It’s Friday, everyone! You’ve made it through the week and in a matter of mere hours, it will time to relax and get your weekend groove on. (Have I sold you on how great Fridays are??)
Let’s set the scene. You leave the office and because you’ve completed that big project or just generally kicked butt this week, you want to go out and let loose. You slide into your trusty LBD and just before you head out, you want to know that the universe is on your side. I mean clearly with the awesome week you’ve just had everything is going pretty well, but you want some extra insurance.
The perfect accessory for this situation is Begum Khan’s Evil Eye clutch ($2,550). It will protect you from evil and it’s a great conversation piece.
Are you familiar with the meaning behind the evil eye symbol? The symbol of the evil eye was first recorded by the Mesopotamian about 5,000 years ago in cuneiform on clay tablets. You’ve probably heard the expression about giving a person the evil eye meaning, “a curse believed to be cast by a malevolent glare, usually given to a person when they are unaware.” Today, when someone references this expression they most likely are referring to a person giving another person a dirty look. But just a few thousand years ago, they really believed in the evil eye curse causing another person harm. Many cultures believe that receiving the evil eye will cause misfortune or injury. To counteract the evil eye curse, talismans were created to protect against the evil eye. So, to ward off the curse of the evil eye, you wear an evil eye and it will protect you against evil forces.
We could all use a little extra insurance to protect us against evil, right?
