What’s in my cart :: Marc Jacobs sunglasses

So if you’ve been a regular reader of my humble little blog, you will be very aware of my love affair with Marc.

Marc Jacobs, that is.

And, as with all affairs, it all started very innocently.  I’d been visiting KS#2 and my god-bébé one normal Saturday and I’d nonchalantly inquired as to whether she had a spare pair of sunglasses for me to use as a prop in one of my planned outdoor photo shoots.  She answered yes just as nonchalantly, dropping a rather cumbersome case in my lap.

That case would be to me what the briefcase was to Vincent and Jules in Pulp Fiction.

Because, my friends, in that case was the most supermegafoxyawesomehot pair of shades ever created.  Now you would think I’d have known right off the bat that these were meant for me since I know from eye wear, but I’m more about eyeglasses than sunglasses, so at first, the sheer size of the lenses were off-putting.

But then I put them on, mugging in front of her full-length mirror, and it was love at first sight.  Even though they aren’t prescription and my vision was therefore blurry and perhaps contributed to my being instantaneously smitten, it didn’t change the fact that these shades settled on my face as if made for me and I felt like a goddess in them.

I immediately became Gollum with these suckers.  I threw the case in my purse, bid my sis a hasty farewell before she could change her mind about loaning them, and hightailed it back home for not one, but multiple photo shoots wearing my new precious, as seen here and here and here and here.

And now we come to part one of my dilemma.  KS#2 is eventually gonna want these back.  And I’m okay with buying myself a pair.  Even found them at a reasonable price online.  But which color?

And part two?  Well, once we’ve established color, I need to decide whether or not I should get prescriptions put in them.  This would add an extra $50 to the price tag.

So do I pull the trigger?  For which color?  Prescription or no?  Or should I just not mention them ever again to KS#2 and see how long “indefinitely” can extend?

P.S.  Today is the last day for your challenge links, my friends!  Send them my way and we’ll see what my closet and I can come up with next week!

    • I see you’re clearing your inbox tonight. Lol! You oughtn’t feel pressured to leave comments on each one, but I do appreciate the email notifications when you do. 😀

  1. Hello my fashion SOLS March challenge friend(since I don’t know your name this is what I call you but hey I WOULD recognise your face…ha:), Okay I accepted your challenge to send you inspiration so you can “dress accordingly” from your closet full of clothes. No I didn’t go to a fashion site. I went to the website of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Here are links to some art work. It was fun. I read today that recommendations are closing so I had to choose kind of quickly as my taxes are looming large on my have to do list. I was thinking you could take on the whole piece of art or select a part to interpret. If nothing strikes your fancy you could look at any number of other pieces of art work on this site or the numerous other Art museums online. I hope this new direction ignites more creative possibilities! (You know just like the Project Runway contestants inspiration from their trip to Europe this week. Yes I watch but don’t have cable so have to wait until Friday to watch it online on my ipad:) Best, Kim

    • OMG, Kim! I LOVE these! And I LOVE Project Runway! Guess what? You have graduated and have earned your own challenge week! That’s right! I’m gonna use all five of these links as inspiration for LACMA/Kim Challenge Week! That being the case, you now have an extra week to replace these if you wish. Or keep sending the links and leave it up to me to decide. ;p

      • WOW! I am honored and can NOT wait to see what you come up with!! I will grant you freedom to swap out for any art piece as long as it is from LACMA. (I am soo generous!!!:) That is in case you get stumped by one of these choices. So far my personal theme weeks are limited to what fits this week but I am inspired to make it work,,. 🙂

        • I challenge you to do a color a week. That is, choose one color and try to incorporate a piece or three of that color in your outfit. You can even be coy and do tiny earrings – it’ll be like “Where’s Waldo?”, no? ;p

Tell me all about it! I'm listening...
