Trend Bite: Fashion Resolutions

Happy New Year! It’s the last Friday of 2012 and that means this is the last Trend Bite of 2012. It also marks one year of Trend Bites!! Thank you so much for your support! If you haven’t already, check out the Trend Hungry on YouTube  and subscribe so you don’t miss a bite!

My resolutions include cleaning out my makeup bag, selling the clothes I don’t wear (this has been on my to-do list forever!), wearing more emerald green, and mastering the cat eye. I know, these may sound a bit shallow, but these are just my style resolutions.

And if you must know, my hat is from The Wardrobe Boutique (can’t remember how much, but it was under $10). My top is from LuLu*s (I’m currently selling it on Threadflip), and my emerald green jacket is from Kohl’s for $72.00 $36.00 (c/o).

Thanks for watching! Take a trip down memory lane and watch the very first Trend Bite.

Comment below with your fashion resolutions!

XOXO!

Let’s Pretend Christmas Isn’t Over, Cool?

Merry Christmas! This post is a little late due to some technical difficulties, but it’s better late than never. Aside from crying for an hour (I don’t deal well with technical difficulties) I had a fabulous holiday! I got to visit my parents. We had a white Christmas. My mom made my favorite meal  - chicken parm, hers is seriously the best ever! And my family had a dance party in the kitchen with my boyfriend bringing the best moves, some Justin Timberlake-esque spins and fancy footwork. Continue Reading

Trend Bite: 7 Ways To Wear 1 Vegan Leather Skirt From LuLu*s

If you’re an avid reader of Trend Hungry, then you know I love LuLu*s. I so often look there when planning a TV segment, and it’s because they always carry cool pieces you’d typically find at a pricey boutique, but they’re at a good price point. I also really love their blog and I’m thrilled to be sharing the this week’s Trend Bite because I teamed up with LuLu*s to bring you one vegan leather skirt, seven ways and this video will be on LuLu.com’s blog as well!

This skirt is a favorite of mine. After featuring it on a recent TV segment , I got the idea of showing many ways to style this trendy staple piece.

I used items I already owned when styling the looks. A few fun pieces I threw it were a vintage hat, a rocker tee, a bulky sweater, vintage cocktail rings, and a flannel shirt to name a few. The heart sweater and the infinity scarf are items I own from LuLu*s.

Tag: Vegan Leather Skirt $42.00 (c/o) LuLu*s.

#MerryTrendy: Sale-Rack Items That Distracted Me From Shopping For Others

shopbop

Okay, it’s getting serious now. Christmas is only five days away. I thought I was so good since I got my tree early, but now I’m realizing I  had better get a move on shopping. So why am I having trouble focusing? Probably because I secretly want to treat myself and that’s been a major distraction. In my defense, I’m really easy to shop for, hence why I keep getting distracted window shopping for myself. Let me indulge for a minute, then I promise I’ll start thinking about tackling my holiday to-do list. Continue Reading

Right now (and after the holidays) is the perfect time to find what you’ve been eyeing all season on sale. I’ve already scored a few pieces myself when sites do a blanket discount (like 30% off everything including what’s already on sale). Oh man those are good. Continue Reading
