Living in a state a sun state. I always want protection for my eyes. My inspiration for collection vintage sunglasses came from the show L.A. Frock Stars  and Vogue. It's filmed at the store  The Way We Wore. The owner of the store Doris Raymond is amazing. She has an entire store dedicated to vintage clothing and accessories. Doris not only has a wide selection, but she also educates you on the vintage items. She can tell you the history behind the item and the designer. In many of the episodes of the show her staff is always wearing these amazing Sunglasses.

 So that got me thinking, summer is coming up soon. Many of us are going to be outside. I'm one of those women who likes to change my look for the summer. That also means getting new accessories that match. Sunglasses are one of the big accessories that women around the summer. Don't know a single woman that doesn't have more than 3 pairs of sunglasses. I like to have my accessories match what I'm wearing

Vintage sunglasses are perfect for the summer. There are so many different types, colors and shapes. My favorite type of vintage sunglasses are form the 1970's and Jackie-O. The bigger the sunglasses are the better. The Tortoiseshell and over sized are my personal favorite.

The seller mentioned to me that these are similar to the one's Actress Amy Adams Wore in American Hussle.
They kind of look like the one's she's wearing.

If you are looking for vintage sunglasses you will need to go to vintage stores or Etsy. I like shopping on Etsy for several reasons. There are so many sunglasses listed, lots of shops, and you can refine your search. Many of the sellers will email you, and ask if you are looking for something. That they can keep an eye out for you. Makes things easier when you are looking for something specific. I had a seller the other day that emailed me a few pictures. Of some sunglasses that I might be interested in. They were just what I was looking for so I purchased them. Etsy also takes has different payment options Credit Cards, Etsy gift-cards, and they also accept Pay Pal.
