Fun with Sunglasses

When I was growing up, it seemed as if sunglasses were only for summer (or maybe it was just that I wore glasses from the time I was six-years-old, so sunglasses were a problem. No one that I knew had prescription sunglasses, especially not kids.

But it's a different world now. We know the importance of protecting our eyes and the dangers of sun exposure, so sunglasses are big business. Since I gave up contacts (alas, my eyes don't tear enough), I'm relegated either to prescription lenses or the ones that slip over your regular eyeglasses (those have come a long way, too, from the old ones with the unattractive (and large) clip that hit right between your eyes. Still, I'd love to be able to afford to change my sunglasses whenever I like There are so many fun styles these days! Here's a sample of some of the more...interesting ones. (Note: none of these would fall into the cheap sunglasses category. Those are also fun though, aren't they)?

from Versace

from Alexander McQueen

What I like best about sunglasses is the mystery aspect. No one quite knows what you're thinking behind those dark glasses. They're almost like a costume. Besides, everyone looks good in sunglasses!
