I'll admit that I am pretty excited a new trend in sunglasses finally came along. Sure, we all flirted with aviators and other styles last year, but the frame with staying power was, of course, the Ray Ban Wayfarer.
I actually tribute the entire trend to none other than Sienna Miller in (I think...) 2008:
The trend was non-ceasing. Even Twilight hunk Robert Pattinson wore them in the movie.
2008 AND 2009 came and went. Ray Bans abounded. And then I saw these...
...on the Prada F/W 2010 runways and I knew change was coming! Enter the Cateye!
I'm sure the Ray Ban trend hasn't seen its final days, but I was more than excited to see such a cool, glamorous, Mad Men-esque trend come about. Now the cateye is something I can get excited about!
What do you think? Still rocking the Ray Bans or are you looking to update your eyewear with some cateyes? Perhaps another style?
PS. My glasses are both from F21. Why? They're cheap and after sitting on and squashing some truly gorgeous Marc Jacobs sunglasses I have sworn off expensive sunglasses until I can afford several back-ups (aka a long time).
