While I'm working on the recap for Balm because it is taking me longer than I thought and damn it I'm buried in RL work, here's a little bit to tide us over. I've been saving this item (among others) for a special SAMCRO holiday wish list blog but I figured there is no time like the present. As I've mentioned before I want Gemma's sunglasses. In fact, I covet them. The rectangular shape, the metal frames, the gradient lenses. Want. Want. Want. And behold after a rainy Saturday spent online window shopping, here they are in all their glory (right). These are by Oliver Peoples, called the Elise sunglasses. Available at Shop Bop and Neiman Marcus.
If the $350 price tag makes you pause (As I'm sure Mr. Kayteadee will when he gets my Christmas shopping list this year. Whether I get them or not, entirely depends on whether I've been naughty or nice this year. Or both) there are some options that will get you a similar look for less cash. There is a great pair of Marc by Marc Jacobs sunglasses (left) at Nordstrom for $98
And, last but not least a pair of Gucci sunglasses (right) at Neiman Marcus for $295
I think any three of these would make you or your lady feel a little more badass cruising around town. Open heart surgery scar optional.
