At this very moment most cities in South Africa are experiencing the unfortunate reality of it being winter. Brrrr!
So to get me through the unwelcome chilly season I have been trolling the internet to get ready for summer and the ocean. This year that meant buying tons of sunglasses I don’t actually need. As you can imagine - the backlash of an addiction is... instant boredom!
Recently I discovered a couple of boards on Pinterest that illustrates how to add some cool funk to sunglasses. Here’s a list of ways in which you can change and personalise your sunglasses:
GLITTER AND STRIPES
Shannon Madigan of Madigan Made is my sunglasses soul sister. She's a fan of cheap sunglasses because she likes owning a wide variety of them, she often breaks them and loses them too. Check out on Mod Podge Rocks how she switches-up her regular sunnies.
ADD THE DOTS
For those (like myself) who does not have any crafty talent, Natalie of natalme.com shows how to neatly add dots with the help of a pencil and pin.
Wonderful divinecaroline.com has a series of tutorials on how to embellish your sunglasses with flowers and even a little bit of bling.
ROPES OF PEARLS
Coco Chanel once said: "A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls," and then Rihanna brought the need to own a pair of pearl embellished sunglasses when she performed with these Chanel sunglasses. Here's a simple way to create your own.
DASH OF BEADS
Miss Kris is going to make you say "oh why didn't I think of that?"
