Retro Perspective

by jennine on March 15, 2010

Daylight savings time happened over the weekend. It was a pain in the arse to adjust to the lost hour, but dang…it stays light out so much later! Better start accumulating sunglasses, because I tell you the sun seems so much brighter these days.

Lounging on our new sofa last night, my husband and I spent some quality time together after a week apart. Talking about something, he said, ‘In retrosperspective…‘ Heh, English is not his first language, so he can say that and it’s super cute. What is retro-perspective? Paper 3-D glasses in drive through cinemas? Technicolor? Looking at the modern world through modernist eyes? Retro Super Future makes Italian sunglasses with Zeiss lenses. They used to specialize in the Wayfarer shades in bright colors, but lately they’ve branched out into more sophisticated, yet still playful frames. I’m really liking the Lucia, which has a nice twist of the circular lens, so hard for me to really pull off, the frames, both nerdy and kind of chic.

Ok, so I got a pair of sunglasses just a few weeks ago, but a girl can look, can’t she?

Share and Enjoy:

They make it sooooo hard to shop for these!!! I don’t even know if they’re priced low enough for me to hope or go to Miami to hunt.

I really hate daylight Savings time. HATE. Oh, the torture!
I do love sunglasses, and like most things, I think a girl can never have too many. =)
