{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Jump(suit) Into Spring

This week’s trend is one that’s great for this transitional season. It’s also versatile and works on various ages, body types, and styles. As the title told you, it’s all about jumpsuits.

Wear casual and cool, JLo did just a few days ago in a one-piece jean ensemble. Or opt for a jumpsuit for when you’re feeling fancy. During award-show season Gwen Stefani rocked a jumpsuit at the Grammys while Emma Stone dawned her pretty-pant look at the Golden Globes.  Other celebs recently spotted wearing this trend include Jada Pinkett Smith, Porta Di Rossi, and Kim Kardashian West.

{ Cinderella Chic } Fairytale Fashion For Real Life

One question I get a lot is what brands do I love/where I do shop. The answer is always the same yet different. It starts with “everywhere” and ends with a different list of favorites — depending on mood, moment and memory, of course. This post is not going to list out my favorite brands and shops (though I will add that to my idea notebook). No, instead it’s a roundup of pretty things from a line I tend to have very good luck with, LC Lauren Conrad for Kohl’s. The designs are really cute, fit my style and body, and then there’s also the fact that Kohl’s is almost never not running some sort of sale.

This time she’s taking a whimsical approach with inspiration from a certain well-known story, Cinderella. Here’s how to do fairytale fashion in real life.  Below are three looks along with my take on wear to where & why I love it.

{ Dare To Wear } Knot Styled

Hello to waking up an hour earlier and spring so close you can taste it. I love this time of year. It’s finally feeling acceptable to leave the house without a heavy winter coat, and so that’s why this month’s fashion find on repeat is a jean jacket. Last week I decided to Dare To Wear the jacket with a colorful maxi to make it feel more casual, cool and spring apporpriate. This week’s outfit post is continuing with the theme of transitional style that this season brings. Continue Reading

{ Trend Hungry Tuesday } Fur Rules Paris Fashion Week

Paris Fashion Week is winding down, but there’s one trend I keep noticing on so many of the celebs in attendance, fur. We’re opting for the faux variety, but before the budget-friendly shopping picks, let’s chat about who was spotted in a furry fashion at PFW.

Rihanna-Moschino

There was Rihanna in a yellow fur coat at the Moschino party. Her gal pal Katy Perry was also in a fur style at the event. Continue Reading

{ New Blog Column! } Five Things Wellness

A happy life clearly isn’t all about clothes, bags, and beauty products (though they help). It’s about treating yourself well. That includes what you eat, drink, think, and do to take care of yourself. Trend Hungry contributor Melissa Quin is our go-to gal for all things wellness. She’s always trying out new healthy lifestyle trends and can be found around Philadelphia drinking organic juice, joining a workout meetup, or blending fitness and fashion in an athleisure look (she told me what athleisure was, by the way!!). Inspired by Melissa’s blog, SkinnyAffair, once a month she’ll be bringing a dose of the wellness scene to TrendHungry.com. Now read on and stay well!   – JH

March is the beginning of S P R I N G! Philadelphia’s still a bit too chilly for regular outdoor workouts, but there are still a ton of ways to keep healthy and happy while warm weather is on the way. I’ve rounded up five wellness trends to transport you to warmer days ahead. Here’s the skinny… Continue Reading

{ Steal Of The Week } Prom Shoes Aren’t Just For High Schoolers

On Friday I chatted prom fashion on Fox29 (and Vivica Fox was guest hosting!!). Saturday came and I hosted Lord & Taylor’s prom fashion show (so much fun!!). Now it’s Sunday and I’m window shopping prom styles, shoes specifically. Is there a prom coming up for me? No, but that’s no reason not to want to dress up. Now, I know a ball gown won’t fit in with most people’s lifestyle (nor is it my style), but a great pair of party pumps never fail to add glamour to even jeans and a tee. Let’s skip the dresses and head straight to the fabulous footwear. Here are some special shoes fit for prom, a swanky soirée, or just chilling … and they’re all on sale.

LifeSTYLE Tip: Wear special pieces on the regular to make everyday special.

{ Dare To Wear } Colorful Is The New Black

Happy Birthday to me! I’m officially a year older today and I thought a bright outfit was in order to greet my 27th year of life. Spring is on the horizon (though there’s also a snow storm coming for Philadelphia tomorrow), so at least this look helps me think warm thoughts. I’m also thinking lots of positive thoughts too and being really reflective. Birthdays tend to do that to me, and holidays in general.

So I thought I’d share a little more about me in this post than just style tips. Here are seven random facts, since 27 seems like overkill.

1. I’m not naturally a morning person, like at all. I’ve been slowly training myself to become one but at least once a week get off track.

2. My hair has always been really dark. I came out of the womb with this hair, though I highlight it and color my gray roots (yup!). Continue Reading

{ Photo Diary } Inside Jewelry Designer Marlyn Schiff’s Showroom

I love jewelry and lately you may have noticed that Marlyn Schiff pieces have been making cameos here on the blog and my Instagram. It probably has to do the fact that everything is beautiful, budget friendly, and that I had the pleasure of meeting Marlyn and visiting her Ardmore showroom last month. I had featured a few blingy baubles from the celebrity-loved line in TV segments and blog posts so it was exciting to finally get to learn more about the brand and meet the creator.

First of all, it’s a wonderland of pretty things. There’s jewelry everywhere, of course, and the vibe is a little boho and free spirited yet glamorous and fashionable. There’s dainty cuffs and chain necklaces, blingy statement pieces, stunning stones, and most pieces are under $100.  I felt inspired to take it all in, try on a few pieces, and go a little snap happy. Here are some pictures from my visit. Hope you like! I’ll be sharing more pictures of places I go and things I do with the header { Photo Diary }. Continue Reading
