"Don't underestimate the cosmetic power of sunglasses. It's worth spending a bit of money on a quality pair.  I usually do for Dior." - Dita Von Teese


Trendsetters around the globe love the feminine shape of the cat-eye sunglasses.   My obsession with them is no different.  Thus, I have reader glasses that are in this shape as well my shades.  Every time, I sport them, there are lots of compliments.  Perhaps it is nostalgia, the hue or how it makes everyone feel and bespoke elegant.  After all, sometimes one needs a bit of mystery, decadence or lioness magic added to our faces. 

The history behind the evolution of the beloved cat-eye started by the inventor Altina Schinasi Miranda in the late 1920's.  Miranda created a new shape that flattered and remains in vogue today. Audrey Hepburn in the film, Breakfast at Tiffany's 1961,  immortalized and stamped the cat-eye sunglasses firmly in our minds.  The iconic pose of Hepburn is everywhere and copied repeatedly by every generation henceforth. Beauties include, Grace Kelly, Audrey Hepburn, Beyonce', Gigi Hadid, Selena Gomez, Priyanka Chopra and you.   

These lovies can be passed down generation to generation and never go out of style.  The tiny retro shape continually keeps on point every season.  Why not be chic, memorable and ever so feline?
