Sunglasses: Puurfect Pair


It always amazing how every summer I need a new pair of sunglasses. It took me forever to figure out how not to leave them on the table at a restaurant and to always and I mean always keep them in a case in my handbag to avoid any scratches. Now wearing the same pair all summer just seems boring.  Sunglasses are the perfect way to update your look. After seeing Scartlett Johannson wearing this amazing pair by Tom Ford I knew I had to find a pair of cat eye sunglasses.

I took a moment to think about how the cat eye sunglasses craze began and it brought me to one of my favorite movies featuring my favorite style icon, Audrey Hepburn. In the film, Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Audrey Hepburn plays Holly Golightly.  A single woman living in NYC who appears to be the ultimate party girl, who dresses the part in almost every scene. She wears these amazing pair of sunglasses that are big, yet has a cat eye look.

My search finally ended when I found this puurfect pair by Alexander McQueen. The two-tone gives it a bit of edge and the cat eye shape is modern and not over kill. What do you think about this pair? Would Holly Golightly wear these?  They also come in other colors.

  1. I absolutely love cat eye sunglasses. I bought this basic pair on my trip to singapore but, of course, they broke on the plain ride back to Seattle. So I bought a new pair from XXI and I wear them everyday now that I am in San Diego again. They are so elegant and feminine.
