{Five Under $50} Summer Statement Necklaces


What exactly is considered a statement necklace? The first thing that came to my mind was something of the most utterly obvious…a necklace that makes a statement. After some thought and after looking at a bunch of celeb styles, I came to understand that a statement necklace is THE center of attention / main attraction / defining piece of your outfit.


Miranda Kerr wore this trend in gold, as seen on her InstagramEarlier this year, statement necklaces were seen all over the Oscar’s red carpet. And, the Duchess of Cambridge seems to love this style — remember this vintage Cartier Diamond necklace Kate borrowed from the queen? 

The number one rule of wearing a statement necklace  less is more. Statement necklaces are super bold, so make sure you don’t make the wrong statement by keeping your clothes simple. Too many patterns, colors, and bling can be overwhelming. I like to wear my statement necklaces with simple jewelry (tiny studded earrings, no bracelets, and a small ring) or no other jewelry at all.  Worn the right way, statement necklaces add a dash of personality to a casual everyday look or add sparkle to evening wear.

Here are five statement necklace styles perfect for summer — all under $50:


1. Metallic: Nasty Gal ‘Let’s Link Up’ Collar Necklace - $25 | 2. Bright & Bold: ASOS Premium Jeweled Bib Necklace$76 now $22 | 3. Flower Power: Betsey Johnson ‘Girlie Grunge’ Multi Flower Necklace – $68 now $47 | 4. Ocean Inspired: Anthropologie ‘Gahaya Links’ Bead Crochet Necklace$78 now $49 | 5. Simple Neutrals: Bauble Bar ‘Crystal Trellis’ Necklace – $46

Five Under $50: Kate Middleton Style Steals



Kate Middleton looks gorgeous in everything! Her natural British and sleek style has made her one of my style icons. Whether she’s attending a royal event, grocery shopping, or playing sports, Kate keeps an effortless and graceful look. She’s known for mixing spendy high end designer pieces with trendy street wear, so it’s easy for an average girl to achieve her royal style.

Here are five pieces under $50 for a royal inspired wardrobe:

1. Royal Bling

Kate wore a priceless diamond necklace borrowed from the queen.  It was crafted by Cartier in the ‘30s and is named The Nizam of Hyderabad Necklace.

JCPenny has a similar style faux diamond necklace for $12.

What Will Kate Middleton’s Baby Wear?

Like OMG, whoa! There’s a royal baby on the way. This world news is clearly monumental. So, in honor of a baby on board for William & Kate, I’ve decided to lend my services as a baby stylist. I’m certain Kate will be thrilled that I’m offering my budget-friendly services (your welcome, girlfriend!) so let’s start planning. If it’s a boy… ugh, I hope it’s not a boy. Boy baby clothes are so boring. It’s so limited. Therefore, it won’t be a boy.  The tabloids will be bored with a boy, so let’s just skip boy clothes.

If it’s a girl… okay, now we’re talking!

This baby will clearly be the envy of all the babies in the world. Suri Cruise will be sure to take to her blog, criticizing everything about this bundle of perfection. Continue reading…

Get Kate Middleton’s Olympic Wedges

It’s not news that Kate Middleton wears things more than once. Yes, she’s a total outfit repeater and she’s done it again. This time she’s been spotted wearing her blue Stuart Weiztman wedges to a number of Olympic events. Well, that shoe is totally sold out, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stag the style.


Tag: ALDO Drewel Espadrille Platform Wedge Shoes $51.09 @ Asos.

butter London – No More Waity Katie

Today at 4pm I’ll be on WBRE’s PA Live talking nail trends, and it’s way beyond colors.

So many nail polishes, so little time. One brand I currently loving is butter London. They’re “3 free” meaning they’re made without Dibutyl Phthalate (DBP), Formaldehyde and Toluene.

Lots of other brands are 3 free, but butter London happens to be my current favorite.

Tag: No More Waity Katie by butter London, $14.00 at Nordstrom.

My current color crush? No More Waity Katie. It’s named after Kate Middleton and the color is simply amazing. You like?

They’re $14.00 a bottle. It’s a little pricy, I know. But the way I think of it is if you buy it, your saving money by doing the mani and pedi yourself.

Tweet me @trendhungryblog!

There are so many other fab nail products out there. Here are some others I’ve blogged about! Enjoy!

Kate Middleton Deemed Outfit Repeater; Get Her Shoes!

I freakin’ LOVE Kate Middleton – not because she’s new royalty or nice, or sweet, but because she re-wears her wardrobe. Lots of her clothes may be designer (notably Sara Burton creations under the Alexander McQueen label), but she reworks her pieces and often it’s the next day!!

This makes me feel pretty pumped since I wore the same nude peep-toes three times in a row for tv appearances. At the time I was like “I hope they don’t notice,” but I was also like “these under thirty-dollar shoes go awesome with every outfit!”

Kate Middleton has officially made being an outfit repeater trendy and I am utterly grateful! I used to worry about having lots of Facebook pics in the same outfit (I know, I clearly have no life), but Kate goes to huge events in the same thing.  Look at her repeating her nude Louboutin’s.


Okay, let’s get on task. The Duchess of Cambridge has been repeating nude heels ( like me!!!) and ShoeDazzle has created a pair just like Kate’s.

Tag: Pavan, $39.95 at ShoeDazzle.

Do you love them? Do you NEED them? Do you re-wear your outfits too? Leave comments and click the links below to see repeat outfits.

Wired: White Jeans = Wardrobe Wonders

Now that it’s nice out (minus this last week of 24/7 rain) it’s time to get out of drab and into fab … clothes! A new wardrobe doesn’t really fit a skinny budget. Make the most of what ya got girl, and a pair of white jeans will instantly update your wardrobe.

Trend: White Jeans

Celeb Cravers: J.Lo, Victoria Beckham, Ashley Tisdale.

Style: Skinny, but if that ain’t your thang then opt for boot cut – very complementary! J.Lo rocks the wide leg. That style is for a truly confident fashionista.

Hungry: It makes me sad because the most fabulous pair ever is currently sold out! They’re by Almost Famous and were at Sears for only $12.00!! They fit like designer jeans, can you believe it?!?! I own a pair and need more since they’re so amazing. But I found you another pair that’s still pretty amazing.

Tag: Carson Double-Button Stretch Twill Skinny, Was $29.90 – $34.90, Now $23.92 – $27.92 (price varies on size) at Alloy.

And for boot cut Express is  where it’s at and they carry lots of different lengths. Hey, not all of us have long legs (I’m only 5’3).
