Monday Mickey Blue Eyes

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?!?!?!?

    Not just you. I picked up several last year in Cyprus and Italy. Then I bought some more on Etsy.

    I try to wear one most days, I’m not particularly superstitious, although my best friend is and I buy them for her too!

      Oh ya? I got some really cool bracelets from Cyprus. It’s funny because I always have evil eyes on me somewhere, but I really don’t give them much thought. There’s something unique about it I guess. I’m sure Etsy has some really original pieces. My mom definitely is superstitious, so I blame her for my weird obsession.

      Wow! I had a friend who loved Day of the Dead themed items. Charlotte Olympia recently designed a line of bags and shoes with Day of te Dead skulls. Quite pricey but really cool looking.

    I love evil eyes! My dad got me a bracelet covered in evil eyes years ago when I was about 9 years old ’cause a salesman told him they were popular among teens and preteens and I’ve loved evil eyes ever since. Oh and I looooove the clutch! So cute!!
