Chic in Shades

I wanted to buy myself a new pair of sunglasses before my trip but ran out of time. I have a pair of Tom Ford gold aviator sunglasses that still look good but I feel like it’s time for a change.  I have been debating on a pair of large Jackie O style shades or the new cat eye style.  There are so many chic sunglasses on the people in this post that I now want to buy one of everything!  Enjoy!

    I need a new pair – Marc by Marc Jacobs have a few that I really like. Very much like those of 5th photo.
    Great picks!

    I cannot wait for be to be sunny enough in Vancouver to warrant wearing sunglasses! It’s a little luxury that I sincerely miss since moving here.

    I love my tortoise shell Ray Bans. A true classic.

    I have a copy of Jackie Kennedy sunglasses from the shopping channel, if you can find a pair you will love them.
    (John Kennedy started the company and now Caroline Kennedy runs it, the copies of her mothers jewellery, purses etc are wonderful)

    ugh – I’ve been looking for new sunglasses and was already feeling overwhelmed. . . now I’m going to be more crippled than ever in my decision making due to so many lovely options!

    I like the look of the ones on Catherine Deneuve in Manon 70 the best. I am into browns at the moment.

    I’m obsessed with my new Celine shades. Now I just need some bloody sun to go with. Check out The Row shades at Barney’s. I think you will like them.

    Oh my, I love this post. I love wearing sunglasses. I wish I had access to all these styles to try on.
    I will be going sunglass shopping next week while in Vegas.

    Very fun post.

    I have some very BIg glasses like these in off white and get many compliments on them. It makes them hard to part with, but I now have a few scratches so I need to find replacements. Thanks for the inspiration as usual.
