Question: What is the one thing that I buy each summer that I feel is necessary for my survival, but also never looks good on me (and basically causes me so much grief because of my constant state of buyer's remorse)?
Bonus: Said item is very expensive and without it I am unable to see. As in, I can't see anything at all.
Answer: Of course I'm talking about sunglasses, and am I alone here feeling like they are the one thing (other than hats which is an entirely different, and much longer post) that never look right?
It's like the story of the three bears, "this one is too blingy, this one is to big, this one is too cheap, and this one is too expensive." It's been a lifelong quest for me to find a pair that is "just right."
And then I found Joseph sunglasses. Specifically, these sunglasses. They are like the unicorn of shades. They fit perfectly, they aren't too big or too small, and they make me feel so chic (even with my geektastic prescriptions lenses in them) that I can't stop wearing them, nor can I stop taking pictures of myself in them. Why? Because damnit, I finally found a pair of sunglasses that I look good in.
Highlights of this summer now consist of a lack of buyer's remorse, a love of being in the sun, and the ability to see every hour of the day.
There are few material items that have changed the way I live my life, and I've got to say if there were ever a fire, my new prescription specs would be one of the first things I'd grab as I run out the door. If that's not a ringing endorsement I don't know what is. If you are looking for a pair of shades that are logo-less, trend-less, and look good on a head that is the size of a toddler's, look no further than Joseph's new sunglass collection. Xx
P.S. Blogging for me is like exercising. When I get out of the habit of posting, I have a hard time of getting back in. I was talking with a friend yesterday about a sense of malaise that I was feeling about going back to the US in a few weeks, and she suggested that I get back on the blog. I have to admit that I really miss posting here and I'm really committing to spending some more time doing so. For the last year I've really been focusing on growing the design side of my business but now that I'm nearing 40 (!!!) I'm looking forward to spending my time doing the things that really feed my soul. This blog is top on that list and it's my goal to make more time in my life for it moving forward. For those of you still reading, thanks for hanging on. This would be a lonely place with you!
