Happy national Sunglasses Day! At this point, I wouldn’t just say that sunglasses are my favorite accessory. It’s safe to say that I am a collector. I think of sunglasses are practical, wearable art. They protect our peepers from harmful UV rays, which contribute to a number of degenerative eye diseases and crows feet. My mother told me this from an early age, so I began wearing John Lennon style frames, then moved to cat eyes, then aviators, and I’d say my frame of choice these days would be all of the above as oversized as I can get ’em. Gucci is currently crushing the game; I almost cried when I tried these on at Saks the other day because I just can’t spend over a G on a pair of sunglasses. ANYWAY, I thought I’d commemorate the day by sharing the five pairs I can’t stop wearing right now and a couple I keep on heavy rotation always. One of my absolute favorite pairs is actually under $80 at an outlet site and I actually considered buying a third YES THIRD PAIR. I have a backup. I know. It’s a sickness. In my defense, it’s really only because I left them in a coat pocket, forgot they were there, freaked out and replaced them.
