We're familiar with beer goggles, but when we heard of champagne goggles, we thought lewd hook-ups had gone to a much classier level. But Veuve Clicquot wants us to take the phrase literally—by debuting a limited-edition Smith Transit goggle that puts a whole new spin on Alpine-chic. The unisex goggles are tricked out with Veuve's tell-tale golden logo, champagne-colored lenses (natch), and a rad microfiber bag. Plus, they're not just a vanity piece: The ski sunnies include cylindrical, carbonic X lenses, an airflow ventilation system, and single-layer face foam. Specially commissioned for the tony bubbly's "Clicquot in the Snow Week" in Aspen, we're bemoaning the fact that there probably won't be anymore snow days between now and spring.
Last but not least, R29 is hooking you up: 25 of our readers will win the Veuve Cliquot Goggles, retailing for $105. The FIRST 25 people to tweet at us with this link will win! We'll Direct Message you to know where to send the goods.
