Over the weekend I was lurking the web and scrolling through the Chonga Rich Pinterest, cus you know... it's awesome. So anywayzzz, while admiring our pins and searching for patterns in what we've been collecting, I noticed that we've pinned a bunch of interesting pieces featuring eye-ball details. You know, eyes, peepers, ojos...the things you SEE with! Alex and I are all about the whole all-seeing-eye, third eye, evil-eye symbolism (we're chongas after all). So I had to ask myself... are eyeballs trending?! Take a look at some of the images we've been peepin' (heh):
This ruffle-y eyeball dress is out of control!
Gotta ward off the evil eye in style, mang! Love the color and stud details on this piece.
Chongas love a good, whacky manicure. These eyeballz are hot!
Our boo, M.I.A. wearing an jewel-encrusted eye headpiece in GQ. A little extreme?...We think not.
Even Kanye is wearing eyeball-bling. EYE see you, Yeezy (heheh)! Lets get with it plz.
Not that we expect to see people sporting eyeball prints all over the streets, but we think it's an interesting symbol that would be fun to incorporate into more than just a simple charm or ring. Prints, manicures, graphics, accessories... why not? Chongas like weird shit, get over it.
Keep an EYE out for this microtrend (eheh).
Now that I've made as many eyeball puns as I could possibly think of... have a fab Monday!
