Pretty Little Liars: Emily’s Shoes

First of all, how amazing was the mid-season finale last night?!? I can’t believe all that happened, but I don’t want to ruin it for those who haven’t seen it yet, but GO SEE IT!! IF you did see it, then you probably remember Emily’s shoes when she got out of the car to go into the barn. Nude pumps with a bow on top of the heel – so cute and you can so wear them too!

Here’s a similar pair…

VMA Fashion… Not Impressed

I love the Video Music Awards. It’s one of my favorite awards shows because it’s just cool. But this year there was no host (WHAT!?!!). I was displeased with MTV’s choice to cut corners and I was even more disappointed with the outfits.

GaGa arrived sans the egg and instead as a man, pretending to be her own love interest. I wasn’t buying it.

The new chick on The Jersey Shore is officially the worst dressed of the cast. Quite an accomplishment considering Abercrombie pays the Situation not to wear their brand (bad publicity).

Katy Perry wore a cube on her head. I didn’t get it, but it looks like she just took it right off of the Dior catwalk. Not that original…

The Biebs hair looked awful ( l miss the old do), but he claimed he was wearing a Kanye costume, which actually makes me like this look more. the red pants are on trend. Salena looked really good. Work it girl!

And that’ the TrendHungry recap. Not wowed, not trying to copy these looks for cheap, well, maybe Salena’s.


Get Camera-Ready Makeup By a Pro

People on tv always look so pretty. Often many are natural beauties, but a good makeup artist helps too. Want to be pampered by a pro? I’ve got a girl that can help and she’s running a special! Her name is Tiffany Brower. She does makeup for NBC10’s The 10! Show, has worked under celebrity makeup artist Carie Brescia and also is a brand ambassador for Carie Brescia Cosmetics.

Brower is very up-and-coming and YOU can get pampered in her chair at Salon Ziza in Ardmore, a swanky salon that just won best of Main Line for hair extensions. At the salon she’ll make you look camera ready, girl’s-night-out ready, or whatever kind of ready makeup look you’re craving. Salon Ziza is one of my new-found favorites for some must-needed beauty pampering.

For YOU, you trend-hungry fashionista, she’ll do her thing for only $50.00. I know, that’s not a fee you want to pay for everyday, but for her stellar skills it’s a steal and perfect for a bridal party, a fun night out with your gal pals, or a hot date.

Mention Trend Hungry to snag the deal and watch our girl in action today at 11 am on The 10! Show.

(pics coming will be up as soon as I find my camera cord!)

Olivia Palermo’s Leopard Oxfords For Cheap!

Ashley, the owner of Apricot Lane Ardmore, has been on the hunt for leopard oxfords, circa 2011 on fashioista Olivia Palermo. Shopbop had them, but clearly they’re sold out.

When Ashley showed me the shoes is People Style Watch, I had to have them and thought of Forever 21 first. My instincts were right and here they are.

Tag: Leopard Print Heels, $26.80 at Forever 21.

If you want this trend but have something against Forever 21 (awful return policy) Fergie makes a cute pair, but not quite as close to Palermo’s pair, for about $140.


Engagement Photo-Ready Wrap Dress

One of the lovely producers from NBC Philadelphia’s The 10! Show is gearing up for engagement photos – exciting/stressful. What to wear? She wants to look classy, cover her upper arms (something so many of us look to cover), and needs it ASAP.

My advice: For this forever photograph don’t go trendy. Go with a classic style so when you look back you don’t look too dated. My suggestion is a wrap dress. They work for so many body types, hide camouflage problem areas, and highlight your assets – perfect for photos.

Here are my picks for wrap dresses on a skinny budget. May all the brides-to-be look fabulous in all your photos!!

Target had fabulous finds, but out of stock, so maybe some stores have a few.

Found this beauty at Old Navy, but it’s available only online (hate that!).

Tag: Women’s Tie-Front Wrap Dress, $29.50 at Old Navy (online only).

Tag: Annie Faux-Wrap Dress, $98.00 at Banana Republic.

This dress got some great reviews and actually fits better on real women. It doesn’t really hug the model the way it should. The sleeves are long, but I like how they show them rolled in the picture.

Here’s another option from Banana Republic. This color is on sale, but it there are neutral colors too, just at the regular price of $98.00.

Tag: Gemma Wrap Dress, Was $98.00, Sale $44.98 at Banana Republic.

This next dress isn’t technically a wrap dress, but it has a similar style and works for big busts.

Tag: Jones Wear Elbow Sleeve Dress w/Ruched Waist, Was $90.00, Sale $69.99 at JCPenney. Found another dress from JCP for the same price. Click here to view.

This next find is from Sears and I know, Sears doesn’t have the best rep for style. But trust me, they’re really getting their act together. Check it out.

Tag: Next Women’s Dress Jersey Wrap Black, $59.00 at Sears.

And if you’re looking to go a little more expensive Ann Taylor has some gorgeous wrap dresses.

Starving for Leopard Jeans

There are a lot of denim trends at the moment. White, brights, jeggings, wide-leg jeans, and now animal print … leopard to be precise.

I am dying for a pair. I just need them right now and can’t wait. This craving needs to be fed, but on a skinny budget (of course!).

Hope you like what’s on the menu! I think there’s a pair for everyone that wants this trend, including me.

I Spy Sexy Spots

Tag: Tripp NYC Leopard Jean, $66.00 at Urban Outfitters.

Roll Your Pants Up

Girl, it’s all about rolling your trousers! The blogger from Men Repeller sports the look with jeans, and she’s quite fashionable, so I’m taking her cue.

Fab Fashion Blogger of Man Repeller Creating a Trend

If you want the look with jeans take an old pair of boot cuts and roll. Skinny jeans will work if they’re real skinny jeans, not jeggings that are skintight an leave a mark on your legs (my standard pant).

Now if you want the trouser look, which is what I’m really hungry for, Forever 21 has the look for cheap, as usual!

Foldover Waist Trousers, $27.80 at Forever 21.
