If you have read just one of my posts, you are likely aware of my evil eye obsession. “They say” (whoever they really are) that we often dress ourselves according to how we feel subconsciously. If they are right, then my subconscious is a pretty loud character trying to ward off evil…or perhaps just protect me from Houston traffic.
As much as I have designed and purchased my fair share of evil eye jewelry, bags, and the like, I’m actually not superstitions at all. Weird I know. To keep the explanation simple, I just kind of like it. 🙂
When I was little, I would always look forward to my summer trips to the Middle East because it meant shopping for unique evil eye pieces unavailable in the US. It is rather fascinating how this has drastically changed over the past five or so years. American and European designers have adopted the evil eye quite intensely in their product lines. Kenzo, Nicholas Kirkwood, Diane von Furstenberg, and Mara Hoffman are some of the most recent designers to rock the evil eye. Whether you’re a big evil fan or not, there’s something pretty fierce about the look.
Anyone out there into evil eyes, or is it just me?!?!?!?
