New Site Design & Link Love


Notice something different? TrendHungry.com is rocking a new look. It was time for a change. This site has sported an array of layouts and designs, but ya know what, sometimes less is more. So, last night I took it upon myself to learn a little about blog design and can I tell you that I am so happy I did because it was so freakin’ easy  to install this theme and I feel empowered. I also saved money (said with a smile).

I’m impulsive and decided this on a whim then executed immediately. Ya know what gets me engaged on a blog? Images, headlines, scrolling, and being able to actually see the content. Making the change was impulsive, but the concept of going back to a cleaner design had been on my mind for ages. So it’s done. Do you like it???


Anyway, let’s take the spotlight off the sleek new look of the site and onto some links you’ll be glad ya clicked.

{Steal of the Week} Graphic Tees

Graphic Tees on Celebs_Dakota Fanning_Rihanna

You’ve seen this trend on almost every celeb in Hollywood. I’m talking graphic tees here people. Everyone from Rihanna to Dakota Fanning is rocking this hip trend and there’s a reason why.

Super versatile, graphic tees work for a night out or just chilling. Always in season, graphic tees can be worn virtually any time of year, as long as styled appropriately, of course. Want to look casual, cool, and a little polished? Take a style cue from the ladies pictured above and add a boyfriend blazer.

Luckily, this trend isn’t crazy expensive to begin with. Karmaloop has a slew of chic tees at seriously discounted prices. Scroll and see my top picks. You will LOVE the savings!

Untitled & Co The Kate Boss Tee // $36 $18.95 – 47% off

Pair any of these with some distressed jeans and some pointed-toe pumps for a casual, yet sexy look. Or opt for one of my go-to looks and pair with a faux leather skirt and strappy pumps for a night out. Add some killer jewels and you’ve got a totally pulled-together look for way less than what the celebs are spending. Graphic tees are one of the easiest ways to look super chic for under $20, and who doesn’t love the sound of that?

{Trend Hungry Tuesday} Quilted Leather, Faux for Under $50

quilted faux leather

Quilted leather may seen like a nice alternative in the cooler months, but this trend is more about fashion than function.

Celebrities like Katy Perry, Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, and Kristen Stewart have all upgraded their leather looks by opting for the quilted kind.

Budget-friendly option you ask?

But, of course, darling! We wouldn’t dream of anything less. Our picks are faux, fabulous, and under $50! They also make great gifts, just sayin’.


Was that just not enough quilted leather for you to peruse? Here’s more and also under $50.

{Celeb Trend: Ear Cuffs} Where to Buy for Black Friday

celebrities wearing ear cuffs 2013

Looking for a new statement accessory? Try an ear cuff. It’s an earring that basically clips on to the outer part of your ear, like how a cuff bracelet would go on to your wrist. Many also go into your bottom lobe piercing (the traditional earring hole)  and come in pairs and singles. I started noticing this trend last year, and predict it will even bigger in 2014.

Rihanna just wore an ear cuff over the weekend at the American Music Awards, while Nicole Richie and Jessica Alba were spotted at the Met Ball earlier this year in ear cuffs. Jessica opted for a full pair with her updo. Other celeb sightings include Ke$ha, and Jennifer Lawrence.

Okay, now where should you shop for these? I mean, why not add them to your Black Friday shopping list? In fact, a lot of stores are starting sales early. Express just announced on Twitter that their Black Friday Sale starts early and they are offering half off every item in the store. This is online too and goes now til Nov.29th at noon, which is Black Friday. That makes these ear cuffs just under $14.

Forever 21 is running Pre-Black Friday Deals and select jewelry is buy one, get one FREE. Forever 21 also tweeted something that sounds a hint at a surprise Black Friday Deal. This pretty ear cuff is under $5 and sparkles enough for a holiday party.

Black Friday Shopping Tip: Follow your favorite brands on Twitter & Instagram. They often give sneak peeks and make important shopping announcements there first.

Friday Find: MNG Textured Jacket, aka Your New Spring Necessity

Screen Shot 2013-04-16 at 12.09.10 AM

What a fabulous Friday! This is the kickoff of the new column, Friday Find! Every other week I’ll be sharing my #1 pick from a week of shopping and scoping out the stores (I’m a window-shopping addict!). Each week the find will fit a skinny budget and will about be so good you’ll want to buy it right on the spot! I know this because I’ll only be featuring the items that I literally felt I COULD NOT LIVE WITHOUT, paired with a price tag fit for my frugal ways. Even though I blog about clothes, shoes, bags, and beauty, I don’t buy a ton. I’m very select with my purchases (momma works hard for her money honey!) and that’s why I decided to add Friday Find to the blog. I want to show you what I find worth purchasing and I’m starting off with a jacket I’ve managed to wear practically daily since buying.

Here’s the the jacket styled with ahigh-low dress and topped with an infinity scarf fit for an on-camera appearance and a busy day of meetings around NYC.

And over jeans and a tee shirt for a personal shopping appointment – comfy for scouring clothing racks but fashionable enough when styling a client. (sorry it’s blurry!)

4 TV Shows Worth Watching for Outfit Inspiration


Stop only looking to your favorite magazine for outfit ideas. Instead, turn to the tube. TV shows offer up a whole range of style. Here are five I watch just for that.

mad men style

1. Mad Men. This show is all about authenticity to the time period the show is set in, the early 1960’s. Estee Lauder did limited-edition Mad Men makeup two seasons in a row in line with the season premiere. Retro packaging with makeup to match. Are you a Joan or a Betty?

girls hbo fashion trends

 2. Girls. The show is a little too, wait, a lot too hipster, but some of the styles are pretty cool. Marnie’s sexy hostess uniform with the clip-on suspenders? Loved it! And Shoshanna’s weird hairdos do inspire me to pin them on my hair board on Pinterest.

the carrie diaries fashion

 3. The Carrie Diaries. The show hasn’t lived up to the hype, but the clothes are still cool. It’s Carrie Bradshaw in the early 80’s. It’s pretty fab for stylish workwear only the young professional can pull off.

Pretty Little Liars outfits

4. Pretty Little Liars. I’m 25 and love watching these high schoolers try to solve the whole “A” mystery while prancing around in trendy items  my high school would have never allowed. What high school allowed spaghetti straps??
