Hamsa




Jumper: Boy London; Dress: Asos; Sneakers: Nike / Air Force One

Ohhh, look what I found. Some pictures my wonderful cousin Lina took of me when I was in Germany for my Sister´s wedding in June. I totally forgot to upload them. It was a nice and sunny day but couldn´t really leave the house without my old Boy London - Jumper. 

I don´t know about you but I am still a bit superstitious sometimes. Blue Eye and Fatima´s Hand are one of the most well known things known for protecting you from the evil eye. When I was younger we used to wear necklaces with the eye. Now, a few years later it became a fashion trend. You can find them almost everywhere as jewellry or on your clothes. Thats why I couldn´t say no to this cool dress with the print of "Fatima´s Hand" on it. 


From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout the Middle East and North Africa, and commonly used in jewelry and wall hangings.[1][2] Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history, the hamsa is believed to provide defense against the evil eye. The symbol predates Christianity and Islam. In Islam, it is also known as the hand of Fatima, so named to commemorate Muhammad's daughter Fatima Zahra . Levantine Christians call it the hand of Mary, for the Virgin Mary. Jews refer to it as the hand of Miriam in remembrance of the biblical Miriam, sister of Moses  and Aaron.
