It’s pretty much a known fashion fact that Miu Miu has mastered the art of glittering and bedazzling. So, Soph and I figured, why not follow suit and give their current sparklers a go with DIY miu miu inspired sunnies.

Here’s how we transformed a pair of vintage sunglasses into the Italian house’s must have ruby “Noir” glitter shades.

How to: DIY miu miu inspired sunnies

You will need:
Vintage sunglasses (ours are from Etsy)
Transparent drying glue
Red glitter
Paint brush
Paper plate
Clear gloss finishing spray

1. Cover the lenses with tape to protect them from the glue.

2. Create a paste with equal parts glue and glitter.

3. Using a paint brush, paint glitter mixture onto the frames.

4. Let the glitter dry and spray them with the gloss finish. Remove tape and wear!

a peek inside: amy neunsinger and shawn gold’s laurel canyon home

I had the pleasure of exploring Amy Neunsinger and Shawn Gold’s eclectic home last night and couldn’t get enough of each and every detail (luckyily for us, either could Martha Stewart and a dozen other sites).

The family room that opens up into the garden, open shelving in the kitchen, barn doors on sliding tracks, industrial elements mixed with feminine florals, exposed air ducts, polished concrete floors and raw concrete walls, reclaimed woods, limestone tiles, a built in trampoline, an outdoor dining room, passageways for days, a claw foot tub, relaxed and lived in couches, layered hides, shearling throws, glowing sea shells, an antique bathtub filled with orchids, infinite succulents, white on white on white in the most perfected way, piles of vintage books topped with soft roses, French fixtures, sun drenched airiness, etcetera, etcetera, etcetera and beyond.

I mean. Smitten.
