Get Jenna Jordan’s Runway Inspired Look

As we find ourselves eyeing bright hues and floral prints for our spring wardrobe, let’s not exclude another popular trend from the Spring/Summer 2019 runway shows in September of last year. Taking on subtle accents to wilder tones, animal print is the no-matter-what-season design that you can’t go wrong with. Style it sexy or keep it low-key like Jenna Jordan of Trendy Not Spendy. Our runway dreams feel complete with winter and spring collections from Tom Ford, Rochas, and Givenchy. From handbags to vests, these designers make animal print an effortless move to accent any look. Our look book collaboration with Jordan brings that runway trend to street style. We love how she paired an animal print trouser with a soft white t-shirt and sneakers. What’s your spring go-to look?

Vivienne Hu: The Effortless Fall Style You’re Looking For

Vivienne Hu stuns again with a flirtatious and bold lineup for her Fall/Winter 2017 collection. Hu’s erstwhile run as an investment banker did not last long as her passion and skills brought her to the world of fashion—and we’re blushing about the designer’s upcoming release. Her FW17 collection quickly debunks any negative notions you have about dressing stylish and staying warm during the coolers months. While Hu’s cocktail dresses charmingly dashed across the runway of her New York Fashion Week show in February, the standout attraction was her assortment of cozy pea-coats and parkas. The outwear pieces were garnered with audacious fur pockets, necklines, and sleeves. She makes you want to quickly ditch your boring winter layers and opt for one of her high-end pieces. Olive green, mustard yellow, and cardinal red made a natural striped backdrop for numerous pieces, from swinging mini dresses to tailored jackets. Hu takes the guessing game out of getting ready for the fall and winter season. Now I’m not saying you should stick to one brand for all styling …

I Booked a One-Way Ticket and You Should Too

I did it. I am going. I have purchased my one-way ticket to Colombia and I’m not turning back—for now. In May, I leave for a two-month solo backpacking trip throughout South America. I’m nineteen years young and I’m doing it. I’m taking off and going on the trip of my fantasies. I’m excited, terrified, electrified, and hopeful. More than anything, I’m ready. After I first tasted the thrill of travel, I was hooked. When my parents first took me abroad to Mexico, they did not expect that I would fall in love. His name was the World and I was undeniably enamored. I was unleashed into the colorful layers of culture and people and exploration. It was a place so different than my New Jersey suburban standard. I didn’t want to go back. The World invited me on the best date of my life. Come travel, said the World, as he bestowed upon me the most glorious of gifts: wanderlust. Since then I have buried my face in gooey cheese in Paris, France bathed in thermal springs …

Carefree Glam was the Motto for Rack Addik’s AW17 Runway Show

The self-taught designer, Kelly Dempsey, also known as the runner-up on Season 14 of Project Runway scores big with her autumn/winter 2017 “Glitter and Grunge” collection of Rack Addik. Dempsey’s runway show produced by AMCONYC for New York Fashion Week last month showcased vibrant styles, drenched with splashes of sparkle and edge. The collection brings meaning to the words “carefree glam.” The designer successfully transitions opposing prints and textures for male and female pieces. The collection allows us to have fun with color and fabric as we tie together our inner glam with our outer street experience. Dempsey was able to explore her creative side in fabric from a young age while growing up in western Massachusetts and visiting her mother’s craft store. She combines life experiences with her inner creativity to put together eccentric everyday street-wear—her motto for defying the rules of fashion. Rack Addik’s ‘Alecia’ dress is a feminine number with shimmery accents but follows up with edgy midriff links to bring about an extra element of cool. The ‘Courtney’ dress invites us …

Ivory Couture’s Autumn/Winter 2017 Collection Makes a Bold & Elegant Stance

Ivory Couture’s “The Women” Autumn/Winter 2017 collection was a breath of bold French Victorian fashion. Creative Director and owner Bella Ivory did an amazing job with her revolutionary line that sported a very classic chic design for the season. From bold black fabrics with hints of delicate light lacework to splashes of passionate color, Ivory’s fabric combination exposes female strength, while preserving her elegance. Her abstract designs draped beautifully across fresh-faced models that confidently strutted down the runway to performing artist Chris Porter. Performing his newest party vibe single ‘Catwalk Killer,’ Porter kept the audience moving in their seats as the models blew us away look after look. There was much excitement floating around the room as the audience realized that although Ivory Couture is elegant high-fashion, it’s designed for individuals of all sizes and backgrounds. With bold colors—white, black and red, and pink being the focal hues—for her line, Ivory makes strong statements, but it’s the way she is able to mix robust fabrics like leather with delicate lacing that truly tells the story. …
