I Promise You the Sun and the Moon

YSL moon and sun dresses

On Monday, August 21st, for the first time in 99 years, a total solar eclipse will sweep across the entire continental United States. Weather permitting, it will be visible from a narrow path spanning all across the USA from the West Coast to the East Coast. More than 10 million people are traveling from all over the world to view this. In honor of this rare occurrence, I thought I’d do a roundup of some ‘out of this world’ sun and moon themed items (stars, optional).
