I Stole This From Oprah

everyday_sunnies_2014

Years ago, maybe even before Youtube and the ever popular “What’s In My Bag?” videos, on an episode of The Oprah Winfrey Show, Oprah showed the contents of her purse. It was so epic to me, because she definitely carried her entire life in her purse, which also included the Maya Angelou’s daily itinerary. Hmm.

However, the one thing that Oprah carried in her purse that stuck with me is that she always carries 2 pair of sunglasses in her purse: a brown pair and a black pair. Therefore, no matter what she wears, one of the pair will work. Genius. So, since then, I’ve always carried a brown pair and black pair of sunglasses in my purse or my car…just like Oprah. Yep, I guess you can say I stole here idea.

My current brown shades are a classic pair of Ray Ban aviators, but with a sheer gold lens and frames. Love them, because they are slightly large, which makes them perfect for my round face. Yes, if you have a round face, there aviators for your face.

My black pair are a new addition to my life. A couple of months ago, while at the farmer’s market, I lost my beloved and kinda pricey pair of Super flat top and have been on the hunt for a new pair of simple and all black sunglasses. I was stalking the Celine Audrey sunglasses and was about to go ahead and invest (read: reason to buy something expensive) and buy them, but then I found an incredible and well-made knockoff at Target. Needless to say, I came to my senses and paid $17 for these shades and I love them.

So…thanks, Oprah!

Ray-Ban Folding Aviators

I need a new pair of sunglasses and I would love for them to be a pair of Rayban aviators. However, my ROUND face is just not suitable for the sleek and curvy shape of aviators. How unfortunate. However, all of you with heart shape, oblong, or even square who can pull off aviators style glasses my like to know that Rayban now offers their iconic aviators foldable. Yes, just like their iconic and legendary wayfarer glasses, Rayban decided to make their aviators available in the folding style, too. So, the with¬† new folding style and the classic and chic case, the chances of you breaking these have dramatically declined, don’t you think?

Aviators that work for round faces?!


I love the classic and chic look of aviators. I’ve always wanted a pair, but I haven’t really found a pair that complimented my round face. So, my round face and I stick to large round shades, which I do love! However, I just spotted these large round aviator by Ray-Ban and think my sunglasses collection is about to add a new pair of aviators to the fam. They are also available in white, but the tortoise tickles my fancy!
