A couple of days ago, I posted about an outfit I wore in Santa Fe that included a very special pair of sunglasses. These sunglasses (called "The Melissa") were part of a collaboration between myself and my absolute favorite glasses crafters, Tumbleweeds Handcraft. The owners Beca and Doug are really amazing people who also happen to be ridiculously talented, so needless to say, I was very honored when they approached me about co-designing a pair of sunnies. And I was blown away (seriously) when I saw the finished product. The silver-outlined turquoise triangles, three-toned wood style, and overall craftsmanship couldn't be more perfect.
Beca and Doug produced a very limited collection of this design which were featured on Fab.com and are now available in their Etsy shop. They also allowed me to choose a charity to which 10% of sales would be donated. I chose my favorite nonprofit, Grey Muzzle - an incredible organization devoted to improving the lives of at-risk senior dogs by providing funding and resources to animal shelters, rescue groups, and sanctuaries. This was truly one of my all-time favorite collaborations, and I couldn't be more grateful to Tumbleweeds for asking me to be part of it. (Beca and Doug, you guys freaking rock. For real.)
Melissa Sunglasses, worth $145!
