Deine kleine Schwester said...

A woman could never have enough sunglasses.... So do I.... I'm addicted to sunglasses ;) Just found VEEEEEEERY cool Valentino sunglasses from 2001 with rhinestones - they're fricking fabulous!
Hm, seems I'm more on the vintage sunglasses side right now :-D
Wow, the picture of model-mom and model-daughter with those stunning wigs/helmets is so funny!
I'm wishing you a relaxed and wonderful weekend!
Much love, Sofie

MizzJ said...

The Oscar de la Rentas are so chic!

Allison said...

I do wish my face wasn't so tiny so I could wear some of these fabulous sunglasses without looking like a bug! I guess I'll have to stick with wayfarers and be jealous of everyone else :)

Yummm, I love green tea ice cream! And those photographs are just stunning.
Enjoy your weekend, my dear!

dee said...

I love these photos...especially the ones at the bottom. So neat and so 1950s! Your six things are definitely on my list, except I'd pick mint chocolate chip and coffee for my ice creams;) I also would pick my dogs, traveling, massages, good music, and naps with Paul on a weekend afternoon.

Make Do Style said...

Fab sunnies post so love sunglasses - must post on some too.
Love roof top gardens/bars too and green tea ice cream looks delish!

Unknown said...

Nice selection of sunnies! I currently have my eyes on a pair of vintage cutler and gross. I need to stop buying shoes so that i can stock up on other things!

Lily Clark said...

ooh I just love the more square glasses you featured.

The boat/floating photos reminds me of the painting Ophilia by Millais.

Absolutely stunning..

Gabbi said...

Awesome sunglasses and list of (un)important happy things dear CC... very much with you on the green tea ice cream and the photography of Sofia Sanchez and Mauro Mongiello. I love the photo of mother and daughter with matching hair! Such a fan of big hair... :)

Amelia said...

I adore the Lanvin ones. This is such a cool post!

OmnisLucis said...

Love the heart frames! And, for a minute, I thought the tea ice cream was pistachio, my absolute fave. Green tea is just as pretty, but I just can't get into it!

I love the Oscar de la Renta sunglasses. I should wear sunglasses more often!


Human Racing said...

Nice post! I really like the Michael Kors and Carolina Herrera sunglasses.

erika sorocco said...

If I had limitless cash, I believe I would buy sunnies constantly - they're an addiction of mine. Those Topshop ones may be my favorites - so whimsical and fun! :)

BonBon Rose Girls Kristin said...
