Aviator Shades

Having unconsciously lost my huge black BCBG shades some time during the quarter (I seriously do not know when. One day I was looking for my shades and they were GONE. Not to be found anywhere) I was naturally very upset. I've only had it for a few months! But maybe the loss of my huge black shades was a sign that I should move onto other styles of shades (I also have a pair of huge white shades).




Because, surprisingly, I ended up with the latest pair of Dior aviator shades. Its not exactly like this one, the glass on mine is two pieces, not one. But its close enought. I've never considered TRYING let alone BUYING a pair of aviator shades before. But the salesperson insisted and so I did. And lo and behold, I looked GOOD. The effect is different from a pair of huge shades, more. . . aviator period (whichever decade that was) and old hollywood-ish. Remember that movie Aviator with Leo in it?-THAT period of glam.



And it seems that our friends Marc and Karl agrees with John, judging from the latest shades from Marc Jacobs and Chanel above.



YSL and Fendi also make some great aviator shades. I love the purple of the YSL one, it makes it that much more feminine.

Other choices include Oliver Peoples and this $14 pair from Urban Outfitters on the right. Its about time we moved onto something new. The mystique huge shades are starting to get old.

Oh ya - aviators have been in for quite a while now. I got mine 2 years ago for only $30!

I think they'll be IN for a long time

hi girls :) i think aviator shades will always be a classic and if they suit your face type you can always wear them and look really cool. but i disagree about them been trendy this season (they were huge last season though). i think this summer is more about the 60's vibe and shades à la willy wonka (like we've seen in luella).

I saw Barney Girl's pair of Dior aviators today, and they are fabulous! Maybe this will the thing to pull us away from huge shades.

The 'Aviator' period was the 40s ;)

They look terrible on me. It's the one style of shades I simply can't wear. I'll stick to my Jackie O's!

I think aviator shapes are so flattering on most people. They give a glamourous edgy look so easily!

For me, $25 Raybans would be enough.

Aviators look great on most people, and when were they ever out of style? Allthough real aviators are only to get at gas stations and similar places. No use spending alot of money on them, cause the cheap ones gives the right style.

Actually 'anonymous', Unconsciously can mean 'unintentionally' or to do something without realising.

And it's you're not your, since you're being pedantic.

Though Breitling Watch are duplicated and not created by original manufacturers, they do not mean that they are of inferior quality. Navitimer Watches are very close to the original models. 95% of the times they can not be noticeable, not even to the most experienced jeweler at first glance. These Navitimer World will last many years if you make sure that you offer Montbrillant Datora the proper care and treatment.


But the HUNTER recorders are the latest and any day is a better technology than the VCR's.
There are many kinds of HUNTER DVD available in the market. The price range for the same would differ depending upon the model, the feature and the technology in a recorder in question. The one with the latest features and the latest technology would be expensive than the others. Though, HUNTER DVD COLLECTION recorders are easy to use. But as the numbers of features keep on increases, the recording feature remains the same, but in case someone needs to enhance the quality or needs to use the other features - this might not be the simplest device to operate.


Besides that, these Hogan all come along with an additional strap across the side of the Hogan scarpe uomo . This is to further enhance the outlook appearance as well as the design of the shoes and to make Hogan uomo more stand out among other types of shoes. Furthermore, these side straps are all printed with the words Hogan scarpe donna to portray the brand name and to prove the authentic of the shoes.

Aviator shades never go out of style. People wear them since the early 90's, and today, celebrities and rock stars are still fond of them, especially the mirror glasses. They became the trademark of superstars from John Lennon to Akon. Aviator shades are here to stay.

I personally like aviators. Aviator shades have this kind of effect of making anyone who wears it look really good. I think you made a good choice buying one. And yours, I think, has a very feminine touch to it by the softness of the color of the lenses which is just fabulous.
