3 Diffusion Lines That Should Be On Your Radar

JC Penney

It’s a common myth that you have to break your wallet to look good or get designer style. It’s always the question of whether to opt for the quick, cheap outfit or spring for an invest piece, a quality piece you’ll have for a while. Have no fear – diffusion lines are here! Diffusion lines are great because they allow you to get the newest designer fashions minus the hefty price tag. Why do we love diffusion lines? Take a look at three we’ve been eyeing and see for yourself…

Designer: Janie Bryant- Costume Designer
Launch: Spring 2013
Price: Range from $29.50-$375
Why: Blast from the Past. Mod Vibe of the ’60s
Style: Late 60s mod fashion mixed with in your face prints and bold & bright colors.
Tip: Influenced by runway trends, get ready for a blast back to a time of geometric jewelry, graphic scarves, capris, and keyhole details. Match a solid colored piece along with a graphic one to stand out amongst the masses. Take a sneak peek into the collection here!

Trend Hungry at The Better Show @trendhungryblog #thgirls

Hi! Let’s play catchup, shall we?

This trend-a-holic is a tired trend-a-holic. I’ve been crazy busy lately with lots of exciting stuff. This morning I did two fashion segments with FOX29 in Philly (will post clips soon!). On Saturday I hosted The Body Shop’s Grand Opening at King of Prussia Mall (such a blast, see for yourself on Instagram!). And last week, I was on The Better Show where I showed how to style spring trends for the cool temps!

So without further adieu here’s how to wear top spring styles right now! :)

My mom made my favorite meal  – chicken parm, hers is seriously the best ever! And my family had a dance party in the kitchen with my boyfriend bringing the best moves, some Justin Timberlake-esque spins and fancy footwork. Continue reading…
