You wake up in a strange bed. It takes a moment but you eventually realize that you “did the do” and stayed the night. Once you’ve retrieved your panties from the ceiling fan you realize it’s about time you made your way back home.

Sunglasses in the summer are almost as vital of an accessory as your handbag. Although initially created to shield our eyes from the sun, over time fashion has shown us that sunglasses are more than just a handy item, but a fashion statement as well. Hence the reason they come in all different shapes and sizes; and of course we all know, sometimes the bigger the bolder!
In addition to the popular brands like Gucci, Marc Jacobs, and Carrera, there are other brands that are just as stylish at only a fraction of the price.

As someone who has worn glasses most of my life, losing the opportunity to wear all kinds of funky shades for many years before I was brave enough to try contacts, sunglasses are a special treat. They can add drama and attitude to any outfit. For example, have you ever put on a pair of shades, big as that thang, pulled them to the end of your nose and immediately felt like a celebrity making a mad dash away from the paparazzi? Girl, yes. But just because you love sunglasses of all different colors, designs and sizes, doesn’t mean every pair of frames works for every kind of face. You should also be cautious of how some ornately colored shades work with your skin tone too. So before you stretch out a good pair of arms on those frames that don’t fit your face or end up looking like The Fly cause you wanted to rock the extra large, dramatic sunglasses, know what looks work exceptionally well with the shape of that face of yours.
Are you ready to stunt in some shades this summer? Make sure you’re not caught squinting in last year’s styles. There are some pretty new and innovative styles of sunglasses that have hit the runways.
Black Voices put together a list of these styles (with pictures).
We understand that sunglasses are everyone’s favorite dime pieces, but is there such thing as wearing it all day, everyday? Celebrities may not realize a habit when its entrenched into their daily lifestyles, but an on-going trend could wind up becoming the most annoying thing on the planet! You may not realize how much you’ve adapted to the sunblock shades…you gotta keep them on your mantel piece, bring them to the doctor’s office, or even to the club! Some may interpret this as a burgeoning fashion statement gone wild or just simple eye candy! For your information, latching onto them too often could impair the eyesight if worn in dark places. We understand being image-conscious is a vital asset, but is there such thing as wearing them too much?
