Ashley & Mary-Kate Olsen Create Cosmic Jewelry Under $40

If you’re a fan of Elizabeth and James jewelry get excited. Our favorite fashion twins and CFDA designers, Mary-Kate Olsen and Ashley Olsen have an affordable line worth adding to your Christmas list.

AMK x SM is a limited -edition jewelry collection for StyleMint. The out-of-this-world designs are inspired by constellations — hence the names Ursa Major, Hydra, Pyxis, and so on. The line really resembles the Olsens’ Elizabeth and James jewelry line. Both collections are simplistic and have a gorgeous cosmic theme. The main difference being the price — Elizabeth and James ranges from $95 – $395, whereas everything in the AMK x SM collection is either $29.99 or $39.99.

The accessories in their latest collection have a luxe feel, but all are extremely affordable, especially when you compare to one of their bags from The Row. Get ready to indulge and don’t wait, as past StyleMint jewelry collabs have sold out.

AMK x SM includes necklaces, earrings, rings, clutches, bangles, hand chains, and clutches. The collection is part of StyleMint’s limited-edition Studio Series, so you may not want to wait.

Another plus, the Olsens said they created “versatile pieces that transition easily from day to night”…can you say “Dare to Wear” worthy?

Style Tip: Because these accessories are minimalistic and dainty, it’s easy to stack and layer pieces. Pair jewelry with Flash Tattoos for a boho-chic look that not everyone will be sporting this holiday season.


{Shop It} Serpens Choker, $29.99 |  Pyxis Earrings, $29.99 | Hydra Bangle, $29.99 | Ursa Major Ring, $29.99 | Luna Pouch, $29.99

Take inventory of your wardrobe and make updates.  It’s a little more fun to get dressed for the day in spring & summer and these lines make high style easy and affordable.

To Tommy From Zooey

from zooey to tommy

New Girl star, Zooey Deschanel has teamed up with Tommy Hilfiger to create a capsule collection of vintage, all-American inspired dresses.  Pieces debuted this April in Macy’s locations and online at macys.com with prices ranging from $98 to $199, with accessories for less.  The two joined forces after meeting by chance at the home of a mutual friend.  They realized they both shared a love for vintage fashion, music and film, which sparked the idea for the collection.  The line also includes some affordable accessories; including this adorable Oversized Anchor Necklace that I just ordered. Looking at some of the items makes me feel like a 60’s summer day, full of shift dresses, nautical stripes and polka dots.  However, I will substitute the beehive hair for a heavy bang.

 

Peter Som for Kohl’s DesigNation

The second designer collaboration on my list goes to Peter Som.  Drawing on inspiration from the beautiful island of St. Barth’s, this collection is full of flirty, feminine and colorful pieces that scream ‘VACATION’.  Not to be confused with tacky vacation; no hula shirts here! There are, however, plenty of stylish dresses, shorts, tanks and skirts that can easily be mixed and matched.  If that’s not enough, did I mention that every item in the collection is priced under $100?  Spring fashion doesn’t get much easier than this.  I have my eyes on the Palm Leaf Bomber Jacket.

GX By Gwen Stefani for ShoeDazzle

  shoedazzle

 As if this platinum power mom doesn’t have enough going on already, here she comes with an affordable accessories brand, created exclusively for ShoeDazzle.  I’m not complaining as both the bags and shoes in this line aren’t a far cry from her more popular (and more expensive) L.A.M.B line.  With a color palette of red, white, cobalt, and black you can see that GX is reflective of Gwen’s signature edgy and chic style.  Platforms, wedge sandals, and single sole heels are all part of this collection with prices from $25 to $89.

 

One To Watch: Alexander Wang x H&M

Alexander Wang has been my favorite designer for years now, so I can’t really begin to convey the excitement when I heard of this announcement. His Rocco Bag changed my life and sadly, I’m not kidding. I look forward to his sample sale every year.  In the past, H&M has teamed up with amazing high-end designers including Lanvin, Marni, Victor & Rolf and Givenchy to name a few.  Wang will be the first American fashion designer to collaborate with H&M; creating men’s and women’s clothing and accessories for the famous retailer.  Pricing and designs have not yet been released, as the collection won’t hit stores until November 4th.  Sorry ladies! I would guess that if it’s like any of the aforementioned collaborations, there will be plenty of pieces for every pocket size.  After all, it is H&M.

We’ve all fallen victim to compromising style for affordability and vice versa.  This list is proof that those days are over.  You can have great style at affordable prices.  Is there a new brand or store that you’d like to tell us about? Please do!  We’d love to hear about it in the comment section below.

Modeling Peter Som for Kohl’s & Launching a New Biz!!

While in LA last week I got to meet up with my blogging bud Shauna Miller of Penny Chic. If you don’t already know about Penny Chic, then it’s a good thing you’re reading this. Like Trend Hungry, PC is all about looking good on a budget and shows ya how. Shauna styles bloggers and friends in affordable fashions and I got to be model for the day.

And guess what I got to pose in? A new diffusion line that I’m pretty pumped for, Peter Som for Kohl’s, which is currently on presale. The full line hits stores in just three days, but you can already shop a ton of the styles now, including the pineapple tank for $38.

