Be One of Only 35 People in the World To Own the New, Limited-Edition Sama Heart of Gold Regal Sunglass.

A few weeks ago, Brian Glascow at Sama Eyewear swore us to secrecy when he shared a new Heart of GoldSama Limited Edition Heart of Gold Regal Sunglasses sunglass variation that Sheila Vance and the Sama Team had been hard at work on for months.

This was going to be a very special sunglass, Brian explained, with an extremely limited run: Sama was producing only 35 of these sunglasses, and just 10 of them were going to be available to the public through Sama’s small, exclusive network of independent optical boutiques.  The remainder would be available for purchase only at the Destination: Sama Beverly Hills, Rome, St. Louis and West Hollywood Boutiques and to a small, inner circle of Sama loyalists.

That’s right: There are only 35 of these sunglasses in the world.

Our Final Look for the “Sama Heart of Gold Sunglass Five Ways in Five Days” Style Series Draws Its Inspiration and Materials Straight from Nature

The final look in our Sama Heart of Gold Sunglasses: Five Ways Over Five Days Style Series is all about nature.

We centered the entire look around the beautifully light and airy purple and orange Diane Von Furstenburg “Layly” Tiger dress, which puts a new, colorful twist on this season’s continued obsession with animal prints.

We tried to carry the “Au Naturale” theme through the entire look, choosing accessories that utilized natural materials like wood and cork:  Purple D Squared wood platform heels, a Tahari cork clutch and a wood and gold bangle bracelet to finish it off.

Of course, there are also the Sama Heart of Gold sunglasses, which complement the rich, royal oranges and purples that dominate the ensemble.

Enjoy!

Can the Sama Heart of Gold Sunglass Hold Up to A Casual, But Chic Urban Look? You Tell Us After You’ve Seen Today’s “Heart of Gold: Five Ways Over Five Days” Look from Urban Optiques.

With just one more day left in our Sama Heart of Gold Sunglasses: Five Ways Over Five Days Style Series we decided to put together a more casual, street-smart and urban look with the Sama Heart of Gold Sunglasses.

Today’s look starts with a pair of sleek, latex-look leggings from Alice + Olivia paired with a cool, over-sized graphic jersey by Pagano.

We then added the Sama Heart of Gold sunglasses in platinum and 18K white gold, a fantastic Costume National black leather purse with silver accents and finished it off with a dangerous flash of red under the outfit’s monochromatic theme thanks to some truly killer Michette Daniele black leather patch sandals with sky-high red heels.

If the Michette Daniele heels are bit too edgy for your taste, this ensemble also works great with a pair of black leather booties, pumps, slingbacks or even chunky leather knee boots.

Check it out and let us know what you think.

The Gold Aviator Sunglasses Seen on Sarah Jessica Parker’s Carrie Bradshaw Character in Sex and The City 2 Are Causing an Eyewear Buzz. Who Makes Carrie’s Gold Sunglasses in SATC 2 and Where Can I Buy Them?

With this week’s box office debut of Sex and The City 2, we’ve received a deluge of e-mails asking who makes the goldCarrie Bradshaw's Gold Sunglassesx from Sex in the City 2 aviator sunglasses that Sarah Jessica Parker wears in her reprise of the Carrie Bradshaw role in Sex and The City 2?

The good news is we’ve identified Carrie’s gold aviators from SATC 2:  They are Mykita & Bernhard Willhelm’s “Franz” Limited-Edition Aviator Sheet-Metal Sunglasses ($525.)

The bad news is you’ll likely be waiting some time to get your hands on these sunglasses (maybe as long as the end of summer.)  The Mykitas have been on back order at Patricia Fields since the gold sunglasses first showed up on Sarah Jessica Parker in advanced publicity shots last year. No word on when they’ll be available.

How to Still Get Carrie’s Gold Plated Look: Sama

Although Urban Optiques doesn’t carry Mykita,  the lens coating technology that is used on the Mykita “Franz” Limited-Edition Gold Aviator sunglasses in Sex and The City 2 was actually developed by Sama Eyewear out of Los Angeles and is currently available on a wide-range of  Sama, Badgley Mischka and Loree Rodkin eyeCouture models at Urban Optiques.

Today’s Look Is All About Pairing the Heart of Gold Sunglass by Sama with Cool Whites and Neutrals for a Perfect All-Day-Long Summer Look

One of the things we wanted to accomplish with our “Sama Heart of Gold Five Ways Over Five Days” was toSama Heart of Gold Day 3 Look: Office Chic demonstrate how exceptionally versatile these handmade sunglasses by Sama are as an accessory.

The Heart of Gold is really jewelry for your face;  so like a ring, necklace or pair of earrings, you want to know that your investment has legs in terms of how many different ways you can pair it.

The first two looks we put together were a little more opulent — perfect for a summer wedding or formal event when the days are still long and you can wear your sunglasses into the evening hours.

Today’s look is a bit more understated.

We wanted to show how you take the Heart of Gold and accessorize them with day wear — letting you transition flawlessly from the office, to lunch, to dinner without doing much more than perhaps swapping out your shoes.

The look below combines the cool whites and neutral grays of an sophisticated shirt dress from Alice + Olivia with jewelry in yellow gold, diamonds and precious stones that once again play off from the Swarovski crystals in the Heart of Gold’s temples.
