Hamsa hand

The Hamsa is a palm-shaped amulet, commonly used in jewellery and wall decoration. Nowadays,it’s also popular as a print on clothes. The open right hand is recognised and used as a sight of protection.
The Hamsa is believed to provide shelter against the evil eye. A couple of weeks ago, I went for some shopping in Antwerp. It’s almost a tradition since I always go to Antwerp during sales season! The stores are much bigger but more importantly, there are stores you cannot find in the Netherlands. One  of them is Urban Outfitters, where I found this top.  I combined the top with a split maxi skirt, a yellow bag and some ankle boots from Aldo.

Speaking about the Hamsa again, while I got these photos taken, I almost fell into the water! I guess the hand got me lucky and protected me from actually fall into the IJ.

Top: Urban Outfitters € 12
Skirt: Mango € 15
Ankle boots: Aldo $ 60
Bag: Primark € 7
