How Do I Look?

By Heidi @missfinn
How do I look?Sunglasses, shades or as we call them down here, sunnies, are probably the most essential accessory in a person's wardrobe. When leaving the house, I grab my purse, keys and sunnies.  Without them life is viewed through squinted eyes and frankly it's just a pain in the arse to drive here without them.  
How do I look?Whether you spend $20 or $500 on yours, it's all about how they frame your face, and I guess for some, even the look you wish to project - tough, demure, serious, intelligent, etc.  
How do I look?Sunglasses have long been making their mark in the movies, some have even been lifted to iconic status based on an appearance in a movie.

Some may own a single pair, making them work for all occasions, while others of us may have many more to choose from, deciding which frame to wear depending on outfit, mood, the season, hair colour, etc.  I have a gorgeous pair of classic Gucci's that I can only wear when my hair is long because they just don't suit me when my hair is short.  
How do I look?I used to have the most amazing pair of black Chanel's that I wore to death - literally, they fell apart after much too much wear.  It was a very sad day when that happened because I loved them so much, they looked fabulous!
How do I look?I have been inspired by Prada's current designs, but my biggest issue with them is that while they are in vogue now, fashion is fleeting, and so parting with the amount of money Prada requires, well...  I would rather have a pair that will stand the test of time.  Of course, if I had loads of cash to spare, I'd buy the Prada's immediately!
