NYC Part 2: Round metal Ray-bans

This post is the second installment of banter about my recent girls weekend in NYC. If you missed the first one, you can read it here: NYC Part 1: Feeding my soul.


Looking for new sunglasses this season? Allow John Lennon to show you the way.

When I walked into the New York Public Library on 5th Avenue during my trip, a post card from The Readers and Writers Shop caught my eye.


John Lennon. 1974. Round metal sunglasses. Wavy hair. Cross pendant. Graphic Tee. Belt buckle.

I immediately bought it with plans to tack up in my office for inspiration. Totally retro, full of attitude, and the photo reminded me of an old poster I hung in my college dorm room.


Later in the trip my long-time friend and I found ourselves trying on sunglasses and having a photoshoot as we worked our way around the store modeling each designers collection.


At the end of our escapade, we learned that the “in” sunglasses this season are round metal Ray-bans. Or basically, round anything. But the Ray-bans took me back to the postcard. This years look is inspired by legendary musicians in the 1960’s. Of course!

You may say I’m a dreamer
But I’m not the only one

Gold, silver, pink, purple, knock-offs… Getcha some.



Here comes the sun, here comes the sun
And I say it’s all right

Little darling, it’s been a long cold lonely winter
Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here


Stay tuned for the third installment of banter about my recent girls weekend in NYC. Coming soon!
