I’ve acquired some new pieces of flair that help add some quirk to my current wardrobe.
Before studying abroad in Italy in ’04 I bought a cute, trendy pair of frames from Target. They’ve been oh so good to me these frames. Six years and counting and they’re still going strong. I even think they still look really good on, not at all outdated. But I figured it was time to get a new pair, I just needed some change in the eye department. And since I recently signed up for eye insurance at work AND made the switch from hard to soft contact lenses it only seemed fitting to update this area of eye care as well.
Voila, meet my new pair of hot frames. They’re by Nicole Miller and I had a lot of help from Mike (a flamboyant man I’d heard tales about) picking them out! On the outside they’re dark brown with hibiscus flower patterns and on the inside they have lime green horizontal stripes. So fun, LOVE THEM!
And now meet my new headband, I made it myself which makes me love it even more. I was inspired by these and have high hopes and even the necessary supplies to create one of the bow variety. This one was inspired simply by walking through the bead aisle in JoAnn Fabrics and coming across some luscious turquoise and silver beads. So I bought them, some thick black felt, and a plain headband. Once home I cut out a circle of felt, applied the beads via hot glue, then glued the beaded felt circle to the side of the band, and DONE. I’m really happy with it and I think we’ll have a long and happy life together.
