is an accessories queen. Or at least, she is our
accessories queen, with a girl-next-door wearability and a high-design sense of glamour. Each of her bags, shoes, and gorgeous little pouches
are bedecked with perfectly placed details without being overdone, meaning that Minkoff fans can score investment pieces
that they can actually wear (imagine that!). (Unabashed plug: You can find loads of great R. Minkoff scores at half-off right now on Reserve
!) So when the NYC-based designer decided to branch into eyewear, we imagined dramatic cat-eye frames, wayfarers with a feminine twist, and pops of color and plenty of hardware
. And, of course, we were right.
So we got a sweet weekend treat when we heard the sunnies seen at her spring '12 show
in September were shipping tomorrow — we felt it was high-time to remind ourselves just how delicately and fun eyewear can be. We've got our favorite picks of Rebecca Minkoff's new sunglasses right here
, and they are set to arrive into our waiting hands in stores, on ShopBop, and Piperlime in, like 24 hours. When was the last time you thought, "Hey, I own too many sunglasses?" Never? We thought so.
