So I was browsing yahoo and the top news story was Nicole Richie’s obsession with sunglasses. According to the story Richie admits to owning more than two hundred pairs of sunglasses! Now that’s crazy, but to each their own, I personally collect shoes, I probably have close to 60 pairs of shoes. Now mind you this is a collection I have started from my high school days and the speed of collection has slowed down, as has my lack of income. But I can’t imagine a closet full of over 200! I’d go nuts. I could wear a different pair every day for almost a whole year. Sorry I’ve lost focus, now back to sunglasses.
Anyways I was reading about her sunglass fetish and it got me thinking about graduation. I know what does that have anything to do with sunglasses, but I was thinking about how I always remember the grads walking down the field with really cute sunglasses. I have a pair of marc jacobs that I bought at Nordstroms three years ago that I love, and they are my go to pair but I want something fun for graduation. And when you think about it sunglasses are really the only way you can accessorize your cap and gown that people will notice. I think a lot of NDNU grads can agree that sunglasses are a definite necessity while waiting in the sun for nearly three hours to get your diploma.
So after a lot of web surfing i’ve found a few picks that I love and won’t break the bank.
Ray Ban small “classic wayfarer” online at Nordstroms $145. Now these are the most expensive pick on my list and they are really cute but after looking at the forever 21 glasses I’ve found some similar pairs and the prices can not be beat.
An 80’s inspired pair also $5.80 at Forever21.
And finally a pair of classic aviators also from Forever21 at $5.80. Compare it to the classic ray ban pair ($139) and see which ones you like better….or better yet if there is even that big of a difference between the two, besides the price.
One style of sunglasses that I strongly object to are the bug sunglasses. STOP hiding behind them they are not that cute and I’ve heard a lot of guys who strongly object to them as well so ladies do your self a favor and toss those awful things and grab a different pair.
