Chloe Dionee Sunglasses

Unfortunately the retro style of Chloe’s new folding Dionee sunglasses ($358) don’t look good on my face, because I absolutely love the space-saving concept. Each of the shades fold down to fit into a cute petite, egg-shaped sunglasses case making them the ideal shades for anyone traveling or for those who favor small clutches/handbags. I … Continue reading “Chloe Dionee Sunglasses”

Bimba & Lola

I went to Madrid a few months ago to visit a friend who moved there for work. While the gorgeous city has got every designer brand you could think of (and many of them are conveniently close to the city’s major museums!), the best discovery I made while I was there was Bimba & Lola. … Continue reading “Bimba & Lola”

Jean-Charles de Castelbajac Lego Sunglasses

I recently wrote about the Ray Ban Colorize Kit and was indecisive about whether or not to get one. I’m glad I held off.

Emilio Pucci Crystal Embellished Sunglasses

Emilio Pucci Crystal Embellished Sunglasses While the iconic Pucci print has never been my thing, these Pucci sunglasses which retail for $860 are another story. The shape is fantastic – and I am digging the 50s/60s-esque crystal detail – a little geometric without being overkill, unlike most of those rather loud and obnoxious patterns that … Continue reading “Emilio Pucci Crystal Embellished Sunglasses”

Celeb Trend: Color Rimmed Sunglasses

  Come summer I live in my aviator Ray-Bans. Now, it seems that stars and street fashion folks seem to be all about Ray Bans as well — not the aviators, but the retro Wayfarer style. Everyone I know seems to have snatched-up the iconic style in one color or another (last spring Ray-Ban partnered … Continue reading “Celeb Trend: Color Rimmed Sunglasses”

Bottega Veneta 88S Sunglasses

If it weren’t for my $500 limit on sunglasses, these would be mine. Angelina Jolie was seen recently in a pair of Bottega Veneta plastic frame, boring ole sunglasses and everyone went ga-ga and those sold out everywhere. But you can easily get a pair similar to that for $20. These, however, are unique and … Continue reading “Bottega Veneta 88S Sunglasses”

Frugal Snob: Perfect Bubble Skirt for Summer

OK, I am totally behind on my movie watching but on my flight back from NY I finally saw Quantum of Solace. I didn’t even care that the movie made no sense because I was sucked in by the clothes worn by Olga Kurylenko. In the opening scene, she has on the perfect bubble skirt … Continue reading “Frugal Snob: Perfect Bubble Skirt for Summer”
