Trends: Feeling Dreamy

Stars, cosmos and space seem to be all the rage in both the art and design world these days. The trend has been cropping up here, there and seemingly everywhere. From leggings sprinkled with crescent moons, to canvasses adorned with solar systems, it seems that all of us are star-gazing.

And though the itch to throw a milky way print onto new Pierogi Picnic creations hasn’t struck yet, I have been digging for Etsy items that have taken to space. Sneak a peek at my recent favorites in this dreamy treasury.

Inspiration: Mermaids the film

I don’t know how – but I had never seen the early nineties film Mermaids until recently. I can’t believe what I had been missing! Gracing the screen are gems such as Cher, Winona Ryder and a wee little Christina Ricci. But what got me beyond the great plot, kitschy quality and great art direction was the styling. Here’s how to emulate the movie’s incredible looks:

Trends: Neon Florals

The weather is warm, the season is right and I’m seeing neon patterns every which way I turn! I’m loving the neo-floral prints I’ve been spotting on blogs, etsy and beyond. I’m not usually a fan of the style – but something about turning them on their head with neon hues makes them cutting edge and worthy of my devotion. So if you’ve feared looking like a sofa, try out one of these looks to take this trend for a spin.

Trends: Mullet Hems

By far the funniest name for a fashion trend – “mullet hems” are one of my favorite designs to be popping up this season. What is a mullet hem? A top or tunic that is business up front and a party in the back. Or to put it plainly, short on one side and long in the rear. This style lends itself wonderfully for layering with long tanks and leggins in the fall or even a mini and heels in the spring. So keep your eyes peeled as you’ll be seeing this shape for many months to come!  1. Chic Moss 2. Trop Rouge 3. Mikkat Market 4. Pierogi Picnic 5. Urban Outfitters 6. Fade to Grey
