DIY: D&G inspired sunglasses


I’ve been drooling over these red and pink Dolce & Gabbana sunglasses since last spring, but I just can’t seem to justify spending $100 on them.  I decided to take matters into my own hands and recreate the look with an old pair of sunnies.




This is a pair of brown Xhilaration sunglasses bought from Target a few years back. They are a little tattered with some minor scratch marks, but they have a nice shape, very similar to the D&G glasses from the front.



I used the same Mod Podge (Gloss-Lustre) from the glitter project, bright red and light pink acrylic paint, and a paint brush. Basically, I just applied three coats of paint onto the glasses letting it dry in between.  I topped it off with a coat of Podge to give it some refulgence.




Ta-da!! I’m thrilled with the result.  I love this color combo – been wearing red and pink together for years, and now fashion has finally caught up. Have a nice weekend everyone!
