Rose-tinted glasses

So I have this very bad tendency to see something on someone or somewhere, fall head over heels in love and then go absolutely crazy and overboard trying to incorporate whatever it is into my life.

Case in point - large sunglasses in pink and/or round with gradiated lenses. I lurv Miss Gala's glasses here. It's back to that desire for pink hair and color coding.

Another big part of it is the Chanel sunglasses. I bought these and then ended up selling them. For more than I bought them for at least but, even thought they looked somewhat comical on me, I kind of miss them but, damn!, they were expensive.

So off I went trolling on eBay to see what I could find searching pink, round, gradiated, vintage, etc. Here are some of what I found and bought.

You think these look crazy here? You should see them in person.

These are kind of a pinkish-peach color frame with amber gradiated lenses, but the arms don't go very wide.

This last pair are the best and this picture is totally useless, I know. I was going to swipe the picture from the auction and they're all down so I need to take some more. I promise to do so asap, but it would be remiss to not include them because they are the best of the bunch. They are HUGE and the lenses are a gradiated pink. I look like I have a giant pink butterfly on my face. I luv them mucho.

I promise, more pics to come soon. Maybe I'll dress all in pink tomorrow. That would wake you up in the winter!

I know, me too. They were so graphic and big and ridiculous in a good/great way. But the price I paid (and even more the price I sold them for) was obscene.

Plus, I getting them was half the fun. And I've found some other fun vintage ones on ebay (these here and more). And I've spent a ton on shoes lately.

I need to actually cut myself off for a while!

But still, I'd did pain me to let them go.
