Yes, it is clear that I am wearing some glasses, or readers if you will, today. What is not so clear is exactly why, as you may ask since I have perfectly clear vision and have never been prescribed the need for a pair of glasses in my life. Oh, that’s right I know exactly why…because they’re cute, DUH! Of course, I think this because I don’t have to wear them every day. I always remember one of my friends wearing glasses all the time and she didn’t like them. Eventually, she decided to visit a laser eye surgeon (look here to find out more) for surgery to correct her vision. Now, she doesn’t have to wear glasses anymore. Peronsally, I love glasses as an accessory. The exact reason why we fashion obsessed fork out our wallets for most things, the exact reason that they are simply cute, stylish, fashionable, chic, luxurious, beautiful, you name the adjective and we will say how much in return. The clear readers trend has been taking the fashion scene for a few months and models, IT girls and all around savvy dressers have been picking up a pair from the ever growing roster of stores carrying frames such as Urban Outfitters, ASOS, Forever 21 you name it! All the high street stores have taken the hint from designer brands on eyewear trends for the spring. I being the extra extra version of myself that I am and that I hope you have grown to love and appreciate for being ever so extra of course HAD TO HAVE them as soon as I saw a pair of clear framed aviator readers from the one and only Gucci. Not only were these the glasses of the season that I had been looking for but the sides of the glasses even adorned green and red stripes for a classic gucci touch to make things even better…a moment for these readers of all readers. While a few seasons ago clear aviator readers may have reminded you of the 70s or something you might find of your grandpa’s nightstand but now these groovy glasses should only have you thinking about street style stars and how many subtly different pairs you can justify. Leave me a comment below and tell me if you will be (or already have) snagged yourself a pair of clear framed readers! Do you think this trend will stay or fade quickly away?
For today’s look was for a simple weekend running around from the Fairfax Flea Market, to sushi and The Grove with my sisters having some girl talk, hunting down vintage Levi’s and ordering one too many sushi rolls (if that’s even possible. I wanted to wear some of my new Spring wardrobe from Boohoo.com, which you all know is one of my absolute favorite online stores and each season I like to stock up on some new goodies. I rarely wear shorts so when I do they had better be something pretty special and the lace up detail (another huge trend lately) on the side of these jean shorts was something that I had not seen before and felt truly belonged as a new asset in my wardrobe. I’m always one who likes to mix things up and play around a bit so I paired my lace up boohoo shorts with a bow front tie bodysuit, that’s right it’s a bodysuit keeping my “shirt” perfectly tucked in and evenly distributed all day long for an easy incredibly stylish look. Last but not least we needed a belt to break things up and of course make the look classic Daphne extra extra, so we paired my newer Gucci belt that I might mention I have been on the waiting list for 6 months to get! Throw on some essentials, don’t forget your clear frames duh, a cool girl bun and you are ready to hit the town from flea market to chic sushi sit down you are all set. This is a perfectly easy way to take your jean shorts from ba-sic to way-hip…no I’m just kidding I couldn’t help myself, but this chic bodysuit is a great way to dress up a more simple pair of jean shorts and create an authentically original look.
