I’m loving my new Versus Versace one shoulder dress with Medusa coins from Shopbop. Heading out to an early dinner party I decided to put my hair up in a bun and let my pearl earcuff do some magic on my ears.
I personally love Medusa and anything with Medusa coins. I read a lot about the history of Medusa and why Versace uses her. In Greek mythology Medusa was a monster, generally described as having the face of a hideous human female with living venomous snakes in place of hair. Gazing directly into her eyes would turn onlookers to stone. Medusa has been featured in several works of fiction, including video games, movies, cartoons and books. She’s Gianni Versace’s symbol and was chosen because she represents beauty, art, and philosophy.
