I Wear My Sunglasses at Night

Ray Ban

Not really.  But I’m seriously considering since I got the most awesome pair of shades ever.  By the way, I’m happy to have stuck that song in your head – it’s been in mine for a little over a day now.

I wear my sunglasses at night
so I can
so I can
watch you weave then breath your story lines.

Yep.  You’re welcome.

Anywho, the hubs teased me.  Because my awesome new rockin’ shades are aviators.  They’re classic.  And while I was on the fence about my new beloved Ray-Bans, I ignored the cons and went for it.  They have since become my favorite purchase this summer.  Right up there with my bermuda shorts.

(You have no idea how happy I am that stores make flattering shorts that are longer that 2″ from the crotch.  It’s nice.)

I used to think it took a certain face to pull off the aviator look.  I now realize anyone can pull it off.  They’re actually flattering [if they fit your face].  And this particular pair has the clearest, most crisp glass lenses.  Driving is better.  I know, that sounds weird but I kid you not – driving in these specs is quite cool.

A year or so ago, I purchase some $7 Walmart aviators to complete my Halloween costume (I was Axl Rose).  I liked them.  A lot.  And I’ve been running around in them for a year.  With their flaky gold frames, horribly plastic lenses that fog up at the blink of an eye and crooked nose-pieces.

But these Ray-Bans… they are aviators of the gods.  Never gonna give ’em up.  Never.

Wendi - So between the RayBans, the Corey Hart, and the almost Rick Astley references, I feel like it’s the 80’s. Promise me you not going to start rocking the Members Only and Bermuda Bag. Ok, maybe the Bermuda Bag isn’t so bad. But no MO jacket!

Brooke - I don’t really care for MO jackets. As for Rick Astley, I got nothing on him – Cake remade the song in 1996 if I’m not mistaken. I like the 80s – I was only a child and feel like I missed out on so many cool things. So I bring bits and pieces of it into my life. Like Ray-Bans. And Bon Jovi. Who I get o see live in less than a month!!!!!!!

Kimmi - These are sooo gorgeous! You are so lucky you can wear aviators… I’d die to be able to wear this shape- my face just won’t take it. :)

Brooke - @Kimmi – I think any can where them. Can I pull them off and look like a stud? No. But I wear them anyway. Because I like them. And because the lenses are pretty frickin spectacular. :)
