welcome to Sophisticated Effect!


I started this blog as a way to explore my creative side. Often times I find myself getting caught up in the hustle and bustle of work and responsibilities that I forget to explore activities that I enjoy. I follow a list of fashion and lifestyle bloggers that document their outfits and travels and constantly daydreamed about how I wish I could do that as a hobby. So, here I am!

My style is casual, classy, and with a touch of sophistication (see what I did there haha). I love shopping for affordable finds that can be dressed up for work or dressed down for a casual day out. But I will say that I also believe in splurging for those timeless pieces I get to wear over and over again.

I currently live in Los Angeles but enjoy traveling all around. I am a big lover of Audrey Hepburn, Film Noir cinema, and anything spicy mango flavored.

Hope you enjoy my fashion and lifestyle posts! Feel free to reach out and share your thoughts, they are much appreciated.

Thank you very much for visiting! 🙂

XOXO, Marcela
