evil eye

the nazar or the evil eye stone is an amulet that is meant to protect against the evil eye. a friend of mine who visited turkey a couple of years ago brought me this evil eye pendant and i've been fascinated with it ever since. i wanted to wear it today, and since i love to get all matchy-matchy with my accessories, i went for blue earrings and a lapis lazuli ring. the ring was also a gift and is one of my favorite as it has such a vintage vibe to it. i remember reading adventure books as a kid and all the princesses wore lapis lazuli stones. also, i've been developing a thing for shirt dresses lately. i am not a big fan of button down shirts as they seem too corporate, so the ones i actually own have either gingham/ checkered prints, stripes or fun little skull head prints. but shirt dresses are another story. they have that feminine versus masculine touch i sometimes look for in certain items. cannot wait to wear this blue stripped shirt dress in the summer  with a pair of sandals. but for now, since it's been raining cats and dogs for days, I paired it with snake skin leggings and oxfords.

  5. A Nazar or evil eye stone (Turkish : Nazar Boncuğu) is an amulet from ancient mythologhy that protects against the evil eye.
