need new sunglasses

north by

i haven’t updated my sunglasses in at least 2 years.  i’ve found a ton i like online, but sunglasses are one of those things you want to buy in person, so you can awkwardly make “cool” faces in the tiny store mirror (that was a joke by the way).  i’m embarrassed to say i spent more than hour trying to find a new pair of sunglasses today.  i started by googling this picture.  cary grant’s tart optical “arnel” shades in north by northwest are thing of perfection.  sadly, i was too lazy to call the store to check the price, so i went to warby parker’s website and did the virtual try-on.  i soon discovered the virtual try-on looks a lot better for reading glasses, because every pair of sunglasses i tried on made me look like doc ock from spider-man.  my next stop was j.crew’s accessory section, but most of the shades were too ray-ban or too expensive.  i was running out of options until i remembered sid mashburn started carrying allyn scura sunglasses sometime last year.  score.  after a ton of back and forth between grey and dark tortoise, i settled on the gray beauts you see below.  i can’t wait to rock these at the beach this july 4th.  ladies, holla at me.

allyn scura grey
