If you didn’t catch the Grammys last night, you missed a night full of stellar performances, surprise wins, and of course, jaw-dropping fashion! It’s official – skin is definitely in…I mean did you see J.Lo’s dress?!?! From midriffs to cut-out dresses and plunging necklines, the stars were definitely showing off their beach-ready bodies. But our favorite look by far was the sheer. It’s practical, sexy, and gives coverage with a little bit of tease. Just make sure you don’t go sheer from head to toe – that’s a major NO NO.
What celebs stole the show in sheer? Ashanti, Kelly Rowland, Alicia Keys and of course, Rihanna – this girl can do no wrong!
Rihanna rocked the red carpet in her long, sheer dress matched with a matte red lip. The cut and length of the dress covers all the right areas while still encompassing some playfulness and sex appeal.
Steal the look in time for Valentine’s Day! Opt for a cocktail dress with sheer details.
This week was just as busy as the week before. I was back in NYC for more Fashion Week fun and hit up a few gifting suites - one hosted by my friend/mentor Jene’ Luciani called Loungerie 2012! She’s the go-to girl for all things bra, so her gifting suite was definitely for the girly girl that loves some pampering! There were free manicures, makeup touchups, sips & snacks, and celebs like VH1 Mob Wives’ Ramona Rizzo, and Couples Therapy star Alex McCord, and Angela Simmons were in attendance. And, of course, there were great gifts – my favorite is my new limited edition iphone case c/o Speck called FabShell – LOVE IT!!
From there, I headed to a couple more events my partner-in-fashionable-crime Kristen (she filmed/edited the video!). We stopped by The Daily’s event and got some blogger insight thanks to Socialyte’s Influence 101 sessions. Then it was off to the Socialyte Gala, charity event for our furry friends. Lots of big bloggers were in attendance as was the singer Neon Hitch (OMG!), while Delta Rae and Theophilus London performed. I finally got to meet some of my favorite bloggers and came face to face with Jacob, the genius behind the site I use to sell my stuff, Threadflip. It’s a great way to sell and shop gently-used items (often designer) and right now there’s a flash sale with proceeds going charity, so buy buy buy and help save our furry friends!! Hurry! It ends tomorrow at midnight PST!
Ahh, September is busy for a fashionista. It’s New York Fashion Week. The VMA‘s are tonight (gotta see those crazy fashions). Tonight is also Fashion’s Night Out – I’ll be at the KOP Mall from 6pm-9pm, come visit! And next week is a big fashion week for Philly with The Philadelphia Collection, and the main attraction will be next Thursday at South Moon Under in Center City! Trend Hungry (Me!) will be there to offer expert styling tips, and the fun doesn’t stop there. All the fashionista favorites will be at this event: cupcakes, cocktails, mini makeovers and manicures, fun freebies, and of course, some great sales!
Needless to say, I’m pretty excited for the South Moon Under event! I hope you are too! It’s a great way to celebrate fashion with your gal pals and you get a taste of fashion week without all the craziness of NYC. Festivities start at 6pm, perfect for happy hour! So, will I see you there? Here’s the Facebook invite. Add yourself to the list and share it with all your fashionable friends! They’ll be forever grateful that you kept them in the stylish loop!
Tune is every Tuesday to PA LIVE on WBRE for Trend Hungry Tuesday. I’ll be on dishing the 411 on fashion and beauty trends. Don’t worry, I like to stick to a skinny budget and give away my favorite new things.
This week it’s all about being fashion forward. It’s New York Fashion Week. This is where top designers showcase their future collections, so right now the designs are for Spring 2012. At shows there are celeb sightings (Jersey Shore, Jerseylicious, Real Houswives, Kardashians!!!!!) and lots of FREE STUFF.
They’re called “swag bags” and I want to share some goodies with you – the newest hair products, wrinkle cream, fake nails, a new drink, and even a shirt designed by Avril Lavigne.
Fall fashion is now and I’m so hungry for it! The nail polishes, the boots, the sweaters and so much more. There’s a lot going on. Can I fill ya in?
