A Little Retrospective

From 50's cat eye to 70's round sunglasses, we will be seeing all types of retro sunglasses this Spring.

When I was home over the Christmas holidays I found these pictures of my mom in her round oversized sunglasses from the early 1970's.  I like to describe them as her "Jackie O meets John Lennon" sunglasses.

Styles 'n Cream said...

I am dying for some cat eye glasses right now. Tory Burch and Chanel have some forgeous glasses. And Tom Ford is the best for oversize ones.

Chas said...

I love the cat eye look. I don't have a pair yet but I might just have to buy some and see if I can pull off the look!

Teodora said...

Cat eye look and Oversized are for me. When I think about it I used to wear the John Lennon type in high school - they had two parts - sunglasses and prescription glasses. I don't think I have the guts to do it now.

I think I would look ridiculous in the colored shades. I love big lenses and am pretty much willing to try anything after that! Fun :)
