10th Commandment: January 26

Jan 26, 2010

Yesterday’s burst of sunshine had me reaching for my sunglasses.  If you love to keep your eyes healthy and look cool in a pair of aviators, then you are in luck because you’re still on trend.  But if you want to go the extra mile this season, the hottest trend in sunglasses is leather trimmed aviators.  While this trend hasn’t yet reached the intern level it certainly will soon enough.

Elected Official

Cutler and Gross Leather Trimmed Aviators (Net-a-Porter, $480)

 

Chloe Tamaris Aviators with red leather trim (Net-a-Porter, $295)

Kensie Esther Tortoise Shell Sunglasses (Nordstrom, $50)

Like I said, leather isn’t down in the lower price points yet, but it will be.

Also, for those of you who like inexpensive sunglasses, a health warning.  Some makers claim that there sunglasses block UVA/UVB rays, but they lie.  I would recommend not buying sunglasses at Forever 21, Target or the like  unless they are a brand you know and trust.

The reason for this warning is that when you put on cheap sunglasses they shade your eyes causing your pupils to open wide.  Then, because they don’t block UV, more of the dangerous rays get into your inner eye and cause damage.  If you weren’t wearing the sunglasses, you’d be squinting and your pupil would dilate to protect the eye.  In other words, cheap sunglasses are more dangerous than no sunglasses at all.

One of the hallmarks of being middle-aged is buying your clothing in the same place you buy your groceries. For some people it’s Costco, for others it’s Target, for me, it’s Amazon. Yesterday, I opened a box that contained a bag of dog treats, gummy candy, a tin of olive oil and a dress. So […]

How I Combat Stink (and Stress Sweat)

It’s happened to all of us: You’re walking into a meeting and you catch a whiff of something. A slight odor. A bad smell. And you wonder, “Is that me?” You want to surreptitiously check that that unsavory aroma isn’t you, but you can’t do that here. So you just keep your arms at your […]

The Range: Lounge/Travel Sets

If the pandemic did one thing for women, it brought back sweatpants as acceptable attire. But then, fashion decided that we couldn’t wear regular sweat pants, we needed to wear fancy sweat pants. And while it would be easy to disparage the ideal of luxury sweatpants made for chic, casual wear…have you felt how soft […]
