Sun Blessed

by jennine on June 2, 2009

Sunglasses are a funny thing. Every year I go through a thing where I want a special pair, and more or less they go along the same lines… brown. Maybe I go for them so they can match my hair and eyes… the camouflage strategy, yep that always works.

I’ve been ogling these Bless sunglasses since I’ve seen them in the Azita shop when I was picking up some clothes for the Beautiful Dolls shoot. They have the wayfarer shape in a sense but I love the deco-esque detailing on the bridge and the half-mirror , which doesn’t appear on any of the photos, the top half  of the  lens is mirrored, the bottom half transparent.

Also, I have to say, the square foldy glasses, behind them, also cute, but with my cheeks, not so cute on me.

Future so bright

Now those are worth splashing out on. The deco detailing is really cool. I’d love to see more deco-inspired anything!

These are gorgeous. I’ve seen so many giant round glasses these days they remind me of flies.

i love the square frames. It screams, “i mean business!”

Indie…Bless is so cool, love a majority of their stuff.

Denise… I wish they’d bring more deco back…hopefully we’ll see more with all the 90’s revival, you know how popular deco was in the 90’s… ha!

I’ve been dying for a totally square pair. I haven’t made much of an effort to look though.

I actually went brown this year instead of black. I picked up the Zooey Deschanel Oliver Peoples ones in tortoise. They’re Wayfarer-ish, which is funny, because I’ve never really been a fan, but with a nice 60s twist to them.

OMG I love them!!!! Jennine, I wish they’d bring back more deco too! I’m never without my sunglasses and own about 30….definitely want to add these to my collection!
