Spare the bank, spoil the eyes

To kick off the week, I thought I’d show a couple of gorgeous sunglass options – both styles for under $100.

These super-chic Marc by Marc Jacobs shades ($98) are a great way to add a splash of style to your summer.  Choose chocolate frames with goldtone arms or go for the black and silver combination.

Or if you’re looking to add a little pop of color, try these MICHAEL Michael Kors aviators ($95).  These are cute and playful – perfect for summer!

What I’m wearing – Lazy Sunday afternoon

So, I probably won’t do this often but I sometimes get questions from friends along the lines of “What do you wear when you —– ?” or “How would you dress for —- ?”.  So, on Sunday, the husband and I were hanging out on the front porch at Brooklyn Heights on Glenwood South and I got to playing around with the iPhone camera.  I took a couple of photos of what I was wearing, figuring I could angle a post out of it…

Here you have it – my ideal outfit for a lazy Sunday afternoon of drinking bloody marys and reading.

Bag – Kooba; Sandals – LK Bennett (London); Pedicure – OPI Strawberry Margarita; Maxi dress – Target

Here comes the sun

I have had the same pair of black Prada sunglasses for about three years now and boy have they served me well. Too well. They seem to be nearly indestructible. They have been dropped directly onto the cobblestone pavement of roughly 87 European cities (and Tokyo). I’ve sat on them. I’ve stepped on them. I’ve accidentally popped the lenses out more times than I can count. I’ve shoved them mercilessly into various handbags, backpacks, suitcases, glove compartments, airport security bins and shopping bags. Yet they remain unscathed and unscratched. How? Personally, I’m beginning to wonder if Prada’s eye wear license holder doesn’t construct the frames and lenses out of some crazy space-age material purchased in bulk from NASA.

But I’ll show you what’s on my shopping list the minute my faithful Pradas go on to that great duty free shop in the sky…

I have always wanted a pair of aviator-inspired shades and I think these by Louis Vuitton ($450) are just about perfect. Is it too early to start a Christmas list?
