Sunglasses

Are you familiar with these futuristic-looking sunglasses by Dior? The “So Real” shades have admittedly stolen the thunder from Dior’s “Technologic” sunglasses last year because both models were released around the same time, but now that I actually had the chance to try the “So Real” sunnies on myself, I’m kind of over them because they didn’t suit my face as much as I hoped they would. I did like the architectural concept of the “So Real” however and that’s where the “Technologic” sunglasses come in because they’re like the grown-up and sophisticated sister of the “So Real”, a modern and updated spin on the classic aviator silhouette. But “Made in Italy” or not, there’s no way I’d spend more than $500 on a pair of sunglasses. Sorry, Dior!

Budget Look – Cozy Meets Elegant by BP.

by Irina on November 5, 2015

Today I felt like doing a new budget look after seeing so many gorgeous (and budget-friendly) fall staple pieces by BP. at Nordstrom. I didn’t follow a predetermined concept on this one, but simply put together what I thought would look great together. And if you’re an avid reader of this blog, you will easily recognize a lot of designer inspiration in many of the pieces shown below. We have some Burberry, Chanel, Isabel Marant and Michael Kors inspirations going on in this look. So what do you think? Did I do a good job on this one? Can you see yourself wearing this outfit?

I love cat-eye sunglasses and I also love Tom Ford. So, here’s a vintage-style pair of sunnies created by Mr. Ford thats look like it came straight out the 50s! While I personally find the high pointed cat-eye shape a little too extreme to rock them myself (these kind of sunnies make my face look incredibly mean and grumpy), with the right styling and outfit I think these could make a bold yet classic statement, Mad Men style. Just look at how the celebs were rocking their Nikita sunglasses and you’ll see what I mean.

Real vs. Steal – Dior So Real Sunglasses

by Irina on October 12, 2015

Update: This post has been updated on October 12, 2015. Scroll down to see the new adds.

When it comes to setting fashion trends, Dior seems to be on quite a roll at the moment. First, we had the Mise En Dior craze and now we have everybody lusting after their uber-cool “So Real” sunglasses. Karen Walker and C√©line, move over! If we could crown one pair of shades the official sunglasses of 2015, it would definitely be Dior’s “So Real” frames. And even though these sunglasses are everything but affordable at $595, virtually every fashion influencer – from bloggers to fashion editors to supermodels to celebs (and let’s not forget about all the countless Instagram sightings) – has been spotted wearing these sunnies. They come in a wide range of great styles, but if I had to pick a “So Real” favorite it would probably be the crystal (clear)/silver version with the blue mirrored lenses (last one pictured below). But no matter how much hype is still to follow on these lovely shades, there’s no way I would lay down almost $600 on a pair of trendy sunglasses that’ll probably be so pass√© 6 months from now.

And of course, where there’s a trend, Jessica Buurman isn’t too far behind. Their “Lotia” sunglasses which come in 11 different styles are a great alternative to the pricey Dior So Real sunnies which cost between $35 or $39. Not the cheapest pair of sunglasses I’ve ever seen, but still way more affordable than the real deal.
