Designer Sunglass of The Week


Why We Love the Tom Ford Narcissa Sunglass …

Every now and then, a sunglass comes along that just makes you stop dead in your tracks and say “wow.”Tom Ford Narcissa Sunglasses

For us, that sunglass is the Tom Ford Narcissa.

When we got our first shipment of Tom Ford sunglasses in over the summer, two of the Tom Ford sunglass models immediately jumped out at us:  The Whitney (a favorite of Angelina Jolie) and the Tom Ford Narcissa.

We had seen these sunnies in magazines and on the Internet, but nothing could prepare us for actually having a couple pairs in our eager little hands.

Tom Ford Sunglasses: Celebrity Hot

Beginning last year, we noticed Tom Ford sunglasses making (repeated) appearances on everyone from Jennifer Aniston to Anne Hathaway, Charlize Theron and Jessica Biel.

While Tom Ford Eyewear has been a little slow to catch on off the coasts (eyewear trends tend to move inward from L.A. and New York, so there is usually a lag before something gets hot in Detroit), once we started getting them in front of people, they began to sell.

What we love about the Tom Ford Narcissa (and many of the women’s sunglasses in Tom Ford’s lineup) is that they utilize simple, curvy lines to produce a very feminine, sophisticated and sexy sunglass.

Get Daniel Craig’s Look with the Limited Edition Tom Ford TF108 James Bond “Quantum of Solace” Aviator Sunglasses

Unlike every other hired-gun sunglass blogger out there writing about the Tom Ford TF108 “James Bond” sunglasses,Tom Ford TF108 Aviator Sunglasses as featured in Quantum of Solace I’m going to spare all of you the usual hackneyed James Bond cliches in this post. You don’t need to hear another “shaken but stirred” reference or catch-phrase like “Bond … James Bond” to appreciate this week’s designer sunglass. 

Some disclaimers up front: Wearing these great aviators from Tom Ford will NOT make you a secret agent (although you may feel like one, depending on you level of imagination), it will not get you special privileges (like a license to kill) from the Queen Mother, and unless you are pulling down some serious dough, you probably won’t find yourself wearing them in an Aston Martin.

They may, however, protect your eyes from damaging UV rays, make you look really cool and perhaps even get you a date with a local, aspiring “Bond Girl” or bring out the inner femme fatale in your girlfriend or wife.

While this frame looks fantastic on men, if you’re a woman looking for a unique, high-quality aviator sunglass, you’ll want to check out the TF108 as well.  Jessica Biel did and she was recently spotted wearing a pair of the Tom Ford James Bond shades.

In other words, these are some really cool aviator sunglasses, even if Daniel Craig had never wore them in “Quantum of Solace.”

Click Your Ruby Slippers Together for this Classic Hollywood Inspired Sunglass from Badgley Mischka Couture Eyewear

The Badgley Mischka line of couture eyewear occupies a special place in The Visionista’s heart.

I’m not certain what it is, but Badgley Mischka eyewear continues to be one of my favorite luxury sunglass and ophthalmic lines that we offer at Urban Optiques. Badgley Mischka

While their eyewear line doesn’t generate the buzz of a Chanel or Tom Ford, it really should.

In my opinion, it’s one of the best kept eyewear secrets out there: Badgley Mischka’s eyewear is glamorous and beautifully-constructed and they definitely get “seen.”

Plus, they travel well — I’m currently wearing a gorgeous pair of Badgley Mischka “Marilyn” in pearl (with tiny little, subtle crystals along the temples) and they look amazing with everything from jeans to a well-tailored skirt-suit. I get tons of compliments whenever I have them on.

Which brings me to today’s “Designer Sunglass of the Week”: The Badgley Mischka “Dorothy.”
