need new sunglasses
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.
