    The quest for the perfect pair of sunglasses is nothing to throw shade at, if you know what I mean. I'm all for extreme cat-eyes, John Lennon-style mini circles, and mirrored lenses, but when investing in a pair of frames, it's back to basics for me with a set that'll stretch the dollar and last a lifetime. Because, let's be honest, settling on a new pair of sunnies takes some serious time (and way more iPhone selfies than I'd like to admit).

No one does finishing touches, whether it's rose-gold bridges and hinges or the option of shiny or matte metals, quite like Barton Perreira.

    Now, it's just up to us (note to self) to not let these beauties get loose in the depths of our (ahem, my) purses. After all, as long as "we" don't, these bad boys are sure to keep us looking effortlessly cool for basically the rest of time. And, we can't think of anything better than that.
