I Have No Idea if My Future is Bright, but I'm Going to Look Fabulous Anyway
Right now there are lots of big, new sunglasses where the sides are especially visually appealing. I’ve selected some of my favorites. I’m listening to some Blondie while I write this, which always puts me in a good mood. So, put on some of your favorite music and get ready to shop for sunglasses. You don’t want to be the only gal who has to shade her eyes with a hand. Right now sunglasses are more than just a helpful tool, they are practically a necessary accessory for summer. And size does matter here – the bigger the better.
Want white shades? They’re fresh and funky, I don’t blame you. I like the Marc By Marc Jacobs White Link Sunglasses from bloomingdale’s ($115.00). The shades are tinted brown to match the gold accents. Wear these with a white one-piece retro swimsuit and channel the infamous Marilyn Monroe. And red lips – I’d do that, too.
Maybe you want the option of the standard black sunglasses, with a twist. Well, far be it from me to tell you what you have to do. So, I’ll just point out the Dior Oversized Shield Sunglasses from Saks Fifth Avenue ($290.00) and stand back while you look at them in awe.
Okay, I lied. I have to tell you why I like these. Some women like to sport brand names, and that’s why these are perfect – they proclaim DIOR for the world to see. And there’s absolutely nothing wrong with Dior. In fact, I’m very fond of the Dior Quadrille Shield Sunglasses, as well. They’re from Saks ($350.00). They remind me a bit of the woven totes I was writing about earlier. Although, I wouldn’t wear these with a woven tote – it’s just a tad bit too matchy and you want to look casually glam, not meticulously-planned-glam.
I’ve never been a fan of dragons, they’re not cute – but they’re fierce and so are the Ed Hardy ‘Crystal Dragon’ Oversized Sunglasses from Nordstrom ($250.00). I’m not the kind of girl who ever wants to get a tattoo (please – I can’t decide on one pair of shoes to wear for an entire day, and you want me to decide on one tattoo to sport for the rest of my life?) but I can commit to these tattoo-inspired frames. And the fact that they have swarovski crystals is an added bonus, since well – I like to catch the light.
Stay tuned because I plan to talk more about sunglasses, especially the bright color trend.
