Odd Shape Shades

As you all know, I simply adore large shades. Over the years, I think you've all heard me go on about big black shades, big brown shades and big aviator shades- all the classics. So where does one move onto next when they've been through all the classics? Well, according to Prada, it is big odd shaped shades! I love them. They have all the essential elements of big black shades that make them classic (the big squarish over sized shape and the black plastic rims), while the slight irregularity gives it that oomph it needs to be refreshing and 'new.'
Speaking of new shapes, I also adore these circular shades from Chanel. I'm not sure if you can see, but there is a thin white lining that highlights the black rims (this highlight also comes in pink too, which is absolutely darling!). At first I wasn't sure about the shape of these shades. It slightly looked like those glasses that incredibly nerdy kids wear in cartoons. Or those toy shades that kids play with i.e. heart shaped shades anyone? But then I tried it on and they actually look fabulous! It has the whole over sized shades thing going on for it. The white/pink rimmed highlighting and the diamond pattern on the side makes it feminine and sophisticated. And the circular shape is just more modern and fun.

The only trade off is that these irregularly shaped shades were just not made to sit on the head as headbands really well. Oh well.

Its all well and good loving large shades but for some of us the shape of our face does not really permit us to wear them without looking hideous

I think I prefer to have the prada over chanel. But still,the style looks so old, yet still fashion to my eyes.

I have the Chanel ones.. I absolutely love them, but they aren't so appropriate if you're trying to dress up, so it's better to have another pair if needed!

Good for you for loving the big shades! I definitely agree with you. They're fun, they're flattering, and they're an easy decoration. Now I'm absolutely in love with that Prada pair.

By the way - you said the Chanel originally struck you as looking like those kids' heart-shaped glasses? Check this out:
