Sexy Shades

What is it about a great pair of sunglasses that makes you feel sexy? I swear, I'll be bundled beyond belief in the dead of winter but as soon as I slip on a pair of shades I suddenly feel chic. (Man, Chicago has gotten to me.) But really, there's got to be some magic formula for sunglasses increasing your sexy quotient immediately.

As far as I'm concerned, owning great sunglasses is always a good choice. Case in point:

Now, I'm not the kind of girl who gets all crushy on celebrities, but when Mr. Fix-It and I were watching Prison Break a few nights ago I think we both had a moment.

Lincoln Burrows = sunglass perfection

After my hot flash passed, I was reminded of one of my major recent quests: OPERATION GET MR. FIX-IT SEXY SUNGLASSES. For real, people, his sunglasses make me crazy. When we first met I wasn't terribly bothered by these things. But now, whenever he puts them on, I want to "accidentally" pull them off his face and break them. Sadly, he's on to me. When his sunglasses went missing a few weeks ago he was convinced I was part of some sort of switcheroo.

I realize there are starving children in Africa and all, but MY GOD these things drive me batty. They're too small for his face.

Mr. Fix-It isn't entirely opposed to finding a new pair of sunglasses. Here's the issue: the man has a large head. We've hit every Sunglass Shop, Nordstrom, and eyewear boutique I can find. Every time it's the same story: they're too narrow, or just "weird". Big, sexy, oversized aviators don't wrap far enough around his noggin to make the look work. So, I ask you dear readers, do you know of some magical brand that runs a little wide? Where does your man buy sunglasses?


  1. hahaha I have no suggestions, but good luck on your search! Mike didn't even own sunglasses when I met him & it took us FOREVER to find a pair that he liked. Don't a lot of shops make adjustments to glasses to help them fit on heads? Maybe try a smaller boutique-they could have a solution!

  2. Love this post! I wish I had some advice, but Corey's sunglasses are prescription (since, you know, he wears glasses) and I have clue about normal men's sunglasses! But I definitely agree that sunglasses can be incredibly sexy! :)

  3. We're going to give it another go this weekend. I saw some good looking Lacoste ones at Nordstrom. Fingers crossed!!!

  4. Glasses always look small on Jim, too. He has sunglasses right now that he likes, but I think they are too small for his face. If you find a solution, I hope you post an update!:)

  5. Oh man, up until last year, the only pair of sunglasses that Justin owned were Oakleys...aka sporty and soooo not attractive for everyday wear. I hatedddd them. We finally ended up getting him some Wayfarers from Ray Ban (well, the "New Wayfarer" style, since they are a little smaller) and I LOVE how they look. I'm not sure how those would look on your man, but I always love a guy in Ray Bans....

  9. I know this if off topic but I'm looking into starting my own weblog and was wondering what all is required to get setup? I'm assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?
    I'm not very web smart so I'm not 100% positive.

    Any tips or advice would be greatly appreciated.
    Thank you
