In other words, my favorite luxe mama accessory. Covers it alllll up! I was just emailing with a friend who was asking my advice on some new sunglasses and here are three of my top sunglass brand and style recommendations right now:
1) Kate Spade: I have three pairs of Kate Spade sunglasses. I think they are a great value for the price – they are superstylish, not too young looking, and some come with polarized lenses. I’m into the cat-eye look lately and bought this pair of tortoise lenses with pale pink arms. I get compliments on them all the time.
2) Tory Burch: I’ve been coveting these babies. Do I really need another cat-eye style? But these are in this dreamy translucent honey-colored frame. Just gorgeous.
3) Westward Leaning: I tried these on at an awesome boutique in Piedmont called McMullen (that’s me at the top of the page wearing them). Check it out if you are in the Bay Area. I learned that Westward Leaning has only one design of glasses and that it is supposed to flatter every face. I haven’t bought a pair yet, but they are on my wish list. I tried on a pair of muted/matte black frames that I liked, and these redwood frames are cool and sexy as all get-out. I also love that this style is called the Children of California.
4) And for all the luxe dads out there, Brian has a new pair of gorgeous Ray-Bans that are flattering on him. He has a huge head, a huge huge head, and most sunglasses end up looking like swimming goggles on him. We stopped in a shop while in Laguna Beach last year and these were suggested by the sales guy. I think they are very unisex – just be sure your face can handle such a large style.
