How was everyone’s Christmas?? We had a lovely time up on the mountain at my Dad’s with my family. We built toys and baked cookies and watched two little red-headed monsters (my nephews) rip through a sea of wrapping paper and bows.
There are a few star things that I found out about from Christmas time, and a few gifts I want to show off—so check back tomorrow. (Tumblr issues with uploading photos…geez!)
But today, I want to talk about the importance of a great pair of sunglasses. Note: I am perpetually annoyed by people calling them “sunnies.” I’ve tried to do it; just doesn’t work. They’re sunglasses. Forevermore.
Anyway, I’ve been a classic Ray Ban girl for YEARS. Even though I collect vintage glasses/sunglasses. There’s just something timeless about a black or tortoise shell Wayfarer or an old pair of Aviators. And the comfort factor of Ray Bans cannot be beat. This is a major reason I cannot go back to cheap and cute sunglasses from drugstores/boutiques.
But there are times that I want a more signature shape of sunglasses, even though I would say people identify me with my Wayfarers after three years of nonstop wear. Sometimes I want something a liiiiittle more exaggerated, a little more bold, but still with the classic appeal of my signature style.
Here are a few amazing sunglasses that have this exaggerated classicism that I think is becoming a major style statement, not just in accessories but in the wardrobes of many with exaggerated pieces like new takes of Fair Isles, absurd and lovely blanket coats, plaids gone wild, and more. Of course, everyone has a different take on what constitutes the classics…more to come, for sure.
Now, the glasses.
