The Season for Sunglasses is here at last!
Ever since LASIK, I have been obsessed with sunglasses the way others are with shoes. I once saw a picture of Elton John’s sunglass closet (which was the size of our first starter home,) and I thought, “Hmmmm…this is probably what Heaven looks like.”
I love, love, love sunglasses.
I can’t really bother with the inexpensive shades, not because I’m a snob – nor trying to be, but because without fail, I will lose, sit and break the ones I score on sale. The ones that ost me a small car payment? I’ll protect the those ones like a newborn baby. I’ve also convinced myself that by “collecting” sunglasses, I am investing and protecting my vision. Just humor me, please. And it’s not like I live somewhere it rains 90% of the time. I live in Southern California where it’s so bright, that I walked into my daughter’s room today and left seeing spots.
It’s hard for me to pick favorites, but I’ll tell you a some of my observations since I think I own at least one (or two,) pairs of every designer brand imaginable. The best made IMO with the best protection are the experience I’ve had with Tom Ford eyewear. I wear them every single day, and they have held up beautiful. A brand that I’m still on the fence about? Dior. I have one pair that have been complete rockstars, and another that are so flimsy I still kick myself every time I go to take them out of the case. Oh, and another brand that really impressed me is by IVI Vision. Wow, totally stylish and made very, very well.
