Kitchen shambles aside, though, the other monumental event to happen to The Anti DC this week occurred via E-mail. (Of course it did...*sigh*) I've mentioned that I get E-mail from readers every once in a while. Most of it is either to compliment my efforts (natch!) or to suggest blog ideas (all of which are always appreciated, btw). However, this week, I received a request for -- ready? -- fashion advice!
But I digress. Apparently, despite all my good-natured mocking and unnatural love for retardulous clothing items, someone still dared to ask my opinion. The topic? Sunglasses. What looks good on girls? What looks good on guys? Well, allow me to force my opinion on you.
Vintage Cazel 852 oversized shades, $233.93 @ Vintage Sunglasses Shop
Esquire Sunglasses; $60 @ American Apparel
F6745 Sunglasses (nice name, right?); $5.80 (nice price, RIGHT?) @ Forever 21 (I know...right.)
Some may find my choices in sunglasses recommendations ridiculous, and to that I say, you're probably right. Remember, this advice is coming from the girl whose sunglasses elicit her coworkers to proclaim "Jesus walks!" as she slips them on.
Wow. And that officially marks the second instance in which my coworkers have compared me to a man. I know I should probably be insulted because, you know, I'm, like, not a man and stuff, but you know what? I'm sick and twisted enough to take it as a compliment (of course I would!). After all, Kanye West has impeccable taste...as does Luke Skywalker...and...moving on...
So speaking of men, let me move on to Part 2 of my first reader fashion question -- what looks good on men? Well, I think men, much like ladies, can go various directions with their sunglasses choices. However, the best of the best (in my opinion) to enhance any man's appearance is either the classic wayfarer or the old-school aviator. Brad Pitt wears 'em!
"Oh, hi Marissa!"
And 1980s Tom Cruise wears 'em!
"I miss you 1980s Tom."
"I miss you too, Marissa. I miss you too."
