Trendspotting: Neon Lipstick + A Little Insight

Hello beautiful, Spiiirits.

How are you guys doing today??

I’ve seen better ones myself. It’s a lot of fake people that I’m finding myself having to exterminate out of my life. Its an exhausting process and quite unnerving (especially when “friends” turn to enemies after you put your foot down and demand they stop incessantly using you). Seems leeches and life-force suckers get quite angry when you try to hold them accountable. There’s a good couple of people I can apply that too, right now, sadly. But in such testing times, those who truly care become apparent as well, and I am thankful for those lights in the darkness. This process is all for the growth and betterment of myself and those around me and I appreciate it for the blessing that it is.

Welp, that was just a little insight into my life at the moment. Moving on from that…

Spring is in FULLLLLL swing and with it’s presence has come a couple sassy trends for the fashion savvy.

One of those hot, hot, hot trends is NEON LIPSTICK!

…Pinks, Oranges, Greens, Yellow, Blues…

neon…Neon…NEON!

Check out a couple of celebs rocking the trend.

Trendspotting Tuesday: Fab or Fail? Studded Hats for Men

Today I am doing a sort of hybrid of Menswear Monday & Trendspotting Tuesday by bringing a growingly male-centered trend to the spotlight.

It seems 2013 is the year of the bling for men. More and more, male bling and accessories are becoming more common place in the “swaggy” male’s wardrobe. In full embrace of this trend, the studded hat is starting to rear its head in men’s fashion. Justin Bieber was spotted rocking one the other day.

The Biebs is not the only one. I have seen many men on my Instagram feed, rockin’ their studded hats, as well as a number of other male celebs. It seems as though this is the new way of jazzing up your snapback and taking urban style to another level.

I personally am not against the studded hat for men, though not particularly a fan. Some men are really able to pull them off nicely while others look a little loud and overzealous in their attempts at head-bling style. Again I don’t think they are the worst thing ever and some pull them off quite well, but I have seen some hat designs that take it too far and straight into the lane of gaudiness.

How do you guys feel about bling for men & the studded hat trend in particular? Is it totally FAB? Or a total FAIL?

Star Style Saturdays: Rihanna

There are few fashion mavens more style savvy than this badass girl. Rihanna style is eclectic, edgy, and exciting. She always keeps her look fresh and up to date and she is a definite trendsetter. She does and wears what she wants, when SHE wants. Her Unapologetic style is always sure to turn heads & with her 7th album, by the same name, coming out on Monday….it’s time we take notice.

I’ve have never seen somebody that looks so good in EVERYTHING! No matter what hair, or style of clothes she wears she just exudes badassery in a way thats alllllll girl power. Keep rockin’ it Rih Rih, can’t wait to hear your new album!

Do you guys just ADORE her style like I do?

Until Next Time…

Trendspotting: Leather

Hola my dears!

Today is a beautiful day and its actually starting to get cold in the South (whadya know?) And I’m  actually not a big fan of the cold but its still bearable out there, just cold enough that I can pull out a few cute cold-weather items. 🙂

This leads me to a spotlight on the perfect cold-weather trend for fall…LEATHER. Leather is a big trend for fall. I’m seeing it on celebs, runways, and everyday street fashionistas, and as it gets colder, this is definitely a trend to embrace. Leather is mostly worn in black, but there has been a rise of colored leather as well, as of late. Check out a couple of pictures I accrued below of the trend being put to best use…

The leather trend comes in various colors, shapes and styles so there is something leather out there that can flatter anyone. Gon’ get you some!!

Star Style Profile : Solange Knowles

Today I am shining the spotlight on one stylish starlett: Solange Knowles. Solange’s style is the epitome of eclectic, eccentricity. She is the queen of mixing prints and she is never afraid to step outside of the box with her wardrobe. Lets admire her style a moment shall we?

 This songstress is one fearless fashionista, who exibits no-holds-barred style everytime she steps out.

How to Achieve Solange-Style :

1. Go bold with color (Solange almost always has on at least one bold color, whether in her wardrobe or makeup)

2. Mix Prints (If thats a daunting task for you, you can find a little help here)

3. Get funky up top (Most times this Sol-Angel is either rockin’ a funky-fresh headwrap or big volumized hair)

4. Take Fashion Risks (Don’t go with the norm ! )

I love, love, love Solange’s funky and eclectic style ! Don’t you?

Until Next Time!

3D Nails: Fab or Fail ?

Lately I have noticed a rise in 3D nail designs. Whether its studs, chains, bling, flowers, gems or pearls,more and more girls are opting to add dimensions to their nail styles. Celebs such as Rihanna, Lady Gaga, and Beyonce have been spotted sporting this new nail trend as well.

I personally like the trend, but in my opinion it is one that can be easily overdone. As long as its kept in moderation, I am a fan.

What do you guys think of the trend? Is it Fashion Fab or a Fashion Fail? Would you ever try it?
