I wear my designer sunglasses at night, but mostly during the day. When it comes to the shades I sport around town, only designer labels will do. People wonder why I embrace the blinding rays of the sun over nameless shades. Well, call me a ‘Shades Snob,’ but I prefer my sunglasses to stand for something. Regular sunglasses are just two pieces of plastic over your eyes that are bound to break at any minute. Sure they shield you from the sun, but as a lover of all things designer, I just can’t do the generic shades thing. I prefer to see the world through my rose-colored Valentinos as I walk the sunny streets of NYC Nicole Riche style looking toward a bright future. My Juicy Couture shades come in the most awesome pink case bearing the Juicy logo and an ultra-girly aura. I intend to save up for a pair of classic Chanel sunglasses, not for the C’s on the side, but for the person they stand for. It is my belief that my wardrobe should have a life of it’s own. The legendary Coco Chanel once summed up my obsession with designer fashion when she said, “How many cares one loses when one decides not to be something, but to be someone.”
