RichBroads x Darla Magazine Giveaway


Hello! Out of everyone that I've met so far in Philadelphia, I've felt most inspired by one of my former peers at Philadelphia University, Victoria Pickens. Like myself, Victoria attended PhilaU for fashion merchandising and management. I met her through my school's style publication, StyleLine, when I was just a freshman. I was instantly taken aback by her effortlessly cool style and clear drive and motivation. Through working with Victoria on StyleLine, I began to learn more about her and admired her hard work and dedication to her fashion-oriented goals. 

Victoria graduated last year and has since then launched her own online magazine, Darla Magazine, and more recently through Darla Magazine, co-launched a streetwear brand, Rich Broads. Rich Broads seeks to provide creative, driven women with hip streetwear. Location also plays a key role in the brand as the brand is based in both Richmond, VA and Philadelphia, PA. Victoria explains, "We're excited to start creating and sharing merchandise that reflect the lifestyles and cultures of girls from Richmond, VA + Philadelphia, PA. Both cities are close-knit with creatives who are passionate about fashion, music, and various other forms of art and we want to share our communities with the world from the perspective of a 20-something dream chaser."

So far, Rich Broads has released a mini collection of three different limited edition tee shirts: a "Petty" tee, a "hustle" tee and a "DREAM" tee. The tees retail for $30 each. 

And today, you're in luck because RichBroads is giving away one of their limited edition "Petty" tees to one lucky Fashion, Trends & More reader. Head on over to my Instagram account @toriradday to enter to win. All you have to do is follow myself @toriradday, @richbroads and @darlalaland on Instagram, like the giveaway photo and leaving a comment tagging two of your best friends who might like a chance to win the tee. What are you waiting for? Go ahead and enter! Giveaway will run for two weeks from today.

KJCouture $50 Gift Card Giveaway

Hello! Recently, KJCouture sent me this gorgeous blush-colored dress to style on my blog and the second that I received it, I immediately fell in love. This is their "blush cutout bodycon dress" and it's currently on sale for $44.99.

The dusty pink blush color of the dress mimics the charming shade of "rose quartz", one of the hottest colors this season as deemed by Pantone, the color expert. Besides its trendy color, I'm digging the interesting neckline of this dress. Like the blush-color, the neckline is also very on trend right now. What I love about this neckline even more than its trendiness is the retro sixties essence. The trendy meets mod appeal of this dress has me falling head over heels in love with it.

So when my best friend, Taisha, asked me to be a part of her final photography shoot, I just knew that I had to pull this little blush-colored dress out for the occasion. To create contrast, I styled the dress with a major faux fur coat and neutral platform heels. I layered on golden accessories including a handful of golden rings and delicate golden earrings. I added to the glam appeal of the look with a fabulous shade of cat-eye sunglasses and a bold red lipstick.

Want the blush-colored bodycon dress that I'm wearing for yourself but don't have extra money to spend on your wardrobe right now? Well, today I've teamed up with KJCouture to give one reader a $50 KJCouture gift card! If you're the lucky giveaway winner, you could use your gift card to scoop up one of their blush bodycon dresses for yourself. They also have a wonderful selection of other dresses, tops, bottoms, rompers, jumpsuits, outerwear, swimwear, shoes and accessories. If you browse through their site, you're almost guaranteed to fall in love with something (or if you're like me, basically everything.)
