roundish fetish.

due to year-round warm weather,
sunglasses are an integral part of my wardrobe.
while i used to splurge on pairs from gucci, fendi, and valentino, i was also famous for losing them. i'd leave them at the beach, on the airplane, and in dressing rooms. the minis also love to break play with them...folding and bending them in ways they are not supposed to be folded and bended. while i still occassionally splurge on a pair, i have learned that ones from the $20 kiosk, target, and surf stores are just as good. plus, i can indulge in several pairs at a time.

in the past, i avoided round sunglasses like the plague...
(i know, a totally cliche cliche...but i've lost all creativity today.)
...for fear of looking john lennon-ish.
(although, he rocked them.)
recently, though, i was determined to find a pair that suited me.
these mossimo ones from target are the perfect shape. the lenses are round, but the frame is slightly squarish...
if that makes any sense.

next style i'm hoping to acquire is the classic wayfarers. 

(marla shirt, available at oomph; gucci bag (similar);
sunglasses, mossimo (similar) (similar))

  1. OOH! Love the Gucci fanny pack! I've been wanting one becaue they're so handy. The only way one can get away with one of those is if it's designer... or you're carrying your pistol in it!

  7. How did you lose your designer shades??? I upgraded to see if I could keep my shades in good condition :) Anyways, I think you look fantastic in round shades and sometimes the things we are most convinced that won't work on us actually do..I never thought I'd find myself wearing yellow and orange...oh do I wear those colours now!

  21. I really need new sunglasses. I've managed to consecutively buy the same pair twice, when I scratched up the first ones, but now this pair is broken AND scratched up... and I am still wearing them somehow. I just can't find any that I like on my face, I am way too picky... These look awesome on you, but any sunglasses you wear look great, I wish it were the same for me.

  22. Love this look, I want that bag. XOXO

    ReplyDelete
  23. How is that you manage to make a fanny pack look cool??? Maybe because it's Gucci... Or maybe because you're just that cool. lol I don't know, but you look great!!

    I'm the same way with sunglasses! I've owned a few really nice pair here and there and I ALWAYS lose them somewhere. Now it's Target shades for me. =)

  24. These sunglasses look great on you! I think that the wayfarers will look good as well. I'm thinking of buying them too. I recently tried them on and I couldn't believe they look so good on me.

    ReplyDelete
  25. you really rocked those!!! i'm craving a new pair of sunglasses<3 my face is really small and i have a small nose too.. which style do you suggest? i have a pair of Electric that are TOO big for me, but i love to feel protected and to cover my eyes really well when i have puffy eyes :/

    happy week dear,

  26. I OH so love sunnies. I used to be obsessed with them-- I'd buy so many pairs and then break a ton of them. GAH! and it's not like I try to break them!

    then, one fateful day, I found out that I HAD to wear glasses. :( so now, I have to find the perfect pair of prescription sunnies. It sucks because I now HAVE to shell out tons of moneys just for a pair :(

  28. Pretty style and confy outfit.
    You look fantastic there.

    Have a nice weekend.
    See you :)

  29. I used to do the same. Would only wear brand name and designer sunglasses. I actually did not loose them but it limits your purchases when you shell out couple hundered a pair. Now I enjoy buying funky shapes and designs and not worrying about them is the best. Especially in the pool or the beach.
    I love this black white and brown combo. The converses just make it sooo cool.

  44. I'm eyeing for shades but can't go thru cause my eyes have a grade so I'm wearing eyeglasses most of the time.Like you it was torn by my little kid so need a replacement asap:( Nice Gucci belt bag.:)

  45. I love your accessories, that ring rocks.

  46. oomph, darling! You are the only person I know who can pull off a fanny pack with such panache! You look like a super model while I'd look like my grandma. What the??
    My sunglasses share the same disastrous end as yours and so I always buy the cheaper variety. At hundreds of dollars a pair it doesn't take long to learn that lesson does it? Just purchased a fab pair on sale at Old Navy for $6. Love 'em and am digging yours, too. xoxo

  47. love the white and black combination look, looks good on you!

  48. These round glasses look great! I love that it's predominantly round but tweaks on the side so it also has a bit of a cat-eye feel. I'm a cheap-o when it comes to sunglasses. I want to try on different styles so I'm not allowed to splurge on them

    ReplyDelete
  49. These glasses really fit your face well! I am one of those people who have to buy the super expensive shades, but I am lucky enough to have never lost a pair. (Knock on wood.) Mr. A, on the other hand, should never, ever own a pair of designer sunglasses. NEVER.

  51. I think that shape is very flattering to you. I get the roundish squarish observation. Hey, by the way, you were totally fight. i should've done a before/after with my skirt in my last post. I was going, "WAAAH," in my shop after I realized the magic moment was past. Next though, boy...talk soon.
