Perfect Pair

2015-08-16 at 13-33-06 Montreal, Canada

UV protectors, eye-gouging preventers,  hangover concealers, and general coolness creators…my baby blues’ shields certainly have a lot on their resumés. Eyewear is one incredibly utilitarian piece of every #OOTD in both the practical and aesthetic sense. Basically these bad boys should make their way onto your face every time you put yourself together, unless it’s dark out of course…we all know that guy…don’t be that guy.

Due to my sunnies enthusiast status, I was beyond thrilled when VU SUNGLASS proposed a collaboration so I could have my way with their new home try on experience.  In case you’re not in the loop, VU has been a Montreal eyewear staple boutique since 1985, and they recently launched their online store VU SUNGLASS, so you can experience the largest selection of fashion-forward frames in North America without ever having to leave the comfort of your keyboard. Oh, and did I mention every single pair on the site, from Balenciaga to Cutler and Gross, is trend relevant and effortlessly cool, because they all really are.

This is why the picking and choosing part was a little tougher then tough. Decisions will be the death of me….no really, so I was thrilled when I learned I could take 3 home with me to meet the family, and then keep the ones I loved most to add to my little collection. As part of their new home try on experience, you have 30 days to make your choice, to avoid the stress that comes with decision-making…but if you, like me, simply don’t care to make decisions at all, VU is offering a 30 % discount on your second pair and 50 % on the third pair.

Pictured are the three culprits that made their way into my home, and then into my heart. As I said, decisions are not my strong suit, so I may have adopted more then one. Can you guess which? 2015-08-16 at 13-06-38 2015-08-16 at 13-37-19 2015-08-16 at 13-03-14 2015-08-16 at 13-42-10 2015-08-16 at 13-04-42 2015-08-16 at 13-35-15 2015-08-16 at 13-01-37 2015-08-16 at 13-47-20
