Who doesn't love bright colors during summertime? I was so tired of black and gray everywhere, even though I love black and gray- it is just so refreshing to see pops of color again! I am especially loving the neon jewelry and handbags. I am in love with the hotpink handbag in the picture below. Don't be afraid to try neons this summer, this is a fun trend. If you aren't sure about purchasing a pair of neon pumps or a bright dress why not a cute neon clutch or handbag? Or, for a fun DIY project, you could purchase a neon spray paint from Michael's or a Home Depot type store and spray paint some of your own jewelry.
I haven't been under a rock or anything, I am aware that the Spike trend has been going strong for a while now. However, over the past 6 months or so I can't seem to get enough of them! I think what I'm drawn to with spikes is they are edgy/punk rockish but they can be mixed beautifully with more feminime pieces, such as crystals. Not only are they fun with jewelry, but spike studs add a fun element to purses/handbags as well as shoes (think Converse).
Here is a great DIY tutorial from the blog B Headed from back in December on how to stud your own Converse http://bheaded.com/2011/12/14/how-to-stud-your-converse-at-home/. Great blog that I recommend checking out!
