Here Comes The Sun, and Here Comes the Shades

Here Comes The Sun, and Here Comes the Style

My favorite sunglasses, my purple baroque frames by Prada

In case you have not heard, us So. Cal folks have been enjoying the beautiful sunshine these past couple days. Dear Mr. Sun, won’t you stay awhile? We have missed you oh so very much.

While, enjoying the sunshine means a variety of things for fashion, one of my favorite summer essentials are sunglasses. To be truthful, I don’t think I own one pair of actual, traditional black sunglasses. Everything I own is either dramatic frames in the shape of apples, cat eyes, hello kitty cat eyes, or dramatic baroque design a la’ Prada. Even my black Chanel sunglasses had a lace design on the frames.

Last summer I invested in one of the most classic, traditional glasses (by my collection’s standards anyways.) A pair of leather embellished Choloe’ aviators. And much to my surprise I loved them! Almost makes me want to invest in more classic looking glasses…almost. Side note and friendly word of advice for fellow consumers who also may have purchased this style, the screw that connects the leather to the glasses ALWAYS falls out. Working in retail, these are a pair of glasses that always seems to come with issues. Nothing that can’t be solved though. Any sunglass place should sell extra screws to solve this problem, or if you are like me and don’t have the patience to do this yourself, hold on to the card that comes in the sunglass case that shows certification of authenticity, and according to the manufacturer they will fix the problem.

Every summer, I bedazzle a new pair of sunglasses. I miss my cherry red ones that I gave to one of my besties, but she looks fab in them. Perhaps, I’ll bedazzle my favorite Apple rimmed glasses (literally these are in the shape of bright red apples.)

I bedazzled the bow on these heart shaped hello kitty frames.

Other must haves on my sunglass list are a floral pair of Dolce and Gabana’s, some House of Harlow cat eyes, white baroque Paradas, and maybe a black framed Chanel pair. If I’m going to finally do classic, what better way then to go Chanel. Ooo, and for days when I’m feeling a little crazy, Urban Outfitters has some really fun metal laced framed glasses.

Prada Baroque sunglasses, I want these in white.
