Weekend Round Up..What I Wore…Accessories all Areas…

I love accessories..I’ve often been accused of over accessorising..I tend to add too many pieces and I’m a repeat offender..But I Own It…

I find the bits that I like, layer them up..turn around in front of the mirror..and add some more..Not the advice that our mothers gave us growing up..but sometimes we have to bend the rules..just a little. There are a number of must have items in your closet that you simply should own to add to the day – to – day go to outfits.  Scarves, bracelets, sunglasses and hats. These are the accessory must haves. And they can take the drab to fab in a NY minute.

A Bad hair day need hats. Low T shirts need scarves. A morning after needs big sunglasses. A simple outfit needs a fur or shrug. A pair of jeans and a white T needs a feature kick. A wrist needs bling. Quote. Unquote.

From Presidents to movie stars, rock stars to artists, fashion designers to runway models, there’s not a generation alive that can’t remember owning a pair of these iconic sunglasses.

UnknownFounded in 1937 by Bausch & Lomb, the first Ray Ban sunglasses were created for the U.S. Army Air Corp. The Army was looking for a sunglass to protect aviators from the damaging rays of the sun, but also a sunglass that would look elegant on the dashing airman of the day.

I wore them through my high school years and then literally packed them away as we hit the opulent nineties and forgot about them. Until recently…I found my original Ray Bans and have been sporting them with an inner semi cool pride. My daughter friends are super impressed that sometime, way back, I might have been hip…my words..probably not theirs!
