Racquet Baller Goggles

Recently, I chose to play racquetball goggle-free, because I didn’t want to wear the dorky wraparound goggles. I quickly learned my lesson when I oh-so-skillfully returned the ball with none other than – you guessed it – my eye. After that incident, I swore to never play goggle-less again, and racked my brain for solutions to my style vs. safety dilemma. As you can see in the picture above, I found an answer. With a pack of silver-backed clear crystals, jewelry glue, and a little inspiration from the great Elton John, not only will I want to wear my goggles every time I play, maybe I’ll bust out into a tiny dance after winning my next match!

Would you prefer to put a little bling in your swing? What everyday items have you taken to a new level by bedazzling?

    Great idea! I got a black eye playing racquetball a week before my wedding. And I still haven’t started wearing goggles. Now I’ll at least think about it.

    Lol – I laughed out loud at your raquetball story – but only because you’re okay! Also, I love these.

    Wow those goggles actually make me want to take up racquetball. Nice bejewelling skills.

    I recently took a fabric painting and dye class and had to wear a not so fashionable respirator. But with some bedazzling I could stay healthy and look chic.
