Array ( [0] => Array ( [0] => I’ll admit that I wish I was more tan. But what I don’t wish for is skin cancer. I wear overly large Dior sunglasses to keep my eyes (and even more importantly the fragile skin around my eyes) safe from the sun’s evil rays. Yes, summer is fun and the warmth is glorious, but I have a serious bone to pick with our life-giving star for bringing with all its goodness a whole lot of radiation and cancer-causing rays. So, instead of being more tan and, by connection, sexier, I’m stuck looking like a vampire but happily a cancer free one.

You want to be able to see but glasses put pressure on your sinuses and contact lenses added to the itchy feel. Now, with high technology contacts like Focus and AcuVue you’ll be able to keep your high-moisture contact lenses in without that itchy, dry feeling. If you are still feeling pain from the allergies in your eyes perhaps rinsing them with solution will rid your eye of pollen and dander.

Array ( [0] => Array ( [0] => It seems, much to my dismay, that horn-rimmed sunglasses are coming back in style. This is upsetting because this is a style my grandmother has been rocking for the past thirty years, along with spotted dresses, heels indoors and hair in buns. Gwen Stefani in Christian Dior Paname/S sunglasses, personifies the new age of horn-rimmed fashion. Not as overt as it was in Grandma’s generation but still a defined upward angle and more bulk higher than the eyebrow—a look that was fading in the 90s and returned again recently for a brief respite from retirement.

But even though you are acutely aware of this how often do you really have your sunglasses at hand? Buying a pair of designer Tom Fords is one way to make sure you have something you love at your side ready to slip into at the first sign of sunlight. Yes, they are sporty, cool and refined but more importantly they protect you in a way that is priceless.

Array ( [0] => Array ( [0] => Sometimes fashion goes too far with marketing. The race to be ever more eye-catching results in the ridiculous. Tom Ford has been slammed for its overly sexual ads that are homosexual and heterosexual in nature, which isn’t the real issue—the constant nudity is. Gucci did an ad a few years ago where the Gucci G was shaved into a woman’s pubes, which isn’t exactly high-brow. Calvin Klein is always putting their models on the runway nearly nude, especially famous are their black and white underwear ads. Abercrombie and Fitch has been slammed for its almost entirely nude magazine, this primarily because Abercrombie is a clothes distributor, the nudity isn’t even logical. Of course, they black bagged it and now charge for the magazine to adults only, but all that really means is that the company is now a clothing and pornography distributor.
