All about the Shades

Sunglasses are a fabulous style accessory and my favorite. I have been accustomed to wearing them since I had LASIK eye surgery years ago. I used to wear a pair only on sunny days until I heard that even on overcast days your eyes can be damaged by the powerful UV rays. Now, if I am outdoors, I always have my shades on as you will see in my photos.

Recently I took advantage of a special offer at Bloomingdales and got these Tory Burch sunglasses for just $115. I like the butterfly shape and the discreet “T” detail on the hinges. Now, my search starts for a new style, maybe a round or cat-eye pair…

At the beginning of the year I was passing by a Banana Republic store in my neighborhood and entered without looking for anything specific. I found this black dress on sale and with an additional discount I enjoyed a great bargain! The sheer detail on the top is what caught my attention and made this dress one of my preferred LBDs. I am not wearing a necklace in order to draw attention to this detail of the dress.  I accessorized my outfit with this simple clutch (on sale now!), classic black sandals, and a statement, multi-chain bracelet.

Below you can find some sunglasses that I am planning to try on and other black dresses that I like.

Thank you very much for reading!
