Hello, and welcome to Fashion Trend Guide! I'm Melissa, and I created Fashion Trend Guide as a creative outlet in February 2007. Fashion Trend Guide aims to showcase affordable, accessible, and on-trend style from the point of view of a fashion-obsessed southern California gal with a weakness for footwear and an overstuffed closet. Here on Fashion Trend Guide, I share my love of writing, trend forecasting, travel, and photography by publishing fashion reviews, trend reports, look for less features, shopping guides, and style tips.  

A little about my educational background: I'm a UCLA graduate who also holds a degree in Fashion Merchandising. With my experience as a fashion forecasting consultant, apparel re-seller and trend spotter, I am passionate about staying on the cusp of emerging style trends. I might also have a shoe addiction (wink, wink). On Fashion Trend Guide, I utilize more than a decade of experience as a professional fashion blogger to feature my fashion forward point of view on all of the stylish things that inspire me. I hope you are inspired, too. 

I do not accept guest content, so please do not e-mail requesting to write for this site.
