memories made in the coldest wintour

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. :)


  1. I always try to remember taking them off (it's not polite wearing them inside), but I'd rather wear them all the time!

  2. thanks, Zoe :)

    lol about the sunglasses, I'm the opposite, I feel weird with them on if I'm inside anywhere..


  3. Very revealing quote! I would NEVER be bored at a fashion show; maybe I should take her job?


  4. Hey ! Thanks for your comment on my blog :)
    yeah for beyonce i think we did the right choice ;)
    lovely blog by the way :))

    a bientot !

  5. Thanks for the comment on my blog! I figured that is why she always wore sunglasses. Her body language makes her look bored. The shades can't hide that.

  6. I read somewhere that she also has sensitive eyes and sometimes the show lights hurt her eyes. Not sure how true that is though.

  7. I LOVE this, although I don't agree with the sentiment... more so it doesn't agree with me. I fall every time I forget to take my sunnies indoors, really. With the amount of spikes I wear at times, I'm surprised I haven't bursted an artery haha. I love your writing though it's so free and genius.

    Kisses, China L.

  8. I'll sometimes wear my sunglasses inside but only my lightly tinted aviators, not usually my dark big sunglasses. I feel like I'm trying to be too cool for school.

  9. Did you see her on 60 Minutes last night? She seems not as evil as I thought...


  10. Bonjour !

About Me

My photo
I am an immigrant. I was born in the caribbean and wish i was there rather than having to deal with the sporadic weather of chicago. I love fashion. My family is crazy, and blogging is a hobby that keeps me sane. I also strongly believe that it doesn't take money to look good, it just takes innate style.


thanks couturecarrie!<3
