Indeed, it seems that many designers have a little something to unleash the “AdR” in us with their introduction of the embellished sunglasses.

一闪一闪亮晶晶。放眼2013年春夏服装秀,发现不少设计师都推出镶钻墨镜,让大家在今年夏天可以闪闪发亮,势不可挡。镶在镜框上的图案可以是非常耀眼夸张的,也可以是高贵典雅的。当中,Dolce & Gabbana的金色玫瑰图案也引起不少博客自己DIY,各个都将小玫瑰饰品以及小亮片粘在旧的墨镜上。若您对DIY有兴趣,不妨观看Refinery29的视频
