Shut Up and Dye: A Gemini Hair Story

Geminis don't take their hair so seriously, they play with it like a toy--trying new styles and colors on a whim. Take advantage of the pale candy colored hues. A hint of baby pink underneath your locks will be a good way to soften up your look, yet still satisfy your out of the norm nature. If you're not into cotton candy colors: my fav for Gems is platinum- like white platinum! It's light, airy, and looks great amongst all the color you wear. Yes, it's a bitch to keep up with--just suck it up. As for length, I'd keep it at about shoulder length. It adds just enough sophistication, so you're not a walking toy box

Since, I had Cynthia, the owner & designer's brain to pick for a moment, I thought I'd ask her a few questions about her personal style & the laws of bikinis:

Q: So, Cynthia, First is First: when's your birthdate?Zodiac Sign?

A: March 29, 1981 Aries

Q: How would you describe your style in 3 words?

A: Feminine, Colorful, Beach-y

Q: What/Who are your style influences?

A: A few of the many would be young Farrah Fawcett, and the characters in Gossip Girls. I also really love seeing what Katy Perry is always wearing, I used to love making my own clothes like that.

Q: If you could raid anyone's closet, whose would it be? You can take everything you want!

A: Lauren Conrad. She probably has a ton of both cute casual clothes and fun cocktail dresses!

Q: What City in the world best represents your personal style?

A. I'm really bad at narrowing things down to one. I like mixes, so I say a mix of Los Angeles with Nashville. I mention Nashville because I love plaid button ups, big hair and dresses with cowboy boots (maybe not all together at once though ;)

Q: If you could choose an Era to live in simply for the fashion, which would you choose?

A: I would have loved to dress in the 18th century. Does not look comfortable but so beautiful!

Q: What does the color Red make you feel?

A: Red can sometime make me feel a bit uncomfortable LOL I am more of a turquoise person

Q: How did you come up with the name of your swimsuit line, "Cynababy"?

A: My friends and loved ones always called me Cyn. Even had a friend called me Cynabagel (not idea how she came up with that). After that, insert word after Cyna___ just seemed to be a trend when talking to me. Cynababy was one of the many cyna names. When I was thinking of names for the line, Cynababy stuck out and just fit right:)

Q: Which of your swimsuits is your absolute favorite one? Why?

A: It's so hard to chose one, I have many favorites that come everywhere with me. But I LOVE Sailor Dreams. I just love the nautical feel with the stripes, yet the contrast with the bright colors :) My other favorites are the royal blue fringe and the new ruched denim! Just a few to name, not joking its really hard to chose...

Q: What's your expert advice to give a beach bunny when shopping for the perfect swimsuit this season?

A: Dare to try something out of your comfort zone, you may be surprised how good you look and feel in it :)

Q: What's coming up next for Cynababy? What can we be on the look-out for??

A: I would say look out for more diversity in the Cynababy styles and more prints. I want to add more new cuts for different body types. Always check back on the website for new styles. I don't make bikinis that only fit the one season, so if something seems super cute, and fits well, I make it no matter what time of the year it is.

So, there you have it!
Summer is underway and every sign can acquire their own individual set of tan lines!

Gemini: If you are involved in a conflict with a friend or relative, you may need to change your view on the situation if you really want to be fair. Your opinion may be based on a set of circumstances that have changed, but because you have dug in your heels about the issue for so long, you are stuck in the past, in a way. You don't see the new outlook because your judgement is clouded by what you knew to be true in the past. It will take a complete break from the situation to begin to see it anew again. Give yourself a chance to modify your viewpoint.

Wrist Wardrobe & Finger Candy: Outfitting a Gemini's Best Feature

Gemini, SHOW OFF Your hands! They are your tool--you write, you paint, you draw, you create, you probably speak sign language, you certainly communicate with them--You use them to gesticulate when speaking, and that's 90% of the time, so lets dress those bad boys up! Layer on the bracelets-colorful friendship bracelets & studded numbers. The more the merrier. Pile on the finger candy too- rings and things should be playful and pop-inspired. Nothing fancy shmancy: rings with words or objects are your best bets. Conversation pieces are key for Geminis. ps- If you can find things in doubles or double fingered rings..all the better!


NEW ITEM at the Dress Upon a Star Store!! SHOP ON!

A shirt for a Conservative Tease! Button it up to your neck 'cause you're modest, but it's sheer for your sheerly salacious intentions. Wear it how you please and enjoy!

Gemini: You may now be clinging to something that seems stable but is not. Instead of taking your chances, stay away from the edge all together.

GEMINI Must Haves:
A Bold Color (yellow much?) + Vintage Norma Kamali "OMO" crop sweater + Clear jellies

This is my Laundry and Target outfit.
Nothing says mundane chores like a yellow cape.
I think the people in target appreciated it too-
-unless that was confusion on their face.
Needless to say, no one was wearing the same outfit.
