Actress Cate Blanchett Wearing Tortoise Sunglasses in Perth, Australia

Trend Alert: Tortoise Shades

I have always been keen on tortoise shades. The marbleized brown and black has a cool retro flavor, and is less severe than black frames. It's the perfect grab-and-go-anywhere sunnie. When I spotted the always-fabulous Cate Blanchett in her tortoises in Perth, Australia, it cemented my love for the frame style. I'll take her shades, and a trip to Perth, please!

I love tortoise, they always remind me of Breakfast at Tiffany's (I know, she wears black nit tortoise, but it's that kind of funky but still pretty style)...

tulleandtea: Tom Ford's Anouks! They are my signature shades. I bought them in black too, but mostly wear the tortoise ones. ;)

Tom Ford issued these really cute cat eye shaped tortoise frames that I had to buy. :) I love them. Tortoise really is a classic.
