Why We're Obsessed With Sincerely Jules
The Inspiration Behind Creating Her Blog
Julie Sarinana is a 30-year-old fashion blogger born in Mexico and raised in Los Angeles, California, where she is still based. She also works as a freelance fashion stylist and has always had a passion for dressing nicely. She previously attended Los Angeles’s Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising where she earned a degree in Visual Communications. Her work as a blogger has already earned her seven figures, significantly more than most other bloggers.
In 2009 Sarinana launched the website Sincerely Jules. The purpose of the site was to allow her to easily express her ideas and thoughts on her personal style and what inspires it. Through the site she shares with her fans stories of her travels and the style she brings to life on a daily basis. Her motto is “Dream, Believe, Achieve.” The hope is that those who read her site will make that their motto in life as well. She believes in this motto so much that she has designed t-shirts for it, as well as for other inspirational quotes.
Julie Sarinana Collaborates With Reebok
At the beginning of 2016 Julie joined forces with Reebok to release a unique line of shoes. Reebok chose to work with Sincerely Jules in order to market their products to a younger demographic. She was called the perfect partner and collaborator because Reebok was sure she could help them encourage young women to seek inspiration everywhere they go. The line of shoes was named Reebok Classic X Face Stockholm and includes styles such as LX 8500, Princess, CL Nylon and Instapump. Aside from the classic designs Reebok is famous for this line of shoes also features colorblock styles. The style of this collection is unofficially classified as feminine and powerful.
Sarinana personally curates the images used on her website to allow her to inspire and connect with everyone reading it. She has been praised by giants in the fashion industry, such as Billabong, who called her a naturally beautiful inspiration that they enjoy being around. For close to five years she has been working with Rewardstyle through her journey from becoming a personal style blogger to becoming an inspiration to women everywhere.
Sincerely Jules has an online shop where luxury and casual clothes can be purchased. From shorts to t-shirts to dresses and shoes, Sincerely Jules can outfit even the trendiest women from head to toe.
With a passion for clothing and accessories, Julie shared with StyleCaster that she has an impulse for shoes and bags, which are mainly what you would find in her closet if you looked at any given time. She describes her personal style as “perfectly imperfect,” which includes one part of her outfit being slightly out of place. She compared her personal style to a combination of Parisian fashion and the typical California girl look though she shies away from patent-leather clothes (but not shoes.) She lists her favorite brands as Chloe, Isabel Marant and Levis.

Aside from her own blog, Julie also contributes to Glamour Magazine’s blog where she imparts her fashion advice to readers.
The Creation Of Julie Sarinanas Blog
2012 brought the creation of Shop Sincerely by Julie Sarinana. Her goal in its creation was to take her signature style and make it easy for her friends and followers to copy it. When she first launched Shop Sincerely it only consisted of shirts but has now expanded to include cut and sew pieces that are on the cutting edge of today’s fashion. The same year, Julie also participated in an advertising campaign for American Eagle Outfitters, where she modeled their super skinny jeans.
In 2015 Julie participated in a campaign called AerieReal after having previously worked with the brand in 2012. She got involved in the campaign because it promoted portraying models naturally as opposed to digitally altering photos of them. She stated that women need to be able to embrace who they are, including any physical imperfections they might have.
Proving that she is in touch with her fans, during the summer of 2016 Julie celebrated the opening of a Sincerely Jules department at a Nordstrom department store at the O.C. South Coast Plaza in California. She mingled with the fans that showed up at the store to get a glimpse at her line of merchandise. Not only did Julie stop to pose with various customers for photo opportunities she also spent her time there advising customers on putting together an outfit that reflects her style. Customers could then snap selfies in their chosen clothes upload them to Instagram and see their photos on the movie screen set up in the store. Customers also had the option of having their photos printed out on the spot, allowing them to take the photos home. Prior to the clothing line’s debut at Nordstrom it was only available for purchase online.
Julie’s future career plans include opening a clothing boutique and also continuing to grow her fashion blog. She will likely continue to inspire young women through her blog and clothing line as well as her other future endeavors. She also serves as an inspiration to others in the fashion industry and many of them have expressed interest in taking her style preferences and incorporating them into their own personal wardrobe preferences. Other fashion designers often look to Julie for her sound advice on this cutthroat industry.
