Two of my biggest weaknesses are sunglasses and vintage jewelry, both of which I am always on the hunt for! I have been wearing these Chloé and Gucci frames on repeat this summer... They are each the perfect compliment to golden and pearled vintage jewels.
Celine is my go-to sunglasses brand of choice, I love the chunky acetate frames and the classically retro silhouettes. I'll even admit I own the same style is multiple colors just because I love them so much! See how I styled my Marta frames in white here, here and here, Cat Eye in black here and here, Cat Eye in transparent pink here and here, Papillon frames in black here.
Up next for my next Ditto subscription: the retro-esque round Miu Miu frames in tortoise. I love the 60's vibe these iconic sunnies have, while still keeping it feminine and fresh with the delicate gold hardware. One of my favorite things about Miu Miu's sunglasses is the plush pink velvet case they always come with! Ditto carries many of my favorite sunglasses designers like Prada, Illesteva and so many more classic brands. I will be sharing each new pair of sunglasses I try out, so check back in to see which ones I pick! For a free month on me use code: EAEMILEEANNE at checkout!
As my eyewear collection grows, I can't help but think of a very special pair that inspire me still today. I had a small collection of the classics... including a couple pairs of Ray Bans and a few vintage sunglasses that I had found at various thrift shops. I had just graduated from Parsons... I was finding my way in the industry as a designer and decided to reward myself with a very special, very unique pair of sunnies. These enamel floral embellished sunglasses from Prada were my first high-end designer gift to myself. I normally only splurge on vintage or consignment, but this pair was just too beautiful to pass up. Such a sentimental pair for so many reasons.
