“There’s a side of my personality that goes against the East Coast educated person and wants to be a pin-up girl in garages across America…there’s a side that wants the pink Angora bikini. “-Mira Sorvino
It’s the beginning of spring, the weather is warming up and a strong need to get close to the beaches and spring break parties are going on as I write. When I decide to get in a bikini this summer it will resemble one of these. These are some of the swimsuits that caught my eye. Edgy colors like platinum and wild designs like animal prints and sexy Gaga hair will make any vacation complete. Good bye layered winter and h.e.l.l.o. skimpy spring and summer we have something waiting for you. So ladies grab your sexy swimsuit, flip-flops, Raybans and sunscreen and forget about all the stress of work and go on now and play.
Random swim suit fact: The most expensive swimsuit in the world is worth $30 million. Designed by Susan Rosen and Steinmetz Diamonds, the bikini is made with more than 150 carats of D flawless diamonds which are all set in platinum.
These celebs do it best in their bikinis, Riri, Bey and more show us how to hit the beach flawlessly. How do you like the above swimsuits? Do you think they would make you feel confident going on the beach with a lot of other HOT chicks?
“Never use the word “cheap”. Today everybody can look chic in inexpensive clothes (the rich buy them too). There is good clothing design on every level today. You can be the chicest thing in the world in a T-shirt and jeans — it’s up to you.”
― Karl Lagerfeld
I would agree with Karl Lagerfield, the creative director for the Chanel House that you can look cute for less. I myself am a big fan of t-shirts with jeans.
Now Target actually has these chic red jeans for just $22.99. They are pictured here.
I used to think that materialistic things were all that mattered when I was going through that tough stage of being an adolescent to being a woman. Now that I am an adult I take time to look back and what I was wearing on the outside could not compare to the collossal individualsoul that I house inside. So in reference to designers that think from the inside one sticks out in my mind, none other than Isabel Toledo. The mind behind our first lady Michelle Obama’s inaugaration dress. Toledo states in her book, Roots of Style that “without fashion, I never would have had a voice. Now with this book, I have examined the shape of my life from the inside as a way of connecting the dots between my childhood as a girl growiny up in Cuba and my life today as an independent fashion designer.” So you see fashion comes from the inside reflecting the diverse upbringings and the environment of the designer. Style is something that was taught very young and cannot be relearned at later age. Style is innate; either you have it or you don’t!
“Success is often achieved by those who don’t know that failure is inevitable.” -Coco Chanel
What does this mean to me….? It makes perfect sense. I will explain by an example. I always had an eye for clothing of any type. It made my adrenaline flow and my heart stop and it often made me breathless. I graduated from high school and I knew I would make it as a fashion merchandiser until someone who was in the industry came to my school and gave a somewhat mundane speech.
She explained how it would be so much work to become what I wanted to become which was a buyer. I dropped out of fashion school because of her dogma; her thoughts on my dreams. I was now going to become a wonderful attorney. Yeah right! I did not love the law like I loved fashion and I failed miserably. Lol! Failing at law has brought me back to my first love; which is fashion.
Chanel was so right. So I say to you whatever it is that you want to be, that thing that you think about every day and every night. That thing which you would do for free. Just Do It!
