The Bigger, The Better

The first pair of sunglasses I ever splurged on were a pair of Guess acetate frames in tortoise shell with brown lenses. I was 13 and, at the time, it not only was the most money I had ever spent on one item but a fashion forward item no less (the lenses were oversized). I wore my beloved sunglasses everywhere and from here was born my fetish of sunglasses (and I mean "fetish" in a non creepy way). 
Over the years, designers have continued to increase the size of their frames. So much so, that any lens smaller than a fists size seems somewhat inadequate. And I couldn't be happier. Yes, sunglasses protect your eyes from the suns harmful UV Rays (always be certain before purchasing that you are getting UV protection!) however, there are other benefits of sunglasses as well. For example...

1. Want to make your favourite dress from last season current? Sunglasses.
2. Don't want to wear makeup for your morning coffee date? Sunglasses.
3. Didn't get your 7-8 hours of beauty sleep last night? Sunglasses.
4. Want to check out that cute guy walking past you without your boyfriend noticing? Sunglasses. (*Disclaimer*: make sure you have dark lenses!) 

While choosing a pair of sunglasses is about as easy as finding a pair of jeans that make your butt look great, take a look at these, these, and these if not to purchase, at the very least to swoon over.

In conclusion, fashion girlies, when it comes to sunglasses, the bigger, the better....in my eyes anyhow.

☮ peace and fashion
