The Perfect Cat Eye Frames

Hello skidderoos! It’s the frikkin weekend!!

Aside from beauty products, one of the things I tend to hoard are sunglasses. I’m quite addicted to them – over sized, aviators, wayfarer-esque – I’m sure I have ’em all. I buy them everywhere and anywhere from the vendors on the street to F21 and Zara. It’s a rather annoying habit but I’m convinced to find a pair that I absolutely love. More specifically- I’ve been on the hunt for the greatest cat eye sunnies your eyes have ever laid on for just about a year and a half. Technically it’s been since I was 12 and first watched Breakfast at Tiffany’s – but who’s being nit picky here?

There was the Tom Ford “Anouk” but at the time of its release, I was but a poor college student. Weeping silently, I’ve chugged along searching. Until about February when I spotted one of my sartorial heroines, Nicole Richie, sporting a wicked pair. Naturally it led to many nights of a deep and fruitful relationship with Google. I later learned it was the “Chelsea” from her very own line, House of Harlow 1960.

Paging Captain Obvious.

After much debate, I finally pre-ordered them a month and a half ago on Revolve Clothing. And forgot. Until I spotted a bit of cash missing from my bank account, received a shipping confirmation and voila! The shades appeared on my front door within a week and I’m sure I haven’t taken them off since.

No seriously. I’m wearing them as we speak. #love

    My mom bought an awesome pair of Ray Ban Cat Eye style sunglasses back in the 80’s. I’m now wearing it… It gives off such a cool vintage chic. :)
