Eye-catching Trend

EyeIt may sound eerie but ocular pieces have been staring back at us lately.  Big fashion labels like Vera Wang and Kenzo Takada unleashed the power of the all-seeing eye in their outfits for their Fall/Winter 2013 collections.  Do you want to get in on this eye-catching look?  Take a scroll through our favorite picks of clothes, stylish accessories and eye-poppin’ home decor.

FrostWe’ve been loving this Insight Necklace ($430) from Lulu Frost.  This statement necklace features several eye-shaped links with allover crystal embellishment.

all-seeing-eye-5We found a few design ideas that translate the all-seeing eye trend from runway to room. These playful pillows will help you wake up bushy tailed and bright eyed.  We would have loved this in my teenie-boppin’ years.  

From the mystical third eye to the protective evil eye, and even to the cartoonish googly eye, peepers have suddenly taken the fashion world by storm — and even we didn’t see this one coming!  What’s your favorite ocular trend do you have your eye on?



Pardon us while we have a giant fashion-gasm!  The gals at Filthy Rebena currently have the biggest crush on this amazing alpaca shawl.  Props to the notorious, all seeing eye symbol.  Perhaps we have such a fashion crush on this shawl because its a feminine take on the occult symbolism we love so much.  And!  We always have a special place in our hearts for a shawl that just knows how to snuggle up.  Of course, the Maricopa Wrap from Anthropologie is completely sold out.  The good news is that now we have another designer to get tons of inspiration from – Mara Hoffman.  Do you have a shawl, scarf or fashion crush?  Let us know in the comments below!
