I am gaga over the cool whimsy of Elsa Schiaparelli sunglasses.
If I make it to the exhibit at the Met (Schiaparelli and Prada: Impossible Conversations), I might break my rule about matchy-matchy dressing.
I couldn't resist trying to embellish a pair of sunglasses, inspired by Schiaparelli's art.
My materials: a pair of sunglasses with a strong shape from Tar-zhay. Also a somewhat unusual color: loden green.
Resin flowers from a craft store. They're putty, not pink.
Swarovski crystals and glue. Crystals are shades of moss and coffee.
The result (so far) is pretty nutty, but I like it. Tomorrow I may add flowers and crystals to the stems.
And although I'm not frightened off by a DIY, the PIY (photograph it yourself) remains a challenge.
(The requisite hipstamatic filter.)
