I bet you don’t think about it often, but have you ever noticed when you’re in a certain mood that you listen to a certain kind of music? That is because the music evokes a certain feeling in you. We do that with other things too. When we are happy, we are confident and we look nicer than when we feel blue. What certain shades say about you…

Aviators: Aviators are a classic sunglasses style. Originally designed for our pilots in 1936 and put out there by…. You guessed it: Ray Ban! The Aviator became a well-known style of sunglasses when General Douglas MacArthur landed on the beach in the Philippines in World War II. Newspaper photographers snapped several pictures of him wearing them. This says two things to me: Fashion & Function. The person who loves Aviators is a grounded person, relaxed, but still stylish.

Cat Eye Glasses: Became popular in the 1950s and 1960s among fashionable women and are usually associated with the Beehive hair style (classy). Some lovers of the Cat Eye style: Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Hepburn and more recently, Lisa Loeb. As you can tell from that list of people who wear …

Here are some pointers to finding the perfect frames to accent your lovely locks!

Bodacious Blondes:  From pixie cut to Tangled hair, boys or girls, blondes look hot with contrasting light locks with black metal frames. For a very posh look, Tortoise shell and white frames will compliment your Blonde locks and for Blondes with darker skin tones, contrasting bright colors and prints will really make a statement.

Some things to keep in mind:

• Big white plastic frames look great whatever shade of blonde you are.

• When it comes to block colors, peroxide blondes can go for almost any palette with baby pinks and blues, reds and canary yellows.

• Natural or dark blondes should go for a more subtle look. Tortoiseshells and warm creams look premium, and gold metal frames keep things soft but strong.

Frames to try: Ray-Ban Cats 5000, Oakley Frogskins, DKNY DY4078B, and the Ralph Ra5126

Brainy Brunettes: You need bright, vibrant colors; this will add contrast when paired with a dark mane. Frames with tones of plum and maroon bring out blue and green eyes and Celtic skin tones, while olive skinned can easily work metallic frames. For a …

The sun is out and I love it. I am thinking Spring and I need new sunglasses of course.  I finally found the Wayfarer style that works best for me. Imagine the drum roll as the Ray-Ban RB4165 Sunglasses enters stage left.  For those of us with larger hat sizes these sunglasses are perfect. I have had trouble in the past finding a Wayfarer that looks good on me. Ray-Ban has heard my prayers and I am grateful. The particular pair that has tickled my fancy is the 853/5D-5416 described as the Rubber Gradient Blue/Transparent Frame with Gradient Brown Lenses in 54mm Lens Diameter. These lenses gradually goes from Brown to Blue and it’s so freaking spectacular. I tend to wear a lot of Blue so this is certainly meant to be. I can’t wait to saunter around downtown Chicago in my sweet shades. Thank you again Ray-Ban!

Although our glasses surely serve a purpose, aren’t they so much more than that? They are also an accessory that we boldly wear on our face, a statement that we make to the world that says “This is who I am”. So for all you artist, innovators, visionaries, and creators, this is for you. Selecting a frame is sometimes a difficult job. There are so many interesting frame designs, styles, and colors that are enticing. Here are a few that I have hand selected for you…

  Interesting design picks: The Roberto Cavalli RC0545, this is a full rimmed zyl frame with a very desirable, bold, swishing shape and it is offered in several beautiful colors. Diva Swarovski Crystals Eyeglasses 5265-765 would be an excellent choice for someone who is into natural beauty. This frame is an unusual rimless frame, so it won’t distract attention from the face, but the temple arms are nothing short of stunning. Cazal Eyeglasses 607 Black & Gold Frame is one of my favorite frames. It is bold & loud & says “Here I am world”. This is a huge, square, full zyl frame with gold accents. This frame is perfect or music artists …

Sun + Snow =’s Glare. Tis’ the time for Polarization! Polarized lenses contain a special filter that blocks a type of intense reflected light, reducing harsh glare. Anyone who enjoys skiing, biking, jogging, fishing, or any other outdoor activities will greatly benefit from having polarized lenses. Also people who are extremely light sensitive or those who have had cataract surgery would be great candidates for a polarized lens due to the fact that the polarized filter acts as a venetian blind for the lenses, making the lenses much darker.
