change colors to match your costume

Guys, I’m too excited about my new 1950s sunglasses that have clip-on scalloped brows in different colors.


1950s sunglasses



I’m going to have fun matching my “costumes” this summer!  I have a feeling clip-on decoration on glasses will be coming back in a big way.  So I’m ahead of the game on this one!

    You look like you stepped out of the Golden Age of Hollywood in these photos– especially with your perfect hair and red lipstick. Awesome sunglasses, they remind me a little of the Prada eyebrow sunglasses:
