10th Commandment: June 10

Jun 10, 2013

By far and away, aviator sunglasses are my favorite.  They flatter most face shapes, and they’re nice and light.  I also like them because aviators fit into your wardrobe regardless of whether your style is preppy, glamorous or casual.

    I totally agree! And it’s true for both men and women. I had a guy friend once tell me that he thought he’d look dumb in them, and I was like “are you kidding me?” Then he put some on and looked like a total bad ass. Aviators ftw.

      Haha, I was the same way. I didn’t think I could pull them off but my BFF handed me a pair and said “Wear these. Would I ever lie to you?” So I went with her recommendation and have liked them ever since. I’m really picky about the lens shape though.

    How do you pick out a color for sunglasses? Especially if you’re cheap like me and only want to buy one pair for summer.

    • Belle says:

      Well, I thing black is too severe on most people. So if you want resin, I think brown is best. If you’re talking about aviators, I say go with a classic and choose the dark grey or dark brown lenses. Save the blue gradient or greenish color for someone else.

This winter was particularly hard on my psyche, on my self-esteem, and on my waistline. As we move into spring, I need to make a plan for how I am going to dress this additional weight over the months of work that it will likely take to shed it. So I was so glad to […]
