I Wear My Sunglasses at Night...

 If you previously followed I Live For It, you might have noticed my insane obsession with eyewear. I can never get enough. I treat my sunglasses as a key part of each outfit I wear. Let's just say I really never wear the same pair two days in a row. Ha! I have drawers full of sunglasses and I don't plan on stopping anytime soon! I used to collect Madame Alexander dolls as a kid... now I collect sunglasses. Hey, it could be worse, right? At least I'm not hoarding Hermes bags! ;) Check me out below wearing some of my favorite pairs. XO, Liza

Chanel Round Half Tint Sunglasses- Probably my all time favorite pair. I've debated selling these, as I have seen them on e-bay going for a grand, but I don't think I could go through with it! They are too amazing. You may have seen them on Nicole Richie or the Olsen twins.
Vintage YSL Sunglasses- Got these on e-bay for practically nothing! They are a bit Elton John esque, no? Hahaha! I do adore them though. I mostly wear them during the summer. They look perfect with a little sundress or my Grey Ant High Waisted Shorts and a unitard.
Anglo American Heart Sunglasses- Every girl should own a pair of heart shaped sunglasses in my opinion. They really spruce up an outfit, especially in bright red. 
Vintage Christian Dior Sunglasses- I actually found this gem of a pair at Barney's! They sell a line there called Retro Sun (http://www.retrosun.co.uk/) that consists of glasses from the 70's and 80's. Right up my alley! I've only had these for a few years, but I have honestly worn them to death. They look amazing with anything.
Karen Walker Jonestown Sunglasses- Karen Walker truly makes some of the best sunglasses out there. She has a TON of different designs, so it really makes it hard to choose, especially this season! The glasses are spectacular.
Illesteva Leonard Snake Acetate Sunglasses- Looooving Illesteva sunglasses at the moment. Not only are they reasonable compared to the typical pair of pricey designer glasses, but they are beyond chic! I am coveting at least two more pairs from the line.
Grey Ant Status Sunglasses- These sunglasses are almost a take on the Ray Ban Wayfarer, but times four! I don't wear these ones that often, but when I do, people are always complimenting me on the massive frames.
Vintage Ted Lapidus Sunglasses- Ahh Ted Lapidus... how I love you. The French fashion designer from the 1970's was known as the first to put military style shoulder straps on womens and mens clothing. Lapidus was also known for his whimsical massive sized sunglasses, which I guess you can say I am obsessed with. I have a tortoise pair as well, but the red ones are my fave. You can usually find Ted glasses on e-bay and other vintage sites.
Marc Jacobs Aviator Sunglasses- Probably one of my first pairs of nice sunglasses. These are great for lounging by the pool or beach, as I am doing right that in the picture!
Linda Farrow Vintage Sunglasses- I picked up these cat eye frames at Creatures of Comfort years ago. Who knew cat eye sunglasses would be the rage several seasons later? ;)

  13. Great sunglasses.
    I live in my sunglasses during the summer, I should really buy a second pair.
    But I find buying sunglasses very difficult for myself. I never know if they look good on me or not.
