I've been planning this shoot / post for months and everything always seemed to go wrong. The first time it was supposed to end up in a magazine, but no photographer was available and I ended up missing the deadline. The next time we shot this and the SD card got ruined in the wash. After months of picking through which content was the best fit for this post, I decided these two looks were the best. I'm glad it took so long because I got to work with the amazing Adrien Rodriguez, who is and aspiring photographer and youtuber. He really made these photos look so wonderful. So here it is finally, a summer in sunnies featuring my two favorites, the heart-shaped glasses and the embellished glasses.
Heart Shaped Glasses:
I first stumbled across these Lolita-esque gems on The ManRepeller's Instagram. Leandra Medine is known for her keen sense on finding the most kitschy accessories to ever exist. These babies are from Takesh a cute Instagram store that's taking over. This heart shaped style has been seen on St Marks st in the fun colorful downtown neighborhood to the high end boutiques on Madison Ave via Saint Laurent. If you're searching for the perfect girly accessory these should be your go to.

We all know 80's glam is having a big come back with big puffy sleeves and fun metallic fabrics, no wonder Embellished glasses are having their moment. According to WGSN, decorated eyewear silhouettes take on embellishments for an individualised and custom look. Brands like Valentino, River Island, and Dolce Gabbana have also participated in this oh so glam trend. But all in all these sunnies give me major Elton John vibes, so if you're anything like me you'd want to channel your inner rockstar.
