2012 Swimwear: From the Streets to the Beach

It's that time of year where people are planning spring/summer vacations or already live in vacation areas and they need a new swimsuit.

Some only want one because they are going out of town and some just buy them every year and have a collection of swimsuits. Whatever the case may be, here are the 2012 color and print trends for swimwear this season.











REMEMBER: Buy a beach cover-up to go with your swimsuit and if you just want to sit along side the beach or pool buy a floppy hat too.

DIY: Studded Black Jean Jacket

Hey my "Fashion Lurkers",

Remember the DIY post I did about Rihanna's jean jacket? Well, I took a trip to the Goodwill and found this black denim jacket (over sized). The jacket cost me $8.00 even. I decided to use the rest of these studs I had from and I put them on the right front chest area and the top of the back of the jacket.

After I was finished, my fingers were on fire from applying the studs. The studs I used were the nail heads with the 2 prongs on the back.

I used a butter knife to apply the studs. Youtube has some tutorials that will show you how to apply them.

These are the studs. They are the standard English 77.

The back of my jacket.

This is the front right side of the jacket. (Ignore my chain shades, I was just trying those on lol)


DIY: Tiger Ripped Denim

Hey Baby Lurkers,

Now, this is a cute and edgy look that ALMOST anyone can pull off in the spring/summer. These are a pair of slashed cut jeans (that appear to be bleached) that you can pair with a plain tank or tee, add some major shoe game and a great bag  to complete the look. Make this a project for yourself.

Supplies that you Need: Jeans, Bleach, Scissors or Blade, Butter Knife, and a washing machine.

Recommend: Try pairing a neon colored accessory with this look like a shirt, shoes,  jewelry, or clutch.

Trina's New Image

As you guys may know, since Trina has come back into the spotlight, her image has completely changed from when she was with Trick Daddy. Trina has been taking a more glamorous (if you will) approach to her image.

Last night, on Styled by June, June Ambrose wanted to take Trina's brand to the next level. June had "rock star" in mind for Trina in her upcoming shoot for Paper Magazine. Trina was a bit hesitant at first but agreed to let her guard down and try new things.

I liked the photo shoot wardrobe but as for the performance gear, I did not care for it. Trina did mention to June that if she loses her fans because of this drastic change then she will put all the blame on June.

How do you guys feel about Trina's new appearance?

2012 Women & Men's Spring Colors

According to Pantone, these are the color reports for women and men in Spring 2012. Now, the colors that are labeled on these charts are not the *only* colors that you have to wear in the Spring. This is just a diagram developed by a team that has pulled information from forecasting companies and high fashion runways to narrow down that the main colors that are being implemented in this season. So, don't feel pressured to have to buy every color you see on the above chart. However, I want you guys to be aware and informed about the colors of the season and the direction color forecasters have gone in for men and women in Spring 2012.


Kim K's Cakes get Turned to Powdered Donuts

Kim K was walking the red carpet for her perfume launch and BLAME, BOOM, WOOSH! An Asian lady covered Kim in flour. The lady was hauled off in a cop car after the attack. I'm pretty sure Kim was extremely humiliated and probably started to cry like she always does on the Kardashian Show. But, whatever; good thing she is not hurt.

Now I just want to know what's going to happen to the Asian lady? And what was her motive? LOL

Here are some pics of the donut making of Kim Kardashian.

That cobalt blouse was fyre. Dang, that Asian lady ruined a fyre outfit.

Ciara's New Look: Do You Like???

I'm feelin Ciara's new look. I was inspired by her and many other celebs who are rocking this ombre hair. So, I'm looking forward to completing my 3/4 wig that will be similar to Ciara's look.  I feel that this hairstyle is becoming on Ciara and fits her overall look. WERK it Ciara.

What do my baby lurkers think about this look?


Rihanna Rocking Vlieger & Vandam

Love this clutch that Rihanna is wearing. She is wearing a Handcuff Grey Clutch by Vlieger & Vandam. This clutch my look like its just a splurge but it is clearly not, due to the price I witnessed on the site. Anyway, I love this designer; they are so dangerous with their designs.

In-Store Find: June Ambrose Style for Target

I was at Target yesterday and I came across the cobalt heels that where in the promo pics for Target's Spring/Summer line. These shoes are just $30 and are really cute in person. Go scoop these up for the season (if you don't have any blue suede shoes).


Bitching Ain't Easy

Check out this website Bitching and Junkfood, they are a European based online boutique that has some edgy pieces. I particularly like these shorts below. But for my DIY girls/boys, this is an easy at home project.

Get the Look: DIY Rihanna's Denim Jacket

This is a really easy look to achieve. And you can make this a project for yourself over Spring Break. Try making this distressed denim jacket that Rihanna is wearing. Jean jackets are a basic that everyone needs in their closet. So, go to the thrift store and buy a jean jacket so you can get started.

*WARNING-Please be careful when using sharp tools like knives, blades, and scissors. Also, stay in a well ventilated area when working with bleach or any other chemicals.