PETER-SOM-FOR-KOHLS-606x402

Like my bling? It’s my own collection! As Shauna announced, I’m now selling vintage jewelry. I’ve always been a fan of vintage and would beg my grandpa to let me go in his basement (that’s where all the old jewelry boxes were stored). As a kid I’d sneak down to play dress up. My collection of vintage costume jewelry and accessories has really grown thanks to estate sales, sweet little old ladies at consignment shops, family members, and flea markets,  so I’m now selling it under that name Bling Babe! Oh my gosh, I can’t believe I just let the cat out of the bag! I’ll be selling at boutiques (starting with the Philadelphia area) and will eventually bring the bling online.

Bling Babe is super new so please follow online and give some love. Lots of updates on this will be coming soon. For now follow on Twitter & Instagram and shop the styles at Nich Boutique in Collegeville!!

Big thanks to Shauna for having me and styling, to her mom for the beautiful photos, and to my friend Kristen for being my sidekick for the day and snapping awesome behind-the-scenes shots. I’ll be posting lots of LA pics soon, promise!!

Head over to Penny Chic for outfit details and check out Shauna’s new book available for preorder!!

Lookbook: PETER PILOTTO for Target

It’s time for another Target diffusion line. Will people go nuts, wait outside the store, then buy 2 of everything?? You be the judge, but we’re guessing you’ll find it quite swoon-worthy! Peter Pilotto for Target may be heavy on prints, but it’s high on style and low on your budget. The line price goes from $14.99 to $79.99 for apparel and swimwear and $16.99 to $39.99 for accessories. Expect to see nearly 70 items, consisting of women’s apparel, accessories and swimwear out on Feb. 9, at most Target stores and Target.com.

And for the international fashionistas, there will also be a curated selection sold on NET-A-PORTER.COM. Target has thought of everything, though I think I’ll pay in cash after their big breach in security.

Looks like it’s time to start a new Pinterest board for spring!

JLove Style, Fragrance & BIG Giveaway!

I absolutely love fall. It’s my favorite season and Philadelphia makes for a beautiful autumn backdrop. I also happen to love fall for the fashion – faux fur & cozy cable knits  keep you warm and comfortably chic.

Jennifer Lopez J.Love giveaway 10295159664_8aa6d9d107_b 10295389063_cd53df1c63_b 10295151874_49e2253d2d_b

For this look I  channeled my inner JLo, as her new fragrance JLove acted as inspiration for this outfit. I’m such a fan of her work and products (check out this Trend Hungry video blog featuring her previous perfume Glowing ) and like Jennifer Lopez, I’m all about embracing what you love. She made a career out of going after her loves (so inspirational!) and she’s on to her 20th fragrance. She’s clearly a busy lady.

And it just so happens that she and I have something in common besides chasing our dreams and the same first initial, we both love fur, animal print, and accessories. Her love of fashion and  iconic status are embodied in this raspberry, citrusy sweet fragrance.

To celebrate JLo’s new scent she’s hosting a MAJOR GIVEAWAY, and I mean MAJOR!! Watch this video for all the details and don’t wait, because this is one seriously amazing prize!! #JLoveFragrance

Did I mention my cable-knit sweater is from the Jennifer Lopez line? I’ve been living in it since it came into my possession – loving it over leggings.

Fall in love with the new scent for yourself. JLove by Jennifer Lopez is now available at Kohl’s.

{Watch It} Kohl’s Google+ Hangout with Elle Magazine!!

Just a few days ago Trend Hungry joined in on Kohl’s Google+Hangout and talked trends from Catherine Malandrino’s new budget-friendly line with Elle Magazine’s Fashion News Director Anne Slowey as well as two budget-blogging babes, Dianna of The Budget Babe & Shannon of The Simple Moms.

It was so fun to partner with Kohl’s on this and to give shoppers a special look at the line’s trends & answer fan questions.

You will LOVE this line & I’m not just saying it. The clothes fit so comfortably and this whole collection really captures Parisian style. Plus there’s a ton of black & white pieces in the collection, which is a HUGE HUGE trend.

Here are the links to the black & white sweater I wore & the knitted skirt perfect for traveling that I mentioned & held up.

Fashion News: Peter Som Partners with Kohl’s DesigNation

This announcement was timed just right, with NYFW in full swing. Big-deal designer and a favorite among celebrities, Peter Som is partnering with Kohl’s DesigNation to bring to us budget babes his designs affordably. Peter Som for DesigNation will be a limited-edition collection inspired by St. Barths and is set to debut Spring 2014 at Kohl’s and Kohls.com.

peter-som-kohls

“The island of St. Barths is a favorite vacation spot of mine. Full of luxury and serenity, with chic cottages lining the harbor and colorful designer boutiques, the island has a French charm that floats throughout the city,” said Som. “I am thrilled to partner with Kohl’s to bring this DesigNation collection to life and provide women with beautiful clothing that emulates the luxe lifestyle of St. Barths at a great value.”

Unlike other diffusion lines, Kohl’s DesigNation features a different designer and collections and take inspiration from different destinations.

Do you think any of Som’s famous fans will don his DesigNation collection? Stars that have worn Som style are heavy fashion hitters including: Beyonce, Scarlett Johansson, Jessica Alba, Rachel McAdams, Allison Williams, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Ginnifer Goodwin

Diffusion Lines seem to be a continuing trend. It was just recently that Trend Hungry posted looks from 3.1 Phillip Lim for Target, and we’re counting down the days until Catherine Malandrino for Kohl’s DesigNation launches (Sept. 27!!).
