Thursday, June 14, 2012 Guest Edit: Giving Them Shade With Vintage Virgin

Now that it’s summertime, everyone’s blabbing about what they’re going to wear, whether it’s “Ugh, I need a new bag” or “OMG, look at these platforms!” But what about your face? I like to complete a look from head to toe, so when it comes to sunnies, “ordinary” just doesn’t cut it.

Take a risk this season by adding a little flair to your shades with different shapes, flowers, jewels and bright colors. Right now, I’m crushing on the Muffin Top Shades – the shape is seriously to-die-for! But could you imagine if I DIYed tiny pastel flowers across the top, or added little pearls to the corners of the Raise the Bar Shades? Every time I look at a pair of sunnies now, I just wanna do things to them! Uh oh, I feel a trip to the art supply store coming on.

Get some next-level inspiration from my faves floating around the interwebs, and feel free to try this at home on your favorite Nasty Gal sunnies!

    These sunnies are beautiful! I have seen all of them swirling around tumblr and could easily be remade as a DIY project for anybody who is willing to try! Love Jessica Virgin and her style too

    Oh you’ve done it again and gotten extra sweet and nasty on us. Great idea — and for california girls like myself, we can wear babies likes these ALL. YEAR. ROUND!
