There's something about a big pair of sunglasses that makes women look mysterious. Or crazy. Or famous. Perhaps all of the above? Throw on a pair of big shades and, boom, you've instantly got a dramatic look. I was flipping through a fashion magazine this weekend and came across an article about the "right size of shades for your face." After matching my face to the scaled-down images on the page, it turned out I fell into an ambiguous, shapeless category that said I could wear whatever size and shape of sunglasses I wanted to. (I could have-would have worn whatever silly sunglasses I wanted to anyways, but now I've got a magazine condoning my choices). So I said to my five-head (kinda like a forehead, but bigger) "go on with your bad self."
A few things I'm excited about this month? Designer collaborations. Here are some links about exciting collab-o's. Almost as exciting as when Tim McGraw and Nelly paired up for a song that played on country and hip-hop stations.
• Banana Republic + Issa London (also known as the designer who made Kate Middleton's iconic engagement wrap dress).
• Target + Kate Young have paired up for a red carpet-inspired line that you can crash prom in or wear to a more age-appropriate cocktail party.
• Kohl's + Derek Lam have used Brazilian street art and beaches as muses for a breezy apparel collection.
