Mail Bombs: Rihanna’s Depuis 1924 Vintage Chanel Gun Earrings, Nicki Minaj’s Instagram Betsey Johnson Rose Parade Hands Printed One Piece Swimsuit, and Angela Simmons’s 106 & Park Supertrash Black Jumpsuit

It’s Friday, so it’s time for Mail Bombs!
A lot of you have expressed frustration with our new layout–we hear ya! Our transition hasn’t been as seamless as I’d like, but we’re working on fixes for everything (including our mobile site).
Until then, it’s business as usual!
Let’s dive right on in to reader mail.
Latasha types, “Where did Riri get these earrings?”

Our favorite bad gal has a thing for vintage Chanel baubles, and straight flexed on Instagram in extremely rare gun motif earrings by the French house.

The chic pieces were available at until Madame Fenty bought the last pair, but the store literally has tons of vintage Chanel accessories for you die hard fashionistas. Peruse the selection here.

Bria from the Tumblr says, “ Do you know where Nicki’s swimsuit is from?”

” Where can I find this?”
Angie loves Supertrash, and plucked her black jumpsuit from the brand’s Fall 2012 collection to appear on 106 & Park. See it below in camel:

Unfortunately her exact look is sold out, but you can get a similar look with these black jumpsuit options:

Niesha says, “I really need this dress or something similar. Can you please help me find the designer?”

“As always, love your site. Keep up the good work!”
Will do! We searched a minute for this dress (we thought it was Vivienne Westwood), but we couldn’t find it! Get a similar draped look with this green slack jersey maxi dress by Helmut Lang:
Purchase here.

Keirah types, “I’ve been looking for the perfect black string bikini and finally found it…..On Candice.”

“… Can you guys please help me find her swimsuit so I can purchase it ASAP! Summer is here & I need it!!!”

The swimsuit is super simple, though it has a few distinctive details and metal accents. I’m not 100% sure, but it looks like Candice might be wearing this $71 Charlie by MZ bikini:

In a wardrobe query, Abbie says, “Ok, now I know according to MailBomb 101, I have to be very specific. But I am so lost in love with this picture–specifically her trousers! I think it’s a picture of Joan Smalls.”
Joan Smalls
“…Her pegged trousers are way too fabulous–I’ve searched and searched for the source of this picture in addition to similar styles, but have had no luck. Can you please help me find super cute and stylish pegged trousers if this particular trousers can’t be found?”

Yes, that’s Joan Smalls! Her pants could be from anywhere, but I was able to find you a few similar styles here:

We’re gonna end with a few Unsolved Mail Bombs!
Debra says, “Where can I get this shirt!!!!”
