The Cat/Animal Print Trend for Less

Jul 31, 2013

Everywhere I look lately I am seeing cats! And no I'm not going crazy. It's apparently become pretty big among the women of Hollywood. Whether it's a kitschy cat tee or leopard print jeans...this trend has the potential to be pretty high end looking! I mean, c'mon! Look at the Cartier ads! Can you get more high end than that?

Here are some frugal finds to help you along with this trend:

ON THE TREND: Laser Cut-Out Leather

Jul 26, 2013

Hey guys! Hope you're all having a great week!

Anyone notice the laser cutout trend floating around? This was a trend that was predicted for Spring 2013 and has definitely hit off with celebrities. But I can personally see it going all the way into Fall. Why? Because leather is a huge staple for almost every Fall season. Guess we will see!

But no worries! It's still on trend NOW for the Summer. So here are some of my favorite laser cut items! I mixed super expensive items with frugal finds. You guys seem to like when I do that :)

HOW I STYLE: Ombré Necklaces!

Jul 23, 2013

Thanks to Polyvore, today's post is inspired by their latest contest, 'How Do You Style Ombré Necklaces?'.

The ombré trend is pretty prominent in clothing stores here in the U.S. I personally have seen it most in cut-off shorts and skirts. But with Fall around the corner, those items don't seem like they'll be so popular next season. Therefore, we are focusing on ombré necklaces. Why? Because they work for all seasons!

Fall 2013 High Shine Trend

Jul 18, 2013

The High Shine Trend is in the fashion forecast for this Fall. Especially clothing and accessories with sequin embellishments. Many designers have sequins featured in their 2013 Fall/Winter collections. They include Dolce and Gabbana, Chanel, Marc Jacobs and Givenchy. You can view some of my favorite pieces of theirs on my Pinterest!

How do I wear this trend?
To look chic and not tacky, use this trend on ONE base item in your outfit. Like a skirt, top, pants, or dress. Remember! Too many sequins items in an outfit can ruin your look.  If you want to add other sequined items to your outfit, do this with your accessories. This will help bring out your main sequined piece. Just remember that less is more when it comes to this trend!

To get you started on your Fall wardrobe, here are some great pieces featuring this trend for under $50:

High Shine & Under $50
1) SKIRT: Mango - $29.99 // 2) CLUTCH: Kohls- $38.50 
3) BUTTON UP : Mango- $25 // 4) SMALL BANGLE: Piperlime- $22 
5) LARGE BANGLE: Piperlime- $30 // 6) T-SHIRT: Zara- $15
