Return of the Shield Sunglasses
At the People's Party at BlogHer, Fox Entertainment provided a photo op with Blu from the movie Rio. I donned a pair of ridiculously large shield sunglasses and poses in front of the green screen. Afterward, I loved the photo and the look!
I returned home with a quest for a pair of shield sunglasses. NYS Collection came through with a large collection of contemporary sunglasses including many shield types.
When I put on my new retro sunglasses, Doug looked at me and said that was nothing, he had an original pair of Bausch & Lomb Wings sunglasses from the 80's and produced the Yoko Ono-like sunglasses in a cordoroy covered case. I looked online and a genuine vintage pair of B&L Wings runs for nearly $300! Back when I met Doug in the 90's, I remembered seeing these sunglasses and heartily laughed at their shape. Who knew they would come back in style and be worth so much?

Thankfully, the NYS Collection including Jersey Shore sunglasses are available for $19.99 at NYS Kiosks in shopping-centers across the US. I love the updated styling. Check out my kids as they model them.
Adam is a cool dude.
Way too big but way cute on Dova's small face. Watch out for that movie star attitude!
Special thanks to NYS Collection for providing a pair of sunglasses for review. No other compensation was given.
