{ Photo Diary } Almay’s #SimplyAmerican Tour Bus Visits Philly

This Independence Day I hopped on the Almay #SimplyAmerican tour bus for some pampering on the Parkway. I love my city. Philadelphia’s Benjamin Franklin Parkway turned into one of the biggest Fourth of July celebrations in the country called Wawa Welcome America. The all-day extravaganza, complete with music and food, was a pretty fun way to spend the holiday despite the weather being less than stellar. Thanks to Almay I was able to take refuge from the rain and get a little makeover. Continue Reading

{ Well-Dressed Man } Custom Menswear Shop Indochino To Open Philadelphia Showroom

Hey Philly peeps, custom menswear just got easy. Indochino is coming back to Philadelphia. The worldwide leader in custom-men’s apparel did a pop-up shop back in the spring of 2014 that was a huge success so they’re setting up shop at 1606 Chestnut Street in Center City. Opening Wednesday, Jan. 14th, the new showroom will be an extension of the brand’s web-based store and will offer men a face-to-face shopping experience where they’ll be assisted with measurements and customization options — including a wide range of fabrics on display, more than 30 suit customizations, and over 20 shirt customizations, including lapel width, buttons, pockets, monogramming, lining and more.


“Our pop-up experience in Philly in May 2013 was an unprecedented success and the city has since grown into one of our biggest markets,” explained Kyle Vucko, Indochino’s co-founder and CEO. “We knew it would be one of the first cities we opened a showroom in and can’t wait to be on the ground once again helping the men of Philadelphia look sharp and feel awesome.”

Last time Indochino came to town I got to cohost their opening and I’m thrilled to be teaming up with them again. Since then my man has become a fan and wears his Indochino often. A custom shirt fits drastically better and the price is comparable and totally worth it. Once he goes custom he won’t want to go back. Keep it in mind for Valentine’s Day.


The brand saves each client’s sizes, making the whole experience easy. Here’s some more info.

{ How It Works }

  • Men make an appointment at
  • Working with a Style Guide client is professionally measured before building their one-of-a-kind suit or shirt
  • Garment is crafted and delivered to the store or customers’ homes in approximately four weeks
  • Customers are invited back for a second fitting to make sure their suit or shirt fits the way it should
  • Once fit perfection has been achieved, customers may take home their finished clothing to wear with confidence — and they’ll LOVE how they look in it!

{Insta-Recap + Blog Reflection} #TrendHungryTurns4

Big thanks to all you fabulous people reading this and special thanks to those of you that came out to celebrate #TrendHungryTurns4 at Smak Parlour! I still can’t believe it’s been 4 years! One thing is certain. Time will keep going, so it’s up to YOU what you do with it. This blog birthday has given me a chance to reflect on all that’s happened since launching. When I started on my Trend-Hungry way, I had no idea how much it would impact my life. It’s been a tool to brand myself. It’s given me the opportunity to show real girls and women that style is attainable and fun, not something to stress about. Thanks to this blog I’ve basically been able to make my own dream job. Don’t get me wrong, it’s so not perfect and looks far less glam without a Valencia filter on it, but it’s mine, I love it, and it’s always creative, different, and keeps me on my toes. I get to write articles for various outlets, team up with brands, host events, talk trends on TV and radio, style people, and help people feel good about themselves (it’s crazy how clothes can make such a difference with self image).

I’m so grateful for all the love and support. My journey and the journey of so many other inspiring bloggers and #girlbosses out there is what inspires me to keep going everyday. When I started this blog I was fresh out of college and the economy sucked (still does).  This blog gave me an outlet, a tool, hope, something to put my energy towards. I had no idea it would open so many doors. I’m so grateful and will start paying it forward by adding more interviews with Trendsetters that inspire. Stay tuned for new things to come!
