please let it be summer soon.

Inspired by this photo above from the facehunter, I started thinking about sunglasses. After all, New York is experiencing some freak weather these days (tomorrow is supposed to be 65!?) -- maybe summer really is just around the corner!

You should click on the photo above for a better view of this lovely girl's shades - they're pretty awesome. They remind me a little of the Batman masks on the models at the Luella show for spring 2008. And while the glasses might be a little much for my tastes, I give this girl serious props for pulling them off - and for keeping the rest of the outfit simple.

It's true that my heart forever belongs to my Tom Ford Anouk cat-eye sunglasses, seen above, in my profile shot, and basically every other photo that's been taken of me since about May. I'm in love with their retro shape, and the fact that I sort of feel like Natasha from Rocky and Bullwinkle (remember?).

But my next big sunglasses obsession? Heart-shaped.

THEY'RE SO CUTE. I remember seeing a girl walking in SoHo over the summer wearing glasses like these, and it was so refreshing to see something other than Ray-Ban Wayfarers that I almost hugged her.

They're maybe a little costume-y, but so darling I don't even care. These above can be found on Screaming Mimi's website, and I might just need them.

Lolita sunglasses is my love child. I've been wanting a pair for the longest time. They are pretty much everywhere now but I still haven't prepared myself to drop 20 bucks on them.
