anna wintour and i have something in common!
she's been recently quoted as saying that she loves to wear sunglasses outdoors as well as indoors. she says that she can "sit through a show bored out of my mind and not have anyone notice." she also says, "they have become armor".
i love sunglasses for the same reason. not only do they protect your eyes from the sun, they protect them from other people! people can tell how you feel by looking at your eyes, but if your eyes are concealed no one knows if you're asleep, awake, or if you have a bunch of old eye makeup on your face. i ride the train and bus a lot and i love to have my sunglasses on so no one can see my eyes. then i can just have a vacant expression and stare at nothing and not seem strange, or i can stare at people who look interesting and not have them look up or stare back. and even if they do look up at me, i don't care-- because i have sunglasses. :)
