{ Interview } Tips On Fashion, Blogging & Dream Chasing

It’s getting to that point where people stop saying Happy New Year, but we’re not quite there so let me say it once more, Happy New Year! You may notice things look a little different around here. Sometimes I get the itch for change and nothing can stop me. When I was a kid I’d rearrange the furniture in my bedroom and pretty much every other room in the house. My parents would come home or wake up and be like, ” when did you do this?” I do this at my place now, remix my wardrobe and how I do my makeup, and so the blog sometimes also needs an impromptu upgrade. It wasn’t really impromptu. It was planned but happened sooner than scheduled.

Speaking of sooner than planned, the creation of this blog happened in a similar fashion. SkinnyAffair.com recently asked me about how the blog came about, my tips to aspiring bloggers, what’s in my bag and more. It was a lot of fun answering the interviewer’s questions as SA is the blog of Melissa Funtanilla, who recently celebrated her first year blogging at Trend Hungry!

I did the interview a little while ago so it was cool to go back and read it. It’s reminded me of two things that have been important in my journey and I’d like to be mindful of this year.

 { Trend Hungry Tuesday } Mixing Prints

Have fun with fashion. This trend requires it. It’s mixing prints together. So plaid and polka dots is a now a fashion DO as are stripes and floral designs. This is one trend you have to try to for yourself and a few celebs are showing us how it’s done.

Gwen Stefani always looks so put together but always with a cool, rocker edge. This past weekend she rocked striped sunnies with a dotted top and plaid pants. It might would like a lot going on, but it totally worked,

Beyoncé is another who’s been into pairing prints lately and posted a few different outfit pictures on Instagram.

Famous fashionistas that have been known to mix prints are Kourtney Kardashian and Jessica Alba.

{ Tips & Tricks To Pairing Patterns }

1. For easy pairing, try prints that are in the same color family.

2. Style a loud print with one that’s more subtle to balance the look. The subtle will act as a neutral.

3. Guess and test. It’s the only real way to find out what YOU like.

4. Go light on accessories. Let the prints do the talking.

As for snagging this trend on a budget, you can go pretty much anywhere, even your own closet. I found some stellar styles for a steal and Forever 21. They only look luxe.

There’s a Polka dot skirt for under $25,and striped top for under $10 and many more stylish finds. Scroll through the showroom and mix and match to your style preference.

Do you like to pair patterns together? Do tell in the comments below.

{ 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.

Indochino-Philadelphia

“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.

{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Two Easy Outfits for New Year’s Eve

In less than 48 hours the ball drops and a new year begins. So the real question is, what will you be wearing to ring in 2015? I’ll make it easy for ya with these two quick outfit ideas.

{ Opt for embellishments. }

Why? Styles with sequins or beadwork, or both add the those special touches so require little accessorizing. Let the dress be the statement. Celebs opt for embellished looks all the time and know not to overwhelm the look with too much jewelry, including Taylor Swift and Beyoncé.

{ Dress up your jeans. }

It’s easy, comfy, and warm — three big selling points. Keep it cool and classy by taking a cue from Kim Kardashian West and opt for all-black everything, black jeans with a black shirt and top with a blazer or leather jacket. Keep the look from feeling too casual and by adding a red lip and chandelier earrings. Hair, makeup, and accessories play a major part in glamming up your laid-back look.

{Dare To Wear} One Sweater, Three Ways

The title speaks the truth. Over the last few weeks this TOMs For Target Sweater (now sold out online, check your local Target) has been put to good use. It’s been belted, layered, and even tied around my shoulders to act as an impromptu shawl. All three of these looks are stylish enough to wear to a holiday happening and this knit is so cozy that it adds a little relaxation to any look.
