They're supposed to be the LBD of eyewear. Classic. Timeless. A classic style for everyone.
But I serious look like a deranged psychopath in them.
I don't own a pair. Seriously, I wouldn't unleash that on the world. But I thought about buying some today. I am need of new sunglasses. My beloved cheap Wal-Mart sunglasses are getting too embarrassing to wear. A couple of the rhinestones have fallen out (yep, I said rhinestones) and tortoise-shell finish (these glasses are classy, I tell ya) is flaking off the plastic frames, often leaving little black flecks on the bridge of my nose that I am unaware of.
I thought I would look into Aviators. They are super sophisticated on celebs like Jen and Jess.
But alas, when I don the fashion, I look like I should be doing time.
Have you ever run into that? A fashion that you just can't pull off?
Also, on my shopping trip, I got to thinking about brand snobbery. I mean, brand loyalty. What brands do you have to have? What things are you willing to go generic on to save a few bucks?
Here are things I cannot in good faith compromise on:
But I could care less about:
hand soap (especially if I transfer it to a cute bottle)
off-brand Crystal Light drink mixes (I actually prefer the generic brand - it dissolves better)
What are yours?
