What’s a girl to do without a sassy pair of sunglasses, seriously? Personally, I believe the 60’s were the pinnacle of foxy statement glasses… John Lennon’s inspiring circle frames, the CAT EYE! I don’t know about you but grabbing a pair of interesting sunglasses is a great way to avoid wearing makeup. They bring contrast and charm to your face without the whole shaky eyeliner and mediocre eye shadow ordeal every morning. In many cases, they make you look better by proportioning your face beautifully.
Spitfire, an enterprising brand, that designs glorious sunglasses, headphones, and MP3 players. You could say this brand is the epitome of hipster, but what is hipster anyway? Their MP3 players are designed to look like old cassette tapes, the over the ear headphones are archaically designed, and the eye frames are retro inspired with a contemporary twist. Their collection corresponds amiably with the dynamic designs seen on runways across the world.
I just bought my first pair of Spitfire frames on shopwasteland and to be honest I was blown away by the quality. I wasn’t expecting a sturdy frame for the price I had paid. The catty frame features rose-gold hardware on the top half and an acrylic lower frame. The green lens (100% UV protection) does a substantial job protecting my eyes. These glasses are my new obsession, they add statement and class to any styled outfit complementing my face shape nicely (perfect for round faces).
also, if you have any extra time you should check out this really cool short film series by Free People! I’m quite a big fan of their collections and their lookbooks inspire me significantly.
