A Little Love In Your Shades
I confess that I have always gravitated toward funky shaped sunglasses. If I can ever find some pictures of myself from my teen years I will most definitely share. Not everyone is a fan of odd shaped eye wear but I always found them to be fun and its such a great way to add a little whimsy to your outfit. Not to mention that they are a fantastic statement piece.
Heart shaped eye wear has been around for quite some time. There's an old description of those who wear odd shaped glasses that I included in this post. I think its true. People who dare to wear uniquely shaped glasses or sunglasses express personality when they do so. They aren't just being cookie cutter or mainstream but stepping out of the usual and becoming unusual. I used to get teased by friends in high school for my eclectic taste in shades but fear not, it never stopped me from wearing them. Til this day I still gravitate towards them.
Heart shaped sunglasses were made even more popular in the 1960's because of the scandalous book turned to film called Lolita (1962). Sue Lyon wore them in the film and they became a part of the iconic poster for the film as well.
I scored mine at Modcloth but thankfully you can find a pair of heart shaped sunglasses in all sorts of shops.
Have you ever worn heart shaped sunglasses? Do you find odd shaped eye wear to be a little too much fashion-wise?
