the future's so bright...

I think I forgot to mention to you all that I'm about to embark on a roadtrip around the Southwestern US?  Well, it's true! and I am so very excited to make my escape (albeit a brief one) from Los Angeles!
Obviously, I'll be posting about said road-trip as much as the hotel internet connections will allow but, meanwhile, I'm attempting to complete a list of to-do's before my departure next week.  After compling a short list, I thought -  aside from a car, gas and music - what does one need for a road-trip that I don't have? Then it dawned on me... a great pair of SUNGLASSES!  When you're driving across several States with wide-open terrain and (presumably...knock on wood) loads of sunshine you need something to hide your tired eyes behind, right? RIGHT!  It's not that I don't have any, it's just that I gave one pair of RayBans to "the brit", broke the other pair and my most worn pair is also about to lose an arm - I'm afraid the others just won't cut it. SO the search is on!

I've been spurred on by these cute butterscotch glasses (^ above) Rhiannon posted a week or two ago. SO...here are several contenders and/or ideas I threw together via polyvore...

Scary, huh? As you can see there is definitely a shape theme going on with most of these.  A more rounded version of the wayfarer, perhaps. I do really like the floral ones on the left side of the collage but maybe something more versatile would be smarter?  I should also mention that I don't want to spend a fortune this time around - because I like to lose and break things.  Any other ideas, suggestions, favorites?

PS: check out M.Ward's shades in the new She & Him video...aptly titled "In the Sun"

PPS: If that doesn't entice you to watch, perhaps Zooey D in a red polka dotted dress with a hula-hoop will?

Oh wow! a roadtrip is what I have always dreamed of doing, how lovely! The sunglasses in the top right hand corner of the sunglasses picture are such a nice colour and shape.

Very cute and road trips are the best. I might do one this summer. On sunglasses: if you find any affordable gigantic cat eye glasses, let me know. :)

ROADTRIP! I am extremely jealous right now. All the different cities, foods, amazing scenes: that sounds pretty damn good! And the perfect pair of sunglasses will make it even better!
