Confessions of a Sunglass-A-Holic
3 reasons why...
location: los angeles
If you don't know this about me I am obsessed with sunglasses! You can never have too many and that being said I own about 40 pairs and counting. I can never say no to a new pair of shades. With the amount of sunglasses I own I am constantly sneaking away to the sunglass section, trying on all different shapes and colors. Just recently in Vegas while waiting on friends I wandered off into a gift shop trying on a variety. I almost got a pair of Ray-Ban's but I told myself I didn't need them, walking away empty handed. Looks like I do have some self-control after all. Unlike most seasonal purchases, I wear all my sunglasses all year long. Each different sunglasses=a different mood. They are great for protecting my eyes or even better hiding my face when I am avoiding my ex at The Grove. Or when I'm starring at the nearest human attraction, but we'll call it people watching. Three reasons you should be obsessed with sunglasses too.
1) there is a shape for every face
I totally get it. Sometimes you just can't find the right sunglasses for your face. There's so many different shapes: Aviator, Wayfarer, Square, Round, Rectangle, Oversized, Cat-Eye & the list goes on. How do you decide? It can be overwhelming but depending your face shape you can find some shades that compliment your face. Talk has it that if you have a round face: wayfare or square. A square face: round. A heart shaped face: aviators. & consider yourself lucky if you have an oval face shape, as anything goes with this face shape. At the end of the day, you can pull off anything as long as you wear it with confidence. My life motto is: "Confidence gets you far in life."
2) protection from the sun
Sunglasses are more than decoration for the face, they protect your eyes from the sun. Sunglasses protect you from sun, snow, sand, dust & other enviromental polutions. When shopping for sunglases look for ones with 100% UVA & UVB protection. The eyes are very sensitive to sunlight and nearly 10% of skin cancers are found near the eyes so the bigger the better. That goes for a few things.
3) can upgrade any outfit & you dont have to break the bank
Whether I am wearing an up scale chic outfit or my favorite sweatsuit, throwing on sunglasses can add to my outfit in the fastest, simplest ways. With there being so many sunglass brands around these days you aren't limited to $500 designer shades. You don't have to splurge to get style and quality. Some of my favorie sunglass brands are: Le Specs & Quay.
