>> Don't worry, you ninnies, we're not here to talk about Dita Von Teese, burlesque artist and fiancee to Marilyn Manson, even though Harpers & Queen magazine did name her as the #2 best dressed woman in the world in their May 2005 issue. I just felt like playing off of her name. But let's get down to the good stuff.
Summer is finally here with Memorial Day weekend just behind us, and I bet your bottom dollar that tomorrow there'll be sun. So what am I saying here, Annie? It is serious sunglasses season. Eek, but I don't have any sunglasses worthy of wearing -- what to do? Fortunately, Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, who must know something, since John Galliano looked to them to inspire his fall collection at Dior, have provided us with the perfect answer -- Dita sunglasses. These vintage-inspired frames are a big hit with MKA (surprise, surprise), and they go along with the huge sunglasses trend that has been ubiquitous as of late. My personal favorite style is the Supa Dupa (left), because if you're gonna go big, you might as well just go all the way. It's backordered until late June at 80spurple.com, available for $165. Other styles, like the bestselling Isola ($150), are available at disrespectacles.com.
For those of you who like the vintage-inspired sunglasses look, but aren't so ready to splurge, fret not. 80spurple.com has a great selection of vintage-inspired sunglasses, each for $22 -- so you can still have bug eyes if you want them. I'm a sucker for the 60's Vintage Inspired Sunglasses (right).
