Eye Spy

Room 907's Wayfarer Debate got me thinking about my next pair of stand-out sunnies. I still love my blue and cream wayfarers, but they've become a standard classic in my repertoire rather than a knock 'em dead pair of shades.

So what's next? My eyes spy something a little more round and circular. I also don't mind going a bit smaller, less glamourous and more intellectual and nerdy. Any one (or three) or these babies will do me just fine.

What about those gorgeous ones the Olsens were wearing? They'd look amazing on you, if you were ever able to track them down.

Ah, yes those Mary Kate oversized circular ones - I do still want those too!

Oh, I love all of these. I have my eyes on a new pair of sunnies as well, preferably a little larger than my current ones and with a rounder shape as well. Do share, once you've decided which ones to go for!

Wishing you a fabulous weekend by the way!

The first and third pair definitely have potential as classic everyday shades to compete with wayfarers, but I'm still scratching my head looking for something to replace black wayfarers as the go-anywhere, universal all-purpose eyewear statement. It's proving next tom impossible to replicate, like a favorite pair of jeans for my face!

Great post, and let the search continue! I feel this debate is more fun than settling it will ever be....

I still haven't decided yet - looks like most of you like Karen Walker or Chloe. I'm torn between Karen Walker and the first Lanvin pair, which has a very classic yet modern look to it. I'll let you all know if I decide to buy any of these (or something else!)

I heart those Chloe shades. They make such good vintage-inspired frames but you should check out Benjamin Eyewear too!
